There are many considerations when you need to hire a skip. Hiring a skip can be a bit daunting if you have never done it before. The selection you make will have effect on how much it will cost you along with level on convenience it will provide you. If you check yellow pages, you will find lot of companies offering for skip hire. In such case one can get confused which companies to opt for. Unless you experience the companies’ service, you cannot be sure how good and reliable they are!


Few skip hiring companies are not ready to tell their prices if you inquire them. They will not give you important details like the time for drop and pick up of skips, and will not have online payment options. To overcome these hurdles you can keep few points in mind before you hire a skip.

1.Choose the perfect skip size:
The skip size will depend on how much rubbish you need to dispose away. If the waste for disposal is more you can hire a larger skip. Also, remember that overloading the skip bins is illegal. If the bin is overloaded, the driver is not allowed to carry such unsafe loads according to the law. So skip size should be perfect according to the amount of waste. Skips come in various sizes, right from 2 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards. Based on their sizes and use they are classified as mini skips, midi skips and builders skip.

2.Choose the best skip Hire Company:
It is not easy to find a good skip hire company unless you know someone personally from the company.You can check for companies which operate their own licensed skip transfer stations. Its good to opt for companies who are members of Institute of Waste Management which a professional body that promotes education and raising standards in waste management. The non-reliable companies are just cowboys that often fly tip your waste and add to your council tax bill. The skip bin hire in Perth based in Australia can be opted for waste disposal.

3.Getting the best price.
Hiring skip is not a cheap thing! But your waste needs to be disposed of so it’s really essential to hire a skip. A mini skip, which is ideal for disposing garden and household waste, can cost you around £65. Midi skips which can be used for larger waste and commercial waste can cost you £90.Builder skip which is useful for construction waste can cost up to £150. The price covers delivery, collection, and disposal. No labour is included although some operators may offer this for extra. Another question which comes in mind is whether you can pay cash or pay through credit cards.Lot of companies are not willing to pay taxes and hence take direct cash payments. However, there are few companies like Tom white waste which accept payments through credit cards.

4.Finding the right place to put skip
It is better if you place the skip on your property itself. However, if that’s not possible you can put it on street, but you need to get a permit from the council first and that costs a few pounds. The largest skip any council will allow on a road is 8 yards. Once you are sure how much the permit will cost, you can search for skip firms in that area who will sort out the permits for you by taking additional fee. If you will follow all these points, you will surely get the perfect skip for your rubbish disposal.
