If you're planning a project that will generate a lot of waste, you'll need to hire a skip to dispose of it. But with so many different sizes and types of skips available, it can be hard to know which one is right for your needs. In this guide, we'll take a look at the factors you need to consider when choosing a skip hire company in Lancashire, and help you decide what size skip you should hire.
If you're looking for skip hire in Lancashire, Skip Hire Lancashire is your local provider of waste disposal solutions. Based in the North West of England, we offer a range of skip sizes and services to suit all needs and budgets, whether you're a domestic customer or a commercial business.
Our skips range from small mini skips suitable for small DIY projects or garden clearances, to much larger roll-on roll-off skips for larger commercial projects, such as construction or refurbishment works. We also offer grab hire services for bulkier waste, and can provide man-in-a-van services for smaller loads.
Whatever your needs, we're here to help you find the right skip for your project, and our team of experts are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Before you hire a skip, there are several factors you need to consider. These include:
Different skips are suitable for different types of waste. For example, if you're disposing of soil or rubble, you may need a skip with a higher weight limit than if you're disposing of general household waste. Similarly, if you're disposing of hazardous waste, such as asbestos or chemicals, you'll need to choose a skip that is specifically designed for this purpose, and ensure that you follow all legal regulations around disposal.
The size of your project will also affect the size of skip you need. If you're a domestic customer and you're just doing a small home renovation project, a mini skip may be sufficient. However, if you're undertaking a large commercial project such as a construction site, you may need a much larger skip or even a roll-on roll-off container.
You'll also need to consider the location and access of your site when choosing a skip. If you have limited access, such as if you're working on a narrow road or in a built-up residential area, you may need to choose a smaller skip that can fit onto your site without causing an obstruction to other road users. Alternatively, if you have plenty of space and easy access, you may be able to hire a larger skip or container.
Finally, you'll need to consider your budget when choosing a skip. While smaller skips may be cheaper to hire, they may not be suitable for larger projects, and hiring multiple smaller skips can sometimes be more expensive than hiring one larger skip or container. Ultimately, you'll need to weigh up the cost against the benefits to ensure that you find the most cost-effective solution for your needs.
