Are you finally getting around to that home renovation or clear out but think the prospect of having a root canal is more appealing than driving back and forth to the local tip for hours?
Maybe hiring a skip could be the answer.
Hiring a skip for any domestic project comes with a number of benefits, allowing you to fully focus on the task at hand. From carrying out home renovations and garden clear-outs, to intense spring cleans and even preparing to move house.
To help you decide whether hiring a skip could make your project that little bit easier, we’ve rounded up four of the top benefits to skip hire in Chorley.
Hiring a skip is easy to arrange
Booking a skip couldn’t be easier. Simply ring your chosen provider and explain your situation. They may ask questions about the items you’ll be putting in the skip and the length of time you’ll need the skip for. This is just so they can understand your requirements and suggest the most suitable skip for you.
Your chosen provider may also ask where you’ll be wanting to place the skip. This is because, unless a skip is kept on your private property, you may require a permit from your local council. But don’t worry, the skip hire company will more than likely take care of this on your behalf.
Before arranging your skip, it’s worth having a real think about your project to get an idea of what size skip you’ll need. Realistically, how much waste will you be getting rid of? If you’re ripping out a bathroom then you’ll probably need a larger skip than someone emptying their garden shed.
Save time on waste disposal
When it comes to any home renovation or clear out, disposing of your waste takes up a significant amount of time. Your wheelie bin and car boot can only fit so many bags of rubbish, which means numerous trips to dispose of your rubbish and waste.
That’s where a skip comes into the equation.
Typically, domestic skips come in three sizes – 2-yards, 4-yards and 8-yards. To put these sizes into perspective, a 2-yard mini skip can fit between 20 – 30 bin bags, a 4-yard midi skip can fit around 30 – 40 and an 8-yard maxi skip can hold around 60-80.
This variety of sizes allows you to book the skip best suited for your job, ensuring you get the most out of it, but most importantly saving you time trekking to and from the tip.
Skip collection is simple
Skip collection is even more straightforward than booking your skip.
Most skip providers have a maximum length of hire, usually around three weeks.
In most cases, this is plenty of time to get everything thrown out.
Whether it be a weekend hire or a couple of weeks, you can advise the company of how long you’ll be requiring your skip for when making your booking. Your skip hire company will then arrange to collect your skip after this amount of time.
It’s easy to overestimate the length of time you’ll need your skip for. If this is the case for you, just give your provider a call when you’re finished with it and they’ll arrange to pick your skip up at a time and date that suits you, often within 48 hours. Likewise, if you need your skip for longer than first expected, get in touch with the company to see whether they can accommodate this.
Much of the waste will get recycled
Since changes to UK and EU legislation in 2018, skip hire companies now need to ensure they’re recycling as much waste material as possible. So, hiring a skip from a reputable provider will give you peace of mind that you’re helping the environment.
Yes, you could separate your waste into your separate recycling bins, but this all adds up when it comes to the amount of time you’ll spend away from your project. Imagine how much time it would take to separate all the waste, plus, if you’re already considering hiring a skip, chances are this rubbish won’t fit into your recycling bins anyway.
