Are you making that long awaited switch from your dingy old office to a flashy new one? maybe, are you staying put but having an office revamp?
If so, you may need some help when clearing out those old, bulky items. Here at SkipHire UK, we recognise that clearing out an office can be a daunting task, especially when the timings are tight and you’re without a workstation. So, we’ve created a complete guide to make sure you smash your strict moving deadline with a waste clearance solution that’s right for you.
Here are some of the questions and top tips to consider when handling an office clearance:
1) How much time do you have?
Step 1, and probably the most important question to ask yourself before clearing an office; how much time do you have to get it done? Planning an office clearance without knowing how long you have or how long it could take is risky, you could end up not allowing yourself enough time to get it done!
Knowing how much time you have will tell you how urgent your clearance is. It’s always best to clarify if the clearance is going to be an ongoing project, or if the waste needs removing straight away.
2) What waste are you getting rid of?
When clearing out an office, you’re going to stumble across various types of waste that need removing. Whether it’s old stationery, furniture or computers, it’s crucial that all waste is disposed of sustainably and efficiently.
Separate your waste so you can identify those bulkier items that need removing, it will help you identify what items will pose the biggest challenge. It will also help clarify what service you need, so it is a crucial point to consider.
3) How much waste do you have?
It’s great to know what waste needs clearing, but how much is there? Now you have clarified what you are getting rid of, you need a rough idea of how much there is to clear.
The quantity of waste has a direct impact on the cost of your clearance service, with most firms charging based on cubic yards of waste. It is important to know how much waste needs clearing from your office, to make sure your selected service meets your expectations. Failing to clarify how much waste you have could cause multiple issues, such as ordering the wrong sized skip. Order a skip too small and you could find your waste overflowing, order too large and you could be paying to move and dispose of fresh air! So, consider how much you waste you have, it could save you a few quid.

Why choose a skip?

With our skips having a fixed 2-week hire period (and options for longer term hire if required more), it’s the perfect solution when you need somewhere to store your waste during an extended office clearance. Like most things, our skips come in various shapes and sizes, so you can be sure we’ll have the right one for you. Whether you need an easy-to-load 4-yard skip, or a much larger 12-yard skip for bulky items, we’ve got you covered.
