Here in the UK, we know that our weather is volatile. With highs this July hitting 38 and lows of 10 with heavy downpours we certainly don’t know when the right time to book your skip hire could be. So what are the main weather worries when hiring a skip?
Rain, Rain, Rain
When the rain pours, it certainly pours. The rain might put you off filling your skip, or even ordering your skip. However, the good news is that you shouldn’t let it stop you!
So the contents might get a little damp, unless you go for an enclosed skip, but your skip won’t be full of water. Luckily, all our skips have drains in to stop them from holding onto excess water.
As long as you don’t mind getting a little wet when you load your skip, particularly if you are doing renovations in the house, it’s a great time to be hiring a skip. Treat the cooling rain as a nice way to cool off after hard work!
Too Hot To Handle
Of course, on the other side of the weather, we have the sun. While the sunny weather is usually the time when we see more people ordering skips in a bid to clear out the garden and renovate the house a national amber or red warning for heat can certainly put people off.
For the summer weather, we would usually recommend ensuring your own health, taking regular breaks, drinking plenty of water and hiding out in the shade wherever possible. However, with the heat warning just behind us, and more expected over the course of the summer, we urge you to take extra precautions. Where possible, stay inside, or at least out of the sun, drink plenty and reduce any strenuous activity where possible. Even if this means not filling your skip for a day or two.
