Whether you’re giving your entire home a facelift or simply revamping your bathroom, it’s likely you’ll generate a lot of waste that will need to be disposed of promptly and correctly- but what’s the best way to tackle the job? When dealing with a mass of waste materials, a skip is by far the most sensible and logical solution. Not only are these containers sturdy enough to carry waste in large quantities, but it’s also the most efficient way to dispose of different types of waste in one fell swoop.

Still not convinced? Below, we explore just a few of the many reasons why you should hire a skip for your upcoming home refurb.


In addition to being suitable for all different kinds of waste, skips are specifically designed to make rubbish easy to unload and store. Further to this, the service that accompanies the skip itself is designed with the customer’s convenience in mind. Companies always strive to offer a punctual delivery and pick-up and many even offer same day skip hire services. If you’re thinking that a skip is going to be a hassle that you don’t need during a busy construction project, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Long-established companies are in touch with the needs of their customers and will always put them first in order to deliver a refined and convenient service.


With the future of our planet being surrounded by uncertainty, it’s now more important than ever to be proactive in protecting the environment- especially when it comes to waste disposal. Many skip hire companies promise to recycle as much of the waste they receive as possible in order to prevent it from being sent to landfill sites and will strive to be eco-conscious in all aspects of business. So, if you’re concerned about the impact your waste has on the environment, ensure you work with a skip hire company that shares your values.


It’s no secret that home renovation projects can be costly and you may be concerned that you simply can’t justify hiring a skip at this time. However, many hire companies rent out skips at an extremely affordable price, allowing you to keep costs down. Also, when you think about the amount of money you’d need to spend on petrol to transport your waste to the relevant facilities yourself, it’s actually far more cost-effective to dispose of it via a skip.
