Moving House? Hire a Skip!7th June 2016
Moving house: one of life’s most exciting and stressful experiences. With a seemingly insurmountable checklist of jobs and tasks that need completing before you even step foot in your new home, it can be easy to fall victim to a convoluted, drawn-out process that saps all energy and enthusiasm out of you. However, there are a few steps you can take to make the move smoother for all involved, and one of those is the hiring of a skip.
Skips help organisation
While a skip is not exactly the symbol of organisation in itself, often filled with a wide variety of items, utilising one for your unwanted possessions can be incredibly helpful. It is common that a lot of people discover they have much more unwanted household items than they thought, which can result in many piles of junk.With a skip, this is no longer a problem.
Skips are time-saving compared to the tip
If you have bags and bags of things to throw away, then it means taking several trips to the tip to dispose of it all. With a skip, these repeated journeys are eliminated. Not only is this convenient for you, it is also helpful to the environment, and saves you money on fuel costs.
Skips are cost-effective
Using a skip for things that you want to move to your new home can save you money – as it is all housed in one container, it means you won’t need as big a removal truck or van, and you won’t need to keep going back and forth between your old and new homes.
Skip hiring tips
When choosing and using a skip, there are a few things that you should keep in mind in order to make the most out of your choice.
- Ensure that the skip is large enough for your needs – for household and garden waste, a skip measuring 4 cubic yards can hold around 16 bin bags.
- For larger items, from furniture to appliances, you will obviously need a larger skip. A 16 cubic yard skip provides ample space for bulky items. Take a look at our skip sizes guide.
- Always shred any documents that may contain sensitive or valuable information before you dispose of them.
- Ensure that you use the services of a company who are committed to recycling and making the most out of your unwanted items.
