A Rubbish Bin Mover moving bins at Scarbrough

Residential Apartment in Scarbrough purchases Rubbish Bin Mover Tug to help move bins

MasterMover Australia

Traders in Purple is the largest private developer in the Illawarra region of New South Wales and the Redcliffe Peninsula in Queensland. As creators of luxury living environments, they conceive projects with lifestyle amenity and leisure in mind.

We received a call from Brett who had a new residential apartment block opening up in Scarbrough, and needed some help moving some rubbish bins.

The rubbish bin mover that we sell is a AT200 Electric Tug from MasterMover.

The rubbish bins they have are 1100litre bins, provided by SULO and using a bracket that is installed on the bins, it allows the operator to simply connect the bins up to a drawbar attachment and pull the bins around the complex.

Retailquip went out onsite and inspected the environment and the rubbish bins along with an AT200 Electric Tug from MasterMover.

After demonstrating the Electric Tug to the complex manager, and Brett from Traders In Purple we were able to offer a easy to use solution, which involved connecting the Bins up to the AT200 Tug which allowed them to move their bins safely and easy – all at the controls of the MasterMover.

The AT200 has 2 speeds, Fast & Slow which gives great control and safety to manouevre, along with a Anti Crush button in the event they get into tight spaces. The draw bar and attachment allows a secure connection to the rubbish bin, and then it’s just a matter of connecting it up, and steering it to the kerbside for pickup.

Roll Cages rented to help install Sneeze Guards for Supermarkets against COVID-19

“….The product is amazing – they have made this last week of logistics seamless for us.” -Ryan

Earlier this month we were contacted by a Signage Company in NSW to originally help supply some Stillages to load up on their trucks to install Sneeze Guards in the majority of supermarkets in the Country.

The biggest challenge was to solve the logistics of delivering the bulky product to office buildings.

Richard Pratsch, NSW State Manager recommended the Foldia XL as it offered a wider base to suit the product – and offer an easier mode of transport from Factory to Shopping Centre.

After reviewing the product, they decided to rent some of the cages and found that it actually was a more suitable option. The Foldia XL was the perfect length to load, carry & transport the Sneeze Guards across to the shopping centres for install.

“..The cages allowed us to pack high volume of product on our trucks but also get the product into the building and most importantly into the elevators. The Shop fitters loved them…” -Ryan

For more information on the Foldia XL, simply drop us an email at visit our website at or contact us on 1300 011 555 to discuss your requirements and see how Retailquip can help.

Hotel Chain purchases an Electric Tug to help safely move heavy Rubbish Bins

MasterMover Australia

A few months ago, we were approached by a Hotel Chain, in Brisbane’s CBD that had a big problem moving their heavy rubbish bins on bin day. The challenge was actually not just the driveway and car park area, but also the size of these commercial steel bins supplied by the council.

Retailquip went out, on site and did a site assessment to determine the right product to suit their needs.

One of the biggest risks with safety, was moving the bin outside of the rubbish bin area, and then up the driveway. Moving the bin out, and then turning it around to go up the driveway caused a number of key Health & Safety Issues including wrist & back injuries, and not to mention the danger of moving the bins and loosing grip and it rolling down potentially hitting a car or worse a bystander.

The solution was clear, and with the help of Retailquip we worked together on a MasterMover AT200 Electric Tug to help move their bins.

Through the help of Brisbane City Council, who provided the attachment to connect the bins to our machine, Retailqup supplied a 50mm Tow Ball and the AT200 Electric Tug which would move the bins with controlled steering, and the ability to safely manouevre around the complex.

With forward & reverse controls – the AT200 also features controlled power steering, along with 2 speed settings (Fast/Slow) and a Warning Horn for attention.

It also features a Anti Crush system, so that you can’t get yourself injured in tight spaces.

They are recommended for those who own or operate retail locations, warehouses and laundry facilities however they can be used in many other commercial settings.

Working with our customers, we developed the basket shelf as an option for a variety of applications, e.g pick & pack companies find them especially useful for a variety of product lines – including health care, food, general merchandise and small or loose items.

You can easily mix & match your shelving combinations by placing several shelves in a standard Retailquip Roll Cage. The see-through mesh-style design of our heavy duty wire baskets allows you to view the contents in order to save time and simplify storage.

These high quality basket shelves aren’t only used as ready display shelving, they also make it incredibly easy to transport products directly from the delivery truck to your storage area or the display room floor.

When not in use, you can easily stack the Basket Shelves together by nesting the units together (placing them on top of one another) for storage, taking up less space on your show room or warehouse floor.

David Xu, Manager of our Retailquip New Zealand office, successfully introduced 2 Electric Tugs to a company who designs and builds forestry harvesting and processing heads.

Electric Tug used in Forestry Plant

With parts & supplies weighing anywhere from 4 to 8 tonne, Retailquip New Zealand demonstrated their MasterMover product; initially the MT400 for trial purposes and after successful testing & feedback they purchased both a MT400 and MT1200.

The MasterTug400 can easily move up to 4,000kg, and the MT1200 can also move heavy loads up to 12,000kg by push, pull or steering wheeled loads with the ability to steer through a full 180° and hydraulics that help create an incredible amount of traction.

Both David, and Kevin provided delivery onsite, as well as MasterMover training & safety instructions to staff.

Below is a quick video of the demonstration and moving the bins around the complex, without any resistance, strain and quite easily demonstrates how easily this makes the task safe, simple & quick.

Sunshine Coast Electric Tug to move Rubbish Bin up to 2000kg

MasterMover Australia

The last couple of months we’ve received a lot of interest in our Rubbish Bin Mover that features a MasterMover Electric AT200 Tug pulling Waste Rubbish Bins up a 14 degree slope.

The AT200 is an Electric Tug safely towing loads where weight transfer is not possible, up to 2,000 kg

Mark Grindey, our National Service Manager gave another demonstration yesterday, to an apartment block on the Sunshine Coast with a fairly steep incline where the building management were facing some issues pushing up the hill and maneuvering their bins around the complex on Bin Day.

Pushing heavy Rubbish Bin

The apartment complex itself has a number of different bins onsite, and with each bin weighing about 250kg full of rubbish every week, and an incline of about 11 degrees it made moving these bins quite difficult causing a number of Health & Safety issues for the staff.

The Body Corporate wanted to see how our Rubbish Bin Mover works with our Electric Tug and so we provided a onsite demonstration showing just how easy it is to move these Rubbish Bins together by installing the coupling device & drawbar to to the Bin & the MasterMover Electric Tug.
