Positioning the Skip: You're going to need a suitable place on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is ideal, or maybe a piece of lawn that you do not mind causing damage to. If you haven't got a driveway or appropriate spot on your property, you might need to position the skip on the road outside it, in which instance you are most likely going to need to obtain a permit/licence from the local council. Almost all skip hire companies in Longyester will obtain this permit for you, whilst others may require that you obtain this yourself.

That way, you are going to get the most value from the skip and not have the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're ready. When the skip is filled and you're ready to have it collected, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of forty eight hours notice as they will have to fit it into their no doubt busy schedule.
