Do you want to find out about cheap skip hire? I recently had the need for it and went through quite a rigorous process of selecting a company and I hope to show you how I did it. |
Don't start by finding a company to hire from. Work out whether you actually need the skip in the first place. Understand the task that you need it for and think about if there are any alternatives that you could use instead.
Now you have thought about it and you definitely need a skip. Next you need to get your requirements absolutely clear. You will need to think about a number of things. Firstly you need to think about the size of the skip. Then think about the duration that you want the skip for and when you would like the drop off and the collection.
What is the best way of finding cheap skip hire? There are lots of ways to do it. The traditional way is to look in the company telephone directory. There you should find a whole section dedicated to skips for hire. Failing that you could look for one in you local free newspaper.
An increasingly popular way of searching for cheap skip hire is using the internet. Doing a search will reveal all the companies in your local area. You will also find national companies who will bring the skip right to your front door even if you don't live anywhere near them.
The best way (and the best way to find anything) is through a friend's recommendation. Ask them where you can find skips for hire. Chances are they won't know but you have nothing to lose and you could find a gem.
To wrap up I want to give you a further few tips about getting cheap skip hire. Firstly think about sharing the skip with a neighbour and then sharing the costs. Finally get as many quotes as you can and then negotiate to get a better skip deal.
