Now, you may be able to put quite a bit of rubbish in the back of your car and haul it to a nearby waste tip in Prestwick, but this requires time, could damage or mess up your car, and it is restricted to what you are able to easily fit into the boot. The most popular option for most people in Prestwick is to hire a skip, and get all that unsightly trash lugged away, re-cycled and disposed of in a responsible manner. If you determine that this is the perfect solution for you, then your first task is to uncover a dependable company providing skip hire in Prestwick, and book to get a skip dropped at your home.

Guide to Skip Hire: Once you have identified a trusted Prestwick skip hire company, there are three important factors that you'll need to consider: what size of skip do you require, when do you want it and where exactly are you going to site it?

Skip Hire Prestwick South Ayrshire

Skip Sizes: You will find various sizes of skips available for rent and most Prestwick skip hire providers will provide whichever size you require for your waste disposal, and in most cases it's a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (12-14 cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The commonest skip size that you normally see outside houses in Prestwick, when they are having remodeling is the standard builders skip into which you can get a good volume of garbage, with no need to overfill it or shove doors or boards down the sides to make more space.

The standard builders skip should be just the job most garden clearances, attic clearances, home improvement projects and those types of jobs. A decent illustration of an undertaking which a builders skip will be perfect for is if you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to dispose of all the unwanted units and fittings, the packing from the new units and fittings and all the other trash produced in the process.

Positioning the Skip: You'll need the perfect position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is best, or perhaps a piece of lawn that you don't mind damaging. If you do not have a driveway or suitable place in your garden, you may have to position the skip on the street outside your property, in which instance you're almost certainly going to need to obtain a licence from your local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Prestwick will be quite happy to obtain this licence on your behalf, whilst others could ask that you apply for this yourself. It's better to use a skip hire company which will obtain the mandatory permit/licence for you, as they know exactly where to apply, how to get it and what's required. Obviously the better option is to site the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if you need to temporarily remove a couple of fence panels to get it in, as this sidesteps the need for permits, licences and all that hassle. If you need to obtain a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to apply for one on the web. Skips sited on a main highway will require reflective markers, night safety lamps and traffic cones to alert motorists and other road users, and you may be fined up to £1000 if you don't take such measures.

Booking Your Skip: Getting the skip booked and delivered at the right time is likewise important, because hiring a skip is not cheap and generally skip hire providers in Prestwick, will only allow you to tie up their skip for a couple of weeks, this means you wouldn't want the skip standing there unused for a few days whilst you're waiting for the work to begin. See if you can time the delivery of the skip to correspond with the starting time of your project or with the day that you begin generating rubbish. By doing it that way, you will get the most value from the skip and minimize the prospect of the skip hire company harassing you to collect it before you're ready. When the skip is full and you are ready to get it picked up, allow the skip hire company a minimum of 2 days notice as they will have to slot the collection into their busy agenda.

Filling a Skip: When filling up the skip, you must be careful that you do this properly, try to stack your junk in as snugly as you can. Apart from being less hazardous this will allow you to jam more trash in. Make certain you only put acceptable waste into your skip since the majority of skip hire companies in Prestwick, won't accept certain sorts of materials including aerosols, toxic materials, car tyres, asbestos, computer monitors, freezers, gas canisters, televisions and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip as the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he deems it to be unsafe. Skip drivers usually spread a safety net over the top of the skip prior to lifting it up onto the wagon, but this is mostly meant to secure light fly-away items, so ensure that nothing dangerous and large can tumble off of the skip during transit.

I think foremost move to make when hiring a skip in Prestwick, is to make sure that you select a skip hire company who will dispose of your garbage responsibly. You, as the producer of the waste, are solely responsible for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped half a mile down the road, it is your door which the local authority enforcement officers will be knocking on with a sizeable penalty fine. Skip hire companies in Prestwick have to carry a "waste carriers license", so ensure that they've got one of these and that it is genuine. Apart from this requirement there's almost no regulation applicable to the skip hire business, so it's not as straightforward as it should be finding one which is responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire firm has been conducting its business for some years in the Prestwick, South Ayrshire area, it is most likely that they are going to be a reasonable choice.
