When to hire a skip in Preston?

When to hire a skip in Preston?

Whether you’re looking to tackle the clutter in your home this spring or sprucing your garden in time for summer, hiring a skip is a great idea, guaranteed to save you tedious trips to the tip Here at Lostock Skips, we deliver them to various locations across the northwest and have helped many homes and businesses in Preston to dispose of rubbish quickly and safely. But when should you hire a skip?

Moving house

Moving house can be stressful. However, hiring a skip will make it easier for you to pack up your belongings and, in turn, keep your removal costs to a minimum.

Sorting through your possessions and identifying what you need and don’t need will help you to be more organised and box your things up – ready for the big move. Our skip hire services in Preston will allow you to get rid of the things that you don’t want to take with you to your new home – preventing them from cluttering up space.


Is your home lacking style or character? With longer days and warmer weather on the way, now is the time to transform your space into something beautiful. But redecorating can produce a lot of waste, and pushing this to one side will only make it harder for you to complete the job and could potentially increase the risk of trip hazards.

Opting for skip hire in Preston will make it easier for you to dispose of leftover wallpaper, outdated furnishings and broken furniture – before repainting or wallpapering, bringing in new furniture and adding those all-important finishing touches to the room.

Updating the garden

In the UK, we are no stranger to wet weather, and here at Lostock Skips, we know just how difficult it is to keep on top of the garden in the winter. Why not update your garden this spring and take advantage of our Preston skip hire services?

Whether it be a simple renovation to create a tranquil outdoor space or starting from scratch, you’re bound to be left with a lot of rubbish. However, our maxi skips come with drop doors that make it easier for you to load with waste – keeping the mess to a minimum.


Skips are great for construction waste, such as rubble, soil and bricks. If you’re building an extension or a driveway, you’re going to need somewhere to put the waste generated, and skip hire in Preston is an excellent choice.

Depending on the scale of your construction project, we recommend hiring a domestic skip, like the mini or midi skip as these can fit up to 40 bin bags, 8 wheelie bins and 2 sofas. However, if you’re undertaking a large-scale job, one of our commercial skips could be better-suited.


It’s easy to accumulate waste over the winter, but now temperatures are increasing, it’s worth having a good sort through your belongings in every room and throwing out what you don’t need. Decluttering will instantly free up space and help you to be more organised – having a positive impact on health and well-being.

We can arrange skip hire in Preston around your needs – making sure that the waste from your clearance project is handled safely and disposed of correctly. Our experienced fleet drivers will take the waste from your skip to the nearest sorting facility, aiming to recycle 90%.

Could our skip hire services in Preston be of benefit to you? Feel free to call 01204 698 153, Monday to Friday, between 7.00am and 5.30pm, and discuss your requirements in more detail. If you’re ready to book a skip, please complete the online booking form.

Brilliant service from Adam today with a skip. I have worked on the industry for over 20 years and this has been the easiest skip company I have worked with. They dropped it off when said and picked it up with a time we discussed. Thank you Adam. I will definitely be using you again.

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
