Basic skip hire guide

Prior to hiring a skip there are important things to consider to help determine the service you require. Firstly is where you want to place your skip when it’s delivered. Generally the unit will need to be positioned somewhere on site, whether it be a driveway, garden or private land. When this isn’t the case, you can sometimes place it on public land or pavements but you will require a permit; and need to pay the appropriate fees. L&C can organise everything for you, delivering the level of service you would expect from the best team for skip hire Middlesbrough has.

Another thing to consider is what you are putting in your skip. It’s always wise to ask your provider what you can and can’t place in the module. Otherwise, if rubbish that isn’t allowed is thrown in you may be charged higher fees or have to remove it again.

The next consideration is what size skip you need. To be cost effective it’s best to get rid of much waste as you can in one go. This is why it’s vital to calculate how much waste you are disposing of; an underestimation could lead you to needing more than one skip. Try and break down larger items as much as possible to save space too.

Lastly, you need to calculate how long you require the skip for. Depending on your project, or if there’s a large volume of waste, can vary the hire time. If you have a short space of time to fill the skip, you may need to seek extra help.
