Guide to Hiring a Skip: When you've uncovered a good Wigtoft skip hire firm, there are going to be three important points that you'll need to take note of: where are you going to have the skip sited, what size skip will you require and when do you want it?

Skip Hire Wigtoft Lincolnshire

Sizes of Skip: You can find many different sizes of skips available for hire and most Wigtoft skip hire companies will offer whichever size you require for your upcoming waste removal, and in most cases it's a case of choosing between a mini skip (1-2 yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (3-4 yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a builders skip (six to eight cubic yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen yards/180-210 bin bags). The most popular skip size that you usually see outside houses in Wigtoft, when they are having refurbishments is the standard builders skip which is suitable for a good volume of junk, without having to overfill it or push boards or doors down the sides to make additional room.

The standard builders skip should be perfect for most home improvement projects, garden clearances, loft clearances and similar types of job. A great illustration of a project which a builders skip will be ideal for is when you're having a new bathroom or kitchen fitted and you will need to get rid of all the packaging from the new fittings and units, the old units and fittings and all the other garbage produced in the work.

Where to Position the Skip: You are going to need to have an appropriate position on your property to site the skip, a driveway is good, or maybe a section of lawn that you don't mind damaging. If there is not a driveway or equally appropriate area in your garden, you might need to put your skip on the roadway bordering your property, in which case you are in all probability going to need to obtain a permit from the local authority. Normally, skip hire companies in Wigtoft will be more than happy to acquire this permit on your behalf, whilst others could ask that you apply for this yourself. It's better to go with skip hire provider which will get the required permit/licence for you, because they know where to go, how to obtain it and what's required. Undoubtedly the preferred solution is to site the skip on your property, even if you have to temporarily take down a few fencing panels to squeeze it in, as this negates the requirement of permits and all that hassle. If you need to obtain a permit yourself, it is quite simple to submit an application for one on the web. Skips sited on a main road need to have safety lamps, traffic cones and reflective markings to warn motorists and other road users, you may be fined as much as £1000 if you fail to do this.

Reserving a Skip: Getting your skip ordered and delivered to your property at the appropriate time is likewise important, because hiring a skip isn't cheap and skip hire companies in Wigtoft, will only allow you to keep hold of the skip for a couple of weeks, this means you will not want the skip lying idle for several days while you are hanging around waiting for the builders to arrive. Try to time the delivery of the skip to coincide with the start of your project or at the very least with the day when you start accumulating rubbish. By doing it that way, you are going to get the maximum use out of the skip and reduce the prospect of the skip hire company pestering you to collect it before you are ready. When the skip is full and it is ready to be collected, try to give the skip hire company a minimum of 48 hours notice as they will need to fit the collection into their no doubt busy timetable.

Filling a Skip: When filling your skip, you need to make sure that this is done in the right way, try to pack your waste in as neatly as you can. Aside from being less dangerous this should also allow you to pack more stuff into it. Ensure you only put allowable articles into the skip as many skip hire companies in Wigtoft, won't let you tip certain kinds of rubbish like batteries, TV's, toxic materials, fridge/freezers, aerosols, computer monitors, tyres, gas canisters and plasterboard. Do not over fill your skip because the driver could refuse to take away the skip if he thinks it is unsafe. Skip drivers typically throw a safety net across the skip before lifting it onto the wagon, though this is mostly intended to retain lighter fly-away items, so ensure that nothing large and hazardous is able to tumble from the skip while being transported.

Maybe the most vital course of action when you are hiring a skip in Wigtoft, is to make sure that you pick a skip hire company who will dispose of your waste responsibly.

Skip hire companies in Wigtoft have to carry a valid "waste carriers license", so confirm that they've got one and that it is valid. Apart from this obligation there is no regulation controlling the skip hire business, therefore it is something of a minefield searching for one which is legitimate and responsible. Generally if a skip hire company has been conducting its business for several years in the Wigtoft, Lincolnshire area, it is likely that they're going to be a reasonable choice.
