There Are 3 Things You Need To Know Before Understanding How Much A Skip Will Cost You.

what skip size

What size skip do you need?

This is difficult to understand if you’ve never hired a skip before. If you hire a skip that is too small, you could end up having to hire a second skip to accommodate the waste that you need to get rid of. If you hire a large skip, you could end up slightly.

overpaying for your waste collection needs. The best way to understand this is to think about the type of waste that you have, if it’s a chest of drawers for instance, can it be broken down into flat pack to allow more room into the skip?

What type of waste are you getting rid of? If it’s garden waste, can it be cut up into small pieces so you can get more in the skip and ultimately get more for your money? Or are they large bulky items that cannot be broken down, therefore you may need a larger skip. It’s better to be safe and get a larger skip than it is to get a smaller skip and have to order a second one to accommodate your waste collection needs.

what waste type

What waste type do you want to get rid of?

Are you doing a building job? Are you just clearing out your house of household rubbish? Are you doing garden work? These types of things do depend on the price however, we can accommodate for any type of waste. Just let us know what type of waste you want to get rid of and we can give you a quote on that.

skip permit

Will the skip fit on your driveway or will you need a council permit?

If you can keep it on your own property you can avoid the council charges for permits. If you can put it on your front garden, that’s great. However, we need to know how we can get the skip onto that front garden,

if there’s a small wall we need to get over, if there’s a wide footway, the lorry that we use to deliver the skips cannot drive onto the footway. Driveways are the best option for this. However, consider if you’re putting heavy goods into a large skip on your driveway and your driveway is block paving or tarmac there could possibly be some damage to your driveway because of the weight.

If you want it on the road, that’s not a problem, we can deal with the council and arrange council permits for you. The council do charge additional cost for this and we can quote you this on a phone call to us. Please bear in mind that, even if it’s not on the road and it’s on the pavement it’s still council property. It has to be your own private property so we can deliver the skip without a permit. If you want it on the footpath or a grass verge and it’s not owned by you, we still have to get a council permit for you.
