Skip Hire Ham Somerset

Skip Hire Ham Somerset: If you are preparing for decluttering your loft, replacing your kitchen, sprucing up your garden or doing home improvements, there is a fairly good possibility that you'll be generating quite a lot of waste matter that is going to need to be tipped. Now, you may be able to put a lot of junk in the boot of your car and carry it to a nearby tip in Ham, but this requires time, will probably damage or mess up your car, and it is limited by what you are able to easily fit in the boot. The favoured alternative for most folk in Ham is to hire a skip, and get all of that junk taken away, re-cycled and dumped in a responsible manner. Should you decide that this is the ideal solution for you, then the first job is to locate a responsible company who offer skip hire in Ham, and arrange to get a skip delivered to your property.

Skip Hire Basics: Once you've located a good Ham skip hire company, there will be three key points that you'll need to come to a decision on: where exactly are you going to site the skip, when do you want it and what size of skip do you need?

Skip Sizes: There are actually a lot of different skip sizes available for hire and most Ham skip hire providers can provide whatever size you require for your waste removal task, and for most this is a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (3-4 cubic yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most familiar skip which you usually see outside houses in Ham, when they're doing refurbishments is the standard builders skip which can hold a fair volume of junk, without the need to overfill it or push boards or doors down the sides to make more space.

The standard builders skip will be suitable for almost all home improvements, attic clearances, garden clearances and similar types of job. A decent example of a task that a builders skip would be right for is when you are replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you need to get rid of all the unwanted fittings and units, the packing from the new fittings and units and all of the other waste generated during the process.

Siting the Skip: You will need to have an appropriate position on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is good, or perhaps a section of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If you haven't got a drive or equally appropriate place on your property, you may need to position your skip on the roadway bordering your property, in which instance you are probably going to need to get a licence/permit from the local council. Nearly all skip hire companies in Ham will be happy to obtain this permit for you, while others may ask that you obtain this yourself. It's much better to go with skip hire firm which will get the necessary licence for you, because they know how to obtain it, where to apply and what is needed. Needless to say the best option is to position the skip on your property, even if it is necessary to temporarily take down a couple of fence panels to squeeze it in, because this avoids the requirement of licences, permits and that kind of hassle. If you find you must get a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to submit an application for one on the internet. Skips positioned on a main highway will require safety lights, reflective markers and traffic cones to warn other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Getting Your Skip Delivered: Getting the skip booked and delivered to your property at the correct time is also vital, given that skip hire isn't cheap and generally skip hire providers in Ham, will only allow you to hang on to the skip for about 2 weeks, which means you do not want the skip sitting unused for days on end whilst you are waiting for the job to start. Try and time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the starting day of the job or at least with the day that you begin generating rubbish. By doing it that way, you'll get the maximum use from the skip and not have the skip hire company hassling you to pick it up before you're finished with it. When the skip is fully loaded and it's ready to be picked up, allow the skip hire company at least forty eight hours notice because they will need to slot it into their no doubt busy timetable.

Filling a Skip: When it comes to putting rubbish into the skip, you must take care that you do this properly, endeavor to pack your waste in as tidily as possible. Aside from being safer this will also allow you to get more garbage in. Be certain you only put acceptable waste materials into the skip as the majority of skip hire firms in Ham, will not let you dump certain sorts of materials like PC monitors, toxic materials, gas canisters, aerosols, fridges, car tyres, batteries, TV's and plasterboard. Don't over fill the skip as the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he thinks it is dangerous. Skip drivers will often chuck a safety net across the skip prior to loading it onto the wagon, although this is mostly meant to retain lighter fly-away materials, therefore ensure that nothing hazardous and heavy can topple off of the skip while being transported.

Maybe the most important decision to take when you are hiring a skip in Ham, is to be certain that you pick a skip hire company who'll dispose of your trash responsibly. You, being the waste producer, are liable for its disposal, so if it's fly-tipped a mile along the road, it is your front door that local authority enforcement officers will be rapping on with a huge penalty fine. Skip hire providers in Ham need to hold a "waste carriers license", so confirm that they have one of these and that it is current. Aside from this obligation there's very little regulation or legislation applicable to skip hire businesses, therefore it is something of a minefield searching for one which is responsible and legitimate. If a skip hire company has been conducting its business for several years in the Ham, Somerset area, it's very likely that they will be a reasonable choice.
