Why would you hire a skip?

Hiring a skip is going to cost you more than you might think….

If you’ve got a job to do that will generate a lot of waste, you might think that you need to hire a skip, after all that’s what most people would do without a second thought, but how do you know how much waste you’ll need to get rid of?

Most skip hire companies charge by the size of the skip, offering a fixed price for a few different sizes such as mini, midi or maxi – but will your waste fit in one of these sizes of skips? Unfortunately, if you guess wrongly, the skip hire company will charge you extra to take it away.

  • You’ll need to organise a skip permit with the council if it needs to be placed on the road;
  • The skip hire company won’t help you load the skip with your rubbish;
  • You pay for the entire skip full, not just what you need to get rid of;
  • Several types of items aren’t allowed – such as hazardous or very bulky items
