Frequently Asked Questions

1. How do I hire a cardboard baler?

All our waste baling equipment is listed on our website but we recommend you get in contact with us to arrange a completely free and no-obligation visit from one of our team. They will help you review our range of options to help you decide which cardboard baler to hire from us as it will depend on your waste volumes, how it will be powered and budget. In most cases, if you're based in the UK, we'll offer you a free baler trial. Once we've quoted you a price for cardboard baler hire and the likely savings you'll make on your waste collection costs, we'll leave you to decide if you wish to proceed.

2. Do you have to hire a waste baler for different types of waste?

In general, when you rent a waste baler for cardboard waste it'll also be able to bale your soft plastic waste, in effect giving you two waste balers for the price of one! However, there are some exceptions to this including baling hard plastics (eg fruit trays/plant pots etc), cans, drums where you may require a more heavy-duty machine. There are also some waste types that require specialist baling machines for example polystyrene. The good news is you do not need to navigate this decision making process alone as our Waste Experts are here to find the right solution for you. If your waste type is slightly unusual, we can also do some material trials with our baling machines to check which one will be more efficient.

3. Are all your cardboard balers available to hire?

We have small, medium and large cardboard baler hire options, not forgetting our range of mill size balers available to hire for larger businesses. We are providing waste baler hire to thousands of customers in the UK, with small cardboard baler hire being one of the most popular options available. We have three distribution centres across the UK enabling us to offer waste baler hire to the majority of the UK (with only some postcodes that logistically we cannot offer the same level of service to). Due to the number of hire customers we have, we can also offer great deals on ex-rental used cardboard balers which have been fully refurbished by our team.

We have all types of vertical cardboard balers available to hire.
