    What do I need to consider when hiring a skip

    Removal Companies

    Is the limit of hiring a skip dependent on how large the skip is? Are there other factors to consider that may apply?

    "hi, Robert, the most important thing is what are you filling it with and will the skip be big enough for all of your rubbish small skips are about £120 medium about £180, large about £230 if you order wrong and you can't get all your rubbish in it you will need another at extra cost you could compare a skip against a man with a van who would move your rubbish for a one-off price and load it and take it away for you regards Peter"

    "Hi as far as I know you only pay for the skip. The best way is to ask the company that rents these skips and they will tell you exactly. But I think there is a fee just for the size"

    Where you're placing it
    Does it need a road permit
    Size of the skip
    What materials going in the skip
    Does it contain asbestos if so need an asbestos skip
    Then the big question is how many people to load the skip and how much time will be needed"
