How does skip hire work?

How does skip hire work

Skip Hire is a quick and easy way to remove waste from your home clearance, garden clearance or DIY project. Whether you’re looking for Skip Hire Chorley or Skip Hire Bolton, the first thing that you’re going to need to do is to decide which skip you need and how long you’ll need to hire it for.

Any skips that are left on the road will require a permit which can easily be obtained from your local council. The permit for Skip Hire Chorley covers the duration of your hire period, allowing you to dispose of waste safely and legally.

  1. Hiring a skip

Here at Lostock Skip Hire, we make it easier for you to hire a skip for your domestic or commercial project. As a licensed skip hire company, we take care of waste disposal and ensure that you find a suitable skip to store the waste materials that your project generates.

With Skip Hire Bolton, we make sure that you receive the best value for your money, discussing your requirements in great detail. Usually, we arrange to deliver your skip on the same day that you order it, or at least the following day.

In order to prepare for the arrival of your skip, you need to make sure that there is sufficient access for the large loading vehicles to manoeuvre, without compromising health and safety standards.

  1. Arranging skip delivery

If you’re looking to get rid of waste, what better way to do so than to invest in Skip Hire Leyland? Skips can be delivered to a location of your choice, whether it be your home or your business.

We tend to arrange skip delivery for a time that is most convenient for you, so if you’re not in during the week, we can deliver it at the weekend, or in the evening if this is best.

  1. Filling a skip

Although it can be only too easy to fill a skip with unwanted items, there are certain do’s and don’ts that you need to be mindful of. In choosing Domestic Skip Hire Leyland, you are responsible for keeping prohibited items out of your skip because loading them with materials that are banned will only work out expensive.

Taking no notice of skip hire policies when filling your skip with waste is not recommended. Anyone who is caught disposing of materials illegally can expect to be on the receiving end of an expensive fine, therefore, it’s always better to ask our team of experts if you’re not sure whether materials can be stored within your skip.

  1. Arranging skip collection

If you don’t specify a collection date for your Skip Hire Wigan, when you order your skip, this can easily be arranged. At Lostock Skips, we make sure that waste is collected at the end of your project, allowing you to maintain high-quality standards.

To make Commercial Skip Hire Wigan easier for you, we collect your skip at the earliest opportunity, making sure that waste isn’t stored on your site for longer than it needs to be.

  1. Disposing of waste

The skips that we provide for Skip Hire Preston are designed to store all kinds of waste materials, no matter how big or bulky that they may be! We collect skips from your premises using our reliable fleets and transport them to the nearest recycling facility. Upon arrival, the waste is thoroughly sorted, making sure that recyclable waste is recycled and non-recyclable waste is carefully disposed of.

At Lostock Skips, we aim to recycle 90% of the materials that are found within the skips that we offer for Skip Hire Preston, making skip hire a sustainable method for waste disposal.
