Skip Hire Or Man With Van?

Nowadays there are so many alternative options when it comes to disposing your waste. One of the most popular options after traditional skip hire is the Man (or woman) with van. These alternative waste collection services usually advertise themselves as being cheaper than a hiring a skip, but is it all as it seems?

Initially, man with van services can appear to be a cheaper option than skip hire, but there are often several hidden charges that can increase your costs significantly, such as additional fees for extra waste being collected or even certain items. If we look at an example of a smaller waste collection, which would use one of our 2-yard mini skips, the quantity of waste collected by a man and van service in comparison works out to be on average nearly 50% more expensive!

You would also need to ensure that your waste is being removed according to government and local council guidelines. You may have heard of the term fly tipping which is defined as illegally dumping waste on to unlicensed land. You would need to be certain your waste is collected and recycled responsibly at a fully licenced facility. At Evergreen Skip Hire, we can help arrange all the necessary permits and paperwork for your waste collection to save you time and money.

Of course, it is totally understandable if you lack the space for a skip or you simply cannot move waste yourself, then the man and van service can be a good option. However, if you are looking for the most convenient and cost efficient option, with peace of mind that you are using a fully licensed and environmentally responsible service, then skip hire remains the best option for you.
