Choosing the right sized skip for a home renovation in Bolton

Looking to improve your home rather than move? Home renovations are much easier than property moves and Bolton Skip Hire can help you to get rid of the waste your project generates – offering a hassle-free experience.

When it comes to choosing the right size skip for your home renovation project in Bolton, there are several factors that you need to be mindful of, including:

  • the size of the house
  • the scale of the project
  • the amount of waste you’ll need to dispose of.

Fortunately, the team at Bolton Skips are always on hand to help, so feel free to ask them for guidance. They will be more than willing to take a look at the work you’re undertaking and estimate which skip size you need.

Other factors to consider include:

Weight restrictions

All domestic skips have a weight restriction and it’s an illegal offence to overload them. Bolton Skips make sure their skips are clearly marked with a maximum fill level so you know when to stop filling them with waste.

Prohibited items

Domestic skip hire Bolton is great for renovation projects of all sizes, but not everything can be thrown in the skip.

Things like broken furniture, old clothing, construction materials, garden waste, and so on, are perfect for skips but some are only suitable for lightweight materials, meaning any hardcore, heavy items cannot be stored inside them.

If you’re unsure whether something can go in the skip, there’s no harm in double checking with the team at Bolton Skips.

Duration of project

Depending on the scale of the renovation project, you may need to hire a skip anywhere between a day to a week, and this is no problem for Bolton Skips. They specialise in skip hire Bolton and guarantee a tailored solution, matching your disposal needs perfectly. Be sure to discuss your project requirements further by calling 01204 383 737.

Although you may find yourself spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting a skip size, it’s recommended that you think about where you’re going to place it. Will it be on your driveway? Or on the road?
