Avoid Endless Trips to the Tip by Hiring a Skip

Avoid endless trips to the tip by hiring a skip

If you’ve got a big building or home renovating project underway, you might not like the thought of those endless trips to the tip. However, if you’ve got your eye on hiring a skip, you may wonder whether it’s a suitable idea for your project. In other words, is it a worthy rival for the tip?

Is hiring a skip better than trips to the tip?

There are plenty of reasons why hiring a skip can be a more efficient way to dispose of waste than going to the tip. However, it can depend on what you’re looking to throw away. Anything that can’t be put into a skip will need to go elsewhere. And that could be your local tip.

If you’re managing a complete home renovation or building project, you may end up having multiple trips to the tip over many months. Whereas, with a skip, you can load all the appropriate waste into one container on-site. It’s certainly a lot less hassle. However, if you’re only looking to throw away small amounts of waste for a one-off project, say a few bin bags full, then a trip to the tip is more than feasible.

It’s all about choosing the solution that will be the most efficient and cost-effective for your requirements.

That being said, below are some of the benefits of choosing a skip over the tip.

  • Save time on separating waste
    If you’re looking to remove a range of different items, a mixed waste skip could be your best bet. It saves you the hassle of separating all the types of rubbish for the tip. With same-day hiring services available, you also won’t have to wait around.
  • Avoid the risk of damaging your vehicle
    When loading bulky, heavy items, you run the risk of damaging or dirtying your vehicle. Whereas, with a skip, the rubbish can be contained away from your vehicle.
  • Less manual labour
    Skips can be placed near to your building site or property. You also won’t have to worry about loading and unloading onto a car, lorry or van. The waste will be removed by the skip hiring company. So, all you have to do is fill the skip and we’ll take care of the rest.
  • Avoid the long queues and fuel costs
    At busy times, you can easily end up in a long queue for the tip. And, with hefty fuel costs or for building projects where time equals money, you might just be better off hiring a skip.
