We have all experienced the hassle and time it takes to dispose of waste yourself when it comes to taking it to your local recycling centre. You have to make endless journeys in the car, spend hours queuing and even cause damage to the interior of your car at the same time. It’s fair to say that the process of disposing of waste yourself is nothing more than a nuisance. 

Fortunately, this is where skip hire is extremely useful and can help you save time and effort. Sure, a skip is going to cost money but you are paying for the ease and convenience that comes with being able to dispose of waste in one go but you can save money when hiring a skip and we are going to tell you how.

Consider Skip Size

If you want to save money, then choosing the right size skip for your job is crucial. It can be too tempting to play it safe and order a skip that is too small and in contrast, it can also be tempting to order a skip that is too small thinking that you can save even more. If you hire a skip that is too big, you’ll be paying for space that you don’t need. Hire a skip that is too small and you will find that you need to hire another, costing even more money.

We have a range of skips available and that gives you the scope to find a skip that offers everything you are looking for and more.

Don’t Overfill It

You might think that we can take away all the waste that you have, even if your skip is overflowing. Skips are designed and delivered in the sizes that we offer because that is the volume of waste that they can hold, it is why they are given individual sizes. It’s the same reason why you wouldn’t attempt to fit more than two people in a two-seater car because it isn’t designed for more passengers than that!

Overfilling a skip is a safety hazard for you and our staff but you could find that you have to spend more money. If you overfill your skip, there is every chance that you might have to pay a fine or you might have to remove waste and order another skip. Either way, fill your skip to the recommended volume and you can save money.

Store it On Private Property

If you want to put your skip on a public road, you will need to pay for a permit. You might think that this is the best option because you need to park your car on your drive but can you park your car on the road and have your skip stored on your drive? If this is possible, you can save money on skip hire.

Skip hire doesn’t have to cost as much as you think it might need to. With some clever thinking and planning, you can save when it comes to hiring your next skip.
