Your go-to guide for skip sizes

Are you looking to hire a skip for your DIY project or business? With there being so many skip sizes available to choose from, you may find it difficult to select the best one for your disposal needs, but Lostock Skips can help.

It’s important that you choose the right skip for your skip hire in Bolton, Chorley, Leyland, Preston or Wigan to ensure waste fits inside the skip without spilling out of the sides.

Underestimating the volume of waste your project generates could leave you needing to hire a second skip to accommodate the excess materials, where overestimating will result in you ordering a skip that’s too big – meaning you’ll pay for the extra space you don’t necessarily need.

Here’s a guide to help you select the right size skip:
