How Does Skip Hire Work?

Hiring a skip is a simple process, used for ridding your house, garden, or building site of clutter and excess materials. From DIY to construction projects, skip hire is the ideal waste management service for you. But before you rush to our website and order your skip, we want to take you through the hiring process. There are certain steps that need to be completed before your skip can be delivered.

For example, skips placed on public property requires a permit before use. This permit must be applied for by your chosen waste management company, taking just a few days and with an average cost of £30. At Wasteaway Nationwide, we have years of expert knowledge surrounding waste removal and management, offering various services for each client. Our skip hire is an affordable way of removing waste from your property, with a range of skip sizes available to you.

But how does skip hire actually work? What do you need to know? 

Hiring a skip

After choosing your waste management company, you can start the skip hire process. This begins with deciding which skip size is best suited for your project, ranging from 2 cubic yards to 40 cubic yards. We will need certain details at this stage, such as payment information and your address, to ensure the correct skip is delivered at the right price. Usually, our skips are delivered within 48 hours but it is possible for you to receive your hired skip the same day. Access will be needed from the skip delivery vehicle, which is usually quite large in size. Let us know if your location cannot accommodate our delivery lorries and we will work with you to find a solution.
