How to choose the right skip for your DIY project

How to choose the right skip for your DIY project

If you’re undertaking DIY work this summer, you’re going to need somewhere to throw unwanted materials. What about domestic skip hire in Chorley?

When carrying out DIY work, you need to make sure that you order a skip that’s big enough. Try and estimate how much waste your project will generate and hire a skip slightly bigger than you need so you don’t end up running out of space and needing to hire a second skip.

Let Chorley Skips help you to choose the right skip for your DIY project.

Small garden projects

With the weather improving, now is the time to start thinking about clearing your garden. Our 2-yard mini skips are surprisingly spacious, making them ideal for projects expected to produce the equivalent of 20 bin bags of rubbish and 4 wheelie bins.

The 2-yard skips should be big enough, but if you’re looking for something a little bigger, why not consider one of our 4-yard midi skips for skip hire in Chorley?

Home renovation projects

Renovating your home is a big deal and you need to think carefully about which domestic skip you need. If you’re clearing more than one room, a bigger skip, like the 4-yard skip, is recommended.

A 4-yard midi skip will provide you with ample space for unwanted furniture, construction waste and other items that cannot be recycled or donated – providing you with the peace of mind that they are stored safely.

Home clearance projects

Decided it’s time to declutter your home and get rid of items you’ve been hoarding for some time? Perhaps you’re moving to a new house and need to pack up your belongings? Skip hire in Chorley is a great way to remove junk and allows you to sort through what you have and what you no longer need.

Skip size is dependent on the size of your home. The 4-yard skip is usually sufficient for smaller properties, whereas larger homes tend to need an 8-yard skip which can accommodate 60-80 bin bags and 16 wheelie bins.

Large garden clearance projects

Here at Chorley Skips, we provide skips for all project scales, so if you’re planning to renovate your garden completely, you’ve come to the right place.

The 8-yard drop door maxi skips are perfect for large bulky items – including garden waste like grass cuttings, trees, shrubs and broken garden furniture. The drop doors make it easier for you to load with waste, saving you from having to lift waste over the sides of the skip and keeping the mess to a minimum.

Full loft conversions

If you’re converting your loft into a new bedroom, you need to get rid of the contents inside the room first. One of the biggest mistakes people make when it comes to loft conversions is underestimating the scale of the project – leaving them with a skip that’s too small.

Our 12-yard open skips are ideal for conversions as they ensure you have enough space to dispose of 100-120 bin bags and 24 wheelie bins. If you need something even bigger still, the 16-yard open skips are the largest domestic skips we provide for skip hire in Chorley and are perfect for lots of lightweight materials.
