Looking for 3 Ways to Reduce Skip Costs? If you’re embarking on a renovation project or construction work and dreading the back-and-forth trips to the tip, there’s a cost-effective solution: skip hire. Contrary to popular belief, skip hire doesn’t have to break the bank if you follow these steps:
- Choose the appropriate size: Don’t overestimate the amount of waste you’ll generate. Renting a skip that’s too large can be unnecessarily expensive. Skips come in various sizes, ranging from a mini two-yard to a roll-on/roll-off. Keep in mind that if you run out of space, you might need to hire an additional skip, which can end up costing more than opting for a larger skip from the start. A two-yard skip can accommodate around 20 bin bags, while the largest skip holds approximately 160-360 bin bags. Consider checking the dimensions to get a sense of the skip’s overall size.
- Road permits: If your property lacks a driveway or a suitable area to place the skip, you’ll need to obtain a road permit for the duration of its use. To keep costs down, try to find an accessible location on your property instead of automatically opting for a permit you might not require.
- Time restrictions: Before hiring a skip, have a clear idea of how long you’ll need it. Extending the hire period may result in extra charges. Plan ahead and allocate sufficient time to dispose of the waste within the agreed time limit.
