Alternative To Skip Hire: Rubbish Removal

If you have recently done some renovating in your home or business or just completed an intense spring cleaning, you may have a good amount of rubbish that you need removed. Most people will think to hire a skip, but there are other alternatives to this.

There are also rubbish removal services that you can use. Both have their advantages and disadvantages so it is important to do your research and figure out which option is the best for your budget and your individual needs. Remember, depending on your location you may need to get permission to do any type of rubbish removal.

Rubbish Removal Services Compared to Skip Hire

Hiring a rubbish removal service over a skip hire has many advantages. For the most part, when compared to a skip hire, rubbish removal can be significantly cheaper. If you are on a strict budget, the lower cost of rubbish removal may be incentive enough to choose them. There is also no limit on the amount of rubbish you have. For example, if you overestimate the amount of rubbish you have and hire a skip based on this wrong amount, you could be paying for a larger skip than you need and end up losing money in the transaction. With rubbish removal, whether you underestimate or overestimate the amount of debris you have, there is nothing to worry about; the rubbish removal company will haul away whatever you have.

Rubbish removal services will also do all of the work for you. When you use a skip hire you have to physically load all of the debris into the skip but with a rubbish removal company, all of the heavy lifting is done for you. This is ideal if you are not physically able enough to do all or any of the loading yourself.

When you hire a skip you will also get certain restrictions about when you can have the skip on the street, what you can throw away, and when the skip will be cleared away. Depending on what your local governing bodies say, you more than likely will need to obtain skip permits for your skip.

With rubbish removal there is no need to wait for a permit to be approved; you just call the company and have them haul away your debris. You may also have to wait a set period of time to have the skip removed by the waste company; with rubbish removal you can get same day or next day service so you don’t have to put up with an unsightly skip of debris for any longer than necessary.

You will also be told what kind of debris you can put in the skip. For example, you can’t put televisions, refrigerators, and paint in a skip. Rubbish removal companies will take most kinds of waste without a problem.

When to Hire a Skip

While rubbish removal services do come in handy, there may be times when you need to choose a skip over a removal company. Specifically, rubbish removal companies will not take inert waste. This means that if you completed a project and have soil, sand, concrete, drywall, or other materials that won’t decompose through biological or chemical reactions to throw away, a rubbish company won’t take them. In this care you’ll need a skip instead.
