If you’re planning to complete DIY work at your home in Preston this summer, hiring a skip is a great way to get rid of the waste produced. Do you know what size skip you need?
Skips are designed to be spacious and make it easier for you to dispose of large, bulky items which can take up too much space on your driveway and won’t fit in your wheelie bin. They also save you the hassle of transporting waste to the tip yourself which can be tedious and time-consuming to say the least!
Here at Preston Skips, we have many different sized skips available for skip hire in Preston and selecting the right one will make a massive difference in terms of cost.
The cost of domestic skip hire is calculated using your postcode, the size of the skip and the duration of your project, hence why it’s important you think about how much space you need.
Let us help you to make the right choice:
- 2-cubic yard mini skips
The smallest domestic skip we provide for skip hire in Preston is the 2-cubic yard skip. Perfect for small garden and DIY projects, they can hold up to 2 tonnes of waste which is the equivalent to 20 bin bags and 4 wheelie bins and are delivered to your property to ensure a stress-free experience.
- 4-cubic yard midi skips
If you’re planning a small kitchen or bathroom refit, you’re probably looking for something slightly bigger than the mini skip? The 4-cubic yard midi skip offers twice as much storage space for unwanted materials and can also be delivered to your home address, on the back of one of our reliable fleets.
- 6-cubic yard midi skips
When it comes to skip hire in Preston, the 6-cubic yard skip is most popular. Ideal for driveway construction projects and extension builds, the 6-cubic yard skip can hold up to 6 tonnes of materials reliably (or 60 bin bags and 12 wheelie bins), allowing you to keep your premises tidy.
- 8-cubic yard maxi skips
The 8-cubic yard maxi skips are preferred for larger domestic projects. These skips have drop doors and fit up to 8 tonnes of waste – making loading the skip with heavy, awkward items more convenient for you. To put into perspective how much space the 8-yard domestic skips provide, picture 80 bin bags plus an additional 16 wheelie bins.
There are many do’s and don’ts with skip hire in Preston, and you need to be mindful of what you’re throwing inside your skip. Please keep hazardous waste out of skips, as well as asbestos, TVs, fridge freezers and tyres as these require special disposal.
