Your Complete Guide To Hiring A Skip


Picking the right skip for your needs can be daunting. At Skip Hire UK, we’re proud to offer skip hire in Peterborough and many other UK locations, in an open and honest way. This is why we have such a great reputation for customer service! But just so you know all the ins-and-outs, here’s a handy guide on all you need to know about hiring a skip for Skip Hire UK.

How To Hire A Skip From Skip Hire UK

Firstly, you’re probably asking yourself “when will I need a skip?” The answer is when you have lots of large, bulky waste items that you need to quickly and conveniently get rid of. Often, these are items that councils won’t take away as part of normal rubbish collection services. Rubbish generated from home renovations, big gardening projects, building and decorating can easily be carted off in one of our skips. There are a few items that we won’t collect as part of a standard hire , so please call us to learn more information.

Next, consider what size skip you will need. As part of our service supplying cheap skip hire in Peterborough, as well as many other major UK cities, we offer a comprehensive range of skips. Be realistic when hiring your skip though, as hiring two smaller ones can be more expensive than hiring one big one! Our skip sizes are:

  • Mini – Perfect for low volume waste. These are small and convenient. Typically used for small spring cleans.
  • Midi – These are bigger than mini skips, but still small. Midi skips are often used for bathroom rip outs or gardening projects.
  • Builders – Builders are the most popular skip we hire out at Skip Hire UK. Suitable for domestic or business use, they are perfect for medium to large sized renovations like kitchens, conservatories or extensions.
  • Large – Large skips can take a lot of big light waste items – excluding rubble, rocks and hardcore – so are perfect for major home refurbishments or refits.

Next, decide when you will need your skip delivered. At Skip Hire UK, we always endeavour to deliver and collect your skip at a time that’s convenient to you but there are certain factors that may affect delivery time – such as weather or traffic conditions, breakdowns and so on. As such, we will give you an indication of when we will be delivering your container, but unfortunately cannot offer any guarantees.

Please also make sure that you can have a skip on your property. If you need to put in the road, then you will need a skip hire permit from the local authority. We are happy to arrange of these for you, so contact us for more details.
