Hiring a skip to get rid of some of your old things is a brilliant idea; It is an easy way to dispose of items when you’re having a clean out and can even be environmentally friendly if you hire a skip from the right company (like us). Although it might just seem like filling a skip is as easy as throwing things in, in whatever order you like, there is a correct way to fill a skip in order to get the most out of it. To help you get the most out of your money, we’ve got a few tips to help you out.
1. Fill the Skip with Lighter Items First
The best order to fill your skip is light items first, and then heavier items on top of these. The heavier items will compress the lighter items down when you place them in this order, which will give you a little extra space to fit more items. Putting the lighter items on top of the heavier items will result in you running out of space sooner.
2. Break up Large Items
Smaller items fit into a skip and use space far better than larger items. If you have any large branches, bits of furniture, or anything else then it will be a good idea to break them down into smaller parts. It may not be possible for some items, but do the best you can to get the most out of your skip space.
3. Hire an Appropriately Sized Skip
Hiring a skip that is big enough to hold everything you want to put in it, but large enough that there is a lot of spare space is the best way to make sure you aren’t paying too much. If you hire a skip that is too small for what you want to throw away then you’ll end up having to hire a second skip. On the other hand, if you hire a skip that is too large then you’ll end up paying for space that you haven’t used. Estimating what skip size is best for you will ensure that you’re paying the correct amount for the rubbish you have.
