Skip Hire - The Principles of Hiring a Skip Hire Company

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

Hiring a skip is a fairly simple procedure, even more so today with several companies providing the choice of reserving your skip online. Usually the procedure is as follows. Reserve the hiring of your skip from a skip hire business giving them a time and date you would like your skip delivered and the size of skip you require. Your skip should arrive on the date you specified. You can generally keep the skip for as long as is needed to fill it with your waste. Simply give the skip hire business 48 hours notice of when you would like your skip collected, once you skip is ready for removal.

This really is ideal if there is a pile of waste ready for load and do not require the skip for an extended time period.

It's going to have to be placed in the public road / pavement if there is no room on your here. own property for the skip. For a skip to be placed in the public road/pavement a permit from the council is required. Although some councils insist that the applicant for the permit should be the man hiring the skip, usually this permit can be arranged by when you buy your skip the skip hire business. Additionally, if the skip is to be placed on the road it's the duty of the man selecting the skip to ensure it has to suitable warning lights attached. These lights can generally be hired from the skip hire business when ordering the skip.

You can fill your skip with pretty much anything with the exception of a few items these contain aerosols, gas canisters, computer monitors, televisions, full paint cans, food waste, tyres, fridges or freezers.



The skip must not be overloaded. This can cause difficulties in picking up the skip and also is risky to pedestrians and motorists.

Skips come in many different sizes. The next dimension is a Midi Skip that's ideal of kitchen and bathroom refits and can take up to 3 cubic metres. The most common skip size is what is known as a Builders 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 bigger skip sizes available but some of these are not suitable for very heavy waste due to the weight of the fully loaded skip.

Whatever you require your skip for so long so you use a reputable business your skip hire experience should be hassle free.
