6 things to know before hiring a skip in Preston

So you’re looking to hire a skip for your first time? Whether it be for your home renovation project or domestic clear out, Chorley Skips can help you to remove waste quickly and easily.

Specialising in domestic skip hire, Chorley Skips offer their services to widespread locations across the northwest – including Preston.

Here’s a guide to help make skip hire in Preston that bit easier:

  1. Skip sizes

The skip size depends on the type of waste you need to throw out and the amount. You’ll also need to think about how much space you have available and where you can leave the skip overnight.

Chorley Skips provide the following domestic skips for projects in Preston:

  • 2-cubic yards
  • 4-cubic yards
  • 8-cubic yards
  • 12-cubic yards
  • 16-cubic yards

Hiring a skip that’s too small won’t do you any favours, you’ll only end up needing to hire a new one. Likewise, hiring a skip that’s too big will mean you pay more than you perhaps need to. But this needn’t be a problem. Chorley Skips guide and advise you to ensure you make the right choice.
