Most construction sites or home renovation jobs end up with a considerable amount of rubble lying around, and removal companies on their own won’t always be able to remove it if they do not have the right equipment. Most removals hire companies only have vans or trucks, but for large amounts of rubble, skip hire in Solihull is a safer bet to ensure that you do not leave anything lying around once you start cleaning up.
What is Skip Hire?
A skip is a large open lid container mainly used for rubble removal and looks similar to a large dumpster. The skip you will need to use will depend on the amount of excess you need to have removed, so you must assess the exact amount you have or be liable for the cost despite the size.
What can you not hire a skip for?
The first thing to remember about hiring a skip is that even if it is a metal container, you cannot put any hazardous materials in there for removal. Anything that is considered hazardous waste will need to be removed by a particular waste removal company that deals with that specific kind of waste.

If you do end up using the skip to remove anything that is meant to go in there, you’ll be charged because it is considered a criminal offence. This includes medical waste and asbestos. Electrical appliances are also not allowed to be put into a skip for removal. Anything that works with either a battery or a plug is considered a no go.
Consider recycling or donating some of your waste before you hire a skip for removal. It will not only save you time and space, but it will save you money. You might fork our unnecessary costs if you are uncertain about what size skip you ill need to hire.
Break apart any structures, large boxes or furniture to not waste any of space in the skip.
