Skip Hire Reading Berkshire

Skip Hire Reading Berkshire: If you are organizing clearing out your attic, tidying up your garden, some home improvements or fitting a new kitchen, there is a fair likelihood that you are going to be generating a whole lot of waste that's going to need to be disposed of. Now, you can put a fair amount of it in the back of your car and haul it to a nearby tip in Reading, but this will take time, is likely to damage or mess up your car, and will be restricted to what you are able to slip into your boot. The preferable alternative for the majority of people in Reading is to hire a skip, and get all of that unsightly rubbish lugged away, recycled and disposed of correctly. If you decide that this is the perfect solution for you, then the first challenge is to identify a dependable company which offers skip hire in Reading, and arrange to get a skip transported to your home.

Guide to Skip Hire: As soon as you've located a suitable Reading skip hire firm, there are three significant details that you will need to decide on: what size skip do you require, when do you want it and where exactly are you going to have the skip sited?

Skip Hire Reading Berkshire

Skip Sizes: There are going to be a lot of different skip sizes available for hire and the majority of Reading skip hire providers can provide whatever size you want for your waste disposal project, and typically this will be a choice between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight cubic yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 bin bags). The most familiar skip that you normally see outside properties in Reading, when they are having refurbishments is the builders skip which will take a considerable amount of trash, without the need to overfill it.

The builders skip should be suitable for the majority of home improvement projects, garden clearances, loft clearances and other similar jobs. A typical illustration of an undertaking that a builders skip will be ideal for is if you're replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you will need to get rid of all the packing from the new fittings and units, the unwanted fittings and units and all of the additional garbage generated in the process.

A Site for the Skip: You will need an appropriate position on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is ideal, or a section of lawn which you do not mind causing damage to. If there isn't a driveway or equally suitable area on your property, you might have to position your skip on the roadway outside your property, in which case you are almost certainly going to need to obtain a licence from the local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Reading will be happy to get this licence on your behalf, whilst some may demand that you get this yourself. It's better to go with skip hire provider who'll obtain the required permit/licence for you, since they know where to go, how to obtain it and what's required. Obviously the preferred option is to put the skip on your property, even if you need to take down a few fencing panels to get it in, as this negates the requirement for permits and that type of aggravation. If you find you need to get a licence yourself, it's possible to apply for one on the internet. Skips placed on a main highway will require traffic cones, reflective markings and night safety lamps to warn motorists and other road users, and you may be fined as much as £1000 if you do not take these measures.

Reserving Your Skip: Getting your skip booked and delivered at the appropriate time is likewise critical, given that hiring a skip isn't cheap and skip hire providers in Reading, will only allow you to keep hold of the skip for about 2 weeks, this means you wouldn't want the skip laying unused for several days while you're waiting for the work to start. Try to time the arrival of your skip to correspond with the starting day of your job or perhaps with the day that you start accumulating rubbish. By doing this, you will get the maximum value out of your skip and not have the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up before you're finished with it. When the skip is full up and it's ready to be collected, try to give the skip hire company no less than two days notice because they will need to fit the collection into their busy schedule.

Filling Your Skip: When putting rubbish into your skip, you should ensure that this is done in the right way, aim to stack the waste in as neatly as you can. As well as being less dangerous this should also allow you to cram more junk into it. Always make sure you only put acceptable items into your skip since the majority of skip hire firms in Reading, won't let you tip certain types of waste materials including toxic substances, aerosols, full paint cans, televisions, freezers, tyres, PC monitors, gas canisters and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip because the driver might refuse to take the skip away if he thinks it is dangerous. Skip drivers will generally spread a safety net across the top of the skip prior to lifting it up onto their wagon, but this is mainly meant to retain the lighter materials, therefore make sure that nothing hazardous and heavy can fall from the skip in transit.

I think foremost action to take when hiring a skip in Reading, is to ensure that you pick a skip hire company who will dispose of your waste responsibly. You, as the source of the waste, are responsible for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped 600 yards down the road, it is your door that council enforcement officers will no doubt be knocking on with a large penalty fine. Skip hire firms in Reading need to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so confirm that they've got one of these and that it is current. Apart from this obligation there is almost no legislation or regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it is not always as straightforward as it should be finding one which is responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire firm has been doing business for many years in the Reading, Berkshire area, it is quite likely that they are going to be a reasonable choice.

Bear in mind that, as with many services, you may encounter cowboys and rogue traders around who'll simply take your hard earned money, take away your trash and take the mick, by fly-tipping it in the nearest Reading lay-by. So, don't use these people, whether or not they are a couple of quid cheaper than their law-abiding competitors, as it can potentially cost you quite a bit more in the end (in the shape of council fines!). This could mean that the cheapest skip hire in Reading is not always the best.

Skip Hire Prices Reading - A Rough Guide: Obviously, as I'm certain you'll realize, skip hire prices vary subject to the size of the skip that you need, the skip hire provider you use and the area of Britain where you are hiring the skip. As an approximate guide a mini (2 yard) skip should range from about £60 to £120, a midi skip (4 yard) should cost from around £85 to £200, a builders skip (8 yard) will cost from about £140 to £300. A licence for locating a skip on a main highway will likely cost around £25 (in 2017).

Hiring a Grabber Lorry in Reading: One alternative solution to using a skip for your rubbish removal is to book a grabber (grab) truck instead, this can be a better idea for garden clearances and those types of projects, and additionally a great option whenever access or space for a skip is tight. If a grab truck can get fairly close to your garden in Reading, it will be able to pick up a substantial quantity of rubbish in a couple of scoops, and save you the effort of needing to load a skip and make sure it is safe. Grabber trucks can manage between one and fourteen cubic metres of rubbish in a single outing and can take many different materials such as concrete, bricks, hardcore, general building waste, soil, rocks and garden waste. This kind of service is often referred to as "grab hire and muck away", which fairly accurately describes what's offered, typically using a 32 tonne lorry, which can transport up to 16 tonnes of waste and rubbish.

Price Comparison Sites and Skip Hire: On the internet you will notice certain websites that provide the chance to compare skip hire prices in Reading, Berkshire. Take advantage and try those sites out and see exactly what kind of prices they come up with, although basically with price comparison websites you will end up forking out an additional fee (commission) which is paid to the comparison site itself, thus you might not be receiving the cheapest skip hire price possible for the Reading area. This could however help save some time, therefore you will have to balance out cost and time and decide which of these you would like to save the most.
