Skip Hire for Spring Cleaning

We can safely say that winter is firmly behind us; although the memory of wearing winter coats and scarves isn’t completely forgotten, it is a good time to get rid of your surplus possessions, whether they are in your house, garden or garage, in order to make the most out of your summer.

The task of cleaning the whole of your house is not something you should take lightly. Over the year, we all acquire rubbish that gets forgotten about; it is for this reason that spring cleaning is popular in England. If you would like to make the task easier for yourself, then it is well worth hiring a skip from us here at Buchanan Skip Hire. Don’t underestimate the amount of clutter you have; a skip hire service is extremely cost effective, saving you a considerable amount of time and money because you won’t need to keep going to and from the tip.

We have a range of skips that would be ideal for domestic use; including our 2YD Mini skip. This skip won’t take up a large amount of space, but it can still store many of your unwanted possessions. In addition to our reliable skip hire service, we can make life easier for you with our waste disposal service.

Over the years, we have come to have a fair amount of experience with regards to the hiring of a skip during spring cleaning. Thanks to our ‘hands on’ approach, we have acquired knowledge on many best practices for your clean. Below are some helpful tips for you to consider during your time spent cleaning.


The night before your clean, go into each room and work out what needs removing, making a note of any items that could need breaking down. Your cleaning tools will need to be ready too, so make sure they are maintained and ready to go. During the actual time of your clean, keep to one task and one room at a time.

Skip Space

As we have mentioned before, hiring a skip is an excellent way to remove rubbish. It is a common misconception to think that you are just restricted to your drive when you hire a skip. Perhaps you don’t have a drive or need it for your car? That’s not a problem though, because legally speaking you can put it on the road. You will have to get permission from the council, so if you are considering having a skip in the road then let them know in advance.


The phrase ‘Many hands make light work’ definitely applies when you are considering a big clearout. Get the whole family involved, and even ask your friends to join in with the promise of a drink for their effort. You will be surprised by how quickly you get things done with a whole team of cleaners.
