Skip Hire Birkenhead Merseyside

Skip Hire Birkenhead Merseyside: If you're preparing for sprucing up your garden, some home improvements, having a new kitchen fitted or clearing out your loft, there is a good chance that you'll be generating a lot of garbage which is going to need to be disposed of. Now, you might be able to put quite a bit of it in the back of your car and haul it to the closest dump in Birkenhead, but this requires time, will probably mess up or damage your car, and is limited by what will slip into the boot. The favoured alternative for most individuals in Birkenhead is to hire a skip, and have all of that unsightly junk hauled away, re-cycled and disposed of properly. If you determine that this is the perfect solution for you, then the very first task is to look for a trusted company who do skip hire in Birkenhead, and book to get a skip brought to your property.

Skip Hire Explained: Once you have found a trusted Birkenhead skip hire enterprise, there are going to be three primary details that you'll need to decide on: when will you want it, where are you going to have the skip sited and what size of skip do you need?

Skip Hire Birkenhead Merseyside

Skip Sizes: There are actually quite a few skip sizes available for hire and most Birkenhead skip hire providers will provide whatever size you require for your planned waste removal, and for most people this will be a choice between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 bin bags). The most familiar skip which you normally see outside houses in Birkenhead, when they are doing refurbishments is the standard builders skip which will take a decent quantity of junk, without having to overfill it or stick boards along the sides to get more in.

The builders skip will be suitable for the majority of home improvement projects, garden clearances, attic clearances and those kind of jobs. A great illustration of an undertaking which a builders skip may be suitable for is if you are replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you'll want to get rid of all the old unwanted fittings and units, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all of the other trash generated during the work.

Siting the Skip: You're going to need to have an appropriate position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe a piece of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If you haven't got a driveway or equally appropriate space on your property, you may have to put the skip on the street outside it, in which instance you are most likely going to need to obtain a permit from your local council. Most skip hire companies in Birkenhead will be more than happy to get this permit on your behalf, whilst others might demand that you apply for this yourself. It's far better to use a skip hire company which will get the mandatory permit/licence for you, as they know exactly how to obtain it, where to go and what is needed. Naturally your best solution is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if it is necessary to remove a couple of fencing panels to get it in, because this sidesteps the requirement of permits, licences and all that bother. If you find you need to obtain a permit yourself, it is fairly simple to submit an application for one online. Skips put on a main road need to have traffic cones, reflective markers and night safety lamps to alert motorists and other road users, you can be fined up to £1000 if you don't take these precautions.

Booking Your Skip: Getting the skip reserved and delivered to your property at the appropriate time is also vital, because hiring a skip isn't cheap and in general skip hire companies in Birkenhead, will only allow you to tie up their skip for a week or two, so you don't want the skip sitting idle for several days while you are waiting around for the work to begin. Try to time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the start of the job or at best with the day when you start producing rubbish. By doing it this way, you are going to get the most use out of your skip and reduce the chance of the skip hire company hassling you to collect it before you are finished with it. Once the skip is loaded and it is ready to be picked up, give the skip hire company a minimum of two days notice as they will need to slot it into their busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When it comes to putting rubbish into the skip, you need to take care that you do this in the right way, try and pack your waste in as snugly as possible. As well as being less dangerous this should enable you to squeeze more trash into it. Be certain you only put allowable items into the skip because many skip hire companies in Birkenhead, won't allow certain types of materials like fridges, aerosols, PC monitors, full paint cans, car tyres, TV's, toxic substances, gas canisters and plasterboard. Do not over fill the skip because the driver may refuse to take away the skip if he believes it to be unsafe. Skip drivers usually chuck a safety net across the skip prior to loading it onto their wagon, although this is primarily intended to retain lighter fly-away materials, so make sure that nothing hazardous and heavy is able to slip from the skip while being transported.

I think most essential decision when hiring a skip in Birkenhead, is to be certain that you use a skip hire company who'll dispose of your waste responsibly. You, being the waste source, are responsible for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped 500 yards down the road, it is your door which local council enforcement officers will doubtless be banging on with a hefty penalty fine. Skip hire companies in Birkenhead must hold a valid "waste carriers license", so ensure that they have got one and that it is current. Apart from this requirement there's little or no regulation applicable to the skip hire business, therefore it's not always plain sailing searching for one that's responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire firm has been doing business for many years in the Birkenhead, Merseyside area, it's quite likely that they're going to be a reasonable choice.

Birkenhead Skip Hire Prices

Please note that, as with most services, you may run into cowboys and rogue traders in your area who will gladly take your cash, take your trash and take liberties, by fly-tipping it in the closest Birkenhead lay-by. So, don't hire such individuals, whether or not they're a few pounds cheaper than their law-abiding competitors, given it can cost you a lot more in the long run (in the form of council fines!). This could mean that the cheapest skip hire in Birkenhead isn't always the best.

Skip Hire Prices Birkenhead - A Rough Guide: Of course, as I'm sure you will appreciate, skip hire prices vary based on the area of the UK in which you need the skip, the size of the skip you require and the skip hire provider you choose. As an approximate guide a mini (2 yard) skip will range in price from approximately £60 to £120, a midi skip (4 yard) should range from around £85 to £200, a builders (8 yard) skip will range in price from approximately £140 to £300.

Price Comparison Sites and Skip Hire: On the internet you can see various websites which offer the chance to compare skip hire prices in Birkenhead, Merseyside. It is okay to test such websites out and find out what kind of prices they come up with, although on the whole with price comparison websites you could end up paying out an extra commission which goes to the site itself, and so you might not be getting the best skip hire price possible for the Birkenhead area. This could however help save a bit of time, so you'll need to balance out cost and time and figure out which you need to save the most.
