Searching For Skips Near Me? Here’s Our Guide To The Options Available

Are you seeking skip bin hire services in the Bilston area? If you need to rent a skip, we’re sure to have the perfect option.

That’s a key point. We offer a range of options because we know skips can be used for a range of different projects. Some people rent skips because they are simply disposing of a relatively small amount of household waste.

Others need skips that are suited for large industrial projects. There are also instances when you may need a skip that’s somewhere in the middle. One that you might use for a minor household project might be too small to be sufficient, but one that’s too large may simply be unnecessary. You may not even have the space on your property for such a skip.

Depending on the nature of your project, you might not even be entirely certain you know what size skip you need, or what type of skip you need.

Luckily, at Black Country Skip Hire, we offer plenty of options. We’re also happy to help you better understand which is right for your goals. On top of that, we strive to offer our services affordably.

This guide will help you get a clearer sense of what types of skips are available. Again, while we’ll be happy to discuss the subject in further detail should you need extra assistance, the following points will make it easier to determine what type of skip is right for your project.

Skip Sizes

When you need a skip, you need one of the proper size. Obviously, if it’s too small, it won’t suit your needs. That said, you don’t want to waste your money on a skip that’s larger than necessary.

Luckily, if you’re seeking a skip hire, we offer skips in a range of sizes. Our mini skip is 2 cubic yards. This would be ideal for garden waste and similar materials. If you need something slightly larger, our midi skip is 4 cubic yards. As with the mini skip, it’s useful for garden waste, as well as house clearance.

Even larger is our maxi skip. At 8 cubic yards, it’s useful for such large projects as residential construction. Additionally, we offer an 8-yard enclosed skip, and a 16-yard enclosed skip. This is a smart option to consider if you’re planning a major commercial project and expect to generate a substantial amount of waste.

That’s an important point to keep in mind. Skips are necessary for home projects, industrial projects, and commercial projects. However, the skip that you would need when removing basic household waste is certainly not going to be large enough when you’re transporting large amounts of industrial waste. Regardless of the nature of your project, we can offer the skip you need.

Of course, determining what size skip you need isn’t always easy. This is particularly true if your skip hire needs are fairly inconsistent. If you don’t have experience using skips often, you might simply not fully understand which size is suitable for your project.

Don’t worry if this is the case. We’ll gladly discuss the topic in greater detail if you need assistance choosing the proper size. Simply let us know what your project involves, and we’ll suggest the best option.

Roro Skips

Along with the options described above, we also offer roro skips, or roll on, roll off skips. Our 25 cubic yard roro skip is perfect for such jobs as demolition or excavation work. If you need something a little bigger, we have a roro skip that can hold 35 cubic yards of waste.

Roro skips are often ideal when you need to transport waste easily. Rubbish disposal is much easier when you have a skip you can use to both dispose of waste, and transport it to the necessary location efficiently.

Keep this in mind if you own a business that generates substantial waste during projects. The more efficiently you can dispose of it, the more efficiently you can complete projects in general. This simply provides you with an advantage over the competition. If you work fast, more clients will likely hire you. Spend too much time on rubbish disposal tasks, and you’ll fall behind, giving potential clients a reason to hire one of your competitors instead.

Skip Hire Prices

Size isn’t the only factor to consider when you need to rent a skip. It’s obviously also necessary to keep your budget in mind. Again, with our range of options, you’ll easily find one to suit your needs and your price range. Our goal is to beat quotes from local competitors. While we don’t sacrifice quality in the name of savings, we do make an attempt to ensure our skips are priced competitively.

Various factors will of course impact the cost. What size skip you need, how many skips you need, how soon you need them, and other factors will impact what you pay. When you request a skip, we’ll consider all necessary factors before providing you with a quote. Again, we also recommend checking with us if you’ve already received a quote from a local competitor.

There is a good chance we’ll be able to offer our skips at a lower cost than you would otherwise be paying. We’re able to offer competitive prices due to the nature of our tip by the tonne service. We charge you based on the amount of waste you generate, so you don’t end up paying more than is necessary. You only pay for the waste that’s generated.

Skip Bin Hire Restrictions

It is important to keep in mind that some items and materials can’t be placed in our skips. Knowing what these items are ahead of time will prevent you from requesting a skip, only to learn it isn’t sufficient for your needs.

Hazardous chemicals and waste cannot be disposed of in our skips, nor can asbestos, pressurized containers, tyres and car batteries, fluorescent tubes, food waste, refrigerators, freezers, TV’s, cookers, and computers. This is merely a safety issue.

That said, sometimes it can be unclear whether you’re going to generate the type of waste that can’t be stored in a skip. If you’re not sure whether any of our restrictions will apply to your project, we’ll once again be happy to discuss the topic in greater detail.

Sometimes you simply don’t know whether the waste you generate would qualify as restricted waste. If you’re not sure whether your waste can be disposed of in our skips, don’t immediately assume it can’t. Contact us to learn more.

Projects You May Rent a Skip For

It’s worth noting that the following examples by no means represent all the types of projects for which you may need skip bin hire services. There are simply many different types of jobs that require efficient and convenient rubbish disposal. However, these are certainly noteworthy examples. When you understand what types of projects require skip bins, you can make the necessary arrangements to rent one well in advance. This helps the entire project run more smoothly.

For instance, if you have a garden on your property, odds are good it will generate some waste over time. Disposing of this with a traditional household bin may not be practical. Instead, a skip bin would be necessary. This is also the case if you’re cleaning out your home.

Of course, clearing out your home isn’t the only time you might want to rent a skip bin. A home renovation project can also involve the generation of substantial waste. If you’re planning on renovating your home at any point in the future, be sure to look into our skip bins as the date of the renovation approaches.

Beyond domestic projects, construction, excavation, and demolition work also require swift rubbish disposal. Remember, the less time spent on disposing of rubbish, the faster you can work. Rent one of our skip bins as you prepare for these projects. We’ll provide exactly what you need to dispose of waste as quickly and easily as possible.

We’ll of course make all attempts to accommodate your needs if you have to rent a skip bin unexpectedly. Planning ahead simply gives you more time to consider your options. It also gives you more time to discuss those options with us if you’re uncertain which type of skip bin is right for your purposes.

That being said, as this guide hopefully made clear, we definitely have the skip bin you need. It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a small domestic project, or getting ready for an extensive industrial job.
