Hiring a skip for the first time can be daunting but can also save you the hassle of driving waste to the tip yourself!

Here’s everything you need to know about skip hire Bolton:

  1. Select the correct skip size

Before you rush into skip hire, take the time to weigh up all the different options available to you. Several factors contribute to skip size, including:

  • scale of project
  • type of waste
  • amount of rubbish
  • project duration

Most skip hire companies offer a range of domestic and commercial skips – starting from 2-cubic yards, ranging up to 40-cubic yards – to accommodate the requirements of all customers.

  1. Choose where the skip will be placed

One of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make is where your skip will be left. Domestic skips are often placed on driveways where they can be easily accessed – making disposal easier. But if you don’t have space for a skip on your drive, we can leave it on the road in front of your property.

Skips left on the road require a permit from the local council. Reputable skip hire companies, like Preston Skips, can obtain this on your behalf to ensure that your skip hire Bolton complies with legal obligations.

Be mindful that skips are transported on the back of reliable fleets, so there needs to be sufficient space for them to manoeuvre safely.

  1. Arrange skip delivery and collection

After choosing a skip and deciding where it will go, you’ll need to arrange a time and date for the skip to be delivered. All fleets are fitted with traceable technology and the Preston Skips team will keep you in the loop when making the journey from their transfer station to your property in Bolton.

If you know how long you’ll need the skip for, why not make things that little bit easier and schedule collection too? Relax, if you don’t, call 01772 827 603 as soon as it’s full and they’ll arrange to collect it at a convenient time.

  1. Load the skip

Skip hire Bolton is great for getting rid of plastic, paper, cardboard, metal, soil, rubble and bricks, but unfortunately, some items aren’t suitable for skips.

No matter which skip you select, they each have a maximum fill level which can be used as a guideline for when to stop loading it with waste.

Fleet drivers can refuse to collect skips that exceed weight restrictions. Carefully load the skip with waste to avoid being handed a hefty fine for not following strict skip hire regulations. It’s also not safe for them to transport skips that are overloaded as materials could slide out of the sides of the skip and cause injury – either to you, them or passers-by.

  1. Waste disposal

Opting for skip hire with the Preston Skips team is a fantastic idea. When they collect your full skip, they dispose of it on your behalf, making sure all items are handled and dealt with correctly.

They take the skip to the nearest sorting facility and aim to recycle 90% of rubbish – making skip hire Bolton a sustainable method of disposal.
