How to Reduce the Cost of Skip Hire

People hire a skip every day to assist with the disposal of unwanted waste. After all some items are unsuitable for a regular rubbish bin. Here at PWM Skip Hire, we want our customers to receive the best service possible which is why we are always looking for ways to make our skip hire as cost effective as possible. Here are a few ways you can reduce the cost of hiring a skip…


The price of a skip is often dictated by many different elements, including size. After all, the bigger the skip, the more expensive it will be to hire. In order to ensure that you make the right decision, you should asses the type of job that you are looking to complete and estimate how much debris you will need to dispose of. After all, hiring a skip that is too small can be an expensive mistake to fix.

Road Permit

If you are going to be leaving your skip on the roadside, it needs to have a permit. Otherwise, you can land yourself with an expensive fine that is often higher than the skip itself. Thankfully, most governments will issue these within 2 weeks so with a little bit of preparation, you can hire a skip without any hassle.


A skip can only be filled to a certain height as otherwise it will become too heavy for the hire company to load onto their van and remove. In fact, it is not uncommon for people to find themselves having to unload their skip to make it light enough to lift. Due to this, you should always ensure that you never overbear a skip as the cost of removing the debris left behind can be an expensive inconvenience.


Although there are dozens of materials that can be disposed of in a skip such as green waste, building debris and old furniture, there are also many things that cannot be placed inside a skip. Since hire companies tend to refuse to take skips with restricted items inside (such as electricals), you should do some research beforehand to prevent cashing out on a way to fix this kind of mistake.

Before you hire a skip, it is important to do your research and take different aspects into consideration. Otherwise you could find yourself strapped with a hefty fine or an overfilled skipped that the hire company refuses to take away!
