How to Prepare your Home for a Skip    

04th Jul 2023

Planning to undertake home improvements and you’re not sure where to start? Skip hire is an excellent way to dispose of large amounts of waste from your home, without worrying about where to take it. It’s a cost-effective way to get rid of excess rubbish and with Panda, nothing goes to waste. Everything we collect is recycled, recovered or repurposed sustainably.

Before you order a skip, think of the 4 C’s…and make the most out of skip hire for your home improvements, garage or garden clearouts, and more! 

  1. Consider  

Take some time to consider what kind of materials you’re disposing of and decide what type of skip you’ll need. This will help you to make sure you’re getting the right type of skip for your requirements. Take a look at our Guide to Skip Hire for more information on what materials are suitable for Mini, Midi or Standard skips. 

  1. Choose 

You will also need to choose the right location. Ensure that you have enough space on your driveway for the skip to be placed. Most skips need an off-road parking space that is free from obstruction, and you might need to apply for a permit from your local council if you’re planning to place the skip on the road. 

  1. Check 

Could you take some of the materials to a local recycling centre? Panda operate 18 Civic Amenity Centres nationwide and they’re the perfect place to recycle electronics, green waste, and other recyclable materials such as cardboard and paper. Find a Civic Amenity close to you here

  1. Chuck 

Now that you’ve considered the skip type, chosen the right position and checked what you can put in your skip, it’s time to start chucking!  

Once you’ve used the 4 C’s, it’s time to book your skip! This is a simple process and when you book online you’re guaranteed our most competitive prices. Happy decluttering!
