Skip Hire Lochgilphead Argyll and Bute

Skip Sizes: You will find a range of different skip sizes readily available for rent and most Lochgilphead skip hire companies will provide whichever size you prefer for your waste removal, and typically it is a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 black bags). The most popular skip size which you normally see outside homes in Lochgilphead, when they are doing remodeling is the builders skip which will take a decent volume of rubbish, with no need to overfill it or push boards down the sides to make more space.

The builders skip should be just the job most garden clearances, attic clearances, home improvement projects and similar types of job. A great example of a task which a builders skip will be appropriate for is when you are replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to get rid of all the old fittings and units, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all of the additional garbage generated in the work.

Positioning the Skip: You are going to need to find the perfect place on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or maybe a piece of lawn that you do not mind damaging. If you don't have a driveway or appropriate spot on your property, you may have to site the skip on the street bordering your property, in which instance you are most likely going to need to obtain a permit/licence from the local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Lochgilphead will be quite happy to acquire this permit on your behalf, while some might ask that you get this yourself. It is much better to use a skip hire provider who will obtain the necessary permit/licence for you, as they know precisely where to go, what's required and how to obtain it. Naturally your best option is to position the skip somewhere on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove a couple of fencing panels to fit it in, as this sidesteps the need for permits and all that hassle. If you find you have to get a licence yourself, it is quite simple to make an application for one on the internet. Skips positioned on a main road will require reflective markings, safety lamps and traffic cones to alert other road users, and you could be fined as much as £1000 if you do not take such measures.

Arranging a Skip: Getting the skip booked in and delivered at the appropriate time is also crucial, given that hiring a skip isn't cheap and skip hire companies in Lochgilphead, will only allow you to keep hold of the skip for approximately 2 weeks, this means you want to avoid the skip sitting idle for several days while you are waiting for the work to begin. Try to time the arrival of the skip to correspond with the start of your project or otherwise with the day when you begin generating rubbish. By doing this, you'll get the most out of your skip and not have the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're ready. Once the skip is loaded and it's ready to be collected, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of forty eight hours notice because they will need to fit the collection into their busy timetable.

Filling a Skip: When filling up the skip, you should ensure that this is done correctly, endeavor to pack the garbage in as snugly as possible. Apart from being less hazardous this will also enable you to pack more trash in. Be certain you only put acceptable items into your skip as the majority of skip hire firms in Lochgilphead, will not take away certain sorts of waste including aerosols, toxic materials, PC monitors, full paint cans, fridges, televisions, car tyres, gas canisters and plasterboard. Also don't over fill your skip as the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he believes it to be unsafe. Skip drivers will generally throw a safety net over the skip prior to loading it up onto the lorry, but this is mainly to retain lighter fly-away items, therefore make sure nothing hazardous and large is able to tumble from the skip while being transported.

Definitely the most vital decision to take when you're hiring a skip in Lochgilphead, is to be sure that you select a skip hire firm who'll dispose of your garbage responsibly. You, as the waste source, are responsible for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped a mile down the road, it's your front door which local council enforcement officers will doubtless be banging on with a sizeable fine. Skip hire providers in Lochgilphead have to hold a valid "waste carriers license", so make sure they have one of these and that it is bona fide. Aside from this there's hardly any regulation or legislation controlling skip hire businesses, so it's not always straightforward searching for one that's responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire company has been conducting its business for some years in the Lochgilphead, Argyll and Bute area, it's fairly likely that they're going to be a good choice.
