Hiring a Skip when Moving House: 3 Things to Consider

Moving house is one of the most stressful things you’ll ever experience, so of course you’ll want to make sure that the big day runs smoothly. This not only means ensuring your possessions are transported with care and attention, but that you’re able to dispose of all of the rubbish you’ve accumulated over the years, from tired furniture to cupboard clutter and old-fashioned clothes. After all, who wants a load of useless items taking up valuable space in their new home?

Hire a skip in West Lothian today and get rid of everything you no longer need well in advance of moving day. So what should you consider before you go ahead and contact us?

Labelled Moving BoxesThe Size of the Skip You’ll Need

If you’ve never hired a skip before, you may not realise that there are a few different sizes to choose from. Think about how much waste you’re planning to dispose of, and make sure you don’t select a model that will be too small. It’s against the law to transport overflowing skips, so all of your rubbish should comfortably fit in it.

Also bear in mind the length of time you might need the skip for, and how long it will take you to clear out all of your rubbish. You don’t want to find that you actually need it for longer than you thought!

What You’re Throwing Away

Before hiring a skip, you should be well aware that some items in your home may need to be disposed of by other means. Fridges and other white goods, medical or building waste and anything asbestos-related are just a few examples. If you’re not sure, check with us before hiring.

Where You’re Going to Put the Skip

If you don’t have enough space on your land for a skip, and you need to place it on the road or some other type of public land, chances are you’ll have to pay for a permit. Save yourself some hassle by asking us to organise that for you.
