How To Do A House Clearance Effectively

House clearances involve the removal of large amounts of household waste, which is why having a waste container or skip to hand is the perfect way to clear your working space whilst appropriately disposing of the materials.

Before beginning your project, you should plan out exactly how you will dispose of the waste so that recycling is successful, and ensure you have a waste management team ready to collect the waste when needed.

If you are wondering how to do a house clearance and the right equipment needed for the job, Bailey’s Skip Hire offers a range of different skip sizes to help tackle the task. 

How To Choose The Right Skip For Your House Clearance

Having bags of waste lying around when trying to complete a project can not only hinder progress but also safety. This is why our site and house clearance services providing a range of skips is the most suitable way to ensure efficiency.

Depending on the size of your clearance project, you can choose from a wide range of skips for hire, such as:

  • 2 cubic yard mini skip: perfect for DIY or garden projects.
  • 4 cubic yard skip: ideal for small construction jobs.
  • 6 cubic yard skip: known as ‘small builders skip’ for large home renovations or garden clearance. 
  • 8 cubic yard skip: general needs throughout small projects; such as small amounts of mixed aggregates.
  • 12 cubic yard skip: popular for house clearances, light construction jobs, and commercial waste.

Our list extends all the way up to maxi skips such as 40 cubic yards for industrial projects.

If you are worried about the rules surrounding permits, we are able to obtain this for you, taking care of all the legal requirements. 

The Importance Of Using A Skip For House Clearances

Hiring a skip and using a recycling company with a waste carriers licence means you can have peace of mind that all of your waste is being recycled where possible. Our waste carriers will be able to collect materials from your home and clear away your space, meaning wrong disposal or events such as fly tips do not occur. 

Having a skip on the property can also save you money, as you will not run into the hassle of making multiple trips to and from landfills and dumps. Not only will this impact prices but also the stress of taking time out of your day to complete these activities.

How Bailey’s Skip Hire Have Used House Clearances To Fund The Air Ambulance

Throughout our skip hire services, we have also been handing out textiles bags for our customers to fill with old unwanted clothes and shoes. These materials have then been collected along with the skip at the end of a project, for us to transport to charity shops in Northamptonshire supporting The Air Ambulance Services.

With this recycling scheme, we have diverted around 2 tonnes of waste from landfills, in addition to raising over £2000 for the charity.
