Skip Hire Bideford Devon

Most home owners in Bideford opt to hire a skip and have all of that unsightly junk lugged away, re-cycled and discarded responsibly, as it ought to be. If this is the route you decide to take then the initial challenge will be to identify a responsible local company providing skip hire in Bideford, and book to have a skip brought to your home, so you can throw all your junk in there.

Guide to Hiring a Skip: There are three main matters to look at as soon as you've identified the right skip hire firm near Bideford, and the things you should be asking yourself are: where are you going to site it, when will you need the skip and what size of skip will you need?

Sizes of Skip: There are actually various different sizes of skips available for hire and the majority of Bideford skip hire companies can provide whichever size you need for your planned waste removal task, and typically this is a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 bin bags). The commonest skip that you often see outside homes in Bideford, when they're doing improvements is the standard builders skip which will hold a considerable amount of garbage, without having to overfill it or push boards or doors down the sides to make extra room.

The builders skip should be best for nearly all garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvement projects and those kind of jobs. A good illustration of an assignment which a builders skip would be perfect for is when you're replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you'll want to dispose of all the packing from the new fittings and units, the old units and fittings and all the additional waste generated during the work.

Where to Position the Skip: You'll need to find the right place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or an area of lawn which you do not care about damaging. You may need to plonk the skip on the roadway outside your house, if you have not got a private driveway or suitable patch of lawn. If this is the case you're almost certainly going to have to obtain a permit/licence from the local council that allows you to do this. You could have to acquire this yourself, however most Bideford skip hire companies will be glad to acquire this permit on your behalf.

Seeing that they'll know precisely what is required, the best way to obtain it and the right place to go, it is better to order from a skip hire company which will get the necessary licence on your behalf. Avoiding the necessity for a licence by setting it inside the boundaries of your property is clearly the best option, even if you need to take down two or three fence panels to fit it in. On the plus side it is actually very easy to apply for a licence on the internet, if you do need to get one on your own. If you plonk a skip on a main highway without safety measures like reflective markings, safety lights and traffic cones or without a skip permit, you're liable to be fined as much as 1000 pounds.

Booking a Skip: So that the skip is not sitting there unused for a few days while you are waiting around for the builders to appear, it is important to have it brought to you at the right time, because renting skips isn't cheap by any means and Bideford skip companies only allow you to keep their skips for a modest period of time. Try to time the delivery of your skip to coincide with the start of your job or at least with the day that you begin generating rubbish. That way, you will get the most use from your skip and minimize the likelihood of the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up, before you're ready. You ought to give the skip hire company a minimum of a couple of days notification when you've finally filled the skip up and want it to be collected.

Filling up a Skip: The moment your skip is sitting on your drive, the next task is going to be to start filling it up. Now, you're spending money on every yard of space within that skip, so you want to get the maximum use out of it. Try not to leave large air pockets and spaces and dismantle units and furniture into their component parts where possible, which will waste less space. Aside from being less dangerous this will enable you to pack more waste in.

Make certain that you only put acceptable waste into your skip as many skip hire providers in Bideford, won't let you tip certain types of rubbish such as computer monitors, toxic materials, tyres, fridges, televisions, gas canisters, asbestos, aerosols and plasterboard. Overfilling your skip is also not advisable because the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he believes it to be dangerous to carry. A safety net or cover will usually be thrown over the loaded skip by the pick-up driver before lifting it onto his truck. This is mostly meant to retain lighter fly-away items.

It's vitally important to check that the hire service in Bideford that you use, will get shot of your garbage in a responsible and ethical fashion.
