5 Ways to Make the Most of Your Skip Hire


5 Ways to make the most of your skip hireOnline skip hire has never been easier. The Internet gives us the flexibility to decide which skip size we need and when we need it Whether it's for a general house spring clean, a house renovation, a loft conversation or a garden project, skips can help you manage your waste.

Here are 5 ways for you to make the most of your skip hire

1. Be careful when choosing the skip size

It’s common for people to want to hire the smallest skip in order to save money. People may also choose the smallest skip size because they are concerned they do not have sufficient space to store the skip. Do your research beforehand in order to get the skip size you actually need. Be realistic with the waste you have. If you know it will be a tight fit, then don’t risk hiring the smallest size. Instead, go up a size until you are confident it will be big enough to get rid of all your rubbish in one go. Otherwise you may have to hire another skip at another time, or take several trips to the tip.

2. Use The Space Efficiently

Don’t just throw stuff into the skip. Not only can this be potentially dangerous as it can lead to injuries from straining and lifting heavy items, but you don’t know if children or pets have climbed into the skip. By placing the items carefully in the skip, you can ensure all the space is used. Wherever possible, break the rubbish down to use less space. This is especially effective for packaging boxes and furniture. Ensuring all the space is used efficiently will mean you can fit more waste in, but keep an eye on the levels to ensure you do not overfill the skip.

3. Consider The Timing Carefully

Think carefully about what free time you have to use the skip. It is common to hire a skip for 2 weeks, giving you plenty of time to finish your projects. However, if you think the project will not take that long, consider a one day hire skip. This reduces the need for a permit as the rubbish gets removed immediately. If you plan the timing carefully, you can have the rubbish outside of your home all ready for collection, saving you precious time.

4. Combine Your House Jobs

Rather than having to hire a skip several times, try and time your projects so that you can use the same skip for more than one project. For example, if you are doing a house clear out, do you have time to combat the garden shed clear out you were also planning on tackling at some point? If you have a skip hired for two weeks, you can easily combine your jobs to get the most out of your skip hire.

5. Check what items you want to get rid of in advance

Before you hire a skip, try to plan what items you will need to get rid of. It’s easy to think that skips are able to take away any rubbish for you but this is not the case. Before you hire a skip, read which items you are and are not allowed to place in the skip. Knowing this information in advance will save you from placing any forbidden item in there and will also impact the size of the skip you will need.

Here are just 5 things you should consider before hiring a skip so that you can ensure you make the most of it and are as productive as possible.
