Skip Hire Poole Dorset

Skip Hire Poole Dorset: If you're arranging for doing home improvements, decluttering your loft, replacing your kitchen or tidying your garden, there's a fairly good likelihood that you're gonna be creating lots of waste and rubbish that's going to have to be got rid of. Now, you can put a lot of it in your car boot and take it to the nearest waste tip in Poole, but this takes time, is likely to damage or mess up your car, and will be limited by what you're able to fit into your boot. The preferable alternative for most people in Poole is to hire a skip, and have all that waste lugged away, re-cycled and discarded correctly. If you decide that this is the perfect solution for you, then the main task is to find a responsible company who offer skip hire in Poole, and arrange to get a skip transported to your home.

Skip Hire Basics: When you have discovered a trusted Poole skip hire firm, there are going to be three main factors that you need to decide upon: what size skip will you need, when do you need it and where are you going to place the skip?

Skip Hire Poole Dorset

Sizes of Skip: There are actually a lot of different skip sizes readily available for hire and most Poole skip hire providers can provide whichever size you need for your planned waste disposal project, and in most cases it's a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 black 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 bin bags). The most popular skip size that you usually see outside houses in Poole, when they're doing improvements is the standard builders skip into which you can get a substantial quantity of waste, without the need to overfill it.

The builders skip will be suitable for almost all garden clearances, attic clearances, home improvements and similar types of job. A great illustration of a task which a builders skip would be appropriate for is when you're having a new bathroom or kitchen fitted and you need to get rid of all the old fittings and units, the packaging from the new units and fittings and all the other garbage produced in the work.

A Site for the Skip: You are going to need to have a suitable position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is ideal, or maybe a piece of lawn that you don't mind causing damage to. If there isn't a driveway or suitable place on your property, you may need to put the skip on the street outside your property, in which instance you're most likely going to have to get a permit/licence from your local authority. Generally, skip hire companies in Poole will be happy to acquire this permit on your behalf, whilst some may require that you apply for this yourself. It is less hassle to use a skip hire firm which will get the required licence/permit for you, as they know where to go, what is needed and how to obtain it. Needless to say the best option is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if you need to remove a few fence panels to get it in, because this sidesteps the necessity for licences, permits and all that bother. If you find you must get a permit yourself, it's quite simple to make an application for one on the internet. Skips placed on main roads will require reflective markings, traffic cones and safety lights to warn motorists and other road users, and you can be fined as much as £1000 if you do not take such measures.

Getting Your Skip Delivered: Getting your skip booked and delivered at the correct time is also vital, since skip hire is not cheap and in general skip hire providers in Poole, will only allow you to keep hold of the skip for a week or two, which means you do not want the skip lying idle for a few days whilst you're waiting for the work to begin. Try and time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the start of the project or with the day you begin generating rubbish. By doing this, you're going to get the most use out of the skip and reduce the chance of the skip hire company hassling you to collect it before you're finished with it. When the skip is full up and it's ready to be picked up, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of 48 hours notice as they will need to slot it into their no doubt busy schedule.

Filling the Skip: When it comes to filling the skip, you must be careful that this is done properly, try to pack the junk in as snugly as possible. As well as being less dangerous this will also permit you to squeeze more stuff into it. You should make sure you only put allowable waste into your skip as the majority of skip hire providers in Poole, won't allow certain kinds of waste materials like tyres, TV's, batteries, gas canisters, aerosols, PC monitors, fridges, toxic materials and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip as the driver could refuse to take the skip away if he deems it to be dangerous. Skip drivers will often spread a safety net over the skip prior to lifting it onto their lorry, but this is mainly to retain lightish items, so make certain nothing dangerous and large is able to slip off of the skip in transit.

Perhaps the most important course of action when hiring a skip in Poole, is to be sure that you choose a skip hire firm who'll dispose of your rubbish responsibly. You, being the source of the waste, are liable for its disposal, therefore if it is fly-tipped half a mile down the road, it's your door that local council enforcement officers are going to be knocking on with a substantial fine in hand. Skip hire providers in Poole need to carry a "waste carriers license", so ensure that they have one and that it is current and valid. Apart from this obligation there's not much legislation or regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it's not always straightforward identifying one which is legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire company has been conducting business for several years in the Poole, Dorset area, it is most likely that they will be a good choice.

Poole Skip Hire Prices

Please note that, as with many services, you could encounter cowboys and rogue traders in your area who'll happily take your hard earned money, take your junk and take liberties, by fly-tipping it in the nearest Poole lay-by. So, do not hire such individuals, even if they are a few pounds cheaper than their law-abiding competitors, given it can potentially cost you much more in the end (in the shape of council fines!). This means the cheapest skip hire in Poole isn't necessarily the best.

Skip Hire Prices Poole - A Guide: Naturally, as I'm certain you will realise, skip hire prices can vary greatly dependant upon the skip company that you use, the area of the UK in which you need the skip and the size of skip you need.

Grab Lorry Hire in Poole: One alternative solution to getting a skip for your waste removal is to phone for a grabber (grab) truck instead, this is a wise idea for garden clearances and that type of project, as well as a great solution wherever space or access for a skip is restricted. If a grab lorry can get reasonably close to your garden in Poole, it can easily collect a huge quantity of rubbish in just one or two scoops, and save you the effort of needing to load a skip and ensure it is safe. Grabber trucks can collect anything between 1 and 14 cubic metres of rubbish in a single outing and can collect a variety of materials including hardcore, soil, general building waste, concrete, rocks, brick and green waste. This kind of service is often known as "grab hire and muck away", which fairly accurately portrays what is on offer, generally using a 32 tonne lorry, which is able to haul up to sixteen tonnes of waste material.

Price Comparison Sites and Skip Hire: Online you can discover some websites offering the opportunity to compare skip hire prices in Poole, Dorset. It is okay to test these websites out and see what sort of prices they return, although usually with price comparison websites you may easily end up shelling out an additional fee which is paid to the site itself, thus you might not be receiving the best skip hire price possible for the Poole area. This might however save some precious time, so you will have to balance time and cost and choose which you wish to save the most.
