Skip Hire - The Fundamentals of Hiring a Skip Hire Company

People hire skips for various reasons. Having a spring clear out, removing an old kitchen or toilet, wanting to remove tons of garden waste are all factors why people hire skips.

Hiring a skip is a pretty easy process, even more so now with several companies offering the option of booking your skip online. Generally the process is as follows. Reserve the hiring of your skip from a skip hire company giving them a day and time you would like your skip delivered and the size of skip you require. Your dumpster should arrive on the day you specified. You can usually keep the dumpster for as long as is required to fill it with your waste. As soon as you skip is prepared for removal, merely give the skip hire company 48 hours notice of when you would like your skip accumulated.

Another option many skip hire companies offer is a 'wait and load' service. Therefore, the skip will be delivered and the driver will wait while you load it and then take it away. This really is ideal if you have a pile of waste prepared for load and really don't require the skip for an extended period of time.

If there is no room on your own property for the skip it'll need to be set in the one-time offer public road / pavement. For a skip to be set in the public road/pavement a license from the council is required. Usually this permit can be organized by the skip hire company when you buy your skip, although some councils insist that the applicant for the permit must be the man hiring the skip. Also, if the skip is to be set on the road it is the duty of the man hiring the skip to ensure it has to suitable warning lights attached. When ordering the skip these lights can usually be hired from the skip hire company.

The skip must not be overloaded. This could cause difficulties in picking up the dumpster and additionally is unsafe the to motorists and pedestrians. If the skip is overloaded the skip hire company typically reserve the right to 'level' the waste on picking up the skip if the skip is deemed unsuitable for transport.

Skips come in many different sizes. The following dimension is a Midi Skip that's ideal of kitchen and toilet refits and can hold up to 3 cubic metres. The most familiar skip size is what is called a Contractors Skip it may hold up to 4.6 cubic metres of waste (as much as 50 60 bin bags) and is accessible everywhere in the UK. There are larger skip sizes available but several of those are not appropriate for very heavy waste due to the weight of the fully loaded skip.

Whatever you require your skip for so long so you work with a reputable company your skip hire experience should be hassle free.
