Buying Trash Bin Cleaning Equipment 101 

Up until recently there was only one option available and that was to buy a complete bin cleaning system from one of the current high priced manufactures.  That is no longer the case.  Bin Wash Systems now offers a modular Wash Bay and Bin Lifter.  This is a game changer!  Now you can assemble a complete system yourself. 

As you make equipment decisions here are two ways to purchase bin washing equipment you should consider.


Purchase & Assemble Individual Components 

If you want to get into the business with a low start up cost this may be the best option. The parts required to build a bin washing system are readily available to you just as they are to the manufactures that build the complete systems. By purchasing the required parts yourself you save money by cutting out all the markups, overhead and commissions that come with the ready to use manufacturers prices.

This option also allows you to take control of your start up costs. You may want to consider buying some used equipment to save even more money. The Bin Wash Systems Wash Bay & Lifter Kit makes it possible to get up and running quickly at a low cost.

Advantages  

  • Low start up cost.
  • Purchase components direct.
  • Purchase new or used equipment.
  • Easy to assemble.
  • Get up and running quickly.

Disadvantages

  • Requires some of your time.
  • You must be relatively handy or comfortable hiring someone that is.

Purchase a Ready to Use System

Order a system completely put together and ready to go from companies like HCS Hydro Chem systems or Sparking Bins.  You won’t have to do any work but you’ll be paying a lot to have them do everything for you.  On average you can expect to spend anywhere from $50,000.00 to $90,000.00 for a trailer set up.

There are some things to keep in mind when looking at this option. The more you pay for your equipment the longer the pay back.  Paying more for your equipment doesn’t mean you can charge more for bin cleanings.

Advantages  

  • Don’t have to be involved in the design, ordering components or assembly.
  • Manufacturer will quote a fixed cost for your equipment package.

Disadvantages  

  • Expensive.
  • Limited set up options.
