Hiring A SKIP Vs Proffesionals For Your Clearance

House Clearance Chichester

Clearing your property is never an easy task, especially if you have to also manage the disposal of unwanted items. Instead of struggling with the time-consuming task yourself, consider your options. Hiring a SKIP is a great way to prevent several trips to and from your council’s recycling and waste disposal centre. You could also hire a removal company West Sussex that will remove anything you no longer need and dispose of the items responsibly. But what option should you choose?

Hiring A Skip – The Pros And Cons

Hiring a SKIP is usually the more expensive choice you can make, typically costing around £200 – £250 a week depending on the size. 

The Pros

SKIP hire allows homeowners to dispose of any waste and clutter without having to leave their homes. This is extremely helpful if you have large amounts of raw materials or general waste that needs disposal. SKIP hire saves you the task of travelling to the council waste disposal site or dump multiple times. If you have recently had a renovation or property alteration that has accumulated large amounts of building materials and debris, SKIPs are the perfect option. 

The Cons

SKIPs are expensive. With the average 1.6m x 1.2m x 1.2m SKIP costing on average around £200 – £250 a week. Along with the price, you also have to manually add the rubbish to the SKIP which can be time consuming and strenuous. You could also get the wrong size SKIP either being too large and only half filling the space, or too small leading you to hire another one.

Hiring Professionals – The Pros And Cons

Hiring professionals on the other hand saves you from all the clearance and disposal work. A removal company West Sussex could help alleviate your stress, whilst freeing up your living space. 

The Pros

Professional companies come equipped with the knowledge, expertise and manpower. The companies will have multiple team members to clear your waste in no time. Along with this, the team will also have suitable transportation available to remove and dispose of the collected items and waste. Maybe you are in need of a house clearance Chichester or one in Hampshire? Clearance companies are usually flexible covering an array of areas throughout the South of England. Costs vary with clearance companies which are mainly dependent on the size of the clearance. Clearance companies such as ourselves at Greenleaf Clearance offer our customers a bespoke quote prior to any work. So you know the costs and time scale before you pay for the service.

The Cons

Sadly, not all clearance companies are legitimate. Some companies will fly-tip your waste after it’s collected which can lead to fines of up to £2,000 without a waste transfer note.
