Skip Hire Walton Leicestershire

Skip Hire Walton Leicestershire: If you happen to be organizing decluttering your attic, fitting a new kitchen, tidying up your garden or some home improvements, there is a fair likelihood that you'll be creating a whole lot of waste which will need disposing of. Now, you may be able to put a fair amount of it in your car and take it to a nearby waste tip in Walton, but this can take time, will likely mess up or damage your car, and is restricted to what you're able to easily fit in the boot. The most popular option for most folk in Walton is to hire a skip, and have all that rubbish lugged away, re-cycled and dumped properly. If you decide that this is the best idea for you, then your initial job is to search out a reputable company who do skip hire in Walton, and arrange to have a skip delivered to your home.

Skip Hire Basics: When you have discovered a good Walton skip hire company, there are three principal points that you need to consider: where are you going to site it, what size of skip will you require and when do you need the skip?

Skip Hire Walton Leicestershire

Skip Sizes: You'll find a range of different skip sizes readily available for rent and most Walton skip hire providers can provide whichever size you need for your planned waste removal, and for most it is a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 bin bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 black bags), a builders skip (six to eight cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 bin bags). The most frequently used skip size which you usually see outside properties in Walton, when they are having improvements is the builders skip which is suitable for a respectable volume of rubbish, without having to overfill it.

The builders skip should be perfect for most home improvement projects, garden clearances, attic clearances and those types of jobs. A great example of an assignment that a builders skip will be suitable for is if you're having a new bathroom or kitchen fitted and it is necessary to dispose of all the packaging from the new units and fittings, the old unwanted fittings and units and all of the other garbage produced during the process.

Positioning the Skip: You will need to have a suitable place on your property where you can site the skip, a driveway is best, or a section of lawn that you don't care about damaging. If there is not a driveway or suitable area in your garden, you may have to place your skip on the street outside your property, in which instance you are almost certainly going to have to obtain a licence from your local council. Generally, skip hire companies in Walton will get this licence on your behalf, whilst some could ask that you apply for this yourself. It is less hassle to use a skip hire company who'll obtain the required licence/permit for you, because they know exactly how to get it, where to apply and what you need. Needless to say the preferred option is to site the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily take down two or three fence panels to get it in, as this negates the requirement for permits and all that hassle. If you do have to obtain a licence yourself, it is quite simple to apply for one on the web. Skips placed on a main highway will require reflective markings, traffic cones and safety lights to alert other road users, you might be fined up to £1000 if you do not take these precautions.

Reserving Your Skip: Getting the skip booked in and delivered at the appropriate time is also critical, given that hiring a skip isn't cheap and generally skip hire providers in Walton, will only let you keep hold of the skip for 2 or 3 weeks, so you do not want the skip sitting there idle for several days whilst you're hanging around waiting for the work to start. Try to time the arrival of the skip to correspond with the starting day of your project or at best with the day you start producing rubbish. By doing it this way, you are going to get the most out of the skip and reduce the chances of the skip hire company pestering you to pick it up before you're ready. Once the skip is loaded and it's ready to be picked up, try to give the skip hire company at least 2 days notice because they will have to fit it into their busy agenda.

Filling the Skip: When putting rubbish into your skip, you must be careful that you do this correctly, see if you can stack your rubbish in as snugly as possible. Apart from being less hazardous this should allow you to jam more trash into it. Ensure you only put allowable articles into your skip since most skip hire firms in Walton, won't let you dump certain kinds of garbage including toxic materials, televisions, gas canisters, PC monitors, fridges, full paint cans, aerosols, tyres and plasterboard. Also don't over fill the skip as the driver may refuse to take the skip away if he thinks it is dangerous. Skip drivers usually chuck a safety net across the top of the skip before loading it onto the lorry, though this is primarily to secure lighter fly-away items, so make sure nothing large and dangerous is able to tumble from the skip in transit.

Probably the most essential thing to do when hiring a skip in Walton, is to be sure that you choose a skip hire firm who will get rid of your rubbish responsibly. You, as the source of the waste, are liable for its disposal, so if it's fly-tipped a mile down the road, it's your door that council enforcement officers will doubtless be rapping on with a hefty fine in hand. Skip hire providers in Walton have to carry a "waste carriers license", so check that they've got one of these and that it is current. Aside from this there is little or no regulation applicable to skip hire businesses, therefore it is not always straightforward finding one that's legitimate and responsible. Usually if a skip hire company has been conducting business for several years in the Walton, Leicestershire area, it's very likely that they'll be a good choice.

This means that the cheapest skip hire in Walton is not necessarily the best.
