Guide to Hiring a Skip: Once you have discovered a satisfactory Hilliard's Cross skip hire enterprise, there will be three important details that you need to decide upon: where are you going to place the skip, when do you want it and what size of skip do you require?

Skip Hire Hilliard's Cross Staffordshire

Sizes of Skip: You can find many different skip sizes available for rent and most Hilliard's Cross skip hire providers can provide whichever size you require for your waste removal, and in most cases it is a choice between a mini skip (1-2 yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most frequently used skip which you usually see outside homes in Hilliard's Cross, when they're doing refurbishments is the builders skip which is suitable for a considerable volume of garbage, without the need to overfill it.

The standard builders skip should be just the job most garden clearances, home improvement projects, loft clearances and those types of jobs. A decent illustration of an assignment that a builders skip may be perfect for is when you're having a bathroom or kitchen fitted and you'll want to get rid of all the unwanted fittings and units, the packing from the new units and fittings and all the additional waste produced during the work.

Where to Site the Skip: You will need to find an appropriate position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe an area of lawn that you do not care about damaging. If you do not have a drive or equally suitable place in your garden, you may need to put your skip on the main road outside it, in which instance you're almost certainly going to need to apply for a permit/licence from the local authority. Nearly all skip hire companies in Hilliard's Cross will be happy to obtain this permit for you, whilst some might demand that you apply for this yourself. It's far better to go with skip hire provider which will get the mandatory licence/permit for you, since they know precisely where to go, how to obtain it and what you need. Obviously your best solution is to put the skip somewhere on your property, even if it is necessary to temporarily take down one or two fence panels to fit it in, because this negates the necessity for licences, permits and all that hassle. If you need to get a licence yourself, it is quite simple to apply for one on the internet. Skips placed on a main highway need to have traffic cones, safety lights and reflective markers to warn motorists and other road users, you may be fined up to £1000 if you don't take such precautions.

Arranging a Skip: Getting your skip booked in and delivered at the correct time is also important, since hiring a skip isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Hilliard's Cross, will only let you tie up their skip for about two weeks, this means you will not want your skip sitting there idle for several days while you're hanging around waiting for the work to start. See if you can time the arrival of your skip to correspond with the starting day of your project or at best with the day you start accumulating rubbish. That way, you're going to get the most use from the skip and not have the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're ready. When the skip is filled up and it's ready to be picked up, allow the skip hire company at least two days notice as they will have to slot the collection into their no doubt busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When it comes to filling up the skip, you should make sure that you do this in the right way, try and pack the garbage in as snugly as possible. As well as being safer this should also enable you to squeeze more stuff in. Make sure you only put allowed items into the skip because most skip hire companies in Hilliard's Cross, won't let you tip certain kinds of garbage like toxic substances, aerosols, TV's, car tyres, PC monitors, fridge/freezers, asbestos, gas canisters and plasterboard. Also don't over fill your skip because the driver might refuse to take away the skip if he thinks it is hazardous. Skip drivers will usually throw a safety net across the skip prior to lifting it up onto their wagon, though this is mainly meant to retain light fly-away items, so ensure that nothing hazardous and heavy can slip off skip in transit.

Perhaps the most crucial course of action when hiring a skip in Hilliard's Cross, is to ensure that you select a skip hire firm who will dispose of your rubbish responsibly. You, being the waste source, are accountable for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped 500 metres down the road, it is your front door that the local authority enforcement officers will be rapping on with a hefty penalty fine in hand. Skip hire companies in Hilliard's Cross must carry a valid "waste carriers license", so confirm that they have one and that it is bona fide. Apart from this requirement there is hardly any regulation or legislation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it's something of a minefield tracking down one that's responsible and legitimate. If a skip hire firm has been conducting business for many years in the Hilliard's Cross, Staffordshire area, it's fairly likely that they will be a reasonable choice.
