Begin reading

If you have recently invested in hiring a skip, there are a few things that you can do to prepare for the arrival of your waste management solution. Our skip hire in Birmingham, Dudley, Wolverhampton and neighbouring areas across the Midlands, is available to help with any residential and commercial projects.  

Whether you are purchasing a skip for home or construction work, these few points can contribute to a simple and effective experience.

Clear your driveway  

If you are intending to place your skip on your driveway, it can make the process quicker to clear the area prior to your delivery day. This enables a skip hire company to arrive at your address and easily drop off your order without any unnecessary problems or disruption to you or neighbouring parties. It is important to bear in mind the types of skip you have chosen; midi skips, builder’s skips or bulk skips. This enables you to leave a sufficient amount of space on your driveway or construction site for the appropriate size of skip.  

Your location  

Whether you live in a cul-de-sac or operate from a building site in a built-up location, you should advise your skip hire company in order to prevent any issues with the logistics of the skip hire lorries on your delivery date.  

Inform your neighbours  

It can be common courtesy to inform your neighbours about your skip hire and the arrival of a lorry in the coming days. Hiring a skip can sometimes cause slight disruption, for example, if you have narrow roads, they may need to be blocked for a short period of time. Pegasus Skip Hire in Birmingham, Dudley, Wolverhampton and other local areas guarantees to make the process as simple as possible, completing our skip deliveries with a quick and efficient approach.

Knock on your neighbours' doors and give them a polite heads-up, this will avoid any potential conflict and allows individuals to work around you and plan ahead in advance. Keep a sweet relationship with your neighbours and tell them about your intention to hire a skip near me.  

Separate your hazardous waste  

Various types of materials can be loaded into your skip, green waste, furniture, general waste, construction waste and more. However, it is crucial that any hazardous waste is disposed of by a specialist company. When searching for skip hire near me, it is important that you research what you can put in a skip and what each company will take away for you. Separating any hazardous materials is paramount to the safety of yourself and our team at Pegasus Skip Hire.
