Skip Hire Throwley Kent

Skip Hire Throwley Kent: If you happen to be preparing for tidying up your garden, decluttering your loft space, some home improvements or having a new kitchen fitted, there's a fairly good chance that you will be creating a considerable amount of waste which is going to need to be disposed of. Now, it is possible to put a lot of stuff in your car boot and haul it to the closest tip in Throwley, but this requires time, may damage or mess up your car, and will be restricted to what you're able to easily fit into the boot. The favoured solution for nearly everybody in Throwley is to hire a skip, and get all that waste carted away, recycled and disposed of properly. Should you decide that this is the perfect solution for you, then your first challenge is to track down a reputable company that does skip hire in Throwley, and organize to get a skip dropped at your home.

Guide to Hiring a Skip: When you have found a good Throwley skip hire firm, there will be three significant details that you need to think about: when do you want the skip, where exactly are you going to place the skip and what size of skip will you require?

Skip Hire Throwley Kent

Skip Sizes: You can find a number of sizes of skips readily available for rent and most Throwley skip hire providers will provide whichever size you prefer for your waste removal task, and for most people it's a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two cubic yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 black bags). The most widespread skip size that you regularly see outside houses in Throwley, when they're having remodeling is the builders skip which is suitable for a fair amount of junk, without having to overfill it.

The builders skip should be ideal for almost all home improvement projects, attic clearances, garden clearances and those types of jobs. A typical example of a project that a builders skip would be right for is when you're having a new kitchen or bathroom fitted and you'll want to dispose of all the packing from the new fittings and units, the unwanted units and fittings and all the additional rubbish produced during the work.

Positioning the Skip: You're going to need to have a suitable position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is perfect, or a piece of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If there is not a driveway or equally suitable spot in your garden, you might have to position your skip on the roadway outside it, in which instance you're almost certainly going to have to get a permit/licence from the local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Throwley will be more than happy to obtain this permit on your behalf, whilst some may require that you obtain this yourself. It's less hassle to use a skip hire provider who'll obtain the mandatory licence for you, because they know precisely where to go, what is needed and how to get it. Obviously the better option is to put the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily remove one or two fencing panels to get it in, because this eliminates the requirement of licences, permits and all that hassle. If you find you must get a permit yourself, it is quite simple to apply for one online. Skips put on a main highway will require safety lights, traffic cones and reflective markings to warn motorists and other road users, you can be fined up to £1000 if you do not take these measures.

Reserving a Skip: Getting the skip booked in and delivered to your property at the appropriate time is also crucial, because skip hire isn't cheap and skip hire providers in Throwley, will only let you tie up their skip for a couple of weeks, so you don't want the skip laying unused for days on end whilst you are waiting around for the work to begin. See if you can time the delivery of your skip to correspond with the start of your project or otherwise with the day that you start producing rubbish. That way, you're going to get the most value from your skip and avoid having the skip hire company harassing you to collect it before you're ready. When the skip is fully loaded and it is ready to be collected, give the skip hire company no less than two days notice since they will need to slot it into their busy timetable.

Filling a Skip: When putting rubbish into your skip, you should take care that you do this in the right way, try to pack the garbage in as tidily as you can. Besides being safer this will enable you to fit more trash into it. Make sure you only put allowed waste materials into the skip as the majority of skip hire providers in Throwley, will not accept certain types of materials like gas canisters, aerosols, car tyres, freezers, computer monitors, asbestos, toxic substances, TV's and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip as the driver can refuse to take the skip away if he believes it could be dangerous. Skip drivers will usually chuck a safety net over the top of the skip prior to loading it onto the truck, although this is mostly intended to secure the lighter items, therefore ensure that nothing large and hazardous is able to fall from the skip in transit.

In my opinion the most important decision to take when hiring a skip in Throwley, is to make sure that you select a skip hire company who will dispose of your waste responsibly. You, being the producer of the waste, are liable for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped a mile down the road, it's your door that the local council enforcement officers will likely be banging on with a hefty penalty fine in hand. Skip hire companies in Throwley should carry a "waste carriers license", so check that they have one of these and that it is current and valid. Aside from this there's not much legislation or regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, therefore it is something of a minefield identifying one that's legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire firm has been operating for several years in the Throwley, Kent area, it's likely that they are going to be a reasonable choice.

Throwley Skip Hire Prices

Please be aware that, as with many services, you can come across cowboys and rogue traders out there who will gleefully take your hard earned money, take your junk and take the mick, by fly-tipping it in the nearest Throwley lay-by. So, do not use such individuals, regardless if they're a couple of quid cheaper than their legitimate counterparts, given it could cost you significantly more in the long run (in the shape of local council fines!). This means that the cheapest skip hire in Throwley is not always the best.

Skip Hire Prices Throwley: Naturally, as I am certain you'll appreciate, skip hire prices can vary significantly according to the size of the skip you want, the area of the country in which you are hiring the skip and the skip company you use. As an approximate guide a mini (2 yard) skip will range from around £60 to £120, a midi skip (4 yard) should range from about £85 to £200, a builders skip (8 yard) will cost from approximately £140 to £300. A licence/permit for standing a skip on a highway should cost about £25 (in 2017).
