Many of us have come to a point where we have so much stuff to get rid of that we need to contact a company like Llanelli skip hire company, pendragon skip hire and have a skip sent to us. Decluttering before moving house, a garden clear-out, or a garage that has basically become a dumping ground are all common reasons for why we might hire a skip.

So, when it comes to the point that we have a skip, we want to get the most out of it – there is definitely a skill when it comes to filling a skip and getting the most out of it. Getting as much into it as possible means that you get as much value from it as possible and also that you don’t have to hire a second skip.

The first thing that you need to do is reduce the size of bulky items if possible. Furniture like wardrobes, desks and chests of drawers can all be dismantled, and the parts are then flat – these can be stacked at the bottom of the skip with all other flat items.

Bulky items that can not be taken apart or flattened are the next thing to go in, things like armchairs and mattresses which cannot really be reduced in size but can be placed on top of the flat items.

The last thing to go in is anything loose – garden debris like branches, sticks and leaves can go in at the end as well as smaller ad hoc things like broken toys for example.
