When hiring a skip the hire tariffs are based on you several criteria:
- Skip size
- Waste type
- Skip hire permits
If you skip is to be placed on a public highway you will be required to obtain a permit from your local authority. Unfortunately there are no national set rates or standards for application process speeds for skip hire permits.
Some local authorities insist that the customer organises their own skip hire permit but where possible some companies may do this for you. It pays to ask the company who you are hiring from first as you cant expect them to do this as part of the hiring.
Price is generally not dependent on the number of days you have your skip for. Some companies may have a set number of days that is included in the hire charges, so it again pays to check as you don’t want your skip taken away before you have had a chance to fill it up.
Other companies may have a cheaper rate if you only need the skip for a few hours. With any hiring of products it pays to ring around and see who offers the best price and the best service that is suited to your needs.
If you don’t have the room on your property for a skip to remove all your rubbish then why not consider using a clearance company who will have a vehicle that can turn up and take away all your unwanted items. This way the job is done for you and you don’t have to do any heavy lifting or worry about skip permits.
