Skip Hire Meikle Strath Aberdeenshire

Skip Hire Meikle Strath Aberdeenshire: If you're thinking about tidying up your garden, some home improvements, fitting a new kitchen or clearing out your attic, there is a pretty good possibility that you're going to be generating a considerable amount of rubbish that's going to need to be disposed of. Now, you can put a fair amount of it in your car and take it to the nearest tip in Meikle Strath, but this can take time, will probably damage or mess up your car, and is restricted to what you can fit into the boot. The preferable option for the majority of people in Meikle Strath is to hire a skip, and get all of that horrible junk removed, re-cycled and dumped correctly. Should you decide that this is the best idea for you, then the very first task is to track down a reputable company who offer skip hire in Meikle Strath, and arrange to have a skip brought to your property.

Guide to Skip Hire: As soon as you've found a satisfactory Meikle Strath skip hire provider, there are 3 fundamental points that you'll have to come to a decision on: when do you want the skip, where are you going to site the skip and what size skip will you need?

Skip Hire Meikle Strath Aberdeenshire

Skip Sizes: You will find numerous sizes of skips readily available for rent and most Meikle Strath skip hire providers can provide whichever size you want for your planned waste removal job, and in general this will be a choice between a mini skip (1-2 yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most popular skip which you often see outside homes in Meikle Strath, when they are having refurbishing is the builders skip which can hold a respectable quantity of waste, with no need to overfill it.

The builders skip should be ideal for nearly all garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvement projects and similar types of job. A good example of a task which a builders skip may be appropriate for is if you're having a new kitchen or bathroom fitted and you need to get rid of all the packing from the new units and fittings, the old fittings and units and all of the other trash produced during the process.

Siting the Skip: You're going to need to find a suitable place on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or perhaps a section of lawn which you do not mind causing damage to. If you haven't got a driveway or appropriate place on your property, you may have to site the skip on the street outside it, in which case you're most likely going to have to obtain a licence/permit from the local council. Almost all skip hire companies in Meikle Strath will obtain this licence for you, while some may require that you apply for this yourself. It is far better to use a skip hire company who will get the required permit for you, because they know what is needed, how to obtain it and where to go. Needless to say your best option is to site the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove two or three fencing panels to get it in, as this sidesteps the necessity for licences, permits and all that bother. If you do have to obtain a licence yourself, it is possible to apply for one on the internet. Skips sited on a main highway need to have traffic cones, night lights and reflective markers to warn motorists and other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Reserving Your Skip: Getting your skip booked and delivered at the correct time is also important, because hiring a skip isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Meikle Strath, will only let you hang on to the skip for about 2 weeks, which means you will not want the skip standing unused for a week whilst you are waiting around for the job to start. See if you can time the delivery of your skip to correspond with the starting day of the project or with the day you begin producing rubbish. That way, you're going to get the most use out of the skip and not have the skip hire company harassing you to collect it before you're finished with it. Once the skip is filled and it is ready to be collected, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of 2 days notice since they will need to fit the collection into their busy agenda.

Filling the Skip: When putting rubbish into your skip, you need to take care that you do this properly, try and pack the junk in as neatly as you can. Besides being less dangerous this will also enable you to squeeze more trash into it. Always make sure you only put allowed waste items into the skip as many skip hire firms in Meikle Strath, will not accept certain types of trash such as aerosols, PC monitors, freezers, gas canisters, toxic materials, car tyres, batteries, televisions and plasterboard. Don't over fill the skip because the driver can refuse to take the skip away if he believes it could be hazardous. Skip drivers typically throw a safety net across the top of the skip prior to lifting it up onto the truck, although this is primarily meant to retain lightish items, so make sure nothing large and hazardous is able to topple off skip during transit.

Maybe the most important decision to take when hiring a skip in Meikle Strath, is to be certain that you choose a skip hire company who will dispose of your waste responsibly. You, as the waste source, are liable for its disposal, so if it's fly-tipped a mile down the road, it's your door that council enforcement officers will probably be rapping on with a hefty fine in hand. Skip hire providers in Meikle Strath have to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so confirm that they have one of these and that it is current. Aside from this there is not much regulation or legislation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it is something of a minefield finding one that's responsible and legitimate. If a skip hire company has been conducting business for many years in the Meikle Strath, Aberdeenshire area, it's likely that they'll be a good choice.

This means the cheapest skip hire in Meikle Strath is not always the best.
