At Cherry Hill Waste, our skip hire services cover a range of sizes and applications, covering both commercial and domestic clients. Below, we provide a detailed guide to our skip hire services, offering expert insight into which skip is most suitable for your project.
Skip Hire | Types Of Skip
Skip Hire may sound simple in theory, but knowing just what size skip you’ll need for the job at hand often requires experience and prior knowledge. Hiring the wrong skip size for your waste disposal will naturally run the risk of hiring a skip far too small to contain your waste, or, at the opposite end of the spectrum, you could potentially even overestimate and pay a premium for a large skip that would otherwise have been unnecessary.
If you are undertaking a domestic DIY or gardening project, for example, you will likely consider a mini-skip, as this will be ideal for containing a small amount of waste, but if you are currently operating heavy machinery on an industrial construction site, a roll-on/roll-off skip may be preferable. Below, we take a closer look at the most popular types of skip provided by Cherry Hill Waste, highlighting their key differences and unique applications based on unit size.
Mini Skip (2-4 Cubic Yards)
Mini skips are typically utilised for domestic clean-up and waste disposal purposes only and are an ideal solution for household renovations, kitchen and bathroom refits, garden projects and waste disposal. Mini skips range between the following sizes:
- Length: 4ft (1.2m) – 6ft (1.83m)
- Width: 3ft (0.91m) – 4ft 3inch (1.29m)
- Height: 2ft 6inch (0.76m) – 3ft 2inch (0.97m)
Midi Skip (4-8 Cubic Yards)
An extension of the above, Midi skips are the ideal solution for kitchen and bathroom refits and garden or household renovations, offering a greater capacity for waste. This makes them the perfect fit for medium-sized projects or heavy waste clearance jobs. Midi skips range between the following sizes:
- Length: 6ft (1.83m) – 12ft (3.66m)
- Width: 4ft 3inch (1.29m) – 5ft 6inch (1.68m)
- Height: 3ft 2inch (0.97m) – 4ft (1.22m)
Builders Skip (8-12 Cubic Yards)
Ideal for all types of domestic clearance and waste disposal, builder’s skips will also handle most construction waste and are therefore one of the most popular types of skip sizes on the market. Suitable for large house clearance, major building projects and the majority of construction sites, builder’s skips range between the following sizes:
- Length: 12ft (3.66m) – 12ft 3inch (3.74m)
- Width: 5ft 6inch (1.68m) – 5ft 10inch (1.78m)
- Height: 4ft (1.22m) – 5ft 6inch (1.68m)
Roll-On/Roll-Off Skip (20-40 Cubic Yards)
When it comes to commercial waste disposal and clearance, there really is no better alternative than a Roll-on/Roll-off Skip. Hiring a skip of this size from Cherry Hill Waste will ensure you are able to cover practically any kind of commercial or industrial waste, handling vast quantities with ease. Roll-on/Roll-off skips can be used for domestic purposes, particularly for large property renovations or construction projects, but are typically used for commercial purposes only, due to their vast size and scope. Ideal for construction and demolition projects for commercial building projects, Roll-on/Roll-off skips range between the following sizes:
- Length: 20ft (6.1m)
- Width: 7ft 9inch (2.36m) – 8ft (2.43m)
- Height: 4ft 1inch (1.47m) – 8ft (2.43m)
Benefits Of Using Skip Hire Services
There are a number of essential benefits to using skip hire services, from increased efficiency to manageable costs and greater convenience. Below, we highlight the key benefits of using skip hire services:
One of the most significant advantages of skip hire is the speed and efficiency with which you can dispose of your waste. Skip hire cuts out the middleman and eliminates the need to make repeated trips to the tip to dispose of your waste by hand. Instead, you will simply fill up your skip with black bins full of waste and wait for your skip to be collected and emptied when it’s ready. This speeds up the process of waste disposal dramatically, ensuring skip hire is efficient and easy.
In similar terms, hiring a skip will keep costs relatively contained, removing the costs of fuel spent travelling to and from landfill sites. Instead, the cost of your skip will be negotiated in the first instance and won’t fluctuate, meaning it could work out more cost-effective, depending on the quantities of waste in need of disposal.
As an extension of the above, using skip hire services is remarkably convenient, removing the need to pack your car up full of black bin bags, wait for your local tip to be open and then having to inevitably spend the entire morning waiting in a queue. Instead, skip hire can be straight to your front door or construction site, making it especially easy, stress-free and highly convenient. Then, once the skip has reached its maximum capacity, it can be simply picked up, emptied and returned back to you if needed.
Appropriate, effective and professional waste disposal is pivotal to protecting our environment, removing unnecessary landfill waste, or worse, the desire to burn waste in your own garden, which has lasting impacts on our collective environment. Skip hire services, however, ensure that your waste is disposed of correctly and in an environmentally conscious manner, reducing the impact on our planet. Waste is properly sorted, allocated and disposed of in the appropriate way, with much of our waste recycled to prevent further environmental pollution. Equally, at Cherry Hill Waste, we can also provide waste treatments that will further eliminate any lingering toxic substances which could impact the land itself.
Health & Safety
Skip hire services won’t just ensure your commercial or domestic waste disposal is more efficient, safe and environmentally conscious it will also create a safer, cleaner and more accessible environment for colleagues and close ones. Skip hire prevents a build-up of waste around your property or commercial space, some of which may be hazardous, such as toxic substances or broken glass, instead offering a singular storage solution for your waste, improving cleanliness, safety standards and accessibility.
