Why am I continually surprised by the expense of hiring the same sized skip?

Now there is a simple answer to that. Essentially, the fee is determined by the size of the skip and your location within the United
Kingdom. Numerous factors influence the cost of skip hire in various towns or regions. This is partly because certain locations generate
more rubbish than others ” the inner-city areas of London, for example, generate more waste than rural villages. This results in more
work for people in the processing business, as well as increased fees for services like skip hire.

Local competitiveness is another significant aspect. The more skip-hiring companies in a region, the higher their costs must be to remain
competitive. Regrettably, this can result in increased expenses for you! Thus, it’s natural that you’d be curious…

What is included in the hire fee for a skip?

When you rent a skip, the rental fee covers the following:

Consider additional skip hire fees.
Whenever you hire a skip, you should first determine whether you require a skip hire permit or parking suspension, even more so if your
budget is limited. If you intend to place your skip on a public road, you will be required to obtain permission from your local municipality.
(They are often available on the local council’s website.)

However, if you have space on your own public land, such as your driveway or front garden, you can avoid this penalty. Additionally, keep
in mind that skip hire permits are only valid for a specified length of time, so double-check this when you obtain them. If you exceed this
time limit, you risk receiving a large fine”another expense you could definitely do without!

By the same token, placing your skip in a parking bay, on double yellow lines, or in a pay-to-park area constitutes placing it in a controlled
parking zone (CPZ). In that situation, you’ll need to pay the local council for an additional parking suspension. We understand that adding
another cost to your skip is never a nice thing, but trust us when we say that the alternatives (most commonly, severe fines) are
significantly worse! As with the skip rental fee, these can range from £15 to £50 depending on your region in the UK. Therefore, it is
prudent to plan for them well in advance, just in case!
