Choosing Between Skip Hire and the Tip

There are a number of ways to dispose of large amounts of waste whether it is from a house, construction or garden project.

One of the most common is taking it down your local tip, but have you considered hiring a skip from Staffordshire Skip Hire?

Skip hire offers a number of benefits including being a convenient waste solution for you.

Reasons to Choose Skip Hire

Here we have put together four reasons you should consider using a skip instead of the tip –

1. Convenience – Hiring a skip is particularly convenient if you are looking to get rid of a large amount of waste. Rather than loading up your car for repeated trips to the tip, you can simply throw it into a skip at the front of your property.

While tips are considered a cheaper option you need to take into consideration the cost of fuel for repeated trips to the tip plus the amount of time you will spend separating the waste into the correct sections. This process will be repeated a number of times and can end up costing you time and money.

2. Waste Quantity – The amount of waste you want to move is one of the most important factors to consider. For smaller projects, it is more economical to use the tip if it only requires one trip. However, if you have accumulated significant waste, then a skip is a smarter choice. For projects such as a refurbishment or significant construction work, it is much easier to hire a skip.

3. Different Types of Waste – When choosing between the tip or skip you should always consider what type of waste you are moving. Dirty, dusty and bad-smelling waste will seep into the upholstery of your car and lead to permanent damage. If you have spent the whole day with endless trips to the tip you want to recuperate and not cleaning your car.

You also run the risk of causing visible damage to your car, including holes and tears in the interior and scratches in the paintwork. Remember you do not need to seperate waste when using a skip.

4. Where to Position Your Skip – If you choose skip hire from Staffordshire Skip Hire you are able to have a waste solution available on your front lawn or driveway. If you do not have space on your lawn or driveway you will need to apply for a permit to station it on your street outside your home. We offer a diverse range of skips to ensure we have the model to suit your waste removal needs.
