Skip Hire Dundonald South Ayrshire

Skip Hire Dundonald South Ayrshire: If you're getting ready for tidying your garden, some home improvements, fitting a new kitchen or decluttering your loft, there's a fair likelihood that you'll be generating a large amount of garbage that is going to need to be got rid of. Now, you might be able to put a lot of stuff in the boot of your car and carry it to the nearest tip in Dundonald, but this requires time, may damage or mess up your car, and will be limited to what will fit into the boot. The most popular option for most folk in Dundonald is to hire a skip, and have all of that messy rubbish lugged away, recycled and dumped correctly. Should you decide that this is the best idea for you, then the first challenge is to search out a responsible company that offer skip hire in Dundonald, and arrange to get a skip brought to your property.

Skip Hire Basics: Once you have found a responsible Dundonald skip hire company, there are 3 main factors that you will want to think about: when will you need the skip, what size skip do you require and where are you going to site the skip?

Skip Hire Dundonald South Ayrshire

Sizes of Skip: You will discover numerous skip sizes available for rent and most Dundonald skip hire providers can provide whichever size you prefer for your waste removal project, and in general this is likely to be a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (3-4 cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most familiar skip which you often see outside houses in Dundonald, when they're doing refurbishing is the standard builders skip which is suitable for a decent volume of rubbish, without the need to overfill it.

The standard builders skip will be best for nearly all home improvement projects, garden clearances, loft clearances and similar types of job. A decent example of a project that a builders skip would be perfect for is if you are replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you need to get rid of all the old fittings and units, the packing from the new units and fittings and all of the additional garbage generated in the process.

Siting the Skip: You are going to need to have the right position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or a piece of lawn which you don't mind causing damage to. If you don't have a driveway or appropriate spot on your property, you may have to position your skip on the main road bordering your property, in which instance you are probably going to have to get a permit from your local council. Most skip hire companies in Dundonald will be happy to obtain this permit for you, while others may ask that you get this yourself. It's much better to use a skip hire firm who'll get the mandatory permit/licence for you, as they know exactly what you need, where to go and how to obtain it. Obviously the better solution is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if it is necessary to temporarily remove one or two fence panels to get it in, because this eliminates the requirement of permits and all that hassle. If you need to get a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to apply for one on the internet. Skips put on main roads will require traffic cones, reflective markings and night safety lamps to alert motorists and other road users, you could be fined up to £1000 if you do not do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting your skip ordered and delivered at the perfect time is likewise crucial, since hiring a skip isn't cheap and most skip hire providers in Dundonald, will only let you tie up their skip for a week or two, which means you wouldn't want your skip lying there unused for a week while you are waiting for the work to begin. Try and time the arrival of the skip to coincide with the start of your project or perhaps with the day you start producing rubbish. By doing this, you're going to get the most value from your skip and reduce the likelihood of the skip hire company hassling you to collect it before you're ready. When the skip is full up and you're ready to get it collected, give the skip hire company at least two days notice as they will have to slot it into their busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When filling the skip, you should ensure that you do this properly, see if you can stack the trash in as tidily as you can. As well as being less dangerous this will allow you to get more waste into it. Be sure you only put allowable articles into your skip since most skip hire firms in Dundonald, will not let you dump certain types of trash such as gas canisters, aerosols, toxic substances, fridge/freezers, TV's, car tyres, asbestos, PC monitors and plasterboard. Also don't over fill your skip as the driver may refuse to take the skip away if he thinks it is unsafe. Skip drivers will often toss a safety net over the skip prior to loading it onto the truck, but this is mainly to secure the lighter materials, so make certain nothing large and dangerous is able to tumble off of the skip in transit.

Perhaps the foremost decision to take when you are hiring a skip in Dundonald, is to be sure that you select a skip hire firm who will dispose of your rubbish responsibly. You, being the source of the waste, are liable for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped 500 yards down the road, it's your front door that the local council enforcement officers will be knocking on with a hefty fine in hand. Skip hire providers in Dundonald need to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so check that they have got one and that it is current and valid. Aside from this requirement there's little or no legislation or regulation controlling the skip hire business, so it's not always as straightforward as it should be finding one that's responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire company has been doing business for some years in the Dundonald, South Ayrshire area, it's likely that they will be a good choice.
