We’ve continued our expert operations during winter and throughout the current lockdown to ensure that all of our clients have access to the best possible waste disposal opportunities.
So, how is hiring a skip this winter different to doing so at any other time? Here, our waste disposal experts – providing skip hire Bolton, Leyland, Wigan, Preston and many other locations across the North West – will explain.
Tips and Waste Disposal Centres are Busier
Earlier in winter, many businesses – including building firms – tend to push to get their projects completed in time for the Christmas break. This often involves the removal of large amounts of waste.
Following the New Year, it’s the turn of householders to start getting rid of unwanted items in bulk – whether they’re removing festive rubbish and dead Christmas trees or adhering to the old adage “out with the old, in with the new”.
The above can lead to significant queues at tips and other waste disposal sites.
This year, with the introduction of a third national lockdown, a busy tip can be a risky place. Individuals are being asked to avoid trips to waste disposal centres unless they are essential.
This is one reason why arranging skip hire Horwich, Chorley or anywhere else across Greater Manchester and Lancashire – may be an extremely sensible approach in current times.
You Can Save Money with the Right Skip
Saving money is vital for many during the run up to Christmas and the months following the festive season. That’s why it’s more important than ever to be careful about the size of skip you decide to hire.
Many people mistakenly believe that they should aim for a small skip, as hire is “cheaper”, but, in doing this, you may find that the container you choose won’t fit all of the waste that is to be removed.
This could mean that you’ll have to hire a second, or even a third, skip – and costs will add up. Getting a larger skip will make it more likely that you’ll only have to pay once.
If you’re not sure what size of skip you’re likely to need, get in touch with our specialists – who are experienced in providing skip hire across Wigan, Preston and a variety of other areas.
Bad Weather Can Cause Problems
Rain and snow are more common in winter, which means that your skip may fill up with water if you don’t cover it. It can also mean that materials inside – such as soil – can become saturated and may freeze, making the skip heavier.
Try to keep your skip protected with a tarpaulin or similar cover to prevent this.
