Skip Hire Leatherhead Surrey

Skip Hire Leatherhead Surrey: If you happen to be arranging for having a new kitchen fitted, decluttering your loft space, doing home improvements or tidying your garden, there's a pretty good likelihood that you're gonna be producing a large amount of waste matter which will need to be disposed of. Now, you may be able to put quite a bit of rubbish in your car boot and take it to the closest dump in Leatherhead, but this takes time, may damage or mess up your vehicle, and it is restricted to what you are able to slip into your boot. The popular solution for nearly everybody in Leatherhead is to hire a skip, and get all that unsightly rubbish carted away, recycled and dumped in a responsible manner. Should you determine that this is the perfect solution for you, then your initial task is to identify a reliable company that does skip hire in Leatherhead, and arrange to get a skip dropped at your home.

Skip Hire Guide: Once you've uncovered the right Leatherhead skip hire firm, there are going to be 3 key points that you will have to consider: when will you want it, what size of skip will you need and where exactly are you going to site it?

Skip Sizes: There are going to be a lot of different skip sizes available for rent and most Leatherhead skip hire providers will offer whatever size you need for your upcoming waste removal, and normally this is likely to be a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 black bags). The most common skip that you usually see outside houses in Leatherhead, when they're having improvements is the standard builders skip which will hold a considerable amount of junk, without the need to overfill it.

The standard builders skip should be best for almost all attic clearances, garden clearances, home improvements and those types of jobs. A great example of a project that a builders skip may be ideal for is if you're having a new kitchen or bathroom fitted and you need to get rid of all the old units and fittings, the packing from the new fittings and units and all of the other waste materials produced in the process.

Siting the Skip: You'll need to find a suitable place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or perhaps an area of lawn which you don't care about damaging. If you haven't got a drive or suitable area in your garden, you might have to place the skip on the road bordering your property, in which case you're most likely going to have to get a licence/permit from your local council. Almost all skip hire companies in Leatherhead will obtain this licence on your behalf, while others might demand that you apply for this yourself. It is much better to go with skip hire firm which will obtain the necessary permit for you, since they know exactly how to get it, where to go and what you need. Obviously the preferred solution is to position the skip somewhere on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove one or two fencing panels to squeeze it in, as this eliminates the requirement for permits and all that aggravation. If you do have to obtain a permit yourself, it's quite simple to submit an application for one on the internet. Skips positioned on a main highway will need reflective markers, safety lamps and traffic cones to alert motorists and other road users, and you could be fined up to £1000 if you do not do this.

Reserving a Skip: Getting the skip reserved and delivered at the perfect time is likewise crucial, since skip hire isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Leatherhead, will only let you tie up their skip for a couple of weeks, this means you will not want the skip standing unused for a few days while you are waiting for the work to start. Try and time the delivery of the skip to coincide with the starting time of your job or perhaps with the day that you start producing rubbish. By doing it that way, you're going to get the maximum value from the skip and not have the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up before you're ready. When the skip is filled up and it's ready to be collected, give the skip hire company at least two days notice since they will need to slot it into their busy schedule.

Filling a Skip: When it comes to putting rubbish into your skip, you must ensure that you do this in the right way, try to pack the junk in as neatly as you can. Apart from being safer this will allow you to pack more trash in. Always make sure you only put acceptable waste materials into your skip because many skip hire companies in Leatherhead, won't let you dump certain types of garbage such as computer monitors, freezers, gas canisters, toxic materials, batteries, televisions, aerosols, car tyres and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip as the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he believes it could be unsafe. Skip drivers will generally throw a safety net across the top of the skip before lifting it up onto the lorry, but this is mostly intended to retain the lighter materials, therefore make sure that nothing dangerous and large can slip off skip whilst being transported.

I think most essential course of action when hiring a skip in Leatherhead, is to be sure that you use a skip hire firm who will get rid of your waste responsibly. You, as the source of the waste, are liable for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped 500 metres down the road, it is your front door that council enforcement officers will doubtless be knocking on with a substantial fine. Skip hire providers in Leatherhead must carry a "waste carriers license", so make sure they have one of these and that it is current and valid. Apart from this there's very little regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it's something of a minefield identifying one that is legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire company has been conducting business for some years in the Leatherhead, Surrey area, it's most likely that they are going to be a reasonable choice.

Leatherhead Skip Hire Prices

Bear in mind that, as with other professional services, there are cowboys and rogue traders around who will gleefully take your money, take away your junk and take the mick, by fly-tipping it in the closest Leatherhead lay-by. So, don't employ such people, whether or not they are a few pounds cheaper than their law-abiding competition, given it may cost you a good deal more ultimately (in the form of local council fines!). This means the cheapest skip hire in Leatherhead is not always the best.

Skip Hire Prices Leatherhead: Of course, as I'm sure you'll realise, skip hire prices vary based on the skip provider you choose, the area of the United Kingdom in which you are hiring the skip and the size of the skip that you require. As an approximate guide a mini skip (2 yard) should cost from approximately £60 to £120, a midi skip (4 yard) should range from around £85 to £200, a builders (8 yard) skip will cost from approximately £140 to £300. A permit/licence for standing a skip on a highway will probably cost about £25 (in 2017).
