What You Need to Know Before Hiring a Skip

If you're considering skip hire, there are a number of factors that need to be taken into account before signing up. It's not just the cost that should be considered but the terms offered by your chosen company. There are certain things you should look out for. There are certain tips and advice that can help you make the right decision.

To begin with it should be noted that the price that's being quoted will vary depending on what type of service you require. The price also varies depending on the size of the skip bin you require. The larger the skip bin the more expensive the service will be. The size of the skip bin will also be related to how much waste can be removed from the city area that you live in. Generally the larger the skip hire company the cheaper the service but this is subject to negotiation.

Another thing to take note of is the waste removal and waste disposal sizes that different companies offer. Some skips will only allow for a certain size of waste to be collected and thrown away whereas others will allow for any size of waste to be disposed of. This comes down to individual needs but will generally be a determining factor when choosing a company. Companies that don't allow for custom sizes may be seen as cheaper but the client isn't guaranteed a quality service and the customer is left to deal with the situation on their own.

A final consideration is the skip hire company's waste disposal methods. Will the skip be put out for collection every day, only once per week, or do you need to place a request for a pick up and remove the waste yourself? Each company has different methods for how they dispose of the waste but will usually only differ in the collection and disposal rates. Different companies will also charge differently for what is placed in the skip.

It's worth checking how the skip is stored once it's been rented. Does the skip hire company keep the skip on site, attached to a trailer, or will it be kept on the premises of the waste management company? This will have an impact on the duration of the skip's stay on site, both positively and negatively, as will any restrictions put on where the waste can be disposed of. Storing the skip in a hazardous waste container is one solution but it must be kept in a sealed and locked area, with the key provided by the waste management company.

There are many more things to consider than just the costs when thinking about skip hire. Make sure you know what you're getting yourself into before signing any contracts or making payments. Hire a professional skip hire company with a good track record and plenty of testimonials, and you'll be guaranteed a top quality service that's cost effective. Take your time when selecting the hire company that's right for you. You'll find that the right skip hire company can make all the difference between getting the job done and calling in experienced workers who know what they're doing. When you've finally made your decision, you can relax knowing you've made the best possible decision for your business.
