While you are filling them, they are only going to get heavier. Businesses have health and safety guidelines they must meet for commercial projects. With domestic jobs however, things are not the same.

Safety tips

Prior to hiring a skip yourself, it would be wise to familiarise yourself with the safety tips below. They will help you plan so that your experience is as safe as possible.


We will begin by talking about safely loading the skip. One thing you should never do is try to carry something that is too bulky or heavy for you. Get help if you are struggling. Make certain you don’t trap your fingers while handling items and getting them in the skip as well. See to it that you place the heavier goods at the bottom and lighter ones on top. This shall keep the skip steady.

The contents

Additionally, passers-by or neighbours might end up putting their own things inside your skip. Don’t allow them to do so. In addition to taking up space, they could be introducing potentially hazardous items. To prevent this issue, cover the skip overnight.
