The most commonplace skip which you regularly see outside houses in Drax, when they are doing remodeling is the standard builders skip which can hold a fair volume of junk, without having to overfill it or push boards or doors down the sides to make more space.

The standard builders skip should be just the job nearly all garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvement projects and those kind of jobs. A great illustration of a job which a builders skip will be suitable for is when you're having a new bathroom or kitchen fitted and it is necessary to get rid of all the old unwanted units and fittings, the packing from the new units and fittings and all the other trash generated in the work.

Positioning the Skip: You're going to need to have the perfect position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe a section of lawn that you don't mind causing damage to. If you haven't got a drive or suitable area on your property, you might need to position the skip on the roadway bordering your property, in which case you're most likely going to need to apply for a licence/permit from your local authority. Nearly all skip hire companies in Drax will be quite happy to get this permit for you, while some may ask that you apply for this yourself. It's much better to go with skip hire firm who'll obtain the required permit for you, as they know where to apply, how to get it and what you need.

If you find you need to get a licence yourself, it's fairly simple to apply for one on the web. Skips placed on main roads will require traffic cones, reflective markings and night lamps to warn motorists and other road users, and you could be fined up to £1000 if you don't do this.

Reserving Your Skip: Getting the skip scheduled and delivered at the appropriate time is likewise crucial, since skip hire isn't cheap and most skip hire companies in Drax, will only let you keep hold of the skip for something like two weeks, so you wouldn't want your skip sitting idle for a week while you're hanging around waiting for the job to start.

By doing this, you'll get the maximum use from your skip and minimize the chances of the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you're ready. Once the skip is full up and it is ready to be collected, give the skip hire company at least 48 hours notice since they will have to fit it into their no doubt busy timetable.
