Easy to order online the bag was delivered very quickly. The collection was prompt. I have used this service twice now and I am very
impressed, I will definitely use HIPPO again. The bags are great if you are limited on space and you can't fit a skip in.

I have used HIPPOBAGs to help me with household rubbish. Lovley concept..get a huge folded bag in the post put it some where

Bought a HIPPOBAG from B&Q

Bought a HIPPOBAG from B&Q. It is very easy to fill. Put it on the front drive. Collection was easily arranged and paid for
online. The collection was a couple of days after booking and didn't need anybody to be present. So easy. This is the
second time I have had a HIPPOBAG and I would use them again.
