How To Make The Most Out Of Your Skip Hire

Large open skip

Are you interested in skip hire? Whether you’re having construction work done or just having a mass clear-out, getting a large container is sometimes necessary. You’ll want to make the most out of your skip hire, so we’ve listed just some of the things you can do to save stress.

Hire The Right Size

When you get skip hire, it’s good to make sure you get the right-sized container. This might sound obvious, but getting a container that actually fits all the rubbish is quite hard to get right. If you accidentally go too small, you will have to get another container or organise transport. If you accidentally go too large, then you will be paying more than you need to for a bigger skip.

Ask our experienced team what size we would recommend for your project.

Fill The Container Correctly

To save space and use your skip hire efficiently, it’s good to know how to fill up your container. If you just throw stuff in randomly, then you could be losing valuable space. We recommend taking time to think about how to maximise the room you have. Flatter, larger objects should go at the bottom, and once everything is filled, you can put smaller items in the gaps.

If you’re interested in skip hire, you should be aware that a container needs to be filled level. It shouldn’t be overfilled, as this is dangerous for the people who transport it. If you don’t follow this rule, your container might be refused pick up and you could be charged for the mishap.

Efficient Skip Hire

Another way to make the most out of your skip hire is to plan how long you need it. For example, there’s no point in having it sit unused for a few days while a project finds its feet. It’s going to be more cost-effective and efficient if you calculate when exactly you need the rental period to be and ensure it’s not unnecessarily long.
