3 Reasons to hire a skip for your next renovation project

If you’ve been hit by the DIY bug that’s taken over the country during the pandemic, why stop now restrictions have loosened?

Whether your next project is giving the whole house a spruce up, or you’re investing in a totally new kitchen, you’ll likely need some way to get rid of all the debris and rubbish. But what is the best solution?

Most people would rather take several trips to the tip than have a skip sit on their driveway, but there are a lot of benefits to skip hire in North Wales, and that’s what we’re going to discuss today.


As mentioned above, without a skip, you’ll likely need to take a lot of trips to the tip. But hiring a skip gives you plenty of space for big and small items – even those that are too big to take in the car. Skip hire companies work with the customer in mind, too, meaning you’ll be able to arrange delivery and collection for a time that suits you. All you have to do is finish your renovation and throw all the rubbish in the skip.

Skips are hugely convenient in ensuring you can continue your renovation without delay, and as soon as the work is done, you’ll be free from all the rubbish and can get back to enjoying your new home.

It’s eco-friendly

As well as saving you fuel on all those trips to the tip, fewer trips mean a lower impact on the environment.

What’s more, skips are no longer simply emptied into a landfill. Skip providers play a big role in protecting the environment, and work with local recycling plants to ensure waste that can be recycled, is. They’ll work to salvage as much as they can from your filled skip, so you can rest assured that hiring a skip is actually a lot eco-friendlier than you first thought.

They’re surprisingly affordable

Most people assume that skips are quite an investment and only for big renovations. Renovations can cost a lot, so it’s understandable why so many people think they can’t justify hiring a skip to get rid of the waste. Contrary to popular belief, it’s actually incredibly affordable. When you also think about how much it would cost to get rid of all the waste yourself, you could even consider it a bargain.

Skips come in a variety of sizes, so there’s no need to pay for a huge container if your project is only small. That said, most skips are priced by cubic meter, with larger products having a larger discount. As such, it’s sometimes better to hire a larger skip and do a variety of projects in one go. Perhaps you also need to do the garden?

If you’re looking for a convenient, eco-friendly and affordable way to dispose of waste after a big project (and really, who isn’t?), a skip is a great choice. Skips tend to get a bad rep of being eyesores and a simple way to get waste to a landfill quicker, but after doing some research, you’ll find they are much more than a simple metal container.
