Why Hire a Skip

Getting rid of waste and rubbish within your home or business is an important factor of everyday life. Proper waste disposal need not be an expensive or difficult task, as hiring a skip allows you to remove any waste or rubbish from your grounds with ease, as well as multiple other advantages.

If you’re wondering why skip hire is the best way for rubbish and waste removal, we’ve put together the top five reasons as to why you might need to hire a skip for your home or business.


If you’re planning on renovating your entire home, or just one room, you’ll soon find you want the process over and done with as soon as possible. Revamping often means there will be some destruction, and it’s a great idea to ensure you have any waste gathered in one place, such as a skip, as the renovating goes ahead. You’ll also find this a god’s send when the waste is taken away for you afterwards!


Perhaps you want to restore your garden rather than your home. For a major overhaul this can include cutting trees and hedges, weeding out the grass and planting new flowerbeds. This process can produce a lot of waste, so hiring a skip to throw it all into rather than tens of waste bags, can help to make the process quicker and easier for you, as well as keeping your outdoor space free of unwanted clutter.


Relocating to a new home can be a stressful time as we prepare to pack, clean and make the big move. Often, people will find they have a ton of things they don’t want or need, which is a great opportunity to donate to charity. If there are things that have passed their best, a skip could be ideal for you. A skip will mean you’re able to collect rubbish in one place and send it all away in one go- so no more pressure as you prepare to move!


Many people find that rubbish and waste can make its way to your garage over the years, as it quickly becomes the house dumping ground. Soon enough, it’s time for a big clear out as you find an array of rubbish that you no longer want. Skips come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s the perfect way to remove waste from your home, even if there’s not a lot of it. Keeping it in one space, and sending it all away in one go, can make your clear out a stress-free experience.

Hiring a smaller sized skip is best for a spring clean, though you may be surprised by how quickly it fills up! Disposing of the rubbish in one easy spot and sending it away together can make your spring clean quick, easy and hassle free.
