Dump Bins: Buyer’s Guide

If you’re considering investing in dump bins for your store or upcoming event, you’re in the right place. Today we’re taking you through everything you need to know to make a decision on choosing the perfect point of sale (POS) solution for you.

From boosting revenue to shifting stock and creating extra shelf space, read on the find out more about how dump bins could be the POS solution you’ve been looking for and how to maximise their impact on your sales floor.

What are dump bins?

Offering product storage space and an advertising solution in one, dump bins are free standing display units – ideal for displaying and shifting fast moving consumer goods (FMCGs), impulse purchases and discounted lines. A favourite among retailers for the extra storage space they offer alongside their attractive signage and transportability, dump bins are ideal for driving sales and seasonal products.

Beyond retail, display bins are also the perfect POS solution for events. Lightweight and easy to transport and assemble on the day, dump bins are well suited to displaying freebies and event giveaways, as well as any merchandise you may be selling on the day.

Why should I use them in my store or at my next event?

Dump bins are the ultimate call to action. Whether you’re pushing a promotional offer, discounted lines or seasonal goods, they put your product range front and centre in your store, without the need to re-merchandise shelving.

Available in fully customisable designs, you can tailor dump bins to specific offers or even just order them in your store or business’s brand colours – allowing you to use them for multiple sales drives. Eye-catching and easily movable, they’re ideal for busy retail environments – encouraging link purchases and impulse buys in and around the point of sale – increasing the total value of each basket going through the till.

Beyond their promotional capabilities, dump bins also provide the most valuable resource of all when it comes to retail – shelf space. Temporary and movable, yet durable enough to withstand plenty of time on the selling floor, reinforced cardboard dump bins offer the perfect solution for excess stock or a heavy sales period, where fixed shelf space is at its highest premium.

Delivered flat packed, cardboard display bins can be kept in the stock room, taking up minimal space, and pulled out for assembly when needed. This allows retailers to remain flexible and reactive to promotional offers, seasonal events and other key points in the retail sales calendar.

For example, if one of your product lines is selling like hot cakes, dump bins give you the capability of ordering more stock to cope with demand – keeping it all on the shop floor and within the customer’s line of sight, rather than clogging up your stockroom and disrupting the sale of core lines.

Which products are best suited to dump bins?

While retail display bins share a number of common uses, but there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to which products to push – so experiment with different ranges to see what works for your store or event.

Due to their ‘pile ‘em high’ nature, dump bins lend themselves well to smaller goods which won’t be damaged if stacked on the display. For product ranges which need to stand upright or be aligned in rows, shelved FSDUs offer a fantastic alternative.

Depending on where you intend to place dump bins in your store or event space, you may want to adjust your product placement for optimum sales. Queuing systems are ideal for last minute purchases that shoppers may have forgotten on their route around the store or impulse purchases they may be tempted with moments before parting with their cash.

Dump bins can also be placed in key hotspots around the store, making them perfect for highlighting link purchases or free gifts alongside particular product lines.

Entry ways are also an ideal area to locate dump bin displays, highlighting any particular promotions running as soon as the customer enters the store (or even enticing them into the store in the first place).

Designing your dump bin

Whether you’re looking for dump bins for shops or upcoming events, every inch of display space is precious when it comes to commanding the attention of potential customers – and dump bins are no exception.

As an added bonus, dump bins are multifunctional – offering a handy storage space, an attractive display and a freestanding advert for the goods inside.

When it comes to designing your dump bin, the possibilities are virtually limitless. Whether you’re looking for retail display bins to promote a specific in-store offer or general additional shelf space to use throughout the retail year, designs can be tailored for a perfect fit.

From black and orange dump bins to promote Halloween offers to generic 10%, 25% and 50% off dump bins allowing you to shift old stock with ease, they’re an essential part of any retailer’s merchandising arsenal.

Call to action colours such as red, orange and yellow are perfect for grabbing attention and highlighting offers and flash sales. On the flip side, muted colours, greys and blacks can be chosen to attract discerning shoppers looking for luxury or an indulgent treat to add to their basket.

Whatever your branding or campaign, the humble cardboard dump bin can be transformed into an eye-catching and impactful display thanks to the latest techniques in digital design and printing.

This can be particularly helpful when it comes to sales, where customers are often left confused as to what’s discounted and what’s not.
