The cost of skip hire in Preston

Tired of making tireless trips to and from the local tip? Whether you’re undertaking a DIY project in Preston or decluttering the office, hiring a skip could make disposal a whole lot easier for you. All you need to do is fill the skip with rubbish, and we’ll take care of the rest. But how much does it cost?

The cost of skip hire Preston depends on various factors, including:

  • Skip size

Here at Adlington Skips, we have a wide range of domestic and commercial skips at our disposal. Although mini skips are the cheapest we provide, they’re also the smallest. If you expect your project to produce more than 40-45 bin bags, you’ll need something bigger than the 2-cubic yard mini skip.

We suggest ordering a skip that’s slightly bigger than you need to prevent overloading it with waste and exceeding weight restrictions. If you’re unsure which skip size you need, get in touch with us and we will assist you in selecting the best one for your project.

  • Location

The cost of skip hire is also influenced by location. Generally, it costs more to hire a skip in London and the Midlands, than it does in the north.

Skip permits can vary in price, depending on the local council. Preston council charges £35 for the permit – which can be added to the overall price of skip hire Preston – eliminating the risk of expensive fines for not complying with stringent regulations.

  • Permits

Our skips can be delivered to your home or work address in Preston. We prefer to place them on driveways, however, we can leave them on the road if you don’t have space.

When skips are left on the road, you will need to obtain a permit from the council to legalise your skip hire Preston. But relax, we can visit the council and acquire the permit on your behalf.

  • Hire period

How long do you need to hire a skip for? The longer you need skip hire, the more you’ll pay.

Be mindful that some companies offer unlimited skip hire which is great if you’re unsure how long it will take to fill the skip. However, this luxury usually comes with a heavy price tag.

If you need to hire the skip for longer than agreed, feel free to call the Adlington Skips team on 01257 474 747. For an extra fee we can extend the hire period – allowing you to continue disposing of rubbish.

  • Restrictions
