Skip Hire Folkestone Kent

The alternative to this if you have loads of rubbish is to hire a skip and get all that junk professionally removed, recycled and discarded correctly, so you don't have to worry any further about it. If this is the route you want to take then the first challenge will be to uncover a trustworthy local company offering skip hire in Folkestone, and book to get a skip brought to your home, so you are able to drop all of your waste in there.

Guide to Skip Hire: The next issues to consider should be: where exactly are you going to place the skip, when do you want it and what size skip will you need? And those are all things that you must work out before you finally press ahead and order a skip.

Sizes of Skip: A range of different sizes of skip are available from skip hire firms in Folkestone, and the most popular choices are mini skips (one to two cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), midi skips (3-4 yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skips (six to eight cubic yards/65-85 bin bags), and large skips (12-14 yards/180-210 bin bags). You can ask for advice from the company on which is best for your requirements. If you would like to get a sense of the available skip sizes, take a walk around Folkestone, and most of the time there'll be quite a lot of properties with skips stood outside. The most widespread size that you'll discover will usually be the "builder's" skip, which appears to be the default skip size for general home refurbishments and building projects.

Great for most garden clearances, building projects, home improvements and loft clearances, the traditional builder's skip will be your copper bottomed option.

Siting the Skip: Depending on the layout and size of your property in Folkestone, it might not be all that easy to identify the right spot for your skip. If you have a drive way or spare section of lawn that you could make use of (be alert to damage!), and this is going to be the best state of affairs. You may have to site the skip on the main road which borders your house, if you do not have a drive or suitable garden area. If this is the case you're almost certainly going to have to apply for a licence/permit from the local authority that allows you to do this. You may have to get this yourself, however many Folkestone skip hire firms will be more than happy to acquire this licence for you.

Going with a skip hire firm that will obtain that permit for you is always preferable, since they know where to go, what you need and the quickest way to get one. Naturally the better option is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if you need to temporarily remove a couple of fence panels to get it in, as this sidesteps the requirement for permits and that kind of bother. Fortuitously it's very easy to submit an application for a licence online, if you do must get one on your own. You can be fined as much as a grand if you stand a skip on a main highway with no skip licence and without specific safety precautions such as traffic cones, reflective markers and night lights to warn other road users.

Reserving Your Skip: So that your skip isn't left lying idle for several days whilst you're hanging around waiting for the workmen to start, it is essential to have it delivered to you at the correct time, seeing as skips aren't by any means cheap and Folkestone skip companies only permit you to keep hold of their skips for a modest period of time. If it's at all possible it's better to schedule the skip delivery to coincide with the time you start accumulating rubbish, or at least with the starting day of your project. This will enable you to get the maximum out of the skip before the hire company starts to harrass you to get it collected, before the rubbish generating work is completed. So they are able to fit the collection into their busy schedule, as soon as you've filled the skip up, you should give the hire company a minimum of 48 hrs notice.

Filling up Your Skip: Once your skip is standing on the drive, the next job will be to start filling it up. Now, you are forking out for every bit of space within that skip, therefore you will want to use it to full effect. Try to avoid leaving huge air pockets and spaces and break up furniture items into their component parts where possible, which uses up less of the available space. This can be safer and save you money, since you will ideally be able to fit all of your junk into that one skip, and not need to order a 2nd one.

It's important that you are mindful of exactly what you're putting in your skip, as certain specified products such as full paint cans, PC monitors, fridges, toxic substances, TV's, fluorescent tubes, gas canisters, aerosol cans, plasterboard and tyres aren't usually permitted. Overfilling the skip is also not advisable as the pick-up driver might refuse to take away the skip if he deems it dangerous or unsafe to haul. To stop unsecured and light objects from blowing off the skip, the collection driver will throw a safety net or cover over the load before lifting it onto his lorry.

It is really important to check that the hire company in Folkestone which you use, will dispose of your rubbish in a responsible and lawful way. If your trash is fly-tipped 500 metres from your property, it will be your front door that the local council enforcement officers are going to be knocking on with a large penalty fine, since you are the originator of this rubbish. You will know for certain that any local Folkestone rental company is safe to use if they're able to show that they've got a current "waste carriers licence". There is very little regulation aside from this carriers licence which administers the skip rental sector, so you should be vigilant. If the skip hire company that you're planning on using has been doing business in Folkestone for many years, you can fairly safely presume that they will be okay, if not check!
