Finding the right sized skip for your project is essential, which is why we’ve created the perfect guide for getting the right size. To find out more, keep on reading!
Skip hire is generally required when construction businesses are carrying out a project. This could be at an independent construction site or on commercial buildings and even people’s homes. There are a variety of skip sizes, so that the waste of different sized projects can be handled properly. If you’re feeling unsure as to what size skip you need, keep reading!
Skips are usually measured in yards, coming in size variations of 2 years all the way through to 14 yards. We’ve outlined the following sizes and uses to help you choose the right skip for your project.
Mini skips refer to 2 yard or 4 yard skips. These are designed for small amounts of waste clearance, usually for mattresses and other household waste. They can be useful for small jobs that produce a lot of rubble and a 4 yard domestic skip hire would be ideal for a bathroom or a kitchen refurbishment.
6 yard skips are also pretty commonly used on residential construction projects and are usually the size of the skips you might spot in the street. They are good for accommodating the waste of slightly larger projects like large bathroom or kitchen refurbishments.
This is the second most popular skip and is great for large amounts of concrete soil or other types of construction materials. These could be used for office refurbishments or large domestic projects. Commonly referred to as the ‘builder’s skip’, the 8 yard skip for hire is an industry favourite.
These maxi skips are designed to hold large amounts of waste including plastic, packaging…etc. Entire house or office clearances may require a 12 yard skip. Due to the size of the skip, it can be difficult to fill it with heavy items like bricks and concrete as a skip lorry needs to be able to lift it and take it away.
