What Size Skip Do I Need?

Posted on by A & A Skip Hire

When it comes to home renovations, the last thing you need is to hire the wrong size skip and have an ostentatious and unnecessarily large skip taking up room when all you needed was to get rid of a few garden weeds. With this easy guide, you will know exactly what size skip to order to get you household jobs done.

Getting Rid of Garden Waste

When spring has sprung and the last of the winter snow has melted, many brits don their gardening gloves and head outside to give much-needed TLC to the hibernating plants. This can be quite a large undertaking, especially if you have allowed weeds to get out of control and spread like wildfire. In this instance, you will only need a 2 yard cubic skip, even for a particularly large garden.

When renovating a room of your home, whether that is your kitchen or your bathroom, the last thing you want is to see residual dust from your 'get-rid-of' pile gathering on your new furniture or facilities. Rent a 4-6 cubic yard skip for tasks like this. That way you can get rid of everything in one easy sweep, and have a good clean before bringing in the latest designs. After all, the saying out with the old, in with the new is a classic for a reason.

A Complete Clear Out

For those larger jobs, including a complete house clearance, an 8-10 cubic yard skip is your optimum choice. These could also be extremely useful when it comes to excavating, so if you are planning to build a conservatory or have torn one down; this is your best option. It is also perfect when moving house, as you won't have to worry about taking multiple trips to the tip and can enjoy taking the time to decide what to take with you to your new home instead.
