Skip Hire Alton Hampshire

Skip Hire Alton Hampshire: If you're arranging for tidying up your garden, doing home improvements, decluttering your loft space or fitting a new bathroom, there's a fair possibility that you will be producing loads of waste that's going to need to be got rid of. Now, you can put a lot of rubbish in the boot of your car and carry it to a nearby waste tip in Alton, but this takes time, is likely to damage or mess up your car, and it is limited by what will slip into the boot. The most popular option for most people in Alton is to hire a skip, and have all that rubbish carted away, recycled and disposed of correctly. If you determine that this is the best idea for you, then your first job is to seek out a trusted company which offers skip hire in Alton, and organize to get a skip delivered to your property.

Skip Hire Guide: Once you've identified an acceptable Alton skip hire firm, there will be 3 fundamental things that you'll have to decide upon: where are you going to site it, when will you need it and what size of skip will you need?

Skip Hire Alton Hampshire

Skip Sizes: You will discover quite a few skip sizes available for rent and most Alton skip hire companies can provide whichever size you prefer for your upcoming waste disposal, and typically this is a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The commonest skip size that you normally see outside homes in Alton, when they're having remodeling is the standard builders skip which will take a decent quantity of garbage, without the need to overfill it or shove doors or boards along the sides to get more in.

The standard builders skip should be just the job most garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvement projects and those kind of jobs. A good illustration of an assignment which a builders skip may be perfect for is if you're replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you will need to get rid of all the packing from the new units and fittings, the old units and fittings and all of the other waste materials produced during the process.

Positioning the Skip: You'll need to have the right position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe an area of lawn which you do not mind damaging. If you do not have a driveway or equally appropriate space in your garden, you might need to put your skip on the road outside your property, in which case you're most likely going to need to get a permit from the local authority. Generally, skip hire companies in Alton will be happy to get this permit for you, whilst some might ask that you apply for this yourself. It's better to go with skip hire company who will get the mandatory permit/licence for you, because they know where to go, how to get it and what's required. Needless to say the best option is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if you need to remove a few fence panels to fit it in, because this sidesteps the requirement of permits, licences and that type of hassle. If you find you need to get a licence yourself, it's fairly simple to submit an application for one on the web. Skips sited on a main highway will need reflective markings, traffic cones and night lamps to alert other road users, you might be fined up to £1000 if you don't do this.

Reserving Your Skip: Getting your skip ordered and delivered at the perfect time is likewise crucial, since skip hire isn't cheap and in general skip hire providers in Alton, will only allow you to tie up their skip for a couple of weeks, which means you don't want your skip sitting there idle for a week while you are waiting around for the work to start. See if you can time the arrival of the skip to correspond with the starting day of the project or at the very least with the day you begin generating rubbish. By doing it that way, you are going to get the maximum from the skip and minimize the likelihood of the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're finished with it. Once the skip is fully loaded and it's ready to be collected, give the skip hire company a minimum of two days notice as they will need to slot the collection into their busy agenda.

Filling the Skip: When it comes to filling up your skip, you must take care that this is done correctly, see if you can pack your waste in as neatly as you can. Apart from being less dangerous this should enable you to slot more junk in. Make certain you only put allowable waste materials into your skip because most skip hire businesses in Alton, won't take away certain types of trash such as gas canisters, PC monitors, full paint cans, aerosols, toxic materials, TV's, car tyres, fridges and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip because the driver can refuse to take away the skip if he believes it could be hazardous. Skip drivers will normally stretch a safety net over the skip prior to lifting it up onto the wagon, although this is mostly meant to secure the lighter items, so make certain that nothing heavy and hazardous can topple off of the skip whilst being transported.

I think most important decision when hiring a skip in Alton, is to be certain that you choose a skip hire company who will dispose of your trash responsibly. You, being the waste producer, are responsible for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped 500 metres along the road, it is your door that local council enforcement officers will be rapping on with a large penalty fine. Skip hire companies in Alton have to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so check that they have one of these and that it is current and valid. Aside from this requirement there is no regulation or legislation controlling skip hire businesses, so it is not always as straightforward as it should be tracking down one that is legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire firm has been operating for many years in the Alton, Hampshire area, it's likely that they will be a good choice.

This means that the cheapest skip hire in Alton isn't necessarily the best.
