Tips For Skip Hire In Leeds And Across The Country

  • Find A Reliable Skip Hire Company – Before you order your skip, you should always do some research on the company that you are using. Check out their website in-depth – do they have a long-history? Where do they offer their services? Have they got any advice or a blog roll to prove their authority?

    It is always best to choose a national skip hire company, as they can be certain to offer a reliable service, no matter where you are.

  • Hire The Right Size Skip – Booking too small a skip can be extremely annoying and adds additional time to any project whilst a second one is delivered. At Skip Hire UK, we offer a diverse range of skip sizes to ensure that the service that you receive will be the ideal one for your requirements.
  • Make Sure That You Have Enough Space – Whilst it might seem obvious, make certain that you actually have the pace to fit a skip nearby your home or business. You also need to make certain that the vehicle which will deliver and pick up the skip will be able to access your property.

    Of course, if you don’t have enough space, then you can always apply for a permit from your local authority.

  • Think Before You Dump – Whilst skips can be used to dispose of many types of waste and unwanted materials, there are multiple items which cannot be placed into skips, or which you need to ask your skip hire company about. These items can include electrical waste (WEEE), oils, solvents, flammable or toxic materials and many more.

    Check on the internet as to what can be placed in your skip or, if you’re concerned, ask your skip hire professionals what you can place inside the skip and what the easiest way of removing waste is.

  • Don’t Overfill Your Skip – For health and safety reasons, along with transport reasons, you cannot overfill your skip. That is why it is absolutely essential to know how to fill your skip and to make sure that you choose the right size for your requirements.

    Again, if you have any concerns, you are better off contacting your waste removal company directly.
