Every so often, whether we are moving house or having a huge clear out, we need to hire a skip. So once you have found a local skip rental company such as Swansea skip hire company http://pendragonskiphire.co.uk/swansea-skip-hire/ you can arrange for when and how long you will have your skip for – that is the easy bit sorted! Here is how to make the most of your skip….

Before your skip arrives, start to sort through everything that you want to get rid of. This may be a mixture of things, from old furniture to garden waste. If you can get everything into one place, even better as that will make life much easier for you.

Once the skip has arrived, it is time to fill it. You will have discussed with the company what you are getting rid of, so the skip that arrives should be the right size for you. After all you want to fill it to capacity, otherwise you are paying for the removal of nothing!

Filling the skip well is an essential part of making the most of it. Start with larger bulky items like furniture. If you can dismantle some of this so that it lies flat that is even better, as that will allow you to get much more into the skip.

Once you have dismantled everything you can and put it in the skip, start filling with smaller items – don’t just throw them in try to pack them as tightly as possible.

Last of all, loose debris and garden waste such as leaves, and grass clipping can go in at the end as they will be easier to fit around the items already in the skip. All you have to do then is sit back and wait for it to be removed!
