“Very expensive option”

Written on: 03/06/2016 by nigelwilliams (2 reviews written)

I got a Hipposkip as a stop gap whilst waiting for a proper skip. Discovered when I got it home that it can only be a quarter full of rubble - the promotional material in store and online does not make this clear. I essentially got a capacity of a 1 yard skip for a total cost of a 4 yard builders skip. Frankly a waste of money. I would not recommend this option if you are doing any kind of building work… Read Full Review

Portsmouthjack's Response to nigelwilliams's Review

Written on: 06/06/2016

This company is in dire financial difficulties at present!! I have experienced there terrible customer service and collection drivers one namely from Portsmouth, mr I know it all but didn't have a clue right numpety I train new drivers I am number one in the company yeh whatever!!

Can't beat a proper skip and who wants to pay hippo waste prices £190 for a tiny bag that only handles 1 ton what is the point total rip off never again!!

Avoid at your peril awful customer service I go to wickes now and get 1 ton bags for a fiver miles cheaper and take down the dump myself!

“Scare tactics”

Written on: 16/05/2014 by Faithy479 (1 review written)

The bag was fine and the drivers picked it up with no problems. My complaint is with the unhelpful and rude telephone operators who tried to cajole more money out of me for no reason whatsoever. Would NEVER use them again. Get a real skip!… Read Full Review

“Poor Up Front Information”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by KGASymons (1 review written)

I ordered the 1.5 ton Hippobag on-line and of course just like everyone else in the world ticked the box about agreeeing to the small print T&C's. When I cam to book the collection I was asked if a 15t wide vehicle could access my bag (no I live in a rural converted barnwith a fairly narrow garvel drive). So I used my tow bar to drag the bag nearer the entrance of the drive which is much widerand tried to book the collection again. This time i was asked if the bag was within 12 Feet of the… Read Full Review

“Be Very Careful”

Written on: 14/07/2013

My bag was left on my wide path about 7 metres from the road, access for even a very large grab lorry would be simple. It was 2/3 full of building rubble so it would have been a very easy loading operation. It turned out that Hippobag had specified 4 metres which I had overlooked, I accept that this was my error. But the driver simply drove away, without bothering to ring the bell so that we could work out a solution. The office told me that he had called at 7AM and that their drivers are… Read Full Review

“Failure to collect”

Written on: 16/05/2013 by Bromiley (1 review written)

A Hippo bag was recommended by my builder so I bought one. However it is now 9 days (7 working days) since I booked collection and it has still not been picked up. I have phoned and been told it will be collected in the next few days, when a driver is next in the vicinity. The bag is taking up a residents' parking place where I live which is causing me problems with neighbours. I will not be using this service again. It would have been quicker, cheaper and more efficient to take it to the… Read Full Review
