Choosing The Correct Sized Skip For You

Whether it be the domestic skips Wigan or skips in Chorley, Leyland Skip Hire can assist you to make a calculated decision for which skip is most suitable for your needs.

When choosing a skip, the last thing you want to do is choose the wrong sized skip, so here are 7 of the most important considerations!

Is a skip really necessary?

If you’re undergoing a home renovation or refurbishment, you may want to get rid of your old furnishings. If your furniture is in good condition, why not consider donating it or recycling it? This will work out more cost-effective that hiring a skip!

As an alternative, you could even bring your waste to the landfill site, this is of course if you generate too much waste to fill your wheelie bin but insufficient for a skip. To find out more about our tipping services, click here!

Having said this, we still provide Lostock Hall skip hire for both domestic and commercial projects.


How much are you willing to spend for skip hire in Preston, or any other area for that matter? This is a factor that needs to be carefully considered if you want to receive the best value for money.

When choosing a skip, you should make sure that you can afford it, hiring a larger skip or even a commercial skip may seem expensive initially but it works out more affordable that hiring 2 of our domestic skips!

Size of project.

Think about the size of your project and the length of time you’ll require the skip for. For us, no project is ever too big or too small, we have an array of skips available for you to choose from, so you’re bound to find something suitable!

The size of your project can determine whether you require a domestic or commercial skip. The domestic skips Wigan are ideal for home improvements and refurbishments whereas the commercial skips are ideal for businesses in various industries.

If you hire a skip for shorter periods of time, you will experience the benefit of cheaper skip hire in Preston, Leyland, Chorley and other areas in the North West.

Amount of waste.

Considering how much waste your project will produce is essential for deciding what size skip suits your needs best.

For those with immense waste capacities; you need one of Leyland Skip Hire’s commercial or industrial skips, whereas, if you expect to generate substantially less waste, you may want to take a look at our smaller skips which are available from 2-cubic yards!

Type of waste.

Certain materials aren’t allowed in our skips; therefore, we suggest you get in touch with us if you’re unsure about the materials that can and can’t be disposed of in our skips.

Leyland Skip Hire can help you to dispose of your waste in a way that’s sustainable, ensuring you receive the best service possible. We can help you to avoid any penalties from incorrect waste disposal- ultimately providing you with a cost-efficient service.

Too big.

You don’t want to hire a skip that’s too big because you’ll end up paying more than you need to. A smaller skip may have been better suited to your needs and could have saved you money.

This is why it’s so important you think about the amount of waste your project will produce. You should never underestimate just how accommodating our smaller skips are!

Too small.

If you have too much waste in your skip, we can refuse to take it and may charge you for the removal of excess waste.

Having too much waste inside your skip can make it difficult for our fleets to transport your skip to the recycling centre. The transportation of skips that are heaped will be dangerous, so it’s essential you choose the skip that suits your needs and the requirements of your project perfectly.
