Skip Hire Oakham Rutland

Skip Hire Oakham Rutland: If you are arranging for fitting a new bathroom, doing home improvements, sprucing up your garden or decluttering your loft, there's a fair possibility that you'll be creating quite a lot of rubbish which will need disposing of. Now, it is possible to put a lot of junk in your car boot and haul it to a nearby dump in Oakham, but this takes time, will probably mess up or damage your car, and is restricted to what will easily fit in your boot. The most popular option for most people in Oakham is to hire a skip, and get all of that unsightly trash lugged away, recycled and disposed of properly. If you determine that this is the best idea for you, then the initial job is to search out a trusted company offering skip hire in Oakham, and book to get a skip dropped at your property.

Skip Hire Basics: As soon as you've located the ideal Oakham skip hire company, there are three key factors that you need to come to a decision on: when do you need the skip, what size skip will you require and where are you going to site it?

Skip Sizes: You'll find various different sizes of skips readily available for rent and most Oakham skip hire providers can provide whatever size you prefer for your upcoming waste disposal, and for most people this will be a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (3-4 cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a builders skip (six to eight cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 black bags). The most widespread skip that you normally see outside homes in Oakham, when they are doing refurbishing is the standard builders skip which will take a substantial quantity of trash, with no need to overfill it.

The standard builders skip should be suitable for nearly all home improvements, loft clearances, garden clearances and those types of jobs. A decent example of a task that a builders skip will be perfect for is when you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you'll want to dispose of all the old unwanted units and fittings, the packaging from the new units and fittings and all the additional garbage produced in the work.

Positioning the Skip: You're going to need an appropriate position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or perhaps an area of lawn that you don't mind causing damage to. If you do not have a driveway or appropriate spot on your property, you might have to put the skip on the street outside your property, in which instance you are most likely going to need to apply for a licence from your local authority. Generally, skip hire companies in Oakham will be quite happy to acquire this permit on your behalf, whilst some could ask that you apply for this yourself. It is much better to go with skip hire provider who'll get the mandatory licence/permit for you, as they know where to go, how to obtain it and what you need. Needless to say your best option is to site the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove one or two fence panels to squeeze it in, as this avoids the need for permits, licences and that type of bother. If you do must get a permit yourself, it's fairly simple to apply for one on the web. Skips put on a main highway will need night safety lamps, traffic cones and reflective markers to warn other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting your skip booked and delivered at the appropriate time is also crucial, because hiring a skip isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Oakham, will only allow you to keep the skip for two or three weeks, so you will not want the skip standing there unused for a few days whilst you're hanging around waiting for the work to begin. Try and time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the start of your project or with the day that you begin generating rubbish. By doing it this way, you'll get the maximum use from your skip and reduce the prospect of the skip hire company hassling you to pick it up before you're ready. Once the skip is full up and you're ready to get it collected, give the skip hire company no less than 2 days notice as they will need to fit it into their busy schedule.

Filling Your Skip: When it comes to putting rubbish into the skip, you should take care that this is done properly, try to pack your waste in as neatly as possible. As well as being safer this will allow you to get more waste into it. You should make sure you only put acceptable waste items into your skip since most skip hire businesses in Oakham, will not let you tip certain sorts of garbage such as fridges, car tyres, PC monitors, aerosols, gas canisters, asbestos, toxic materials, TV's and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip as the driver may refuse to take the skip away if he thinks it could be dangerous. Skip drivers typically throw a safety net across the top of the skip prior to lifting it onto their wagon, although this is mostly intended to retain light fly-away materials, therefore make certain nothing dangerous and heavy is able to tumble off skip during transit.

Probably the foremost action to take when hiring a skip in Oakham, is to be sure that you choose a skip hire company who'll get rid of your trash responsibly. You, being the waste source, are solely responsible for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped 600 metres along the road, it's your door that the local council enforcement officers will no doubt be knocking on with a huge fine. Skip hire companies in Oakham need to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so confirm that they have one of these and that it is genuine. Apart from this there's almost no regulation or legislation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it is something of a minefield searching for one which is legitimate and responsible. If a skip hire firm has been conducting business for some years in the Oakham, Rutland area, it's likely that they're going to be a good choice.

This means the cheapest skip hire in Oakham isn't necessarily the best.
