Getting a successful hire of a skip
Getting a successful hire of a skip starts with getting the cheapest hire quotations can be found by contacting your local skip hire company directly rather than using an Internet Broker or Agent who adds their commission to the price of your hire and if a road permit is required may not include this in the quotation distorting the final price you pay.
When talking directly to you local companies you may find that you can save further money by then suggesting to you what size skip is best for the amount of waste you wish to remove.
As most skips are placed on customer property knowing that whilst delivery and collection and where the skip will be placed is information you need to stop any damage to your property.
The one single biggest complaint is damage caused during delivery or collection which is you the customer’s responsibility not that of the company.
Therefore the discussion you should have before agreeing on the hire is so important to have and avoid any disputes afterwards which nobody really wants.
All companies want to provide the perfect service for you.
Communication is the best way to achieve a trouble-free hire with no damage caused.
Filling the skip
It’s not the skip driver being unreasonable – it’s the law! They are legally bound to not carry unsafe loads and unfortunately, many people order smaller skips than they need in order to save a few quid. Our advice – order a larger skip than you think you need because you will always fill it – just don’t go over the line! If not sure ask the skip company what size skip will meet your needs.
