Skip Hire Ockley Surrey

Skip Hire Ockley Surrey: If you're arranging for having a new kitchen fitted, some home improvements, clearing out your loft space or sprucing up your garden, there's a fairly good chance that you'll be producing a lot of rubbish that is going to have to be got rid of. Now, you may be able to put a fair amount of junk in your car and haul it to a nearby tip in Ockley, but this can take time, will probably mess up or damage your car, and it is limited by what you are able to slip into the boot. The favoured alternative for nearly everybody in Ockley is to hire a skip, and have all that waste hauled away, recycled and disposed of properly. If you determine that this is the perfect solution for you, then your initial challenge is to uncover a trusted company that offer skip hire in Ockley, and arrange to get a skip transported to your property.

Guide to Hiring a Skip: Once you've found a trusted Ockley skip hire enterprise, there are going to be three important things that you'll have to think about: where are you going to site it, what size skip do you need and when will you want the skip?

Skip Hire Ockley Surrey

Sizes of Skip: You'll find many different skip sizes available for hire and the majority of Ockley skip hire providers can provide whichever size you prefer for your waste removal, and usually it's a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (three to four 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 popular skip size which you often see outside properties in Ockley, when they are doing remodeling is the standard builders skip which will hold a decent amount of trash, with no need to overfill it or push boards down the sides to make extra room.

The builders skip should be appropriate for the majority of garden clearances, home improvement projects, loft clearances and those types of jobs. A typical example of a task which a builders skip would be appropriate for is when you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to dispose of all the packaging from the new units and fittings, the old unwanted units and fittings and all of the other trash generated in the work.

A Site for the Skip: You'll need to find the right position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is perfect, or perhaps an area of lawn which you do not mind damaging. If you do not have a driveway or equally appropriate place on your property, you might need to site the skip on the roadway bordering your property, in which instance you are most likely going to have to get a licence from your local authority. Most skip hire companies in Ockley will be glad to get this permit on your behalf, while some may require that you apply for this yourself. It's better to go with skip hire company which will obtain the necessary permit/licence for you, since they know exactly where to go, how to obtain it and what's required. Needless to say the best option is to put the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove a few fencing panels to get it in, because this avoids the requirement for permits and that sort of aggravation. If you find you have to get a permit yourself, it's quite simple to submit an application for one online. Skips sited on main roads will require traffic cones, reflective markers and night lamps to alert motorists and other road users, and you might be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Getting Your Skip Delivered: Getting the skip ordered and delivered at the appropriate time is likewise critical, given that skips are not cheap and most skip hire providers in Ockley, will only allow you to keep hold of the skip for two or three weeks, this means you wouldn't want your skip standing there unused for a week while you are waiting for the work to begin. Try to time the delivery of the skip to coincide with the starting day of your job or with the day when you start generating rubbish. By doing it that way, you'll get the most value from your skip and avoid having the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you are ready. When the skip is full and you are ready to get it collected, give the skip hire company no less than two days notice because they will have to fit it into their no doubt busy agenda.

Filling Your Skip: When filling your skip, you need to take care that this is done correctly, try and pack your trash in as tidily as possible. Apart from being less hazardous this should also allow you to jam more stuff into it. Make certain you only put allowed waste items into the skip as the majority of skip hire businesses in Ockley, will not allow certain types of waste such as gas canisters, tyres, aerosols, toxic substances, batteries, TV's, PC monitors, fridges and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip as the driver can refuse to take the skip away if he deems it to be unsafe. Skip drivers usually throw a safety net across the skip before lifting it onto the lorry, but this is mostly intended to secure fly-away items, so make certain nothing dangerous and heavy can fall off of the skip in transit.

Probably the most vital course of action when you are hiring a skip in Ockley, is to ensure that you choose a skip hire company who'll dispose of your rubbish responsibly. You, being the producer of the waste, are responsible for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped 500 yards along the road, it's your front door that local council enforcement officers are going to be banging on with a substantial fine. Skip hire providers in Ockley need to carry 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 hardly any regulation or legislation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it's something of a minefield identifying one that's responsible and legitimate. Usually if a skip hire firm has been operating for some years in the Ockley, Surrey area, it's likely that they'll be a good choice.

So, don't choose these individuals, even when they are a few pounds cheaper than their legitimate competition, as it can potentially cost you an awful lot more in the long run (in the shape of council fines!). This could mean that the cheapest skip hire in Ockley is not necessarily the best.
