How to Prepare for a Skip Delivery

At Taylors Skip Hire, we strive to make the skip hire process as hassle-free as possible. However, on your end, proper preparation for your skip delivery will also help you avoid any pitfalls. Here are some simple steps to help you prepare for the arrival of your skip:

  1. Choose the Right Skip Size: Before scheduling your skip delivery, determine the appropriate skip size for your project. Assess the amount of waste you need to dispose of and select a skip that can accommodate it comfortably. If you're unsure about the size, don't hesitate to contact our friendly team for expert guidance.
  2. Find the Ideal Location: Select a suitable location on your property where the skip will be placed. Ensure the area is level, stable, and free of obstacles to allow for easy access for the delivery truck. Avoid placing the skip over underground utilities or near low-hanging branches.
  3. Check for Skip Permits and Licenses: Depending on your location and local regulations, you might need a skip permit to place the skip on public property, such as a roadside. If required, obtain the permit in advance to avoid any delays in delivery. You shouldn't require a permit for skip hire on private property - but make sure you have the necessary permits for any building work you're involved in!
  4. Clear the Area: Clear the designated area of any debris, vehicles, or other obstacles that may hinder the delivery process. Make sure there is ample space for our team to position the skip safely.
  5. Notify Neighbours: If the skip delivery might affect access to neighbouring properties or common areas, it's considerate to inform your neighbours in advance. Open communication can help minimise any inconveniences during the delivery process.
  6. Consider Safety Measures: If you have children or pets, take precautions to ensure their safety during the delivery and throughout the skip hire period. Keep them away from the delivery area to prevent accidents.
  7. Plan for Waste Disposal: Organise your waste for easy loading into the skip. Break down larger items when possible and place heavier materials at the bottom of the skip to ensure stable loading.
  8. Schedule Your Delivery: When you're ready, simply contact our team to arrange a suitable date and time for the skip delivery!
