Should You Hire A SKIP Or Use Professionals?

House Clearance Companies

The daunting task that involves clearing your property in preparation for moving, or simply clearing some space, is usually an entire process itself. Managing the clearing, transportation and disposal could take days to finish. Instead of trying to manage the clearance yourself, you should consider your options. Hiring a SKIP or choosing amongst house clearance companies will most likely save you a lot of time and stress. 

Hiring Professionals 

Professional clearers will eliminate any need for you to get involved. They will handle the entire clearance based on your instructions, whilst also dealing with transportation and disposal duties. 

Professionals are great for all clearance work. Most house clearance companies clear a number of different places and facilities, from commercial offices to homes and gardens that have accumulated an array of unwanted clutter. Professionals arrive on site with the knowledge, experience and manpower. This allows house clearance companies to complete a job in a few hours. They will also likely manage the transportation of the waste in a lorry or truck, handling the disposal of the materials. Costs vary with clearances, primarily depending on the size and difficulty of the clearance.

However, on the other hand you may run into some issues if you choose the wrong clearance company. Some companies may not be legitimate, fly tipping your waste which could lead to fines of up to £2,000.

Hiring A SKIP

Typically SKIPs cost more to hire for a week than professional clearers. SKIP hire is typically used in more construction-based work. Homeowners that have recently had a renovation or extension will lean towards the idea of hiring a SKIP as they need to remove raw building materials from their home. SKIP hire does save you the task of transporting the waste as it is collected after your hire expires.

Although they are useful in certain circumstances, they are expensive. The average sized skip (1.6m x 1.2m x 1.2m) costs around £200 – £250 a week. You also have to add all of the waste yourself which could take some time.
