Any construction site is going to accumulate a lot of rubble and a lot of rubbish, that when left to stand is going to get in the way of the work that needs to be done. While at the start of the project, having a little rubble here and there is not necessarily the worst thing, there is going to come a time when hiring a skip is going to become a must rather than a maybe.
Skips come in all types of shapes and sizes, which gives the construction project managers a bit more choice when it comes to deciding what skip bin the site will benefit most from having. Being able to choose which size and type of bin will be best, means that even if the construction site is not the biggest, it should still be able to accommodate a skip.
Skips form a part of the plant hire industry, even though they are not necessarily plant hire equipment. When you are searching for a quick and easy solution for your building waste, hiring a skip is both fairly straight forward, and it is also quite affordable, allowing you to accommodate it in your construction budget.
The Right Time to Hire a Skip
The decision to hire a skip is something that should be a part of your initial planning and you can base your hiring decision on the size of your construction project. If you are undertaking a huge construction project, getting a larger skip right from the get go might be best. Keep in mind that depending on who you are hiring your skip from, the service will normally include the collection and dumping of the waste. The time between the skip being delivered and the skip being removed and its contents emptied will vary from one company to the next.
If your construction project is not that big, you could delay hiring a skip until you get to the point where the rubble really becomes a big problem.
The Benefits of Skip Hire
- A Safer and Cleaner Site
When you have a lot of rubble laying around, it will become a hazard for both the construction equipment and the team. Keeping things clean and tidy reduces the risks of an accident happening, while it also just keeps the place looking neat.
- A Faster Clean Up
Instead of letting the rubble pile up, and only waiting for things to be cleaned at the end of the project, continuously clearing away the rubble means that later on, the only thing to be cleaned will be the last of whatever remains.
- An Easy Method of Cleaning
Skips are really easy to fill and they don’t take all that much time to fill, when you make a habit of getting the construction team to do so at the end of each day. Alternative cleaning methods can include the tricky task of loading up dump trucks, which might work for some construction sites but be more difficult for others.
