Ash Waste Removal Services

Skip Hire Ash Surrey: If you're continuously amassing junk in your house and garden, you're most certainly not alone - it's a dilemma that affects an awful lot of householders in Ash. Repeatedly having to load up your vehicle and visit the local tip is not much fun, and it's also easy to screw up or damage your car if you're not very careful. Having to deal with the accumulation of general day to day rubbish is problem enough, but when clearing your garden, doing home improvements or cleaning out the shed is involved, the whole process can overwhelm you.

Free Ash Skip Hire Quotes

The alternative approach to this issue if you have lots of rubbish is to rent a skip and get all that crap professionally taken away, re-cycled and discarded in a responsible manner, so you don't have to worry about it. On the whole this is probably the ideal solution, but isn't always the end of your problems, as you'll now have to hunt for a trustworthy Ash skip hire company, from whom you can arrange your skip and have it transported to your property.

Skip Hire Ash Surrey (GU12)

When a list of potential skip hire companies in Ash has been prepared, you will have to make 3 specific decisions - Precisely where do you want the skip to be placed? What size of skip do you need? On which day and time do you want your skip to be delivered?.

Sizes of Skip: There are actually lots of different skip sizes available for rent and the majority of Ash skip hire companies will provide whatever size you want for your waste disposal job, and in general it is a choice between a mini skip (1-2 cubic yards/25-35 black bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 rubbish bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 rubbish bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 rubbish bags). The most widespread skip which you often see outside properties in Ash, when they are having refurbishing is the standard builders skip which can hold a considerable quantity of junk, without having to overfill it.

For home renovations, garden clearances, attic clearances and house extension projects, the standard builders skip is probably the best option, and in all honesty this is the style of skip that is most commonly seen around the streets of Ash.

Siting the Skip: When you're determining where you should plonk the skip, there are several matters to contemplate. If you have a private drive that would be the best spot, or you may have a patch of lawn which you could use (but be aware it can easily suffer damage). If you do not have a driveway or suitable spot on your property, you may have to place the skip on the main road bordering it, in which case you are almost certainly going to have to obtain a licence/permit from your local authority. You might have to acquire this yourself, however many Ash skip hire companies will obtain this licence on your behalf.

As you can imagine, if you choose a skip company in Ash that is willing to get a permit for you, that will be a lot less hassle for you. You'll need to fill out an online form for a permit, if you can't find a local skip hire company that does this, and actually it's quite a straightforward process. Naturally, you'll not need to go through this hassle if you're able to sit the skip within the boundary of your property, which is without doubt the preferable option.

You could incur up to a one thousand pound fine for setting a skip on the road without the appropriate permit, and there are additional fines for failing to put the appropriate safety measures in place i.e. cones, reflective markers and safety lighting. It is well worth moving things around if feasible, and place the skip on your own property.

A permit for standing a skip on a footpath, grass verge, pathway or road varies in cost from region to region, and may also be based upon the size of the skip you are renting. When this was written (2021) the price of a skip skip licence is around £100 on average, however in your area it may be anywhere between thirty and one hundred and sixty pounds for a conventional builders skip. A skip permit is usually time limited, and will often be valid for a month, although renewals can be bought when you need the skip for longer than this. Despite the fact that it only takes 2 or 3 minutes to complete an online licence application, you will need to wait around five days for it to be processed. Implied or tacit permission is not sufficient, so until you've got verification, don't press ahead with the skip installation. If you decide to put a skip on a road, verge or pavement without purchasing the appropriate licence, you will be fined and could also be be required to pay for a retrospective skip permit at a substantially inflated fee.

Skip Hire Quotes Ash (01252)

Booking a Skip: Thoughtful organisation is paramount when it comes to reserving your skip in Ash. The perfect scenario is for the skip to be delivered to your home the day before your project begins. In most cases, Ash skip companies will give you around fourteen days to fill up the skip, after which they'll be hoping to pick it up. If you inform them in advance, they're sometimes willing to prolong this, but often they might charge you more.

The cost of Ash skip hire is in no way negligible, so you need to avoid adding any extra to the fees where possible. You most certainly don't want your skip to be standing empty, while you're waiting for work to commence. By following these few simple tips, you won't get pressurised by the company wanting to collect their skip, and you will give yourself sufficient time to dispose of all your waste.

