When it comes to hiring a skip, we know that there are a number of choices and it is easy to get lost among the choices. So when it comes to whether you require an enclosed skip, here are the common considerations that our customers make.
When it comes to the winter, we have an increase in requests for enclosed skips. This is primarily because many believe that this will keep their waste drier, so as not to fill an already heavy skip with water.
Unfortunately, our enclosed skips will still allow an amount of water in, which may make this consideration null and void. However, it is important to note that our skips have holes in or near the base where any water collected will be able to escape so as not to fill the skip.
If you are concerned about your waste collecting water or getting wet (it is waste after all) we recommend that you pick yourselves up a cheap tarpaulin and tie that down.
While many of us have little privacy concerns when it comes to our waste, in some cases there will be a privacy concern. Whether this is to protect what is happening as part of the project or clearout, or for businesses to protect their privacy.
For this, enclosed skips are ideal. They can be secured and locked to ensure that privacy is maintained.
We often find that enclosed skips are requested by businesses when they are refurbishing their offices. While this is predominantly the aforementioned privacy. However, it can also be a security factor.
Skips are often outside of a business’s premises, where they may not be behind a lockable gate. This means that they are open to tampering, including the potential for arson. While many businesses need not be concerned about this, unfortunately, there are those where this is a real concern. Investing in an enclosed skip can reduce this concern.
Our enclosed skips are often hired for long-term purposes, whether this is for a business, a long-term project or even by local authorities. If you are interested in a long-term skip placement, please contact the team today who will be more than happy to assist you.
