Tips For Hiring A Skip

5 Tips for Hiring Skips

Hiring a skip is just one stage in the process of getting ready for a DIY project or a household cleanout. If you’re planning to rent a skip for rubbish collection or recycling, here are a few pointers to keep in mind.

What Size Skips Can I Hire In Cardiff

Skips come in a variety of sizes, depending on the skip hire company you use; at Cardiff and Caerphilly Skip Hire, we offer a wide choice of sizes to select from. Different sizes are appropriate for different projects, so consider this before making a reservation. A Mini 2 yard skip, for example, can carry about 25-35 black garbage bags and is modest enough for a standard house or garden clean-up. An 8-yard skip, on the other hand, can carry about 100-120 black rubbish bags and is better suited to large DIY projects such as house additions. You’ll save a lot of time and, more significantly, money if you know which skip size you need.

If you’re not sure what size skip you need, take a look at our handy skip size guide.

How Much Space Do I Need For My Skip

It may be difficult to get the skip delivered to your door if you live on a narrow or frequently crowded road. If you notify the skip hire firm of any access problems, they will be able to make the appropriate preparations or provide an alternate solution.

Please be aware that if you don’t have anywhere on your property to put the skip, such as a driveway or a wide garden area, and it must be placed on the road, you will be required to pay for a Council-issued permit.

Same Day Skip Hire Cardiff

It’s only a few days until your home improvement project gets underway. You’ve hired the builders, you know exactly what interior style you want to accomplish, and you’ve even chosen some paint samples; all that’s left is to hire a skip to dispose of any trash. The problem with deferring such a crucial task until days before the project starts is that all available skips may be booked! This will either cause a delay in your project or force you to pay extra for a cowboy business.

Always hire your skip far ahead of the start date of your project so that the required permits can be obtained and the skip can be delivered on time.

What Are Skip Hire Height Regulations

Believe it or not, while filling a skip, there are severe regulations in place that specify a precise height restriction. The most important thing to remember is not to overfill your skip; if you do, the skip business may refuse to return it because it creates a risk to themselves and the general public.  This is another reason why taking time to decide on the right skip size is important.

What Can I Put In A Skip

There are several items that are not permitted to be thrown into a skip. Food and other perishables are not recommended, as they may bring unwelcome visitors to the skip, which no one wants to deal with! Asbestos, tyres, refrigerators, freezers, and electricals, as well as anything hazardous like solvents, oils, or toxic materials, are absolutely prohibited. General home rubbish and construction materials are accepted, and depending on the business you choose to book with, they may even be recycled.
