If you determine that this is the best idea for you, then the very first challenge is to find a trustworthy company which offers skip hire in Grangetown, and organize to get a skip transported to your home.

Skip Hire Guide: Once you have found a good Grangetown skip hire enterprise, there are going to be three main details that you will have to consider: when do you want it, what size skip do you require and where exactly are you going to site the skip?

Skip Sizes: You can find various skip sizes readily available for rent and most Grangetown skip hire companies will offer whatever size you want for your upcoming waste disposal job, and for most people this is likely to be a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 bin bags). The most commonplace skip size that you often see outside houses in Grangetown, when they are doing improvements is the builders skip which will take a decent volume of rubbish, without the need to overfill it.

The standard builders skip will be best for almost all home improvements, attic clearances, garden clearances and other similar jobs. A good example of an assignment that a builders skip may be suitable for is when you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to get rid of all the packing from the new units and fittings, the unwanted fittings and units and all of the additional trash generated during the work.

Siting the Skip: You are going to need the perfect position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is perfect, or maybe an area of lawn which you do not mind causing damage to. If you don't have a drive or appropriate spot in your garden, you may need to put your skip on the main road outside it, in which case you are most likely going to have to get a licence/permit from your local council. Nearly all skip hire companies in Grangetown will be quite happy to acquire this licence for you, while some may demand that you obtain this yourself. It is much better to use a skip hire firm which will get the mandatory licence for you, since they know what you need, where to apply and how to obtain it. Needless to say your best solution is to site the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if it is necessary to remove a few fence panels to squeeze it in, as this eliminates the requirement of permits and all that hassle. If you do have to obtain a permit yourself, it's possible to apply for one on the web. Skips placed on a main road will need reflective markers, night lights and traffic cones to alert motorists and other road users, you can be fined up to £1000 if you fail to do this.

Getting Your Skip Delivered: Getting your skip booked and delivered at the correct time is likewise crucial, given that skip hire is not cheap and most skip hire companies in Grangetown, will only allow you to hang on to the skip for something like 2 weeks, this means you do not want your skip laying unused for several days whilst you are waiting for the work to start. Try to time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the start of the project or otherwise with the day when you start producing rubbish. By doing this, you're going to get the maximum from the skip and not have the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you're finished with it. Once the skip is fully loaded and you're ready to have it collected, allow the skip hire company at least 2 days notice because they will need to slot the collection into their no doubt busy agenda.

Filling the Skip: When filling your skip, you need to ensure that you do this in the right way, aim to pack your junk in as snugly as you can. Besides being less dangerous this will also allow you to fit more rubbish into it. You should make sure you only put acceptable items into your skip because most skip hire firms in Grangetown, won't let you tip certain types of rubbish including toxic materials, fridge/freezers, tyres, computer monitors, full paint cans, aerosols, TV's, gas canisters and plasterboard. Don't over fill the skip because the driver could refuse to take the skip away if he deems it hazardous. Skip drivers typically toss a safety net over the top of the skip prior to lifting it up onto the truck, although this is mostly meant to secure the lighter materials, so ensure that nothing dangerous and large is able to fall off of the skip in transit.

Maybe the most vital move to make when you're hiring a skip in Grangetown, is to be sure that you choose a skip hire company who will get rid of your waste responsibly. You, being the source of the waste, are liable for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped a mile along the road, it is your door which the council enforcement officers will no doubt be knocking on with a substantial penalty fine. Skip hire firms in Grangetown have to hold a valid "waste carriers license", so confirm that they've got one and that it is bona fide. Apart from this requirement there is very little regulation or legislation applicable to the skip hire business, so it's not always plain sailing tracking down one which is legitimate and responsible. Usually if a skip hire company has been operating for some years in the Grangetown, South Glamorgan area, it is very likely that they are going to be a reasonable choice.
