Hiring the wrong skip for your construction project or waste removal can be a costly error. If you were to hire a skip that was too small for the job you want finishing, you’ll have no choice but to hire another one. Hiring a skip that’s too big, meanwhile, is simply a waste of time and money. Because the prices of skips are determined by their size, it’s essential you understand the exact requirements and specifications you’ll need upfront, in order to achieve your goal.
We take a look at some of the skip choices at your disposal to make your decision just that little bit easier.
Ideal for removing small amounts of household waste, a mini skip measures at a length of no more than three yards, meaning they’re more suited to smaller garden clean ups, or collecting waste for small scale renovations, like a kitchen or bathroom refit.
As a slightly larger alternative to mini skips, a midi skip is a small step up from the previous example purely in terms of size. Still perfect for handling waste from household renovations, garden waste and general rubbish, a midi skip is able to handle just that little bit of extra, measuring out at around five yards in length.
Similar in size and shape to a midi skip, builders skips are suitable for handling the waste provided by an entire kitchen or bathroom refit, as well as larger garden jobs. Slightly larger than a midi skip, builders skips can even manage some smaller pieces of household furniture.
As the name would suggest, a bulker skip is suitable for bulky furniture, like wardrobes or large sofas. However, unlike other skips, bulker’s cannot take on soil, rubble or other construction waste. This is important to remember. If you were to hire a bulker skip it would only be used for large pieces of furniture and nothing else, meaning you’d require a second skip specifically for household waste.
