Terms and conditions of skip hire

Hiring a skip is a great way to remove waste quickly – saving you the hassle of making tireless trips to and from the local tip. A1 Skips specialise in skip hire Preston and can help you to dispose of rubbish safely, aiming to recycle 90% of all items.

6 things you need to know about hiring a skip:

  1. Skip hire permits

When skips are left on the road overnight, you will need a permit to legalise your skip hire Preston. The team at A1 Skips can arrange the permit on your behalf, along with safety cones, lighting and markings to ensure your skip can be easily seen in the dark.

  1. Access

When A1 Skips deliver domestic skips to properties in Preston, they use large loading vehicles that require sufficient space to manoeuvre safely. Make the fleet drivers job easier by keeping areas clear and removing any potential obstructions.

  1. Safekeeping

After the skip has been delivered, you are held responsible for the skip, the contents inside and cleaning up the debris surrounding the skip. It’s also a good idea to keep it covered to prevent fly-tippers illegally dumping their waste inside and to prevent the skip from becoming damaged. 

  1. Prohibited items

Skips are great for storing waste materials from home renovations, clear-outs and garden projects, however, some items need to be kept separate. To get the most out of your skip hire Preston, keep out:

  • asbestos
  • batteries
  • computers
  • explosives
  • fridges/freezers
  • gas bottles
  • liquids
  • oil
  • paints
  • plasterboard
  • screens
  • solvents
  • syringes
  • TVs
  • tyres
  • wet concrete

If you need to get rid of any of the above, don’t hesitate to contact A1 Skips on 01257 273 284 for a quote.

  1. Overloading

Filling skips to the brim makes it difficult for them to be lifted on to the back of fleets. A1’s skips have a maximum fill level which can be used as a guide – preventing you from overloading them and reducing the need to hire a second skip.

  1. Payment

The cost of skip hire Preston is different from the cost of skip hire in other areas – be it Bolton, Chorley, Leyland or Wigan. The best way to find out how much skip hire costs in your area is to request a quote by emailing your requirements to info@a1-skips.co.uk.
