How does skip hire work

Hiring a skip is a great idea – especially if you’re undertaking DIY work or planning a renovation project this summer.

Here at Skips Preston, we make skip hire as easy as possible, allowing you to get rid of rubbish quickly. To ensure efficient disposal, we offer our services widespread across the northwest, including areas such as Chorley.

Let us explain how Chorley skip hire works and how to hire a skip from Skips Preston today:

  1. Book a skip

The first thing you’ll need to do when booking a skip is to select a convenient date and time. We deliver skips Monday to Friday, between 7.00am and 5.00pm and accept payment online or cash on delivery.

  1. Choose a suitable skip size

After choosing a date, you need to hire a skip that’s big enough to accommodate the waste your project generates. Hiring a skip that’s too small won’t save you money but could compromise your safety, the safety of passers-by and the safety of our fleet drivers.

We supply:

  • 2yd mini skips
  • 4yd midi skips
  • 6yd midi skips
  • 8yd maxi skips

  1. Arrange skip delivery

Saving you the hassle, we take care of the transportation of domestic skips and ensure they arrive on time. We can deliver a skip to your door, allowing you to start your project promptly and ensure that they are positioned safely.

If you need the skip placing on the road, a permit will be required – but rest assured Skips Preston can take care of this for you and visit the local council on your behalf to ensure your skip hire Chorley complies with stringent regulations.

  1. Fill the skip

Once the skip has been delivered, you’re good to start loading it with waste – but be mindful that not everything can be thrown in the skips we supply for skip hire in Chorley and some materials require careful disposal. If you need any clarification for what can or can’t go in skips, contact us today.

When loading the skip, start with large, heavy items at the bottom and pile smaller items on top of these – filling as much space as possible.

  1. Schedule skip collection

If you know how long it will take to complete your project, we advise choosing a collection date when you order your skip. If you’re not certain as to how long you need the skip for, you can arrange collection by calling 01772 827 603 to let us know you’re ready for the skip to be picked up.