Cheap Skip Hire Companies in Ash

Loading Your Skip: The common opinion with most householders in Ash is that when they have the skip in position, they can simply dump any items that they like in there, and it will all get carted away without any issues. That couldn't be further from the truth, seeing that there are certain items are unacceptable, and constraints on what can and can't go into your skip. Most skip rental companies ask that batteries, freezers, plasterboard, PC monitors, gas canisters or bottles, asbestos, TV's, paint or solvents, clinical waste, air-conditioning units, aerosols, toxic substances and tyres, aren't put in a skip. This is going to be mentioned in the company's Ts & Cs.

The sort of rubbish you bung into the skip isn't the only concern, you will also need to be mindful of the rules on what quantities can go into it. All skips should have a fill line which shows a safe level to which the skip can be loaded. Some homeowners in Ash try using "greedy boards" to cram more into the skip, but be careful of doing this, since some pick-up drivers may refuse to take it away.

If you can maybe stack up the junk beforehand, that will be incredibly useful, as you'll appreciate exactly how much waste you have and be in a better position to order the right size skip. To secure lighter, flyaway items, a loaded skip will normally have a safety net or cover fitted over it when it's being transported, this is for extra safety.

In my opinion the foremost move to make when hiring a skip in Ash, is to make sure that you select a skip hire company who will get rid of your waste responsibly. It's going to be your front door which the local authority enforcement officials are going to be rapping on with a hefty fine, if your trash is fly-tipped five hundred yards from your home. You will know that any local Ash rental company can be relied on if they are able to show you a valid "waste carriers licence". There is very little regulation apart from this licence which controls the skip rental sector, so you must be wary. Skip companies in Ash who have been operating their business for many years are definitely the ones that you should give preference to.

Ash Skip Hire Prices (GU12)

Be aware that, as with some other professional services, you might come across rogue traders and cowboys in your area who will gladly take your money, take away your rubbish and take the mick, by fly-tipping it in the nearest Ash lay-by. Consequently, employing these kinds of individuals will cost you an awful lot more ultimately (in the form of council fines!), even though they might at first appear cheaper than their reputable counterparts. What this actually shows is the fact that the cheapest skip hire Ash may not always be the best skip hire Ash.

Skip Hire Prices: There is of course no set fee for skip hire, and factors like where in the UK you live, whether or not you will need a skip permit, how long you need it for and the size of skip you need will all have an impact on the final cost of your skip hire.

As a rough guide a mini (2 yard) skip will range in price from about £60 to £120, a midi skip (4 yard) will range in price from approximately £85 to £200, a builders (8 yard) skip will range from approximately £140 to £300.

Skips - What Are They?

A skip (skip bin or dumpster) is a large container with an open top, designed especially for loading onto a special kind of lorry. Most skips have a unique trapezoid shape, the smaller edge on either end is lower than the middle to make for easier loading. Channeling deposited waste towards the centre, there is a sloping floor or wall at both ends of the skip.

Generally, skips in Ash will have 2 lifting lugs on either side onto which strong chains are attached to permit the skip to be lifted onto and off a skip lorry by means of hydraulic arms. To make loading and unloading simpler, there will sometimes be a large hinged door at one end of the skip, in which case it will normally be referred to as a "drop door skip". The size of skip bins can vary greatly based upon their use, and the holding capacity can range from two yards to forty yards. Made to hold up against rough use by labourers and tradespeople, skips are durable and sturdy.

The word "skip" is a predominantly British term, although it may be encountered in New Zealand, Australia and Ireland. Although not exactly the same thing, in the United States of America they are called debris boxes or dumpsters.

Hiring a Skip in Ash - Five Rules to Follow

We all know the feeling, when you have to find a tradesman or service in Ash and you realise you don't even know the most basic questions to ask. How do you know which one to go for? Skip Hire is no different. It's just another one of those every day, mundane parts of life we don't even consider until we have a garden to clear, are moving house, completing home renovations, or one doing one of the many other jobs when there just too much waste for you to dispose of it yourself. How do I find an affordable reliable skip hire company in Ash. So, where do you start? As with many local services, web searches and telephone directories have dozens upon dozens of companies listed in the Ash area. If you have never hired from one of these companies or do not have a trusted recommendation to go on often the choice is down to the lowest price or pure chance. To take some of the risk away, follow these five rules and you can be safe in the knowledge you have made a fully informed choice and have minimized the risk of any mishaps.

