What Size Skip Do I Need for a House Clearance?
This is one of those questions that you could file with “how long is a piece of string”, such is the variables to consider when choosing a skip size a for a house clearance.
However, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to figure it out, and that’s exactly what we can do for you in this article (or you just simply call us).
It sounds obvious, but the size of skip and how long you need it you will need to book for a house clearance will depend on how much waste and furniture there is that needs removing, as well as the size of your property.
Here are some general guidelines to help you determine the correct size skip for your planned house clearance (book a skip here).
4 cubic yard skip
Our first skip is the smallest size we do and is good for small rubbish removal projects such as a garage or loft clearance. It typically holds up to 4 cubic yards of waste and as you can see from the picture might hold enough to clear a very small property with minimal waste.
6 cubic yard skip
Our next skip size up could be ideal for your house clearance as it can hold furniture items. We will often hire this skip out to customers where it’s a small house clearance job, for a smaller property, perhaps with 2 bedrooms and not all content are being disposed of.
8 cubic yard skip
This is one of our more popular skip hires for house clearances or garden rubbish removals. It will hold 8 cubic yards of waste and suits most house clearances.
12 cubic yard skip
This is the largest skip we book out for house clearances.
Consider a house clearance service instead
Whilst we are more than happy for you to book out skips through us for your house clearance, most people will book our rubbish removal team.
Our team and van (or vans) turn up, remove everything from the house, and take it away for disposal or recycling on the same day. That means no need to guess at a skip size, and you won’t have a full skip outside the property for longer than is needed.
We often donate re-usable furniture to local charities as well. You can read more about our house clearance service here.
