Choosing a skip size does depend on the type of work you have planned. This can also depend on where you are looking to place your skip and how much waste you are looking to dispose.
Larger skip sizes typically offer better value for money as you can fit more rubbish in to them. It is always a good idea to over estimate the skip size you need as it will work out cheaper for you in the long run. Things often don’t always go to plan, and you could end up in a situation where you need to exchange or hire another skip if you end up disposing more waste than anticipated.
Skip sizes are generally measured by the volume of waste which is in cubic yards. If you are not familiar with hiring skips, this can often be mistaken for the length and width of the skip. We have an easy to understand, handy guide on our website which gives you an idea of the skip sizes we offer based on the amount of black bin bags that can be placed inside.
The most common skip sizes are 4 yard and 8 yard skips, also known as builder skips. These sizes are easy for you to access and have a wide range of uses and be used for various projects. They can also be used for heavy waste such as soil or rubble.
