The most commonplace skip that you often see outside houses in Farthingstone, when they're having refurbishing is the standard builders skip which will take a considerable quantity of waste, without the need to overfill it or push boards along the sides to make additional room.

The standard builders skip will be just the job almost all garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvements and those kind of jobs. A good illustration of an undertaking that a builders skip may be right for is if you're having a bathroom or kitchen fitted and you will need to get rid of all the unwanted fittings and units, the packing from the new units and fittings and all of the additional waste generated in the work.

A Site for the Skip: You're going to need the perfect position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or perhaps a section of lawn which you don't care about causing damage to.
