Bonus tip: Know the skip size that you need so you don't overpay for unnecessary space. Skip sizes are measured in cubic yard, from 2 yard to 35 yard. Think of each yard as a bin bag filled to the max with waste.
If you think you'd need 20 full bin bags, filled with waste then:
20/10 = 2 yard would be the perfect skip size for you. This is also the minimum skip size available in the market. If you think you need 40 full bin bags to accommodate the waste, then:
40/10 = 4 yard It's really that simple.
Always get a second opinion. The market is very competitive and you're sure to save extra bucks by making that extra call.
