When you are cleaning out your garden or home, a skip is a great way to help. You’ll probably have more than enough waste for the regular collection, whether you’re moving home or doing a spring clean. Sometimes, however, you might not have enough waste to fill up a large skip. Mini skips could be the ideal solution in this situation.
Here’s how a mini-skip can help you save money and be a useful piece of equipment when clearing out.
What Is The Size Of A Mini-skip?
What counts as a “mini” skip? Skips are available in a variety of sizes and shapes, as well as different capacities. Some skips are better suited for heavy waste.
Our largest skip at trailer trash is the 12-yard Skip. This skip is ideal for clearing out commercial or residential properties. The skips can hold approximately 128 wheelbarrows of waste or 120 black bin liner. Our 12-yard skips will not be suitable for heavy construction debris. You’ll be better off choosing an 8-yard skip for dense items. You can find out more in our guide All you need to Know about Skip Hire.
A 2-yard Mini Skip can hold up to two tonnes of soil, rubble or waste. This is equivalent to 28 wheelbarrows. Mini skips are ideal for clearing out a garage, small garden or household.
Mini Skips Can Help You Save Money
Reduce costs by choosing a smaller size
You can see that different sizes of skips are better for different types and amounts of waste.
Mini skips tend to be cheaper than larger skips. It may be tempting to rent a large skip when doing a clean-out to be safe. If you are cleaning up your garden or small house, then a mini-skip hire will be enough. You don’t have to overpay. You can save money by knowing what size skip you need.
Mini skips can also save you fuel. You may need to make many trips to the recycling center or local tip without a skip. The cost of all these car trips will accumulate over time.
You may also damage your vehicle by overloading it with construction materials. This could lead to costly repairs.
Mini skips can be rented to save time, money and your vehicle. You can fill the skip and have it all disposed in one go.
Transport fees are reduced
Transporting the waste from a house clearance can be difficult if you do not drive or own a vehicle. The mini skip is the perfect solution to remove heavy or bulky items without needing to rent a vehicle or arrange individual pickups. Renting vehicles and drivers in order to remove electricals, furniture, and rubble is expensive. With a mini skip you can also collect all your items in one location, saving you the hassle of having to travel and arrange multiple collections.
Don’t risk fines
Fly-tipping is punishable by heavy fines. It can be tempting to hire a sole trader to transport your waste, but it is important that you choose a reputable company. You could be held responsible if they fly-tip or cut corners.
If you pile debris and rubble outside your home, this can also lead to fines. The mini skip allows you to keep all of your waste in one location and shows that you are responsible for it. Mini versions are especially useful if there is not much space at the front.
We also offer a load and go service at trailer trash Hire. This is ideal for properties without a front or back garden. This service is available for any size including mini skips. It offers a quick turn around. Our driver will bring you the skip of your choice, wait 30 minutes for you to load it and then drive off again.
