Skip hire and getting the right size skip

In order to get it right, you need to ask yourself a few questions and wherever possible measure approximately how much rubbish and what type of rubbish you need to get rid of. If you underestimate the amount, you might end up with a skip that's too small and the chances are you'll have to hire a second skip to finish the job, which could mean wasting extra cash unnecessarily.

A good tip when getting rid of unwanted furniture, trees or any other bulky wooden items is to break it up first. This way you may be able to hire a smaller skip for the job which will ultimately save you money. Another consideration that has to be taken into account is where the hired skip is going to be placed. If it is to be placed in a restricted environment, you may wish to order several smaller skips so you can ensure easy access to the skip for filling. Wherever you place the skips, regardless of the size, you should check with your supplier if you need a council permit. Any skip stored on a public road or pavement will require this permit and it can take a couple of days to get hold of.

If you only need to get rid of smaller items, then mini-skips are ideal. Clearing out a small office or getting rid of things from a garden shed or around a home is made that much easier by hiring a mini skip, as it means you won't have to make several trips to the local recycling facility or tip in order to get the job done. Mini skips vary in size but generally range from 2 to 4 cubic yards in volume and it is surprising just how much rubbish can be put in them if well organised to begin with. These are referred to as '2 yard skips' or '4 yard skips'.

Then there are slightly bigger skips called midi-skips which are about double the size of the mini ones being between 4 cubic yards and 6 cubic yards in volume. They are the ideal size for getting rid of larger household items as well as garden waste and rubbish generated during a household re-vamp. If you have that much more waste to dispose of then you should consider hiring a builders' skip, as this can contain 8 cubic yards of waste. It is ideal for a larger job involving a lot of building work or potentially for waste generated by a commercial business, as you'll be able to dispose of quite a substantial amount of rubbish without any problem whatsoever. An 8 yard skip is the largest you can use to dispose of heavy soil, rubble and bricks otherwise it's too heavy to be loaded on the skip truck.

For really major industrial jobs, a commercial skip is the best option. These are very large indeed and range from 12 - 40 cubic yards in volume. 'Ro Ro' skips as they are called derive that name because they 'roll on' and 'roll off' a skip lorry using built-in metal rollers at one end of the skip. They are used for big jobs and are a great choice for builders and other professionals who are unsure of the total amount of waste they will need to get rid of during a project they've undertaken to do. If hiring a large skip like this, you should always ensure there is enough room for the skip lorry to access your site and store the skip.

At the end of the day, the calculation you make before you hire a skip is very important, but then so is how you actually fill the skip you have hired. It's also vitally important you consider the type of waste you are placing in the skip because very heavy loads are not suitable for some larger skips and bulky, light wastes are too much for smaller containers. Skips can come with a 'drop-front' for easy loading with barrows or to walk in and they can also be covered or lockable to prevent theft or to keep hazardous materials contained safely. The skip size you order will also have to fit in to the location you intend it to be placed, and if you need a council permit then you have to arrange this well in advance of the skip being delivered to you. Many skip hire companies do offer clients this service and are more than happy to arrange for a permit on their behalf.
