Guide to Hiring a Skip: As soon as you have located the ideal Drumfearn skip hire firm, there are 3 main factors that you need to consider: when will you need the skip, where are you going to site it and what size skip will you need?

Skip Hire Drumfearn Highland

Sizes of Skip: You'll find various sizes of skips available for hire and the majority of Drumfearn skip hire providers will provide whatever size you prefer for your upcoming waste removal job, and normally it is a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 black bags). The most familiar skip size which you normally see outside homes in Drumfearn, when they are doing refurbishments is the builders skip which is suitable for a fair quantity of rubbish, with no need to overfill it or push boards or doors along the sides to make more room.

The standard builders skip will be just the job nearly all garden clearances, attic clearances, home improvements and other similar jobs. A decent illustration of an assignment which a builders skip will be right for is when you are replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to dispose of all the old units and fittings, the packing from the new units and fittings and all of the other garbage produced in the work.

A Site for the Skip: You're going to need a suitable position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe a section of lawn which you don't mind causing damage to. If you do not have a driveway or appropriate spot on your property, you may have to place the skip on the street bordering it, in which case you are in all probability going to have to get a permit/licence from your local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Drumfearn will be glad to obtain this licence on your behalf, while some could ask that you apply for this yourself. It is less hassle to use a skip hire firm who will obtain the required licence/permit for you, because they know exactly where to apply, how to obtain it and what's required. Undoubtedly your best solution is to put the skip somewhere on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove one or two fencing panels to fit it in, as this eliminates the need for permits and that sort of aggravation. If you do need to obtain a permit yourself, it is fairly simple to submit an application for one on the web. Skips sited on main roads need to have night lights, traffic cones and reflective markings to alert motorists and other road users, you could be fined up to £1000 if you do not take these precautions.

Booking Your Skip: Getting your skip booked in and delivered to your property at the perfect time is also critical, since hiring a skip is not cheap and generally skip hire companies in Drumfearn, will only allow you to keep the skip for a couple of weeks, which means you don't want your skip lying there unused for a few days while you're waiting for the builders to arrive. Try and time the delivery of the skip to coincide with the start of your job or otherwise with the day you begin generating rubbish. By doing this, you're going to get the maximum use from your skip and reduce the risk of the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up before you are finished with it. Once the skip is fully loaded and you are ready to have it picked up, allow the skip hire company a minimum of two days notice because they will have to slot it into their no doubt busy agenda.

Filling Your Skip: When filling up the skip, you should take care that this is done in the right way, endeavor to pack the garbage in as neatly as you can. Besides being safer this should permit you to cram more rubbish into it. Make sure that you only put allowed items into the skip since most skip hire firms in Drumfearn, won't let you tip certain kinds of waste including aerosols, PC monitors, TV's, gas canisters, car tyres, toxic substances, full paint cans, fridge/freezers and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip because the driver can refuse to take away the skip if he thinks it could be dangerous. Skip drivers will often stretch a safety net across the skip prior to lifting it onto their lorry, though this is mainly meant to retain the lighter items, therefore make sure that nothing large and hazardous is able to fall off skip whilst being transported.

Perhaps the foremost decision to take when you're hiring a skip in Drumfearn, is to ensure that you pick a skip hire firm who will get rid of your waste responsibly.

Apart from this requirement there's almost no regulation or legislation controlling skip hire businesses, so it's something of a minefield tracking down one which is legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire company has been operating for several years in the Drumfearn, Highland area, it is fairly likely that they will be a reasonable choice.
