FAQs

How big is a 4 yard skip?

Generally, 4-yard skips are basically designed for small clean or clear out projects or residential use. If you want to carry out a small renovation task or to clear out your home, you simply can not ignore the disposal of your unwanted waste. You’ll save yourself some time, money and potential accidents by hiring a 4-yard skip that will do the job effectively. We are all aware how time consuming it is making several trips to the local waste disposal centre.

When talking about the size of a 4-yard skip, it runs beyond its capacity. Skips of small sizes can be easily accommodated in not too large spaces which can be in the garden or driveway which saves you the stress and money of having to acquire skip hire permits.

If you’d like to know the the size of a 4 yard skip in metres, we’ve got you fully covered for both imperial and metric! The answer is provided below:

Imperial - Width 4’3, Height 3’2

Metric - Width 1.29m, Height 0.972m

It is, however, important to take note that when hiring a skip the measurement might be a bit tricky. The ‘4 yard’ term implies the capacity of the skip and not the length. The actual length of a 4 yard skip is only 6 feet or 2 yards. As a result, before you hire a skip, there’s the need to be clear as to the measurement you’re looking for. Otherwise, you might end up hiring the wrong skip and having to get another. Not good for your pocket, right? Well, that’s why we’ve provided this answer to help you in the best possible way!

How much is a mini skip?

Are you about to do a small clean or clear out of your home or garden? Or perhaps you’re just interested in hiring a mini skip for other reasons. One thing you might just be worried about is the cost of hiring one. This is very common as there are tight controls over modern waste disposal methods and knowing the cost of a mini skip hire is definitely a step in the right direction. The small skips are best suited to domestic projects such as house or garden cleans or clearances where only a little waste is generated. And as such, knowing the sort of waste you need to be disposed, the mini skip can be very efficient and great value for money. They represent an affordable option to get rid of both waste and rubbish in or around the house. A mini skip can also be utilized as secondary skip for waste or rubbish that needs separate disposal from the other wastes like a plasterboard.

The mini skip hire cost can be very affordable depending on what you need to be disposed. Generally, with a well sorted waste, a mini bin can costs within the range of £150 to £200. Even more so with green waste as these are the most environmentally friendly waste or rubbish to dispose.

However, on the other hand, wastes that are harmful or hazardous to the environment like asbestos requires a special treatment and as such, are generally more expensive to have disposed. By going the extra mile to hire a professionally supplied mini skip, you can be rest assured that your waste will be properly taken care of and constitute no harm to both persons and the environment at large. To avoid spending much more than needed, try to figure out if your rubbish or waste is small enough for a mini skip before hire. Click here to learn more about skip prices.
