What to Look for When Hiring a Skip Company

Hiring a skip company is the easiest way to get rid of all your rubbish without having to do any heavy lifting. Hiring a skip is painless and easy-you do all the heavy lifting by providing them with your address and they will be there to take it away when you’re done!

Skip companies are experts in their industry, so you can trust that they will bring everything needed for an efficient process. They have dozens of skips available in sizes ranging from 4 yards up to 40 yards. You’ll find that most people only need a small skip, but if you are taking on a major project or getting ready for a major cleanout, then renting a larger dumpster makes more sense. Skip companies offer both short-term rentals as well as long-term rentals for a higher rate. You’ll find that hiring a skip is the quickest and easiest way to get rid of all your rubbish, both big and small!

Recommended skip sizes

If you are looking to hire a skip for a smaller job, then anything from 1 yard to 4 yards will probably be enough to suit your needs. For larger jobs, 8 yards is the recommended size. Make sure the company you are hiring from has a good reputation so that you can trust them to do their job efficiently and effectively. Before deciding on a location, make sure that you check any permit requirements for this kind of thing in your area. Make sure the place is close enough to where you will be doing your clean-up, but also accessible to the skip company that will be picking up the dumpster. Pay attention to any extra fees, such as parking fines or traffic tickets that you may incur due to having a large dumpster parked in your driveway for too long. Make sure to check with the company on what types of materials are accepted so that there aren’t any unpleasant surprises.

Materials accepted

Most skip companies accept most types of materials, but make sure you check with the company if you have any doubts. Generally, if it’s not an extremely hazardous material, they will be able to take it. Make sure you know where the closest recycling center is to find out what materials are accepted there before hiring a skip company. By investing in your own trolley or handcart, you can save money on additional fees that the skip company might charge for each load. Excavation is another option that the skip company might offer, making it easier for you to do your own landscaping or other work that needs to be done.

Different types of skips available

There are different types of skips available for hire. There are different sizes-the larger the skip, the more rubbish it will take. The other important consideration is whether to order a door-todoor or drop-off service. Door-to-door means you won’t have to give the driver directions and he can just come straight to your address. Drop-off means you’ll need to tell him where exactly to leave the skip, but it doesn’t need to be near your property’s entrance/exit (which may be difficult if you live on a narrow residential street).

To get the most out of your cash, look for a company that offers either door-to-door service or free drop-off; if you only need the skip for one day (many companies will offer better rates per day) then it can save you more money. Be sure to ask about delivery times too—if they don’t deliver it on time, you’re left with a skip you don’t need.

When choosing your skip company, make sure to ask whether they are registered waste carriers too. Accidents happen and things break down; there’s nothing worse than having the vehicle responsible for hauling away all of your rubbish breaking down or leaving without finishing their job! Most gunk skips should be able to take care of a household clean out, but if your needs are more complex you may want to hire a commercial skip company. They will have larger skips and the trucks necessary for transporting heavy machinery.

In addition to this, it is also worth mentioning that when hiring a skip from a formal firm they will almost always offer an inclusive price. This means that when they turn up to drop it off/pick it up there are no hidden costs-you do not have to worry about the driver asking for cash on the spot, or them providing you with a quote in advance. Skip hire can be expensive, so anything that makes it easier is worth considering.


Since you can rent a skip for your project, there are many things to consider when choosing the right one. The size of the skip and what materials it will take is important in making sure that you do not need to worry about running out of space or having an accident with hazardous materials. It’s also worth considering if you want door-to-door service or free drop-off; this way you know how much time they’ll spend at your property and whether they charge extra fees per day (in which case, renting for more days would be beneficial).  It is also good practice to make sure your company has all necessary permits before hiring them because skipping regulations vary from place to place.  If possible, ask about delivery times so that
