Cumbria

Located in North West England, Cumbria is the third major county by area in the country and features a populace of less than 500,000. This offers it a staggeringly low populace density of only 190 people per square mile. Cumbria is bordered by North Yorkshire, County Durham and Northumberland. Cumbria has simply one city, Carlisle, with Barrow-in-Furness slightly behind in population size. In fact, there are only 5 towns with a populace over 20,000 and a lot of the county is non-urban. With a selection of household upgrades necessary for the Cumbria region, be sure just to work with reputable professionals to be certain reassurance and a top quality final result.

How much is it to hire a skip?

If you’re considering a house move, garden work or building project, one of the most common questions that comes to mind is, how much it would cost to hire a skip?

It is widely known that a skip represents one of the best and most affordable ways to get rid of your unwanted rubbish or waste. However, the determination of the cost of a skip hire depends on a number of factors such as your location, the size of the required skip, the skip hire duration as well as the requirement or otherwise of a skip hire permit.

The most significant determinant of a skip hire cost is the size required. The most common skip sizes are 4 and 8 cubic yard and as expected, the larger skips come at more expensive prices than the smaller ones. This is due to the fact that it can contain a larger amount of unwanted waste or rubbish. Generally, the skip hire price includes the delivery, collection and disposal of the waste. The more the waste, the larger the size of skip to be hired, which means a lot more expenses to be made.

Another factor that determines the cost of a skip hire is the duration. The standard duration of a skip hire is 2 weeks (14 days), however, this period can be extended for just a small amount so far a due notice is provided. Location is also another great determinant and that works considering the number of other skip hire companies in the area.

Overall, a small sized skip costs within the range of £90 to £130 per week, whereas a large sized skip of up to 12 yards for the same amount of time jumps up considerably to a range of £250 to £440. Click here to learn more about skip prices.
