Trash Pack Time

By Swaggie - 28 July 2009 36

So as yet another Trash Pack sits waiting for a collection now 5 weeks overdue I’m asking Rioters for their nominations for a reliable and reasonably priced Trash Pack service in the Tuggeranong area.

The clowns we currently use, “Mick’s Trash Packs”, used to be good but the last year has seen lousy service and they’re currently 5 weeks late so it’s time to change.

Any suggestions?

What’s Your opinion?

Well I feel cheated, threepaws. A good rant is a wonderful thing.

Why are there so many shonks in rubbish?

I just wrote a comment about Mick’s Trash Paks that would have been in the running for Flame of the Week.

I felt cleansed and deleted it.

Stay away from them.

I used Toms track paks for a couple of years and got sick of there rude and lack of service I rang around a few different trash pack companys and found no one was interested in picking up any new work I then came across Yard Tidy and have been with them for years now the owner is such a nice guy and nothing is to much effort for them

Don’t try AAA. Unfortunately the principal owner/driver is now deceased and they are 2+ months behind.

Since the owner was only accidentally killed on 27th June, I don’t see how they could be 2+ months behind.

Understandably, there were some delays as his poor wife had to employ and train drivers, not to mention bury him.

And if your pack is empty you can just ring before the pickup date and ask them not to pick it up.

But don’t let all of that stop you from trying to steer potential customers away.

Apologise profusely if my comments were construed as inconsiderate. I put up an opinion based on personal experience.

They were always late for us. The reason given was initially that as a rural run it was hard to keep drivers and they kept having to retrain staff. Then we were told our run was outsourced and there will be further delays while that was being sorted out. Now they are 2 months plus late and given the cicumstances not likely to be back on track for a while.

ACT Trash Packs 6258 0122. I have used them for years and never had a problem. I think it is a small husband and wife company.

What about Tom’s trash packs? No longer owned by Tom – but providing a reliable service nonetheless…..

I may be wrong, but I think Tom’s Trash Packs are franchised out – so the reliability of service rests with the individual franchisee, rather than the brand per se.

So the bottom line is, all these providers are rubbish…………..

This mob: Canberra All Suburbs Rubbish Removals Phone: 0403 741 350

can be somewhat exciting to deal with: a colleague was abused when she called them about having some boxes removed! They’re still listed in the local business guide, but don’t seem to be in the yellow pages any more.

Agree re AAA, they’ve also started charging us for emptying our empty bag. They used to be good though.

Cut Price Trash Paks, $22 per month and they don’t charge if it is empty!

Hah! and if it is “overfull”, they refuse to take it, leave a second pack and charge you for both when you have emptied half into the new pack. we have started looking for a new provider as well.
