Sizes of Skip: There are actually quite a few skip sizes readily available for rent and the majority of Lothmore skip hire providers will offer whatever size you want for your planned waste removal, and typically it is a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 black bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 bin bags). The most familiar skip size which you normally see outside houses in Lothmore, when they are doing refurbishing is the builders skip which can hold a good amount of trash, with no need to overfill it or stick doors down the sides to make more space.

The standard builders skip should be just the job almost all garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvement projects and those types of jobs. A good example of a job that a builders skip would be right for is when you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you need to get rid of all the old unwanted units and fittings, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all the additional garbage generated in the process.

Where to Position the Skip: You will need to have the right place on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or maybe a piece of lawn that you don't mind damaging. If there isn't a drive or appropriate area on your property, you might need to place your skip on the main road bordering your property, in which instance you're in all probability going to need to obtain a licence/permit from your local council. Most skip hire companies in Lothmore will be prepared to acquire this licence on your behalf, whilst some might demand that you obtain this yourself. It's better to go with skip hire company who will get the necessary permit/licence for you, as they know precisely what you need, how to get it and where to go. Obviously your best solution is to site the skip somewhere on your property, even if you have to remove one or two fencing panels to squeeze it in, because this negates the necessity for permits, licences and all that aggravation. If you must get a permit yourself, it is quite simple to submit an application for one on the internet. Skips positioned on main roads will need reflective markings, night safety lights and traffic cones to warn other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you don't do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting the skip booked in and delivered to your property at the right time is likewise important, since hiring a skip is not cheap and in general skip hire providers in Lothmore, will only allow you to tie up their skip for two or three weeks, therefore you want to avoid your skip standing there unused for days on end while you are waiting for the workmen to arrive. See if you can time the delivery of your skip to correspond with the starting day of your project or at best with the day that you start accumulating rubbish. By doing it that way, you will get the maximum out of the skip and not have the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you are ready. When the skip is loaded and you're ready to have it picked up, give the skip hire company no less than two days notice since they will need to fit the collection into their no doubt busy agenda.

Skip drivers will often throw a safety net over the top of the skip prior to loading it onto the truck, but this is mostly intended to secure lightish items, so make sure nothing dangerous and large is able to tumble from the skip while being transported.
