If you’re working on home renovations, then you’ll know that these projects can get seriously messy. You’ll generate all kinds of rubbish that needs to be dealt with. You could spend a lot of time making trips to the trip, or could consider hiring a skip to make your renovations go a little faster.
Hiring a skip is simple to do. Most skips hire companies will sort out permits for you to put a skip outside your home, or at least advise on how you can get one. If you have space for the skip on your own driveway, you might not need a permit at all to have one.
Most renovation waste can be taken to the local tip, but this can soon become an unpleasant task. If you’ve got a lot of stuff to throw out, it can get frustrating to have it sitting around until you can make a trip to the refuge depot. It’s also not much fun loading dirty, smelly items into your car. With a skip, you can put the rubbish straight in and someone else will handle it from there.
It’s Better For Your Car
If you’re piling your car high with rubbish, it’s all too easy to accidentally overload it. Your car’s suspension is designed to carry human beings and some shopping, not heavy loads of renovation project waste. If you overload you, you can cause damage to your suspension that will be expensive to be repaired.
It Saves You Time
With a skip outside the house, you can chuck rubbish into it at any time. When it’s full, you arrange to have it collected at a time that suits you. Local refuge depots often have quite restrictive opening hours. It can sometimes seem they’re open for a few hours on a Saturday, but only if the wind is coming from the west and you’re wearing blue shoes. When it is open, this means it gets very busy. You’ll have to plan your entire day around the likely multiple trips you’ll need to make and then can spend most of the day queuing to get in. It’s often an entire day wasted in queues that could have been spent on your project.
It’s Cheaper Than You Think
Most people assume that hiring a skip is a pricey thing to do. In fact, skip bin hire prices are often more reasonable than you might expect. Having a skip saves you money in other ways too. Without all those trips to the tip, you’re saving time, money on labor costs, fuel for your car, or the cost of hiring a van to transport your rubbish. Hiring a skip can be cost-effective and convenient.
Having a skip means you can keep the project area tidy as you go, which is much safer. Having waste items stacked everywhere gets in the way, and creates a risk of potentially nasty trips and falls. Keep it safe by keeping it tidy.
