What Influences Skip Hire Prices?

There are many different factors that can influence the price of skip hire, but you also must take into consideration that different companies also charge differently. Here are a few of the factors that can influence the price; however, for our specific prices, please give us a call. 

Hire Duration

Depending on how long you need to hire out your skip, this can add to the cost. If you only need your skip for a couple of hours, then it will be cheaper than doing a huge project and needing it for a longer duration of time. 

Your Location

Depending on whereabouts you live in the UK, skip hire prices can vary. For example, in other regions such as Scotland, hire prices are a lot lower. To find out our specific prices for your location, please give us a call today, and we'll be happy to help.

Waste Material

It also makes a difference what you are throwing away as waste, as some materials are prohibited. If you are found to throw any of these prohibited materials in the skip, then you will be charged extra. Therefore, it is important to check which materials you can and can't throw away.

Weight Limits

Skips come in a wide variety of sizes and weight limits. If you are only throwing away some garden materials, then you will only need a smaller skip as it won't be heavy. However, if you are doing a construction project and throwing away heavy materials, then you will need a stronger skip, which will be more expensive.

Council Permits

Depending on where you are keeping your skip, sometimes you need a council permit. This is usually if your skip is in a public area, or needs to be on the road. It is important to check if you'll need a council permit before you hire your skip.

Size of the Skip you Need

There is a wide range of skip sizes to choose from, depending on what you need the skip for. Small projects such as gardening or small home projects will need a smaller skip; however, large construction projects will need a larger skip size. The size of the skip will cause the hire prices to differ.
