A 14 yard skip is perfect for any type of house clearance where you will be getting rid of big items. With a height of 1.8 metres (5’9”) a length of 3.6 metres (11’8”) and a width of 1.8 metres (5’9”) they are ideal to hold bulky furniture or any large items of waste that you no longer require.
They are great for most home renovations where a lot of waste is being removed, however it may pay to check with the company to see if they are suitable for heavy waste items like hard core or bricks.
On average a 12 yard skip holds 120-140 black bags of waste. That is a good sized skip to remove most if not all rubbish from your property.
Skips have many advantages but they also have a few disadvantages too, so you need to consider all your options before you make a decision. Firstly, is your property of a big enough size that is can hold a skip, as the lorry that delivers your skip requires a minimum of 10ft (3.3metres) width to be able to gain access, and this applies regardless of the size skip you have ordered.
Of course the sizes may vary that we have given but they will give you an idea of what you are looking at.
The second thing to consider with a skip hire, no matter what its size is if you property is not big enough and you have permitted parking around your property, your skip will need to have a permit, with these being obtained through most councils. A permit is another cost to take in to consideration.
If you just want someone to come along and remove everything for you at the end or even during a job then contacting a clearance company is the way to go.
