About AOT

AOT Skip Bins is a 100% family owned and operated business, servicing the Southern, Central and Western suburbs of South Australia. When we say family owned business, we actually mean that. Even our name represents our family. People often ask me, “Beau, what does AOT stand for?” As you can guess, coming up with a business name can be hard, so I focused on what is most important to me, and that is my children, Aaliyah, Oliver and Taylor. And from there, AOT Services Group and AOT Skip Bins was born.

AOT Skip Bins prides itself on its reputation for fast, reliable and friendly service. Hiring a skip bin may seem to be fairly standard, but it is the service you receive that truly sets your experience apart. Having AOT Garden & Property Maintenance for the past 2 years, I have built a loyal clientele, based upon good, honest and reliable service. And that is what AOT Skip Bins offers as well. It is at the core of all that we do, how we train our staff, and how we communicate with our customers.

Before we started AOT Skip Bins, we too were residential and commercial customers of other skip bin hire companies. We used them to do spring cleans around our home, or when we were doing garden renovations for clients and my pet peeve with all of these companies was their lack of communication and ability to get back to me in a timely manner, if at all. Time after time, I would call a company, leave a message regarding the hire of a skip bin, only to be left hanging waiting for a phone call back. When we started AOT Skip Bins, communication became one of our main focuses. Sure, we may not be able to answer the phone, first time, every time, but we will always get back to you in a quick, timely manner. We understand your time is precious, and that you want your questions answered then and there and to place a booking with minimal fuss. We pride ourselves in our communication with potential and current customers.

Another thing that always really gets my goat is the lack of presentation of the skip bins, the skip bin truck and the people delivering the bins. If you are going to have a bin in your yard for 4 days, at least make sure it looks half decent. Yes, these skip bins get bruised and battered on a regular basis, but we aim to make sure our bins are better presented than the next skip bin company, that our truck is keep respectable, (it too gets bruised and battered by the bins), and that our staff are neatly presented. We feel this is a reflection of how we run our business.

No matter how big or how small your rubbish removal needs are we have bins for hire to suit your job and your budget. Our bin sizes range from 2 cubic metres to 9 cubic metres. In addition to our strong work ethic we ensure that our bins are specifically engineered to facilitate easy loading, with every bin except our 2 cubic meter skip fitted with a rear access door to make things easier.  AOT Skip Bins is competitively priced in the South Australian market, and is always more than happy to match a price if you have been quoted less elsewhere. We have no hidden fees and charges like some other skip bin companies. AOT will inform you of additional fees for items such as mattresses and weight restrictions on certain types of waste bins. We will not surprise you later with a bill for excess weight; we will inform you upon booking the bin of these conditions so you can make an educated decision for yourself. Be careful of the companies that neglect to tell you this information at the time of booking your bin. Commercial customers, please phone 1300 30 12 64 and speak with Beau about the rates he can offer for long and short term hirer.

AOT have experienced, friendly and helpful staff to answer any and all of your questions. I know many companies may say that, and it is taken as a given, but not all skip bin companies are equal. As a person who used to hire skip bins regularly, I can tell you, not everyone is helpful over the phone. AOT Skip Bins will take the time to answer your questions, help you ascertain what size bin you need, inform you of what can and can’t go in your skip bins, and help you in discussing the best place to place your bin upon delivery. Heck, we even give you a little pack on the delivery of your bin, with reminders of what can and can’t go in your skip bin, plus some helpful tips.

We offer short term and long term hire, all with prompt delivery. We can look after you no matter what the size of the job. AOT Skip Bins take pride in being able to accommodate all types of customer needs, residential and commercial.

We are strongly committed to the safe and responsible management of waste and take pride in the highest quality safety and service. At AOT Skip Bins we don’t unnecessarily send materials to landfill. Like many of you, we are conscious of the environmental impact of waste and how we can each play our role in protecting our precious environment. We are constantly evaluating the way we dispose of waste and are always up to date with the current trends in waste disposal and recycling. Whatever waste you have, we will deal with it in a very environmentally conscious manner, we will ensure that!

We provide our customers a secure and convenient way of booking a skip bin online without wasting time searching the internet and at a very competitive price. However, if you would like to phone and order a skip bin you speak directly to us and not a call centre, which ensures you with the most expert advice and accurate pickup and delivery times.

We are able to assist you with any inquiry about commercial or domestic bin collection and hire from 7:30am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday and 8am – 2:00pm on Saturdays. However, if you phone 1300 30 12 064 after hours, you will more than likely get put through to one of our staff who can help answer your questions. After 8pm, if you leave a message, someone will return your call the following morning. To arrange your skip bin hire, visit our online booking system, or for more information contact us today on 1300 30 12 64.

Beau Schutz

My name is Beau Schutz and I am the owner/operator of AOT Garden & Property Maintenance. Recently we had a name change to AOT Services Group as we have branched out and created new services, including AOT Skip Bins to offer you, my valued customers. I think it is important to get to know your customers, what their needs and wants are so I can offer the best service. So in return, I think it is important that you get to know a bit about who I am. I have 3 wonderful children, Taylor 14, Aaliyah 12 and Oliver 6 who keep my hands full when I am not working. I have a fiancé Rowena, who helps me out with the business (you’ll probably be hearing from/about her soon). I play professional lawn bowls and have done so since I was young – the body doesn’t hold up quite like it used too. I play pennants for Ascot Park Bowls Club, making it through to the grand final this weekend as the minor premiers.

Rowena Helps

Hi everyone, I’m Rowena and I work behind the scenes at AOT Services Group. I help Beau with all his accounts, emails and marketing of the business. Along with Beau’s 3 beautiful children, Beau and I recently celebrated our engagement with friends and family and look forward to our up and coming wedding in 2016. We enjoyed a laid back Sunday session, with close friends and family in the Adelaide Hills (see the picture below – Beau doesn’t scrub up too bad hey?)
