There are quite a few things you should consider when organising your domestic skip hire in relation to what you can put into the skip, which size you will require for your project and whether you’ll need any permits. In this blog, we run through a couple of the relevant things you should consider for a successful skip hire experience.
Lots of skip companies will provide a vast selection of skip sizes for you to select from. The idea is that you select the size which is suitable and the amount you’ll be wanting to dispose of. If you order a skip which is too big, you are essentially wasting your money. All while a skip that is too small will entail you having to order multiple, costing you more money. Try to assess what size you need to save yourself time and cash.
If you require a permit or you don’t, this will be dependent on the area you’re based in. It’s always ideal to establish this early on as in some areas a skip placed on a road will need a permit. You need to make sure your skip is legally placed.
There are a few options available for where to put your skip. As mentioned above, skips on the road will often require a permit, but you could also have it delivered to your driveway, or even your front or back garden if there is space and enough for access. These options would get rid of the need for a permit so it is worth taking the time to assess your options prior to hiring a skip.

There are a few reasons you should not do this, the key reason is that it goes against fire regulations as it can be highly dangerous – it may even lead to you being reported to the Environment Agency. You could also cause damage to the skip which may result in paying a hefty price for the skip to be replaced.
The classic rule is that your waste should not come up higher than the top of the skip container. Too much waste in one skip is referred to overfilling, this means the maximum weight is most likely to be exceeded and means the driver can be prosecuted because of the dangers this causes.
