When Should You Hire A Skip?

Hiring a skip can be a bit daunting when you’ve never had to hire one before, but we’re here to help simplify the whole process. Whatever change you’re about to go through that involves getting rid of a lot of waste, you may require a skip to make the whole process easier. But you may be wondering if it’s worth hiring a skip for your job? We’ve created an article to help you decide what size skip would be perfect for your amount of wastage.


If you’ve started or are about to begin decorating either your kitchen or bathroom, a lot of waste will be produced from removing old tiles and bathtubs, or scraping off old sealing. Getting new cupboards in your kitchen will leave you with old interiors which won’t be taken with the general rubbish. Most of this kind of waste can be recycled by independent skip hire companies, so you can have the peace of mind knowing your waste is dealt with responsibly. You’d be surprised at how much waste could be created from the renovation of one room!

If you’re looking to renovate a bathroom, we recommend a mini skip or a midi skip, depending on the size of your project. We have a variety of sizes available, this includes:

  • 3 yard mini skip
  • 4 yard mini skip
  • 6 yard midi skip

We don’t recommend anything bigger than a midi skip for domestic projects, but if you’ve got a particularly ambitious project planned, then please discuss this with one of our team members and they can advise you on the size of skip suitable for your needs.

Clearing out

A general clean out of your home may be in order after years of collecting items and never using them. By using our skip services, you’ll be sure that any usable items will be recycled so somebody else can get the full benefit before it runs its course. Clearing out your garage or attic can create more waste than ever expected as you begin to sift through years of unused items. Even items you originally kept for sentimental value may need removing after decades of sitting in a damp environment.

Garden rubbish can also create masses of waste, as during the summer months you may need to cut down overgrown trees and plants so you are able to enjoy your garden thoroughly during the nice weather. Landscaping projects and outdoor renovations produce masses of waste, including bricks, rubble, soil, green waste that won’t all fit in your own garden waste bin.

Moving house

Moving house is a stressful time for everyone, as often there are tight deadlines and a lot of admin to sort, so the last thing on your mind will be what you’re going to do with everything you decide not to take. One of the most common things people realise when moving house is how much stuff they’ve accumulated over the years and don’t want to take to their new house, in fear of cluttering up a brand new home.

Clearing out your home quickly is often essential to those who need to pack up and hiring a skip allows you to get rid of all your waste without having to sort it all into categories, as the skip service will do it for you. Hiring a skip will prevent excessive stress during an already stressful process.
