  • Domestic Waste
  • Organic Waste

  • Soils
  • Wood
  • Plastic

How can skip hire save you money?

Are you looking to get the best value for your money? Skip Hire Chorley is a cheap method for disposing of waste, however, there are a number of ways that we could potentially save you even more money at Wigan Skips.

For customers who are looking to dispose of large bulky materials, don’t use your skip for usable items. Any furniture or materials that could be reused should not be thrown inside your skip as they take up a considerable amount of space.

The cost of your Skip Hire Chorley is linked closely to the size of the skip. To avoid ordering a skip that is too big or too small, carefully think about your project and estimate how much waste will be generated. Choosing a suitable skip will prevent you from paying over the odds for your skip and allow you to save money.

Before you decide whether to hire a skip, we suggest requesting quotes from various providers (at least 3) as this will enable you to make comparisons between the services and prices that they have to offer.

Do you need a permit for your skip hire?

A permit for Skip Hire Leyland is issued by the local authority and a requirement of customers who are planning to leave their skip on the road. If you have space on your driveway and the skip will fit, you needn’t worry about obtaining a permit for your Skip Hire Leyland because it’s stored on your private property.

For those who don’t obtain a permit, you could be handed an expensive fine for not acquiring the required documentation for your Skip Hire Leyland.

If you do need a permit for your skip hire, this is not a problem for us at Wigan Skips, we can obtain the permit on your behalf, saving you the hassle but ensuring that you legally dispose of waste.

How to get more out of your skip hire?

Our Skip Hire Preston services are ideal if you’re looking to dispose of waste in a way that’s convenient and safe. Here are 4 tips to help you to get the most out of your Skip Hire Preston:

  1. Don’t hide prohibited items in the middle of your skip.

If you hide items in your skip, we will come across them when we collect your skip and empty the waste out, separating it into “recyclables” and “non-recyclables”. If any hazardous items are found in your skip, you could be faced with a fine for not adhering to skip hire policy.

  1. Be responsible for your skip.

Once we have delivered our skips to your premises, you are held liable for the skip whilst it’s in your possession. As well as the skip, you need to monitor what is being thrown in your skip. Be mindful of unwanted additions- you can still be fined if fly-tippers have chosen to leave their dangerous materials in your skip.

  1. Always choose a licensed waste carrier.

To ensure that your Skip Hire Preston is efficient, choose a licensed waste carrier who you can trust. A reputable skip hire company will arrange skip delivery and collection that is convenient for you but will also take care of the waste once your skip is full, transporting it to the nearest recycling centre.

  1. Dispose of waste sustainably.

When it comes to disposing of waste in a way that’s environmentally friendly, you cannot beat skip hire! Our services are extremely efficient and tailored to match your needs. We empty the waste from your skip and thoroughly sort through it to identify which materials can be recycled and which cannot.
