Lostock Skips top tips for skip hire

Lostock Skip Hire have unrivalled experience when it comes to skip hire Chorley. Offering a suitable solution for domestic and commercial customers, we can help you to get rid of your waste in a way that’s convenient – saving you the time and effort.

If you’re to get more out of your skip hire Chorley, there are several things to take into consideration, including the following:

  • Plan your project

Deciding to hire a skip will make it easier for you to dispose of waste.

It’s better to plan ahead, making sure that you obtain the permits for your skip hire Chorley prior to starting your project. Order the right sized skip for the volume of waste you expect to be generated and have the waste ready to dispose of.

As well as this, try to recycle as much as you can and donate items that are still usable – this will instantly free up space inside your skip.

  • Book the right skip

Ordering the wrong skip for your skip hire Bolton will leave you paying more than you need to. If you order a skip that is too small, a second skip will be required to ensure that you have sufficient space to store the excess materials that cannot fit.

On the other hand, selecting a skip that is too big will mean that you pay for the fresh air inside your skip.

  • Separate your waste

Skip hire Leyland is ideal if you’re clearing your property. It allows you to remove ornaments, furniture, fireplaces and other fittings that can be difficult to dispose of.

Sorting through junk makes it easier for you to identify what you need and what you don’t need. The services that we provide for skip hire Leyland are arranged to offer convenience and allow you to get rid of waste quickly and easily.

  • Strategically load waste

When it comes to skip hire Preston, there is an art to loading waste – allowing you to maximise the space available and ensure that there are no gaps.

Another way to get more out of your skip hire Preston is to saw or break up awkwardly shaped items. Doing this will prevent you from filling your skip too quickly and will allow you to squeeze more in.

The best thing to do is to start with heavy items at the bottom of the skip and throw lighter materials in last – making sure that there is no empty space inside the skip.

  • Don’t overload it

Here at Lostock Skips, we only accept level loaded skips to ensure that there is no compromise to health and safety. Waste shouldn’t be falling out of the skips that we deliver for skip hire Wigan and it should be easy for us to lift them onto the back of our fleets.

Fines are issued to those who choose not to follow skip hire regulations and overload their skip regardless. In addition to fines, you’ll either need to order another skip or have the excess material collected, which costs you more in the long run.

  • Keep hazardous waste out

Hiring a skip is a practical way to remove junk and other unwanted items but there are certain items that cannot be thrown in the skips that we provide at Lostock Skips.

Asbestos, batteries, chemicals, fridges, freezers, paint and TVs are all examples of items that are restricted from skip hire Wigan and should be disposed of carefully.

When we collect skips from your premises, we take them to be sorted thoroughly at the sorting facility- so don’t be tempted to hide it in the middle of your skip!

Jo and the team and truly fabulous! Quick, efficient service with courteous and helpful drivers! Absolutely 5* and always my go to company!

Amazing customer service and delivery was as promised. Price was extremely competitive- keep up the great work 👍

Lucy was so helpful in choosing a skip and the whole process was very quick and easy from start to finish. We had previously heard some stories from friends where other skip companies let them down on the pickup date, leaving them blocked in on their driveways, but Lucy reassured me of the pick up time and did not let me down. Everything went as planned and was a smooth process from start to finish. The price was decent for a 4 yard skip and the gentleman who dropped it off was very clear on what could be in the skip too. Thankyou very much!!read more

Would highly recommended this skip company. Was in desperate need of a skip at short notice due to drainage problems and this company worked to re-jiggle the days diary to get one to me the same day despite calling after 8am on a Saturday morning!! Saved me having piles of mess in my garden over bank holiday weekend... cannot thank you enough and will be using you again in the future. Good advice on skip sizes and prices too ☺read more

1st ever ordering and paying for a skip online. Easy website to navigate simple and efficient. Had to check the day after just to be sure, spoke to Sarah who made me feel like I was speaking to a friend. Skip arrived and positioned by Eliot to an excellent standard, he to was polite, laid back, extremely competent and again ever so friendly (not your fake American type friendly) You can even order online for the same day if slots available. Thank you DD paving for the recommendation. Lostock skips far surpass other skip companies. You should all be very chuffed and proud of yourselves 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍read more
