Summer is all about jetting off to someplace hot to top up your tan, days out at the beach and inviting friends and family round for a barbecue – don’t get us wrong. But it’s also the ideal time to tackle some of those jobs that you’ve been putting off doing around your home and garden.
Whilst we’re all guilty of procrastinating and putting DIY projects on the back burner throughout the colder months of the year, the longer you leave it, the worse it gets. Your home and garden deserve some TLC, the more debris and rubbish you leave around, the harder it is to remove it. When this happens you may have no choice but to look into a junk removal service.
The good news is, you can have a skip delivered to your door. And most reputable skip hire firms – like GSH who specialise in skip hire in Liverpool – will deliver it on a date that suits you and come and collect it from your premises at an agreed time.
Here we take a look at just a few summer projects where skip hire can come in handy.
Why hire a skip for the summer?
1. Garden maintenance
Whether you’ve got old or rotting decking that needs replacing or you’re thinking about having new fencing, you’re bound to have a lot of wood to dispose of. Though you could break the wood into smaller pieces and bundle it into your car – ready to drive to the tip – hiring a skip will make things a whole lot easier for you.
The chances are that the grass will need trimming, trees will need cutting back, weeds will need pulling out, and rose bushes will need pruning. Depending on the size of your garden, you should have sufficient space in your garden waste bin. But skip hire can come in handy for those larger projects where you expect to have large, cumbersome materials that won’t fit in the wheelie bin.
2. Home renovations and DIY projects
Been dying to have a new bathroom or kitchen? Believe it or not, even the smallest of renovations can produce a significant amount of rubble.
If you’re undertaking major home improvements this summer, you’re sure to be left with a lot more rubbish and need to make tireless trips to the recycling centre. Transporting waste to the tip in your vehicle will make a mess of the interior, and short journeys often use more fuel. Therefore, domestic skip hire is the obvious solution for DIY jobs and renovations as the skip hire company will do the arduous work for you!
3. Shed, garage and outhouse clear out
For most people, the garden shed is a place to keep expensive tools and equipment. However, it seems that sheds, garages and outhouses are being used to stow all manner of items these days – including things that might come in handy one day.
However, as the temperatures improve, now is your perfect opportunity to have a good sort through your outbuildings. Remove everything for a thorough clean and, before you put it all back, decide what you need to keep and what you can get rid of. Having a skip placed on your driveway will enable you to throw out what you no longer need. But there are some limitations on what you can and can’t put in a skip, so it’s probably best you call ahead and double-check to avoid being handed a hefty fine for not complying with stringent regulations.
