Local Skip Hire is Easier Than You Think

Hiring a skip these days is so quick and easy, we suspect you could book it all right now from your computer or phone. It’s nowhere near as intimidating as you might think, trust me! To avoid any unnecessary stress, here’s a quick guide to hiring a skip.

Find Your Local Skip Hire Company

Thanks to the internet finding a local skip company can be as simple as typing ‘Skip hire near me’ or ‘skips near me’ into a search engine and within seconds you’ll have a list of companies in the area. You could also check the website of the local council as they often list businesses in the area. Of course, to ensure a positive experience we recommend you ensure the skip company has a valid waste carrier license number and also take a look at customer reviews to avoid company’s others have had bad experiences with.

Hire Online or Via the Phone

Once you’ve found a good local skip hire company, you can book your skip hire usually either online or on the phone.  The process is quick and easy, if you are unsure of exactly what you need it may be better to phone the company and speak with someone directly as they will be able to help you decide what size skip is necessary for your needs. At Mr Rubble skip hire in Sheffield it’s a simple 3 step process to booking your skip online:

Step 1: Skip requirements. This is where you would provide information on: the size skip you need, the date you would like it delivered, where you would like the skip to be placed, the kind of waste you will be throwing away (garden, building or mixed) and any special instructions.

Step 2: Delivery & Billing Address.

Step 3: Confirmation!

It’s that easy!! 

The Skip Gets Delivered

Now is the day of your skip delivery. The skip hire company will deliver the skip to your address and place it as per your instructions. You’ve already organized, paid for and had the skip delivered – all at the click of a button! Now all you need to do is fill the skip.

Fill the Skip

One of the most asked questions is, “What can I put in the skip?”. The waste you can put in a skip varies greatly; garden waste, building waste and mixed waste tend to be the main groups. It is easier to answer the question, “What CAN’T I put in the skip?” as the list is way shorter. Current legislations state you cannot put the following items into a skip:

Call or arrange for pick up

Once your skip is full you can arrange for it to be picked up. If you hadn’t agreed upon a collection date at the beginning, once the skip is full you can contact the skip hire company and arrange for it to be collected. If you require another skip you can easily organize this at the same time. The skip hire company will collect the full skip and responsibly dispose of the contents (Mr Rubble recycles 93% of all waste that comes to us!).

That’s it! Easy as pie.
