Here’s How To Hire The Right Sized Skip

Skips are necessary when you’re planning any project in Adelaide. They are also perfect for daily or weekly use in your Adelaide home or business. However, skips are very tricky to hire because you’re never sure if you’re ordering the correct size.

You could ask the business for assistance, but the hiring company doesn’t know what and how you want to use it at the end of the day. Since you’re the only person aware of how you’ll be using the skip, it’s up to you to determine the size of the bin you’ll order. 

With these tips, you won’t have any issues hiring the right skip size:


People hire skips in Adelaide for various reasons, which directly impact how long they’ll be using them. For example, if you’re hiring a skip for your business to keep one-time waste, you won’t use it for more than two days. 

However, if you’re hiring the bin for waste keeping, you’ll be using it for a long time, limiting the size you’ll hire.

If you need a skip for a long time, you’ll need to go for a bigger size. However, a smaller bin will suffice if you only need it for a short time. There’s no need to hire a bigger bin than you need because you’ll have to worry about where to keep them, especially if it’s a household project. 

Take how long you’ll be needing the bin into consideration, and you’ll get the right size.

Have an Idea About the Skips Size in Adelaide

Some skip hires measure their bins in feet, while some use cubic metres. The sizes can be confusing and hard to grasp if you don’t have something to compare them to. Look at pictures of bins or containers with similar dimensions to what you want to order.

Some skip hires have pictures of their skips on their website, but that may not help because pictures could be deceiving. So instead, contact the skip hire you want to use and ask for more details on their sizes.

Type of Waste and Use

What waste do you want to store in the skip bin? Some trash doesn’t take up much space in a bin, so you may get away with smaller sizes. Household wastes are pretty lightweight and easy to stuff in a bin so that you won’t need anything too big. 

Meanwhile, waste consisting of sand, stone and other things that occupy space and can’t be moved around need a container with enough room. But it also depends on the scale you’ll be handling this waste. 

Let’s take garden waste, for example. Is the green waste you want to dispose of from your household or business? Household green waste can be pretty small and reflect your hire bin size. Household renovation and commercial construction waste will also need different skips.

Knowing what you want to use your skip for makes selecting a size much easier. At Mini Bin, our skip sizes range from 3 to 9 cubic metres; you’ll definitely find something that fits your needs. Still, need help selecting a size?
