Skip Hire Lockington Leicestershire

Skip Hire Lockington Leicestershire: If you happen to be planning on tidying your garden, clearing out your attic, some home improvements or fitting a new kitchen, there is a good possibility that you'll be creating a lot of waste which is going to need to be got rid of. Now, you can put a lot of junk in the boot of your car and take it to a nearby waste tip in Lockington, but this takes time, will likely mess up or damage your vehicle, and is limited by what will easily fit in the boot. The most popular option for the majority of people in Lockington is to hire a skip, and get all that rubbish lugged away, re-cycled and dumped properly. If you determine that this is the perfect solution for you, then the first challenge is to uncover a reputable company which does skip hire in Lockington, and arrange to have a skip delivered to your property.

Guide to Hiring a Skip: When you have uncovered the ideal Lockington skip hire company, there are three primary things that you will have to make up your mind about: when do you want it, what size of skip do you need and where are you going to have the skip sited?

Skip Hire Lockington Leicestershire

Skip Sizes: You will find a number of sizes of skips available for rent and the majority of Lockington skip hire companies can provide whichever size you need for your planned waste removal, and normally it is a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The commonest skip size which you normally see outside houses in Lockington, when they're having remodeling is the standard builders skip into which you can get a respectable quantity of trash, without having to overfill it or push doors or boards down the sides to make more space.

The builders skip will be best for the majority of home improvement projects, loft clearances, garden clearances and other similar jobs. A decent example of a job which a builders skip would be perfect for is if you're replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you'll want to dispose of all the old unwanted units and fittings, the packaging from the new units and fittings and all of the other rubbish generated during the process.

Siting the Skip: You're going to need to find an appropriate position on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or a section of lawn that you do not care about damaging. If there isn't a driveway or suitable area in your garden, you might need to site the skip on the street outside your property, in which case you're probably going to have to obtain a permit from your local authority. Most skip hire companies in Lockington will be prepared to acquire this licence for you, while some may ask that you get this yourself. It is better to go with skip hire company who will get the required licence/permit for you, as they know what is needed, where to apply and how to obtain it. Obviously the best solution is to site the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily take down one or two fence panels to fit it in, because this sidesteps the requirement for licences, permits and all that aggravation. If you do must get a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to make an application for one on the internet. Skips positioned on main roads need to have reflective markers, traffic cones and safety lamps to alert other road users, and you might be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting the skip booked and delivered at the perfect time is also important, given that hiring a skip isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Lockington, will only allow you to tie up their skip for 2 or 3 weeks, so you don't want the skip standing idle for a week while you're waiting for the workmen to start work. See if you can time the delivery of your skip to coincide with the starting time of your job or otherwise with the day you begin generating rubbish. By doing this, you're going to get the maximum value from your skip and reduce the likelihood of the skip hire company hassling you to collect it before you're finished with it. When the skip is filled and it is ready to be picked up, try to give the skip hire company at least 48 hours notice because they will have to slot it into their no doubt busy schedule.

Filling a Skip: When it comes to filling your skip, you need to ensure that you do this in the right way, try and stack your trash in as tidily as possible. Aside from being safer this will allow you to jam more stuff into it. Always make sure you only put allowable waste materials into your skip because many skip hire companies in Lockington, won't take away certain sorts of materials including gas canisters, aerosols, PC monitors, toxic materials, tyres, batteries, televisions, freezers and plasterboard. Don't over fill your skip because the driver may refuse to take the skip away if he thinks it is unsafe. Skip drivers will usually spread a safety net over the skip prior to lifting it onto the wagon, but this is primarily to retain lighter fly-away items, therefore make sure that nothing hazardous and heavy is able to tumble off of the skip during transit.

Perhaps the most essential course of action when you are hiring a skip in Lockington, is to ensure that you select a skip hire company who'll get rid of your waste responsibly. You, as the source of the waste, are accountable for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped half a mile down the road, it is your front door that the local authority enforcement officers will likely be knocking on with a huge penalty fine. Skip hire providers in Lockington have to hold a valid "waste carriers license", so make sure they've got one and that it is valid. Apart from this obligation there's hardly any regulation or legislation applicable to the skip hire business, so it's not always straightforward searching for one that's responsible and legitimate. Usually if a skip hire company has been conducting its business for many years in the Lockington, Leicestershire area, it's fairly likely that they'll be a good choice.

Lockington Skip Hire Prices

Take note that, as with many professional services, you could come across cowboys and rogue traders around who'll just take your hard earned money, take away your rubbish and take liberties, by fly-tipping it in the nearest Lockington lay-by. So, do not choose such people, even when they are several pounds cheaper than their law-abiding counterparts, given it could certainly cost you quite a lot more ultimately (in the form of local council fines!). This means that the cheapest skip hire in Lockington is not necessarily the best.

Skip Hire Prices Lockington: Of course, as I'm sure you'll realize, skip hire prices vary based on the size of skip you want, the skip hire provider that you choose and the area of the country in which you need the skip. As a rough guide a mini skip (2 yard) should range from around £60 to £120, a midi skip (4 yard) will cost from approximately £85 to £200, a builders skip (8 yard) will range in price from around £140 to £300.

It is okay to test those websites out and see what kind of prices they come up with, although normally with price comparison websites you could end up paying out a supplementary fee which is paid to the website itself, so you may not be obtaining the lowest skip hire price possible for the Lockington area. This can however save a bit of time, therefore you'll need to balance out cost and time and choose which you want to save the most.
