Skip Hire Explained: As soon as you have identified a trusted Stafford skip hire company, there will be 3 important things that you'll need to take note of: when do you want it, what size skip will you need and where exactly are you going to site it?

Skip Hire Stafford Staffordshire

Sizes of Skip: You will find a lot of different skip sizes readily available for hire and the majority of Stafford skip hire companies can provide whatever size you require for your upcoming waste removal job, and normally this will likely be a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 bin bags). The most frequently used skip which you normally see outside properties in Stafford, when they are having improvements is the builders skip which can hold a decent volume of garbage, without having to overfill it or stick doors or boards down the sides to make additional room.

The standard builders skip should be suitable for most attic clearances, garden clearances, home improvements and those kind of jobs. A great illustration of a job that a builders skip would be perfect for is if you are having a bathroom or kitchen fitted and you need to get rid of all the packaging from the new units and fittings, the old units and fittings and all of the other rubbish produced during the work.

Where to Position the Skip: You are going to need to have a suitable position on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or an area of lawn which you don't care about causing damage to. If there is not a drive or suitable area on your property, you may have to place your skip on the roadway bordering your property, in which instance you're most likely going to have to obtain a licence from the local council. Nearly all skip hire companies in Stafford will get this licence for you, while others may require that you obtain this yourself. It is better to go with skip hire company who will get the necessary licence/permit for you, because they know how to obtain it, where to apply and what's required. Obviously the preferred option is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if it is necessary to temporarily remove a few fencing panels to get it in, as this negates the requirement for permits and that sort of aggravation. If you find you need to obtain a permit yourself, it's possible to apply for one on the internet. Skips positioned on a main highway will require night safety lights, reflective markers and traffic cones to warn other road users, and you can be fined up to £1000 if you fail to do this.

Reserving a Skip: Getting the skip reserved and delivered to your property at the right time is likewise vital, because skip hire isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Stafford, will only allow you to keep the skip for something like two weeks, so you want to avoid the skip standing there idle for days on end whilst you are waiting for the job to start. Try to time the arrival of your skip to coincide with the starting day of the job or with the day you begin generating rubbish. That way, you'll get the maximum use from the skip and minimize the chances of the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up before you are ready. Once the skip is loaded and it is ready to be collected, give the skip hire company at least 2 days notice since they will have to fit it into their no doubt busy timetable.

Filling a Skip: When filling the skip, you need to take care that this is done in the right way, aim to pack the waste in as snugly as you can. Besides being safer this should enable you to cram more trash in. Always make sure you only put acceptable items into the skip since the majority of skip hire providers in Stafford, won't allow certain kinds of garbage including freezers, TV's, toxic substances, gas canisters, tyres, full paint cans, PC monitors, aerosols and plasterboard. Don't over fill the skip as the driver could refuse to take the skip away if he deems it dangerous. Skip drivers will often chuck a safety net over the skip prior to loading it onto their lorry, but this is mainly meant to secure fly-away items, therefore make sure nothing heavy and dangerous is able to tumble off skip during transit.

Undoubtedly the most vital action to take when you're hiring a skip in Stafford, is to make sure that you use a skip hire company who'll dispose of your trash responsibly. You, as the source of the waste, are liable for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped a mile along the road, it is your front door which council enforcement officers will no doubt be rapping on with a large fine. Skip hire firms in Stafford need to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so make sure they have one of these and that it is current and genuine. Aside from this there is little or no legislation or regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it is not always as straightforward as it should be finding one that's responsible and legitimate.
