Skip Hire Thurso Highland

Skip Sizes: You will find lots of different skip sizes available for rent and the majority of Thurso skip hire providers will offer whatever size you want for your planned waste removal task, and for most people it's a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a standard builders skip (six to eight cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (12-14 yards/180-210 bin bags). The commonest skip that you regularly see outside properties in Thurso, when they are doing remodeling is the standard builders skip which will hold a substantial volume of junk, without having to overfill it or shove boards down the sides to make more space.

The builders skip should be ideal for the majority of home improvement projects, garden clearances, loft clearances and similar types of job. A good illustration of an undertaking which a builders skip will be right for is if you are replacing a kitchen or bathroom and you need to get rid of all the unwanted units and fittings, the packing from the new fittings and units and all of the other trash generated in the process.

Positioning the Skip: You'll need a suitable place on your property to site the skip, a driveway is perfect, or an area of lawn which you don't mind damaging. If you haven't got a driveway or suitable space in your garden, you might need to put the skip on the road bordering it, in which case you're probably going to need to get a licence from the local council. Nearly all skip hire companies in Thurso will obtain this permit for you, whilst others may require that you get this yourself. It's better to go with skip hire firm who will obtain the required licence for you, since they know where to apply, what's required and how to get it. Obviously your best solution is to site the skip somewhere on your property, even if you need to temporarily take down a few fencing panels to fit it in, because this avoids the requirement for permits, licences and all that bother. If you find you have to obtain a licence yourself, it is fairly simple to apply for one on the web. Skips sited on main roads will require night safety lamps, traffic cones and reflective markers to alert other road users, and you may be fined up to £1000 if you do not do this.

Arranging a Skip: Getting your skip reserved and delivered at the correct time is likewise critical, since hiring a skip is not cheap and in general skip hire providers in Thurso, will only let you tie up their skip for two or three weeks, this means you wouldn't want the skip lying unused for several days whilst you are waiting for the work to start. Try and time the arrival of the skip to coincide with the starting day of the project or otherwise with the day that you begin generating rubbish. By doing it this way, you'll get the most out of the skip and reduce the chances of the skip hire company harassing you to pick it up before you're ready. Once the skip is fully loaded and it's ready to be collected, allow the skip hire company at least two days notice since they will need to slot it into their busy agenda.

Filling Your Skip: When it comes to filling your skip, you need to take care that this is done correctly, endeavor to stack the trash in as tidily as you can. Besides being safer this should allow you to pack more garbage in. Make sure that you only put allowed items into the skip as the majority of skip hire firms in Thurso, will not accept certain sorts of garbage such as PC monitors, asbestos, aerosols, gas canisters, car tyres, televisions, fridge/freezers, toxic substances and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip as the driver may refuse to take the skip away if he deems it to be hazardous. Skip drivers will usually spread a safety net over the top of the skip prior to lifting it up onto the wagon, although this is primarily intended to retain the lighter items, so ensure that nothing hazardous and large can tumble from the skip during transit.

Probably the most important thing to do when you are hiring a skip in Thurso, is to make sure that you use a skip hire firm who'll dispose of your trash responsibly. You, as the producer of the waste, are liable for its disposal, therefore if it's fly-tipped a mile along the road, it is your door that council enforcement officers will doubtless be knocking on with a sizeable penalty fine. Skip hire companies in Thurso should carry a valid "waste carriers license", so check that they have got one of these and that it is valid. Apart from this there's hardly any regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, so it is not always plain sailing finding one that is legitimate and responsible.
