If you are looking to hire a skip, planning ahead will ensure you maximise your hire period. There are many reasons why you could want to book a bin, and their use is by no means limited to building sites or businesses. Hiring a skip requires financial outlay so some forward planning will guarantee you will get the most value for your money. See below for our top tips for getting the most out of your bin hire:
What do you plan to Use the Skip Bin for?
Whether you’re a homeowner planning a renovation project or general cleanup, or you’re a business with lots of rubble to get rid of, skip bin hire is one of the most effective methods available to move large amounts of waste. To get the best value out of your booking make sure you chat to the hire company when making your booking so they can help you figure out the skip size you require, it also helps to find out if the skip provider is able to process the materials to be put in the skip.
Find a Reputable Local Company
Hiring your skip from a local hire company has many advantages, one being the closer the provider is to you, the lower the cost of your booking. Reputable companies are those that use environmentally friendly methods of waste disposal and are more dependable for timely delivery and collection of the skip.
Choosing the Right Skip
There is no reason to hire a bin that is too large, either as a cost conscious decision, as well as other issues such as the available space on your property. Skip bins range in size from 3 X 3m, which holds approximately four trailer loads of rubbish up to 6 X 3m bins which will hold up to nine trailer loads.
Be prepared to get Your Hands Dirty!
It goes without saying that if you are going to be hands-on with loading the bin that it will be messy work but by really getting stuck in you can squeeze the value out of your skip. Arranging items carefully rather than just throwing them in will minimise empty space.
While most skip hire companies recycle most materials, sorting through your waste is also helpful as you can weed out any items that are prohibited or that you can recycle through the usual rubbish collection services.
