Now, you might be able to put a fair bit of stuff in the back of your car and take it to the nearest dump in Thame, but this will take time, will probably damage or mess up your car, and it is limited to what will slip into the boot.

Should you determine that this is the best idea for you, then the main task is to find a trusted company that does skip hire in Thame, and organize to get a skip dropped at your home.

Skip Hire Explained: As soon as you have located a trusted Thame skip hire company, there will be 3 key factors that you'll need to decide upon: when will you want it, what size skip do you require and where exactly are you going to site it?

Sizes of Skip: There are actually many different skip sizes available for rent and most Thame skip hire companies will provide whichever size you need for your upcoming waste disposal project, and in most cases this will be a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (3-4 cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most familiar skip size which you usually see outside houses in Thame, when they are having remodeling is the builders skip which will take a considerable volume of trash, without having to overfill it or push doors or boards along the sides to make additional room.

The standard builders skip will be best for nearly all attic clearances, garden clearances, home improvement projects and similar types of job. A great example of a job that a builders skip may be right for is when you are having a bathroom or kitchen fitted and you will need to dispose of all the packaging from the new fittings and units, the unwanted units and fittings and all the additional waste materials generated during the process.

A Site for the Skip: You'll need the right position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is perfect, or perhaps a section of lawn which you don't mind causing damage to. If you do not have a driveway or equally suitable area on your property, you might have to site your skip on the road bordering it, in which case you're in all probability going to need to apply for a permit from your local council. Almost all skip hire companies in Thame will get this licence for you, while others may demand that you get this yourself. It is better to use a skip hire company who'll obtain the required permit/licence for you, because they know precisely what's required, how to obtain it and where to go. Undoubtedly your best option is to position the skip inside the boundaries of your property, even if it is necessary to take down a few fence panels to fit it in, because this sidesteps the need for permits, licences and all that bother. If you must obtain a permit yourself, it's fairly simple to make an application for one on the web. Skips put on main roads will require traffic cones, night safety lights and reflective markings to alert other road users, and you may be fined up to £1000 if you don't take these measures.

Arranging a Skip: Getting your skip booked and delivered to your property at the appropriate time is likewise vital, since skip hire is not cheap and generally skip hire companies in Thame, will only allow you to hang on to the skip for approximately 2 weeks, this means you do not want the skip lying there unused for days on end while you are waiting around for the work to start. See if you can time the arrival of the skip to coincide with the starting time of the job or with the day you start accumulating rubbish. By doing it this way, you will get the most value from your skip and minimize the likelihood of the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you are finished with it. When the skip is loaded and you're ready to get it picked up, give the skip hire company a minimum of 48 hours notice since they will have to fit it into their no doubt busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When filling your skip, you must ensure that you do this properly, try and pack your junk in as snugly as you can. Besides being less hazardous this will also permit you to get more waste in. Be sure you only put allowed articles into the skip since many skip hire businesses in Thame, will not let you dump certain sorts of materials including PC monitors, aerosols, televisions, toxic substances, gas canisters, fridge/freezers, tyres, full paint cans and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip because the driver could refuse to take the skip away if he believes it could be unsafe. Skip drivers will usually stretch a safety net across the skip before lifting it up onto their wagon, but this is mostly intended to secure light fly-away items, so make certain that nothing dangerous and large can tumble off of the skip in transit.

Probably the most important thing to do when you're hiring a skip in Thame, is to make sure that you pick a skip hire firm who will get rid of your rubbish responsibly. You, as the waste source, are accountable for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped 600 yards down the road, it is your front door which the local authority enforcement officers will doubtless be rapping on with a large penalty fine. Skip hire providers in Thame should carry a "waste carriers license", so confirm that they have got one of these and that it is genuine. Apart from this requirement there's no legislation or regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it is something of a minefield identifying one that's responsible and legitimate. Generally if a skip hire company has been conducting business for some years in the Thame, Oxfordshire area, it's quite likely that they will be a reasonable choice.

This means the cheapest skip hire in Thame is not guaranteed to be the best.

Skip Hire Prices Thame - A Guide: Obviously, as I'm certain you'll realise, skip hire prices vary according to the size of the skip you require, the skip hire company that you choose and the area of the British Isles in which you are hiring the skip.
