Why is Hiring a Skip Better Than Going to The Tip Yourself?

Hire Skip

When it comes to disposing of waste as a result of a home renovation, building work or garden clearance you’ve got a couple of options. Fill the car and make the trip to the local tip - or hire a skip. At United Junk we’re here to tell you that the second option is the best and here’s why?

Greater volume

While there is a cost to hiring a skip there are many benefits that make it worth the outlay. The first benefit is the volume, skips come in a range of sizes so you will always be able to find one that suits your requirements.

Even the smallest skip can hold large quantities of waste. At United Junk our skips range from 2 cubic yards right up to 8 cubic yards which can hold 75-85 bin bags.


A skip can be delivered straight to your location and many skip hire companies can accommodate a time that suits you. If there is a safe and secure place to deliver it, you can be assured that it will get there on time with as little disruption to you as possible.


Skips are ideal for domestic and general garden waste which means you won’t have to dirty your own vehicle with foul smelling waste that could ruin the upholstery. What you would spend on a skip you could spend on cleaning the inside of your vehicle.

The problem with the tip

If you do decide that going to the tip is the best option, you’ll need to check and plan ahead as times will differ especially on the weekend. The weekend is also the prime time when people tackle those jobs that require the disposal of waste - this can lead to long queues.

Another problem with going to the tip is that you’ll have to separate all the waste into different areas from the back of the car such as non-recyclable, glass, and wood, etc. Having a skip lets you dispose of it all at once, so long as it doesn’t contravene the rules of hiring the skip.

Once the skip is collected the sorting process is done by the skip hire company, so the only manual labour required is loading the skip itself.
