ENTREPRENEUR Ed Fanshawe has come up with a novel way of helping construction firms, home improvers, property and other businesses to save time and cash while getting rid of waste in a responsible way.
The Fulwood businessman has set up an online business called SkipTrips – www.SkipTrips.com.
Anyone who wants a skip can enter their requirements and get back competitive quotes from hire companies.
These include what type of skips, how many and when they are needed, types of waste and requirements like waste reporting.
Mr Fanshawe said: “SkipTrips was launched after months of collaboration with construction companies, everyday householders and waste managers up and down the country.
“Simply put, there was no easy way to connect good skip suppliers with customers and vice versa.
“Waste managers found it hard to get in front of customers when they needed to and skip users have no easy way of making an informed decision about their choice of waste manager.
“Streamlining processes and using technology to do this has always been a passion of mine. Sheffield is technologically strong and I’m proud to be launching a national business from my hometown.”
