Skip Hire Strathdon Aberdeenshire

Skip Hire Strathdon Aberdeenshire: If you're organizing fitting a new bathroom, tidying your garden, doing home improvements or decluttering your attic, there's a fair possibility that you will be producing a whole lot of rubbish that will need disposing of. Now, it is possible to put a fair amount of junk in the boot of your car and take it to a nearby tip in Strathdon, but this requires time, could damage or mess up your vehicle, and will be limited by what you can easily fit into your boot. The preferred option for most folk in Strathdon is to hire a skip, and get all that trash taken away, re-cycled and dumped correctly. If you determine that this is the ideal solution for you, then the initial task is to uncover a reliable company that offer skip hire in Strathdon, and book to have a skip brought to your home.

Skip Hire Basics: Once you've found a suitable Strathdon skip hire company, there are three main things that you'll need to come to a decision on: when do you want the skip, what size of skip do you require and where exactly are you going to place the skip?

Skip Hire Strathdon Aberdeenshire

Skip Sizes: You will find a range of different sizes of skips readily available for rent and the majority of Strathdon skip hire providers will provide whatever size you prefer for your upcoming waste removal project, and in general it's a choice between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most familiar skip size that you usually see outside houses in Strathdon, when they are doing refurbishing is the standard builders skip which is suitable for a fair volume of trash, without having to overfill it.

The standard builders skip should be suitable for the majority of attic clearances, garden clearances, home improvement projects and similar types of job. A typical example of a project which a builders skip will be ideal for is if you're replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you need to dispose of all the unwanted units and fittings, the packing from the new units and fittings and all the other trash produced during the work.

Where to Site the Skip: You're going to need a suitable position on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe an area of lawn which you do not care about damaging. If you do not have a driveway or suitable area on your property, you might have to put the skip on the main road bordering it, in which instance you're most likely going to need to apply for a licence from your local council. Normally, skip hire companies in Strathdon will be quite happy to get this permit on your behalf, while some may require that you obtain this yourself. It is less hassle to use a skip hire provider which will obtain the mandatory licence/permit for you, as they know exactly where to apply, what is needed and how to obtain it. Undoubtedly the better option is to position the skip somewhere on your property, even if you need to take down two or three fencing panels to get it in, as this avoids the need for licences, permits and that type of hassle. If you have to obtain a permit yourself, it's possible to make an application for one online. Skips placed on a main highway will require night lights, reflective markings and traffic cones to warn motorists and other road users, you could be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Booking a Skip: Getting your skip ordered and delivered at the perfect time is also vital, given that skip hire isn't cheap and generally skip hire companies in Strathdon, will only allow you to keep hold of the skip for about two weeks, which means you want to avoid your skip sitting there idle for a few days whilst you're waiting for the work to begin. Try to time the delivery of your skip to coincide with the start of the job or otherwise with the day you start producing rubbish. By doing this, you'll get the maximum from your skip and not have the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up before you're ready. When the skip is filled and you are ready to get it collected, try to give the skip hire company no less than 48 hours notice since they will have to fit it into their busy schedule.

Filling the Skip: When filling up the skip, you need to be careful that this is done correctly, try and pack your junk in as tidily as you can. Aside from being less dangerous this will enable you to slot more waste into it. Make sure that you only put allowable waste items into your skip because the majority of skip hire businesses in Strathdon, will not take away certain kinds of trash including aerosols, fridges, PC monitors, full paint cans, toxic materials, tyres, TV's, gas canisters and plasterboard. Do not over fill the skip because the driver might refuse to take away the skip if he believes it could be dangerous. Skip drivers will generally throw a safety net across the top of the skip prior to lifting it onto the truck, although this is primarily meant to secure lighter fly-away items, so make certain nothing heavy and hazardous is able to topple off skip in transit.

Probably the most important thing to do when hiring a skip in Strathdon, is to ensure that you choose a skip hire company who'll dispose of your rubbish responsibly. You, as the source of the waste, are responsible for its disposal, so if it is fly-tipped half a mile along the road, it is your door which the council enforcement officers will be banging on with a large penalty fine. Skip hire companies in Strathdon must hold a valid "waste carriers license", so ensure that they've got one of these and that it is valid. Aside from this requirement there's hardly any regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it's not always plain sailing identifying one that is responsible and legitimate. Usually if a skip hire company has been conducting its business for several years in the Strathdon, Aberdeenshire area, it's quite likely that they'll be a reasonable choice.
