The cost of skip hire – explained

Planning a huge renovation or clean-up project in Wigan this summer? Why not hire a skip from us, here at Preston Skips, and collect, store and remove waste quickly?

Hiring a skip is a great way to deal with huge amounts of waste and can make the disposal process easier – saving you the stress of transporting waste to the local tip yourself.

Many different factors influence the cost of skip hire in Wigan, and these include:

Types of waste

From household items like carpets, furniture and general waste to construction materials like brick, sand, and gravel, we supply a wide range of domestic skips which can accommodate mixed waste and garden waste.

Hazardous waste items such as:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
  • chemicals
  • electricals
  • flammable liquids
  • fuel
  • medical waste
  • paints
  • solvents

need to be disposed of separately, otherwise, you could be on the receiving end of a hefty fine.

Skip size

Here at Preston Skips, we have an extensive range of skips available for domestic skip hire Wigan – making it easy for you to choose a size that works well for you.

Our skips are priced according to how many bin bags they can hold. The smaller skips tend to fit up to 35 bin bags of rubbish, whilst the larger ones can store more than 80 bin bags.

Like anything else, the cost of skip hire Wigan increases as the size does, making it important that you order the right sized skip. Make sure that there is plenty of space for you to dispose of materials, preventing waste from falling out of the sides.

Project scale

Before you invest in skip hire Wigan, you need to figure out how long you need the skip for. In most cases, a skip is required for anywhere between a few days and a week but if you need the skip for longer, the cost of your rental will be higher.

To keep your costs as low as possible, we advise you collect or pile waste up before the skip arrives to cut down the rental time.
