TIPS AND TRICKS FROM LOCAL BUSINESSES
When to Hire a Skip
When it comes to skip hire, you may be wondering if its worth actually hiring a skip or if you should dispose of the waste yourself.
Of course in most cases, hiring a skip will set you back money. Just how much remains to be seen, but it will depend on a number of factors such as the duration you need your skip for, as well as the size, style and even if you need a permit to store it.
In our experience you'll know when the best time to hire a skip is because you will find that you are simply not able to dispose of the waste from your project yourself. If you're carrying out smaller projects around the house, you may get away with taking the waste to the local dump yourself, or even using a man and van service to assist you. This may be possible with smaller projects, but once your project reaches a certain size (usually when doing extension or conversion work), you will find its worth the price of hiring a skip to get the job done right.
When this happens, you'll have various options available to you, and hiring a skip is usually a fairly simple process.
You'll have a range of sizes to chose from, and the local skip hire company will usually assist you with making sure you have the correct skip for your project needs.
So if you're considering hiring a skip for your project, ask yourself if its possible to dispose of the waste yourself in accordance with the UK law? If it is, and you are able to take the waste to your local dumping area, then feel free to do this, however if your project is bigger than a small project, or if you don't fancy dealing with all the hassle and stress yourself, then go the skip hire route.
