Should you decide that this is the best idea for you, then your initial task is to look for a trusted company who do skip hire in Milford, and book to get a skip dropped at your home.

Skip Hire Basics: Once you've identified an acceptable Milford skip hire firm, there are three fundamental factors that you will have to come to a decision on: when do you need it, what size of skip do you need and where exactly are you going to site it?

Skip Hire Milford Staffordshire

Skip Sizes: You'll find quite a few sizes of skips readily available for hire and most Milford skip hire companies will offer whatever size you want for your planned waste disposal, and for most this will be a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (3-4 cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 bin bags). The most widespread skip that you often see outside houses in Milford, when they're doing refurbishing is the standard builders skip which will hold a fair amount of junk, without having to overfill it.

The builders skip should be perfect for most home improvements, attic clearances, garden clearances and those kind of jobs. A good example of a project that a builders skip may be ideal for is when you're having a bathroom or kitchen fitted and you will need to dispose of all the unwanted fittings and units, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all of the other waste materials generated in the work.

A Site for the Skip: You will need to have an appropriate place on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe a section of lawn which you don't mind causing damage to. If you don't have a driveway or suitable spot on your property, you might need to put your skip on the roadway bordering it, in which instance you're in all probability going to need to get a permit/licence from your local authority. Nearly all skip hire companies in Milford will be glad to get this permit on your behalf, whilst some may require that you apply for this yourself. It is much better to use a skip hire firm which will obtain the necessary permit/licence for you, since they know what you need, how to obtain it and where to apply. Obviously your best solution is to put the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if you need to take down a couple of fence panels to fit it in, as this negates the need for permits, licences and all that bother. If you need to get a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to make an application for one online. Skips positioned on main roads will need traffic cones, night lights and reflective markings to alert other road users, and you could be fined as much as £1000 if you don't do this.

Booking a Skip: Getting your skip scheduled and delivered at the appropriate time is likewise crucial, given that skip hire is not cheap and most skip hire companies in Milford, will only let you keep hold of the skip for two or three weeks, therefore you will not want the skip sitting idle for a few days while you're waiting for the workmen to arrive on the job. Try to time the arrival of the skip to correspond with the start of your project or at the very least with the day that you begin accumulating rubbish. That way, you will get the most from the skip and reduce the chances of the skip hire company harassing you to collect it before you are ready. Once the skip is loaded and you're ready to have it picked up, give the skip hire company no less than two days notice as they will have to slot it into their busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When putting rubbish into your skip, you should take care that you do this in the right way, try and pack your garbage in as tidily as possible. Besides being less dangerous this should allow you to get more garbage in. Make sure you only put allowed articles into the skip since many skip hire firms in Milford, will not accept certain sorts of materials like full paint cans, computer monitors, tyres, fridge/freezers, aerosols, gas canisters, televisions, toxic materials and plasterboard. Do not over fill the skip because the driver can refuse to take away the skip if he believes it could be hazardous. Skip drivers will usually stretch a safety net across the top of the skip before lifting it up onto the truck, though this is primarily intended to secure light fly-away items, so make sure that nothing large and hazardous is able to fall off of the skip during transit.

Possibly the most crucial move to make when hiring a skip in Milford, is to ensure that you pick a skip hire company who will get rid of your garbage responsibly. You, as the producer of the waste, are accountable for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped 500 yards along the road, it is your door that local council enforcement officers will probably be rapping on with a hefty penalty fine. Skip hire companies in Milford should hold a "waste carriers license", so check that they've got one of these and that it is current and valid. Aside from this obligation there's very little legislation or regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, therefore it's not always straightforward tracking down one that's responsible and legitimate. If a skip hire company has been operating for many years in the Milford, Staffordshire area, it's most likely that they will be a good choice.
