Questions to Ask Your Skip Hire Company Before Arrival

A skip is a fantastic way to speed up the process of clearing a site ready for construction and is also very convenient. However, if you are inexperienced in hiring a skip, or haven’t hired one for the property you are now at, then there may be some crucial points that you haven’t considered. That’s why, before going ahead and booking a skip, you should ask the company some important questions.

1. How Much Room Will you Require Outside My House?

Where and how a skip is placed will depend largely on the space available outside your house, and what the rules and regulations are. Ideally, the space will need to be at least 10 feet long, and it may be best to find out yourself whether you need a permit to park a skip there.

2. How Long Can I Have the Skip For?

Generally speaking, skip hire works on a fixed basis, usually up to around two weeks. If you require more or less time, then it may be best to set a timeline there and then which you will be accountable to, and which will also ensure the skip is picked up on time.

3. What Sizes Do You Offer?

The size of skips can range greatly, and it’s important you only pay for what you need. You should try and get a rough estimate of how much space you’ll require, and then find a size being offered which best suits your needs and budget.

4. Are You an Authorised Waste Disposal Company?

If you hand your waste to a company that is unlicensed in properly disposing of it, you are liable for fines that could reach £5,000. It could be worth checking for reviews online as well to make sure they are properly licensed.
