What You Need to Do Before Hiring A Skip

If you’re looking into skip hire, it’s important to think about everything you need to do prior to booking one. Do you have the space for a large container? What are you going to put in it? Hiring from us is simple task, but there are some things you’ll want to consider

What Size Do I Need?

Skip hire may be confusing when it comes to choosing what size container is appropriate. Depending on how much waste that needs to be disposed of, you will need to consider what size you need. Whether you need construction waste removal, or you’re clearing out your garden, there are many dimensions to choose from. If you have a significant amount of waste, it’s recommended to opt for a larger container as they must be filled level.

Where Should I Put It?

Now you’ve thought about how big your skip needs to be, you need to consider whether there is space for it. Large containers require lots of room, so knowing the location for it is important to know before delivery. Not only does it need to fit, but there needs to be sufficient access for a lorry to deliver. Walls, fences and bushes need to be considered if you want the waste unit to be on your driveway, for instance.

Do I Need A Licence For My Skip Hire?

If you are intending on having the skip outside private property, you will need to acquire a permit. The cost of the permit is dependent on your local council and will need to be secured before delivery. If you are thinking of having the container outside of property, contact us and we can arrange a permit for you. There are some requirements to keep in mind if it is going to be placed on a public road:
