A1 Skips’ top 5 tips for hiring a skip in Bolton this summer

Planning an overhaul this summer is a great idea – but you’re going to need somewhere to throw the rubbish your project generates. What better way to get rid of waste than to hire a skip from us, here at A1 Skips?

Queueing at the local tip is nobody’s idea of fun on a summers day, making skip hire in Bolton a must-have.

Here are 5 tips to help you get the most out of our skip hire services:

  1. Plan your project

Planning your project will make it easier for you to work productively which will also speed up your project, allowing you to complete it sooner.

When waste materials are dumped on your driveway, they can cause a trip hazard, but this needn’t be the case. At A1 Skips, we arrange domestic skip hire around what works best for you so you can dispose of items straight away.

  1. Order the right skip

When it comes to skip hire in Bolton, there’s no need to rush your decision. Take your time to think about the scale of your project, as well as:

  • How much waste do you need to get rid of?
  • Do you need to remove large/bulky materials?
  • Can you recycle or donate anything?

The team at A1 is always on hand to help and will be more than willing to guide you in choosing the most suitable skip for your project, so if you’re struggling, call us on 01257 273 284.

  1. Decide where to place the skip

Although we tend to place our domestic skips on driveways, we understand that this isn’t always an option and can leave them on the road in front of your property in Bolton.

We deliver all our skips on the back of our reliable fleets, so please be mindful that there needs to be sufficient space for our fleet drivers to manoeuvre the heavy loading vehicles safely.

  1. Prepare for skip delivery

Before your skip arrives, you need to make sure that you have the required paperwork. If we’re placing your skip on the road, you need to obtain a permit to ensure legal regulations are met. This is something that we can take care of on your behalf but you need to let us know in plenty of time.

Keep your neighbours sweet and inform them that you’re having a skip delivered. They may also be able to help you make space for the loading vehicle (moving their vehicles onto their driveways or around the corner).

  1. Carefully load the skip

Starting with large bulky items at the bottom, and smaller, lighter items towards the top will enable you to get more out of your skip hire in Bolton. The smaller materials can fill empty pockets of air – making sure you utilise all available storage space.

Remember: not everything can go in skips, including hazardous waste, chemicals, asbestos, batteries, tyres, etc. If you’re unsure whether something can be disposed of in this way, don’t hesitate to contact us.

So if you’re looking for skip hire in Bolton, look no further than A1 Skips. We guarantee a flexible service that’s tailored towards your exact needs, making it easier for you to overhaul your property this summer.
