Skip hire prices vary significantly from business to business, and JBM offers some of the most competitive prices on the market. Yes, picking the right skip hire company is essential for reducing skip hire costs, but you can save quite a bit of money by following these five simple tips.
Select the Right Skip Size for Your Needs
It’s common for people to hire skips way too large for the amount of rubbish that needs to be collected. You definitely don’t want to hire a skip that’s too small either, but you should know that for most home DIY projects and garden clean-ups, a 4-yard skip is often more than enough.
Here are some numbers that can help with your calculations:
- JBM’s 2-yard skip is equivalent to 6.5 wheelie bins of waste.
- Our 3-yard skip is equivalent to 9.5 wheelie bins.
- Our 4-yard skip is equivalent to 13 wheelie bins.
If you’re still not sure which size is the right one for you, give us a call at 033 335 5349, and we’ll help you out.
Share a Skip
Chances are you’re not the only one in your neighbourhood looking to get rid of waste. This is especially true if it’s autumn and you’ve cleaned up your garden as you prepare for winter. Ask around to see if anyone else has rubbish lying about, and see if you can all hire a larger skip together.
Sort Your Items Correctly
Sorting everything appropriately expedites the waste removal process. If you don’t know what you’re throwing away, you’ll end up paying more since different types of waste are disposed of in different ways.
If you’re keeping track of your items, you’ll be able to calculate skip hire costs more accurately, avoiding unnecessary surprises. JBM offers both waste removal and recycling solutions for almost all types of materials, including hazardous waste. Contact us today to learn more about our services.
Donate As Much As You Can
Along with rubbish and waste, people often throw away reusable items, such as clothes, toys, utensils, and even working electronics. While you may no longer need these items, most shelters and charity organisations would be more than glad to have them.
Frequent donations will reduce the size of your waste, saving you money and doing well by the community at the same time. If you own reusable items you no longer need, search online for any NGOs or community shelters near your area.
Keep and Sell Valuable Items
We’re not, of course, referring to items of considerable value—you’re probably not throwing those away. That said, you might be able to make a small profit by selling old furniture and other items that are in relatively good shape.
Be extremely careful, especially when it comes to antique items that may have been sitting around in your house forever. They might not look great now, but depending on the material they’re made of, they could still be worth quite a bit.
