Skip Bag Hire: Alternative To Skip Hire

What is Skip Bag Hire?

Skip Bags are made from a strong plastic, designed to hold up to 1 tonne of building, garden and DIY waste. A popular alternative to traditional skip hire, skip bags are especially useful for properties with difficult access to a skip loader. Skip bags can often be purchased in high street DIY stores such as B&Q and Wickes, as well as specialist skip bag hire companies (such as HippoBag).

One of the main benefits to skip bag hire, is that you can load the waste in your own time - simply storing the bag until your ready to load it. Then you simply make a call to the skip bag company to make collection (beware the the price you pay for the skip bag does not include collection, and this is normally about another £50, depending on your location).
