Skip Hire – Reasons To Hire A Skip

Whether you are planning on doing improvements to the interior of your home or to the exterior, as you will know depending on the job in hand you can potentially accumulate a lot of waste, as a result of this you can end up having to make numerous trips to your local waste depot or waste station, not only that though normally you would have to use your own vehicle to transport the waste, whilst this maybe fine for small amounts of waste that can fit into your boot, for larger amounts or waste you wouldn’t really want to transport yourself then one simple solution is to hire a skip from your local skip hire company.

Skips can normally be hired in a number of different sizes so you can choose one that is perfect for your particular requirement based on the job in hand, for example for smaller amounts of waste you may only need a 6 cubic metre mini skip, or for larger jobs you may need an 8 cubic metre maxi skip. Obviously skip sizes can vary depending on the company, the above are just examples.

Limitations: For health and safety reasons, there are certain items which you cannot dispose of in a skip, for example gas canisters, aerosols, clinical/medical waste, to name just a few. The skip hire company will no doubt have a list or advise you of any excluded items. cheap skips leeds 

Permit: If you are unable to park the skip on your own private driveway meaning that you have to park it on a public highway then you are required to obtain a permit from your local council, many skip hire companies will take care of this on your behalf, if not they will be able to advise you of how to go about obtaining a permit. Cost of permits may well vary depending on where you live but again the skip hire company will be able to advise you of this.

Hire Prices: Obviously this will vary from company to company but it can also vary depending on the type of waste, so when requesting a price be sure to inform the company of the type of waste you plan to dispose.

Maybe it’s not DIY that you are planning, maybe you feel that a clear out in long overdue, do you want your loft space or garage back? If so this is another great reason to hire a skip, it makes clearing out so much easier!
