There is a lot to consider when hiring a skip and this blog post is going to go over the basic things you should think about when considering what skip to hire and from which company.
What’s it for?
The reason you need a skip should indicate how big a skip you need. For example, if you are renovating or moving house you may need a rather large one as it will work out cheaper for you depending on how much waste you have.
On the other hand, if you are just decorating or doing a yearly or seasonal clear out you may only need a small one. It’s also a good idea to think about how much waste you will produce so you can hire the correct size. You might also want to bear in mind the council’s regulation as some won’t let you hire one larger than 8 yards.
Furthermore, depending where you are this may also impact your pricing as typically it is more expensive to hire a skip in the South than it would be if you were hiring one in the North. You will also need to check if you need a skip permit and if the waste you are disposing of needs a specific license or can in fact be disposed of by a skip.
Types of Skips
There are two main types of skips. There is a Mixed waste skip and an Inert Waste skip. Householders will more than likely need the mixed waste skip as you will be disposing of a broad mix of waste and materials and other rubbish. Alternatively, an Inert skip is used for disposing of things like concrete and sand or rubble etc. It’s shown that Inert waste skips cost less than mixed / general waste, but this is because these types of skips are mainly used by building companies rather than the general public.
