Skip Hire Strone Highland

Skip Hire Strone Highland: If you're thinking about decluttering your attic, tidying your garden, fitting a new bathroom or doing home improvements, there is a good likelihood that you will be generating loads of waste and rubbish that will have to be disposed of. Now, you can put quite a bit of stuff in your car and haul it to the nearest waste tip in Strone, but this will take time, may well mess up or damage your vehicle, and it is restricted to what will easily fit in the boot. The popular option for most people in Strone is to hire a skip, and get all that unsightly trash hauled away, re-cycled and disposed of in a responsible manner. If you decide that this is the perfect solution for you, then your initial task is to find a responsible company that does skip hire in Strone, and arrange to get a skip delivered to your home.

Skip Hire Guide: Once you have found a suitable Strone skip hire enterprise, there will be 3 significant things that you will have to consider: what size skip do you need, when will you want it and where exactly are you going to site the skip?

Skip Hire Strone Highland

Skip Sizes: There are actually quite a few skip sizes available for rent and most Strone skip hire providers can provide whatever size you require for your waste removal project, and for most this is a choice between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 bin bags), a builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 bin bags). The most commonplace skip size which you regularly see outside houses in Strone, when they're having refurbishing is the standard builders skip which can hold a respectable amount of junk, without the need to overfill it or stick boards or doors down the sides to get more in.

The builders skip will be appropriate for the majority of garden clearances, home improvement projects, attic clearances and those kind of jobs. A typical example of a task that a builders skip would be suitable for is when you're replacing a bathroom or kitchen and you will need to get rid of all the packaging from the new fittings and units, the old units and fittings and all of the additional garbage generated during the work.

Positioning the Skip: You are going to need to find the right place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is best, or an area of lawn that you don't mind causing damage to. If you haven't got a drive or equally suitable spot on your property, you might have to put your skip on the roadway outside your property, in which case you are almost certainly going to need to get a licence from the local authority. Almost all skip hire companies in Strone will be glad to obtain this licence on your behalf, whilst others may require that you get this yourself. It's far better to go with skip hire company who will obtain the required licence for you, since they know exactly where to apply, how to obtain it and what you need. Needless to say the better option is to position the skip somewhere on your property, even if you need to temporarily remove a few fence panels to fit it in, as this eliminates the necessity for licences, permits and that sort of aggravation. If you find you need to get a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to submit an application for one on the internet. Skips positioned on a main highway will require reflective markers, safety lamps and traffic cones to warn other road users, you could be fined as much as £1000 if you do not take such measures.

Booking a Skip: Getting the skip scheduled and delivered at the right time is also important, because skips are not cheap and in general skip hire providers in Strone, will only allow you to keep the skip for a couple of weeks, this means you don't want the skip laying unused for a few days whilst you're waiting for the builders to start. See if you can time the arrival of the skip to correspond with the start of your job or with the day you begin producing rubbish. By doing it that way, you'll get the maximum use out of the skip and reduce the likelihood of the skip hire company hassling you to pick it up before you are finished with it. Once the skip is filled and you are ready to have it picked up, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of 48 hours notice because they will have to fit the collection into their busy timetable.

Filling a Skip: When it comes to putting rubbish into your skip, you must make sure that you do this properly, try to pack your garbage in as snugly as you can. Besides being safer this will also enable you to fit more trash into it. Ensure you only put allowed waste items into your skip because the majority of skip hire providers in Strone, will not let you dump certain types of rubbish such as gas canisters, batteries, freezers, aerosols, computer monitors, car tyres, toxic materials, televisions and plasterboard. Do not over fill the skip as the driver may refuse to take away the skip if he thinks it is unsafe. Skip drivers generally stretch a safety net across the top of the skip prior to loading it onto their wagon, but this is primarily meant to secure the lighter items, therefore make certain that nothing heavy and dangerous can topple off of the skip while being transported.

Possibly the most essential thing to do when hiring a skip in Strone, is to be sure that you select a skip hire company who will get rid of your trash responsibly. You, as the waste source, are solely responsible for its disposal, so if it's fly-tipped 600 metres down the road, it's your front door that the council enforcement officers will likely be banging on with a huge fine. Skip hire firms in Strone should carry a "waste carriers license", so check that they have got one and that it is genuine. Aside from this obligation there is not much legislation or regulation controlling skip hire businesses, therefore it is not always plain sailing finding one that's legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire company has been doing business for some years in the Strone, Highland area, it is most likely that they will be a reasonable choice.

Strone Skip Hire Prices

Please be aware that, as with other services, you might encounter rogue traders and cowboys in your area who will gleefully take your cash, take your rubbish and take the mickey, by fly-tipping it in the closest Strone lay-by. So, don't employ these people, even if they're a couple of pounds cheaper than their law-abiding competition, because it could quite possibly cost you much more in the end (in the form of local authority fines!). This means the cheapest skip hire in Strone isn't necessarily the best.

Skip Hire Price Comparison Sites: On the internet you may come across certain sites which offer the ability to compare skip hire prices in Strone, Highland. It is okay to test these sites out and see what sort of prices they offer you, though basically with price comparison websites you will end up coughing up an additional commission which is paid to the comparison site itself, and so you might not be getting the lowest skip hire price possible for the Strone area. This will however help save a bit of time, so you'll need to balance out cost and time and decide which of these you need to save the most.
