Skip Hire Dunbar East Lothian: If you are getting ready for replacing your kitchen, decluttering your attic, tidying up your garden or some home improvements, there's a fair possibility that you will be creating a whole lot of waste matter that's going to need to be disposed of. Now, you might be able to put a lot of it in the boot of your car and carry it to the nearest tip in Dunbar, but this takes time, is likely to damage or mess up your car, and will be limited by what will easily fit into the boot. The popular solution for most people in Dunbar is to hire a skip, and get all of that trash lugged away, re-cycled and disposed of in a responsible manner. Should you determine that this is the perfect solution for you, then your initial challenge is to uncover a dependable company who offer skip hire in Dunbar, and book to have a skip brought to your home.

Guide to Skip Hire: Once you have found a satisfactory Dunbar skip hire firm, there are going to be three principal things that you need to consider: where exactly are you going to have the skip sited, what size of skip will you need and when will you want it?

Skip Hire Dunbar East Lothian

Sizes of Skip: There are actually various sizes of skips available for hire and most Dunbar skip hire companies will provide whatever size you require for your waste disposal, and typically it is a choice between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 black bags). The most frequently used skip size that you regularly see outside homes in Dunbar, when they are having refurbishing is the builders skip which is suitable for a good quantity of junk, with no need to overfill it.

The builders skip will be ideal for almost all home improvement projects, garden clearances, attic clearances and similar types of job. A typical illustration of a project that a builders skip may be right for is if you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to get rid of all the old unwanted fittings and units, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all the additional rubbish produced in the process.

A Site for the Skip: You'll need to find a suitable place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is best, or a section of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If you don't have a drive or suitable space on your property, you might have to place the skip on the street bordering it, in which instance you are almost certainly going to have to obtain a permit/licence from the local council. Almost all skip hire companies in Dunbar will get this permit on your behalf, whilst some may ask that you obtain this yourself. It is much better to go with skip hire company who will get the mandatory licence for you, since they know where to apply, how to get it and what's required. Naturally the preferred option is to position the skip on your property, even if you need to temporarily take down two or three fence panels to squeeze it in, because this negates the need for licences, permits and that kind of bother. If you find you have to obtain a licence yourself, it is possible to apply for one on the internet. Skips put on a main road will require traffic cones, reflective markers and night lights to alert motorists and other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you don't take these precautions.

Arranging a Skip: Getting the skip booked and delivered at the correct time is also critical, since skips are not cheap and in general skip hire providers in Dunbar, will only allow you to hang on to the skip for around 2 weeks, so you do not want the skip lying there unused for a few days while you're hanging around waiting for the work to begin. Try to time the arrival of your skip to coincide with the starting time of the job or with the day that you start accumulating rubbish. By doing it that way, you will get the maximum value out of your skip and avoid having the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're ready. When the skip is full up and you are ready to have it collected, try to give the skip hire company at least 2 days notice as they will need to fit the collection into their busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When putting rubbish into your skip, you need to be careful that you do this correctly, endeavor to pack your trash in as neatly as possible. As well as being less hazardous this will allow you to fit more garbage in. Make certain that you only put acceptable waste into your skip as most skip hire companies in Dunbar, won't allow certain sorts of rubbish such as gas canisters, aerosols, batteries, computer monitors, TV's, fridge/freezers, toxic substances, tyres and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip because the driver might refuse to take the skip away if he believes it to be hazardous. Skip drivers will normally toss a safety net across the top of the skip before lifting it onto the wagon, but this is mostly intended to retain light fly-away materials, so make sure that nothing hazardous and heavy can topple off of the skip in transit.

Definitely the most vital course of action when you are hiring a skip in Dunbar, is to make sure that you select a skip hire company who'll get rid of your garbage responsibly. You, being the waste producer, are liable for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped 500 yards down the road, it's your front door that the local authority enforcement officers will doubtless be knocking on with a sizeable fine. Skip hire providers in Dunbar should hold a "waste carriers license", so ensure that they have one of these and that it is current and valid. Aside from this there is hardly any regulation applicable to the skip hire business, therefore it's not always straightforward finding one that is responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire firm has been operating for many years in the Dunbar, East Lothian area, it's most likely that they are going to be a good choice.

Dunbar Skip Hire Prices

Remember that, as with many other services, you can run across cowboys and rogue traders in your area who will gladly take your money, take your junk and take the mick, by fly-tipping it in the nearest Dunbar lay-by. So, do not choose such people, whether or not they are a few quid cheaper than their law-abiding competitors, given it can cost you significantly more in the long run (in the form of council fines!). This could mean that the cheapest skip hire in Dunbar is not guaranteed to be the best.

Skip Hire Prices Dunbar: Of course, as I am certain you will realise, skip hire prices vary based on the size of skip that you want, the area of the UK where you are hiring the skip and the skip firm you choose.
