Home renovations can leave you with an abundance of waste that you can’t fit in your average household bin. Or that might be too big (or too much) to fit in the back of your car to head to the tip. This includes renovating your bathroom.
When it comes to renovating your bathroom, there are usually three larger fixtures that you will need to dispose of. The toilet, sink and bath.
These items are far too big for your standard bin, and for many cars. In many instances, if you have them fitted by the company you purchased your new ones from, they will take away your old ones too. However, in a bid to save a few pennies, many of us opt to either fit them ourselves or call someone cheaper in to fit them. This means that we have to dispose of the old ourselves too.
The good news is that hiring a skip from Staffordshire Skip Hire means that you can dispose of all three items in one place, right in front of your home, without the hassle of moving things around too much, or waiting for them to be collected.
It is unusual to find someone who is swapping out their bathroom fixtures and not revamping the rest of the room at the same time. Especially as removing the fixtures can cause damage to the surrounding decoration, plaster and flooring.
When hiring a skip to remove all of your fixtures, you can ensure that you are hiring the appropriate size to also remove any further waste that your total revamp may require.
We recommend that you consider the size of the overall bathroom as you may need space for flooring, old plaster and anything else that you might be removing.
Selecting Your Skip
It is easy to underestimate the size of the skip that you require, especially when you are loading it with bulky items. There are a few things that you might want to consider when choosing your size. Firstly, consider a skip with a drop door, this will mean that you do not need to lift heavy and bulky items over the rim of your skip. (You may want to load the bulky items first to fill the skip effectively).
Consider a slightly larger skip than you originally thought, just to be on the safe side as you tend to find you have more waste than you anticipated. For a full bathroom suite, we recommend nothing smaller than our 5-tonne drop door due to the length of your bath.
