Skip Sizes: There are going to be various different sizes of skips available for hire and the majority of Potters Bar skip hire providers will offer whichever size you prefer for your planned waste removal task, and for most it's a choice between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 black bags). The most common skip that you normally see outside properties in Potters Bar, when they are doing remodeling is the standard builders skip which will take a good amount of junk, without having to overfill it.

The builders skip will be appropriate for most garden clearances, loft clearances, home improvements and similar types of job. A good example of a job which a builders skip may be right for is when you are having a kitchen or bathroom fitted and it is necessary to dispose of all the old unwanted units and fittings, the packing from the new units and fittings and all of the other rubbish generated during the process.

Positioning the Skip: You will need to find the right place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is perfect, or an area of lawn which you do not care about damaging. If there isn't a drive or suitable place on your property, you might have to put the skip on the roadway outside your property, in which case you are probably going to have to apply for a permit from the local council. Nearly all skip hire companies in Potters Bar will be happy to acquire this permit for you, whilst others may ask that you get this yourself. It is far better to use a skip hire provider which will get the required licence/permit for you, since they know precisely what's required, where to go and how to get it. Naturally your best solution is to position the skip somewhere on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove two or three fence panels to fit it in, as this eliminates the need for licences, permits and all that aggravation. If you find you must get a permit yourself, it's possible to make an application for one on the internet. Skips placed on a main highway will need night lights, reflective markers and traffic cones to warn other road users, you can be fined as much as £1000 if you don't do this.

Reserving Your Skip: Getting the skip ordered and delivered at the correct time is also critical, given that hiring a skip isn't cheap and skip hire companies in Potters Bar, will only allow you to hang on to the skip for a couple of weeks, this means you don't want your skip sitting there idle for days on end whilst you're hanging around waiting for the workmen to arrive. Try and time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the starting time of your project or perhaps with the day you start accumulating rubbish. That way, you're going to get the most use from your skip and reduce the likelihood of the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you're finished with it. Once the skip is full and you're ready to have it picked up, allow the skip hire company at least 2 days notice because they will have to fit the collection into their no doubt busy schedule.
