With a vast range of skip companies out there and just as many different skips to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Nevertheless, if you are planning to dispose of some household waste or if you are undertaking a huge commercial project – this is going to impact the type of skip you have.
With this in mind, here in this blog, we discuss the fundamental differences between commercial and domestic skip hire. Read on to discover more!
What are the different uses?
The reasons why someone may need to use a skip vary massively and again this coincides with the kind of skip you may need. Here we outline the key differences:
Domestic skips tend to be smaller in size and will likely be used for clearing out a property. This could be due to a standard spring-clean or perhaps due to moving house or a renovation. Maybe you need to get rid of some slightly more heavy-duty household waste such as concrete, plywood or garden waste. Having a domestic skip is just what you carry out these kinds of tasks.
These types of skips are noticeably larger and often used on building sites. Just because they are larger doesn’t mean that their sizes don’t vary and they are available in a variety of sizes still. Due to its scale, this type of skip will often be delivered via roll-on roll-off van.
Will I require a license for my domestic or commercial skip?
You will not require a licence if your skip is placed on private land. But if it is located on public property or a road, you will need to ensure it meets the necessary visibility regulations and you will need to have the correct permit. You will not be able to put a skip on the pavement either as you may run the risk of being fined. The key is to place your skip somewhere safe and visible. This will permit you to carry out the job with ease.
