Skip Hire Kenley Greater London

Skip Hire Kenley Greater London: If you happen to be arranging for fitting a new kitchen, some home improvements, tidying your garden or decluttering your loft space, there is a fair chance that you'll be producing plenty of waste matter that is going to have to be disposed of. Now, you might be able to put a fair amount of stuff in your car boot and haul it to the nearest tip in Kenley, but this takes time, will probably damage or mess up your car, and is limited by what you are able to fit into the boot. The popular solution for most folk in Kenley is to hire a skip, and have all that crap removed, recycled and discarded properly. If you decide that this is the perfect solution for you, then the initial challenge is to uncover a responsible company who do skip hire in Kenley, and organize to have a skip delivered to your home.

Skip Hire Explained: When you have located a satisfactory Kenley skip hire provider, there are going to be three key details that you need to decide upon: what size skip will you require, when will you want the skip and where are you going to have the skip sited?

Skip Hire Kenley Greater London

Skip Sizes: You will discover various different sizes of skips available for hire and the majority of Kenley skip hire companies will provide whichever size you need for your planned waste removal, and for most people it's a choice between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 black bags). The most frequently used skip which you regularly see outside houses in Kenley, when they're having refurbishments is the builders skip which can hold a substantial quantity of garbage, with no need to overfill it.

The builders skip will be suitable for the majority of garden clearances, attic clearances, home improvement projects and other similar jobs. A decent example of an undertaking that a builders skip would be perfect for is if you are having a new kitchen or bathroom fitted and you'll want to get rid of all the packaging from the new fittings and units, the old units and fittings and all the other waste produced in the process.

Siting the Skip: You're going to need a suitable position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is ideal, or maybe a section of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If you haven't got a drive or suitable space in your garden, you might have to place the skip on the roadway outside your property, in which instance you are most likely going to have to get a licence/permit from your local authority. Generally, skip hire companies in Kenley will be happy to get this licence for you, whilst some may demand that you obtain this yourself. It is far better to use a skip hire firm which will get the necessary licence for you, as they know what's required, how to get it and where to apply. Undoubtedly your best solution is to position the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove a few fence panels to squeeze it in, because this sidesteps the need for permits and all that bother. If you find you have to obtain a licence yourself, it is possible to make an application for one on the internet. Skips sited on main roads will need safety lamps, reflective markings and traffic cones to warn other road users, you could be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Getting Your Skip Delivered: Getting your skip booked in and delivered at the appropriate time is also critical, given that skip hire is not cheap and in general skip hire companies in Kenley, will only allow you to tie up their skip for around 2 weeks, which means you do not want your skip lying there unused for a week while you are hanging around waiting for the work to start. See if you can time the delivery of the skip to coincide with the start of your project or at least with the day you begin producing rubbish. By doing this, you will get the most value out of your skip and not have the skip hire company hassling you to collect it before you are ready. When the skip is filled up and it's ready to be picked up, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of forty eight hours notice as they will have to slot it into their busy agenda.

Filling Your Skip: When putting rubbish into the skip, you should take care that you do this correctly, see if you can pack your rubbish in as neatly as you can. Besides being safer this will enable you to jam more waste into it. Be sure that you only put allowed waste items into the skip because many skip hire companies in Kenley, won't allow certain types of materials including fridge/freezers, toxic substances, full paint cans, gas canisters, computer monitors, TV's, tyres, aerosols and plasterboard. Also don't over fill your skip because the driver may refuse to take away the skip if he deems it to be unsafe. Skip drivers typically stretch a safety net across the top of the skip before lifting it onto the wagon, but this is primarily to secure lighter fly-away materials, therefore make sure nothing dangerous and heavy can topple off of the skip in transit.

Maybe the most crucial decision to take when you are hiring a skip in Kenley, is to make sure that you pick a skip hire firm who will dispose of your rubbish responsibly. You, being the producer of the waste, are solely responsible for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped 500 metres along the road, it is your door that local authority enforcement officers will no doubt be knocking on with a large penalty fine in hand. Skip hire companies in Kenley must hold a valid "waste carriers license", so ensure that they have one and that it is valid. Apart from this obligation there's no legislation or regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it's not always plain sailing tracking down one which is responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire company has been conducting its business for several years in the Kenley, Greater London area, it's quite likely that they will be a good choice.

Kenley Skip Hire Prices

Keep in mind that, as with other professional services, there are cowboys and rogue traders around who will just take your hard earned money, take your junk and take the mick, by fly-tipping it in the closest Kenley lay-by. So, don't employ such people, whether or not they are several pounds cheaper than their law-abiding competition, as it could certainly cost you a good deal more in the long run (in the shape of local authority fines!). This could mean that the cheapest skip hire in Kenley is not necessarily the best.

Skip Hire Prices Kenley - A Guide: Naturally, as I am sure you will realise, skip hire prices can differ significantly subject to the size of the skip you need, the skip provider you choose and the area of Britain in which you are hiring the skip. As a rough guide a mini (2 yard) skip will cost from around £60 to £120, a midi (4 yard) skip will range in price from about £85 to £200, a builders skip (8 yard) will cost from around £140 to £300.

Hiring a Grabber Truck in Kenley: One alternative to using a skip for your waste removal job is to book a grabber (grab) truck instead, this is a better idea for garden clearances and those kinds of undertakings, as well as a good solution wherever space or access for a skip is restricted.
