Skip Sizes: There are actually various sizes of skips readily available for rent and the majority of Huntly skip hire providers will provide whatever size you prefer for your waste disposal, and typically this will be a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 bin bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The commonest skip that you regularly see outside properties in Huntly, when they're having refurbishments is the builders skip into which you can get a substantial quantity of junk, without the need to overfill it.

The builders skip should be suitable for nearly all garden clearances, home improvement projects, loft clearances and those types of jobs. A great illustration of a job which a builders skip would be perfect for is if you're having a new kitchen or bathroom fitted and you need to dispose of all the packing from the new units and fittings, the unwanted fittings and units and all the other trash produced during the work.

Siting the Skip: You'll need to find the right position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is good, or perhaps a piece of lawn which you do not care about causing damage to. If you haven't got a drive or suitable space in your garden, you might need to place the skip on the road bordering it, in which instance you are most likely going to need to apply for a licence/permit from your local council. Almost all skip hire companies in Huntly will be glad to acquire this permit for you, while others may ask that you obtain this yourself. It is far better to go with skip hire firm who will obtain the mandatory permit for you, because they know exactly where to apply, what is needed and how to obtain it. Obviously the preferred option is to put the skip on your property, even if you need to temporarily take down a couple of fencing panels to squeeze it in, as this negates the requirement of permits, licences and all that bother. If you do have to obtain a licence yourself, it's fairly simple to make an application for one online. Skips sited on a main highway will require traffic cones, night lamps and reflective markings to alert other road users, and you might be fined up to £1000 if you do not do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting your skip booked in and delivered at the correct time is likewise crucial, since skips are not cheap and in general skip hire providers in Huntly, will only allow you to hang on to the skip for something like 2 weeks, which means you want to avoid your skip lying idle for a few days while you're waiting around for the workmen to start work. Try and time the delivery of your skip to coincide with the start of your project or with the day you start accumulating rubbish. That way, you'll get the most value from the skip and avoid having the skip hire company hassling you to pick it up before you are ready. Once the skip is full and you are ready to get it collected, try to give the skip hire company at least two days notice as they will need to fit it into their busy agenda.

Filling Your Skip: When it comes to filling your skip, you need to make sure that you do this properly, aim to pack your rubbish in as neatly as possible.

Also don't over fill the skip because the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he believes it to be unsafe. Skip drivers usually spread a safety net across the top of the skip prior to loading it up onto the lorry, though this is mostly meant to secure lighter fly-away materials, so make certain nothing large and dangerous can topple off skip in transit.

Definitely the most crucial thing to do when you're hiring a skip in Huntly, is to make sure that you select a skip hire firm who will dispose of your waste responsibly.
