Regardless of whether you are renting a roll-on roll-off to remove waste when moving house, or instead disposing of tonnes of rubbish clearing out a massive tower block, hiring a skip can cost considerable money. If you are looking to minimise the cost of your waste removal as much as possible, read our following four tips to lower your skip hire costs:

Book In Advance

Arranging your skip hire in advance can save you a considerable amount of money. By ordering it at least a week prior should be able to earn you at least a modest saving. If you choose to do this it also gives you time to order a skip permit if having one is a requirement for your particular situation and location.

Maximise Your Space

Just as carefully folding and packing up your belongings before your holiday flight allows you to fit more into a suitcase, being careful when filling a skip can certainly maximise your skip space.

You should also be aware that skip hire companies set weight restrictions and may have regulations that ban you from filling them with certain types of waste. If you do not follow these guidelines then you may have to pay extra. The list of prohibited materials may include:

  • Asbestos
  • Car batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Food waste
  • Fridges and freezers
  • Gas bottles
  • Oils, solvents and liquids
  • Medical waste

Compare The Prices Of Local Skip Hire Companies

Like most times in life when you are purchasing a product or service, it is always best to research a range of different companies’ prices. You can save significant amounts of money by just taking the time to have a look at different businesses. If you ring up a skip hire company and have a chat with a member of staff, you might even be able to haggle a lower price.

Always be aware though that just because a company is the cheapest, it doesn’t mean that they have the best service!
