Towens Skip Hire Benefits: Why Choose Us?

Time is precious. When clearing out a garden, throwing out waste, renovating a home or business, or moving out completely, many will be desperate to complete the task in as little time as possible.

That’s why at Towens, we offer skip hire across Somerset. Saving time is one of the main benefits of skip-hire, but it isn’t the only one.

This blog will explore a few more of the perks that come with hiring a skip from Towens in detail…

What size skips do Towens have available?

One of the main benefits of hiring a skip from Towens is that you can select the right sized skip for you, meaning you won’t be paying for unwanted space, or sold short.

Our range varies in size from two to forty yards, with options to cover every space in between.

If you’re looking to visualise how these sizes look, we have a selection of images on our website here. If you’re unsure of what suits your needs best, our team of experts will be able to determine the type of skip you need.

A man in high-visibility orange workwear, including a jacket and pants, stands beside a large yellow skip with the text 'TOWENS' printed on it in black. The skip also displays contact numbers and mentions services such as crushing, screening, plant, and transport. The man appears cheerful and confident, leaning casually against the skip with one hand in his pocket, on what seems to be an industrial or construction site.

What materials do our skips dispose of?

If you’re aware of the material you’re looking to dispose of, we have the skip for you, with a few exceptions.

We offer options for general mixed waste, wood, or soil and stone. General mixed waste includes plastic, paper, sand, cardboard, metals, and more materials which can be checked here.

However, it’s worth noting that food waste, electrical appliances, tyres, asbestos, liquids, and batteries aren’t suitable for hired skips of any kind.

Can Towens ‘park’ my skip?

At Towens, we understand that one of the main concerns when hiring out a skip is simply where to put it.

If you want it placed outside your house or business and you’re situated on a public highway, you will need a permit.

However, this process is part of our offering, and we can get permits obtained in 3-5 days, with the cost often lying between £80 and £120.

How quick is skip delivery?

When decluttering, it’s often the case that you don’t realise just the amount of waste materials you have until you’re midway through the job.

If during this reality check you realise things would be much more straightforward with a hired skip, we offer quick delivery and work hard to ideally deliver within 24 hours.

Why hire a skip in the first place?

As mentioned earlier, hiring a skip is a great way to save yourself some valuable time.

Shuttling back and forth to a skip site can be tiring, and use a significant amount of petrol, especially in a heavy car full of waste – particularly given the traffic and number of vehicles on the road in our local towns such as Weston, Bridgwater, and Taunton.

There’s no need to rush either, as at Towens our skips can be hired for two weeks – meaning you won’t need to spend every hour of your weekend attempting to finish the job.

We’re secure and reliable

At Towens, it’s important to us that we prioritise the security and safety of your waste during transit and storage.

To achieve that, we offer both standard and enclosed skip options.

Our standard skips are perfect for general waste disposal, an additional layer of protection, preventing unauthorised access to your skip’s contents.

We make sure your waste isn’t wasted

Towens provides smart and sustainable recycling, with our objective being to recycle or reuse as much waste as possible, cutting down on trips to landfills.

At present, we have four recycling facilities across Somerset where we process soils, aggregates, and construction waste, and we successfully manage to recycle or reuse over 90% of the materials.

We are doing our bit to use less raw materials to help the UK economy function and grow.
