Guide to Hiring a Skip: When you've uncovered a suitable Longsdon skip hire firm, there are going to be 3 key things that you need to come to a decision on: when will you need it, where exactly are you going to site it and what size of skip do you require?

Skip Hire Longsdon Staffordshire

Sizes of Skip: There are going to be quite a few skip sizes available for hire and most Longsdon skip hire companies will provide whichever size you prefer for your upcoming waste disposal job, and usually this is a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most widespread skip which you regularly see outside houses in Longsdon, when they're having refurbishments is the builders skip which is suitable for a substantial quantity of trash, without the need to overfill it.

The builders skip should be appropriate for almost all garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvements and those types of jobs. A great example of a project that a builders skip will be perfect for is when you're replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you need to dispose of all the old units and fittings, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all the other waste generated during the work.

Positioning the Skip: You'll need to have a suitable place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is ideal, or an area of lawn which you do not care about causing damage to. If you don't have a driveway or appropriate space on your property, you may have to site the skip on the street bordering it, in which instance you are probably going to need to get a permit from the local authority. Almost all skip hire companies in Longsdon will obtain this licence for you, while some could ask that you apply for this yourself. It's much better to go with skip hire company who'll obtain the mandatory licence/permit for you, as they know how to obtain it, where to apply and what you need. Needless to say the preferred solution is to put the skip somewhere on your property, even if it is necessary to temporarily remove two or three fence panels to fit it in, because this eliminates the necessity for permits, licences and that type of hassle. If you have to get a permit yourself, it's quite simple to apply for one online. Skips placed on main roads will need night safety lights, traffic cones and reflective markings to warn other road users, and you could be fined as much as £1000 if you do not do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting the skip reserved and delivered at the correct time is also vital, because hiring a skip isn't cheap and in general skip hire companies in Longsdon, will only allow you to keep the skip for 2 or 3 weeks, therefore you do not want the skip standing unused for a few days while you are hanging around waiting for the work to start. Try to time the arrival of the skip to coincide with the starting time of the project or at least with the day that you begin producing rubbish. By doing this, you will get the most use out of the skip and reduce the chances of the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you are finished with it. Once the skip is fully loaded and it is ready to be collected, give the skip hire company no less than forty eight hours notice as they will need to slot the collection into their no doubt busy agenda.

Filling a Skip: When it comes to filling the skip, you need to take care that this is done properly, try and stack the rubbish in as neatly as you can.

Also don't over fill your skip as the driver may refuse to take away the skip if he believes it could be hazardous. Skip drivers will generally stretch a safety net across the top of the skip before lifting it onto the wagon, although this is mostly meant to retain lightish materials, so make sure nothing heavy and hazardous is able to topple off of the skip during transit.

Probably the most essential action to take when you're hiring a skip in Longsdon, is to make sure that you choose a skip hire firm who will dispose of your garbage responsibly.
