What do I need to do when hiring a skip?

If you’ve realised you need to hire a skip to get rid of bulk waste or for an upcoming project, here are the things you need to do before you can order a skip.

Firstly, You need a reasonable estimate of how much waste you are going to need to dispose of. It’s best to be conservative with your estimate so that you can fit all your waste in the skip. A sound estimate will allow you to remove all the waste you need while not overspending on a skip far too large for your needs.

The best way to do this is to try and think about how many standard bin bags you’d likely fill. From there you can use our book a skip page to see which skip holds a similar amount of bin bags.

Secondly, it’s important to consider where the skip will be placed when it’s delivered to your home. Ensure that you either have adequate private property space for the skip you want to order, or there is adequate space on the public road outside your house. We provide measurements of all our skips so you are in the best position to ensure there will be room.
