Hiring a skip is a great option for people in the construction business and for even small time contractors. It is the best way to collect all the disposable waste and garbage without having to have multiple bins or trash bags everywhere.

So hire a skip and have all your waste related worries dumped away. If you don’t know where to start, here is a guide for you so that it is easier for you to do so. From hiring the cheapest skip to different types of skips, we have got it all covered.

  1. De-cluttering made easy

If there is one thing a skip does best it is that it de-clutters and clears away any waste in a quick and efficient manner. Many people underestimate skips and think that it’s the job of the garbage disposal company to clear everything away but you will be doing your neighbourhood a huge favour by setting a good example of managing your own waste properly. Whether you are organising an event at your company, a wedding, building houses etc hiring a skip would do wonders for you. You just need to find the right deal and cheapest skip hire so that everything can be well under your budget.

  1. Choosing the size

You have to be really careful about choosing the right size skip because if it is too big it will be a total waste and you would have paid more than what you would require. Alternatively, if it was the other way around by you hiring a small skip that won’t be able to contain all of the waste at your end then it would be a huge hassle as well. You need to then order 1 or 2 more skips and that is going to cost you as well. So you need to ensure that you hire the right skip by determining how much waste you will have to dispose off.

Generally we prefer you hire a medium to large size skip so that all of your garbage disposal needs are met easily.  Since they come in different sizes and prices for rent, hiring the cheapest skip can be really easy for you.

Different size skips

Mini or small skips—they are good for your regular and small household chores or carpentry needs, gardening and other do-it-yourself things.

Medium skips—if you are redesigning your home such as refurbishing or remodelling the kitchen, adding a patio or removing waste from your garden, then a medium cheapest skip hire is your best option.

Builder skip:

This is ideal for all the construction workers and contractors out there who have some heavy duty work to do and therefore require a heavy duty skip to dispose the waste.

Caution: when using a builder skip, ensure to be out of the way when the garbage or construction materials are being thrown in such as steel rods, concrete slabs or bricks etc. You don’t want to hurt yourself or injure others in the process in doing so.

  1. Permits

If you are using medium to large size skips; chances are you will be having them outside your home because they won’t be large enough to fit inside the entrance area. You will need to have a permit from your local council to allow you to place your skip out on the road.
