Skip Sizes: There are going to be a number of sizes of skips readily available for hire and the majority of Tocher skip hire providers can provide whichever size you require for your planned waste removal job, and in general this is a case of choosing between a mini skip (one to two yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four yards/35-45 black bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 cubic yards/65-85 black bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 black bags). The most familiar skip size that you usually see outside properties in Tocher, when they are having improvements is the standard builders skip which will hold a good amount of garbage, without having to overfill it.

The builders skip will be just the job nearly all garden clearances, home improvements, loft clearances and those kind of jobs. A great example of a task that a builders skip will 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 units and fittings, the unwanted units and fittings and all of the additional rubbish produced during the process.

Where to Position the Skip: You'll need to find the perfect position on your property for siting the skip, a driveway is good, or perhaps an area of lawn that you do not care about damaging. If there isn't a drive or equally appropriate spot in your garden, you might need to put the skip on the roadway outside it, in which case you are almost certainly going to have to obtain a permit/licence from your local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Tocher will be happy to obtain this permit for you, while others may require that you apply for this yourself. It's much better to go with skip hire provider who will obtain the mandatory permit for you, as they know exactly what's required, how to get it and where to go. Of course the best solution is to put the skip somewhere on your property, even if you need to remove two or three fence panels to squeeze it in, because this eliminates the requirement for licences, permits and all that hassle. If you find you must get a permit yourself, it's quite simple to apply for one on the internet. Skips placed on main roads will require reflective markings, night safety lamps and traffic cones to warn motorists and other road users, you might be fined up to £1000 if you fail to do this.

Booking Your Skip: Getting the skip booked and delivered at the perfect time is also crucial, since skip hire isn't cheap and in general skip hire companies in Tocher, will only let you keep hold of the skip for 2 or 3 weeks, which means you don't want the skip standing there unused for a week while you are hanging around waiting for the builders to start work. Try and time the arrival of the skip to coincide with the start of your job or perhaps with the day you start producing rubbish. By doing this, you're going to get the maximum from your skip and minimize the risk of the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you're ready. Once the skip is full and you are ready to get it collected, try to give the skip hire company at least 48 hours notice because they will need to fit the collection into their busy timetable.

Filling Your Skip: When filling the skip, you need to be careful that you do this in the right way, see if you can pack the rubbish in as tidily as you can. As well as being safer this will also allow you to fit more rubbish into it. Be sure you only put allowed articles into your skip as many skip hire providers in Tocher, won't let you dump certain types of materials such as aerosols, gas canisters, toxic substances, freezers, asbestos, TV's, tyres, PC monitors and plasterboard. Don't over fill the skip because the driver can refuse to take away the skip if he deems it hazardous. Skip drivers will normally throw a safety net across the skip before lifting it onto their truck, although this is primarily intended to secure the lighter materials, so ensure that nothing hazardous and heavy can tumble off skip in transit.

Probably the most crucial action to take when you are hiring a skip in Tocher, is to be sure that you pick a skip hire company who'll dispose of your garbage responsibly. You, as the waste source, are liable for its disposal, so if it's fly-tipped half a mile down the road, it's your front door that local council enforcement officers will be knocking on with a sizeable fine in hand. Skip hire providers in Tocher should carry a valid "waste carriers license", so check that they have got one of these and that it is bona fide. Apart from this requirement there is little or no regulation controlling skip hire businesses, so it's something of a minefield identifying one that is responsible and legitimate.
