Londoners often think that they have to hire a skip when they have a large amount of rubbish that needs disposing of.

Enter Junkwize’s Skip Hire Alternative service, which was designed to offer a better, more affordable and convenient service that hiring a skip.
There are issues with skip hire – they have a large carbon footprint, you need a skip permit (costly), you have to do all the heavy lifting, and often they do not take appliance.

Removing your junk should not be a hassle. With typical skip hire, you are required to do all the hard work yourself, like the lifting, organising the skip to be dropped off and then acquiring the license too. Naturally, this is something that people got fed up with, and that’s why we began offer skip hire alternative services in London, freeing London from the high prices, awkward timings and inflexible hours of having a skip. With our service, you should be able to sit back and let other professionals do this sort of tedious manual labour for you. You ought to be aware of some of the difficulties skip hire may give rise to (especially in London). Firstly, you will need to know what size of skip is required and for how long you may need it. Getting this wrong could be a costly mistake if you need a larger skip or overrun your rental period. It may also be inconvenient as you will need to be around when the skip is delivered and again when it is collected, otherwise you may find it parked in your garden or even blocking your driveway.
Secondly, if you plan to leave the skip on a public road you will need a permit from your local council. Every London council has its own application forms and you need to submit these in advance. Thirdly, and perhaps most importantly, when you hire a skip to be parked in the roadway you have the responsibility to make sure that it is safely marked and not causing a traffic hazard. Crucially, you will be responsible for the items you place in the skip and the risk they may cause to anyone choosing to “explore” the contents. Obviously, if you have items that are subject to WEEE regulations this may be a real risk on your part.
You should make sure that you are hiring the skip from a licensed company and that they will use a licensed disposal site. In this instance always insist on a Waste Transfer Note which will confirm that your junk has been disposed of lawfully. Perhaps another consideration in using a skip is that it is often taken as an invitation, by neighbours and passers by, to get rid of their junk. We’ve come across plenty of instances where opportunistic neighbours have used the cover of darkness to dispose of their garden rubbish, for example!