Do your research: It's not glamorous, it's not even surprising really is it. As with anything in life, you have to do your research first. A web search is a great place to start. I believe you can tell a lot about a company from the way it presents itself on the web. Its a skip we're looking for, so I don't expect fancy but I would expect a certain level of professionalism and basic company information. The same can be applied to telephone directory skip hire ads. I wouldn't read too much into them, but an obvious error would make me cautious.

You don't have to just follow Ads: This is linked to doing you research but I really feel this is an important rule to follow in itself. Why not look at page 2 or 3? I often find when looking for a local service most of the top Google (other search engine available) results and ads tend to be larger nationwide companies with the budget to tie up the top keywords. I'll say it again, we are hiring a skip, why would you want to deal with a call centre in Bristol when you need a skip in Ash. Click past the first page, ignore the ads, try having a look at some of the smaller companies out there. Experience has taught me they can be far more accommodating to your needs.

Narrow your search down: Use the Contact Forms. Now you've compiled a list of Ash skip hire companies you're going to need to narrow you choices down. Unfortunately, that means getting in touch and asking questions. Many of the skip hire companies will have contact forms on their websites. Take advantage of them. They are a great time saver and have the added bonus of taking any over the phone, sales pressure away. It gives you the chance to ask the questions you need without being pushed into making a decision.

Where is my waste going? It's often overlooked but in today's climate it's more important than ever to consider what's going to happen to your waste. It true to say that the waste is the responsibility of the skip hire company once collected, but we still have a responsibility, albeit moral, to ask questions before we hand it over. Do they have a recycling centre? Are the able to provide an audit trail? Are they fully accredited? Any reputable company will be happy to answer any questions you have about there waste disposal procedures. Any skip hire company refusing to has something to hide. So don't be afraid to ask.

Get your quotes, then haggle: You've identified the companies that suit your needs so all that's left is to get your quotes and agree a price. I would always recommend you obtain at least 6 quotes and always use the phone, the personal touch can make the difference when agreeing the price. Once you have your quotes, don't be afraid to go back and ask for a lower price. Maybe the company you prefer is £5 more expensive. Well tell them. More often than not prices for skip hire in Ash are negotiable on a hire by hire basis.

Apply these rules to your search for a skip hire company in Ash and you can be sure to have done your research, asked the questions you needed to and found the right skip hire company for you.

Grabber Truck Hire Ash

Grab Lorry Hire Ash UK (01252)

Bringing in a grab truck is another solution to waste removal especially when space or accessibility for a conventional skip is restricted. This could be especially sensible for garden clearances and that sort of project, where the unwanted waste can simply be piled up at the end of the garden. If a grab lorry can get quite close to your garden in Ash, it will be able to pick up a huge volume of rubbish in just a couple of scoops, and save you the hassle of having to fill a skip and ensure it is safe.

Handling between 1 and 14 cubic meters of waste in one outing, a grabber truck can carry many different materials such as topsoil, paving slabs, rubble, rocks, concrete, garden waste, bricks and hardcore. This type of service is sometimes referred to as "grab hire and muck away", which fairly accurately describes what is provided, typically using a 32 ton lorry which can haul up to 16 tonnes of waste material.

Waste Carrier Licence

In Jan 2014 the legislation for transporting waste products was changed all around Britain. After this date, you were legally required to register as a waste carrier, if you carry any form of waste even in small quantities. Fines of up to £5000 can be imposed on anyone who fails to do this. The combined endeavours of both the Environment Agency and local authorities have led to a number of prosecutions under this legislation. The common premise is that only businesses whose principal function is waste disposal and transfer would be affected by this legislation, however that isn't the case. In fact any company or individual disposing of, moving, selling, buying or transporting waste or making arrangements for others to carry this out in their stead, must abide by this legislation.

Ash Skip Hire Questions

Ash Skip Hire Questions

A couple of weeks back I thought I'd take a look at the types of questions that homeowners in Ash ask in relation to skip hire.

"What is the smallest skip I can hire?" "If I hire a skip can I put anything in it?" "How much would it cost to hire a small skip bin?" "If I hire a skip bin how long can I keep it for?"
