Skip Hire Oaken Staffordshire

Skip Hire Oaken Staffordshire: If you are preparing for clearing out your attic, replacing your kitchen, tidying up your garden or doing home improvements, there's a fair likelihood that you'll be generating a whole lot of trash which is going to need disposing of. Now, you might be able to put a fair amount of junk in the boot of your car and carry it to the nearest dump in Oaken, but this requires time, is likely to damage or mess up your car, and is restricted to what will fit into your boot. The popular option for most people in Oaken is to hire a skip, and get all of that junk lugged away, recycled and discarded responsibly. If you decide that this is the perfect solution for you, then the very first challenge is to track down a dependable company offering skip hire in Oaken, and book to have a skip transported to your home.

Guide to Hiring a Skip: As soon as you have uncovered a suitable Oaken skip hire company, there are going to be 3 important points that you will want to think about: where are you going to have the skip sited, when do you need the skip and what size skip will you need?

Skip Hire Oaken Staffordshire

Skip Sizes: There are a number of sizes of skips available for rent and most Oaken skip hire providers will offer whichever size you need for your upcoming waste disposal project, and for most people it's a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (3-4 cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most widespread skip size that you often see outside houses in Oaken, when they are doing refurbishments is the standard builders skip into which you can get a good quantity of junk, without the need to overfill it or stick boards or doors along the sides to get more in.

The builders skip should be perfect for almost all attic clearances, garden clearances, home improvements and similar types of job. A decent illustration of an undertaking that a builders skip would be appropriate for is if you are having a new kitchen or bathroom fitted and it is necessary to get rid of all the old fittings and units, the packaging from the new fittings and units and all of the additional rubbish generated in the work.

Positioning the Skip: You are going to need to have a suitable place on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is good, or a section of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If you do not have a driveway or appropriate spot on your property, you may have to put your skip on the street outside your property, in which instance you're most likely going to need to apply for a permit from your local authority. Normally, skip hire companies in Oaken will obtain this licence on your behalf, whilst some could ask that you obtain this yourself. It's far better to use a skip hire provider which will get the necessary licence/permit for you, since they know how to obtain it, where to go and what's required. Needless to say the 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 avoids the requirement for permits, licences and that sort of hassle. If you do need to get a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to make an application for one online. Skips placed on a main highway need to have night lights, reflective markers and traffic cones to alert other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you don't take such precautions.

Booking Your Skip: Getting your skip scheduled and delivered to your property at the perfect time is also vital, since skip hire isn't cheap and in general skip hire companies in Oaken, will only let you hang on to the skip for something like two weeks, this means you do not want your skip sitting idle for a week whilst you're waiting for the workmen to appear. Try to time the delivery of the skip to coincide with the starting day of your project or otherwise with the day when you start generating rubbish. By doing it that way, you are going to get the maximum use from the skip and avoid having the skip hire company hassling you to pick it up before you're finished with it. When the skip is loaded and it is ready to be collected, give the skip hire company at least two days notice since they will have to slot the collection into their busy schedule.

Filling Your Skip: When filling up your skip, you should take care that this is done properly, try to pack your rubbish in as tidily as you can. Apart from being less dangerous this will also enable you to pack more waste in. Be sure that you only put allowable waste items into your skip since many skip hire businesses in Oaken, will not accept certain sorts of waste like batteries, aerosols, PC monitors, TV's, fridge/freezers, tyres, toxic materials, gas canisters and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip as the driver can refuse to take the skip away if he deems it to be hazardous. Skip drivers will generally spread a safety net across the top of the skip before loading it up onto the lorry, though this is mostly meant to secure the lighter materials, so make sure that nothing hazardous and large can topple off skip whilst being transported.

Maybe the most crucial decision when you are hiring a skip in Oaken, is to ensure that you pick a skip hire company who will get rid of your garbage responsibly. You, being the waste source, are accountable for its disposal, so if it's fly-tipped 600 yards down the road, it is your front door which local authority enforcement officers will doubtless be banging on with a large penalty fine in hand. Skip hire providers in Oaken have to carry a "waste carriers license", so make sure they have one of these and that it is current and genuine. Aside from this there's little or no legislation or regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it's something of a minefield finding one that is responsible and legitimate. If a skip hire company has been conducting its business for several years in the Oaken, Staffordshire area, it's fairly likely that they're going to be a reasonable choice.

Oaken Skip Hire Prices

Be aware that, as with most professional services, you can run across cowboys and rogue traders around who'll gleefully take your hard earned money, take your trash and take liberties, by fly-tipping it in the closest Oaken lay-by. So, don't use these people, even when they're a couple of pounds cheaper than their law-abiding competition, as it might possibly cost you considerably more in the end (in the form of local council fines!). This means the cheapest skip hire in Oaken isn't guaranteed to be the best.

Skip Hire Prices Oaken: Of course, as I'm certain you'll appreciate, skip hire prices can vary considerably subject to the area of the United Kingdom where you need the skip, the size of skip you need and the skip company that you use. As a rough guide a mini (2 yard) skip will range in price from around £60 to £120, a midi (4 yard) skip will cost from approximately £85 to £200, a builders (8 yard) skip will cost from approximately £140 to £300.
