Skip Hire Burton-upon-Trent Staffordshire (DE13)

Having made a shortlist of decent skip hire services in Burton-upon-Trent, you will want to make some decisions that are crucial to sort out right from the start. Precisely where do you want the skip to be placed? On what date and time do you want the skip to be delivered? What size of skip is required?

Skip Sizes: Skip hire firms in the Burton-upon-Trent area offer a variety of different skip sizes, based upon your needs. Most commonly you will find a choice between a mini skip (1-2 yards/25-35 rubbish bags), a midi skip (three to four cubic yards/35-45 bin bags), a standard builders skip (6-8 yards/65-85 bin bags), and a large skip (twelve to fourteen cubic yards/180-210 bin bags). If you want to get a perception of the actual skip sizes, take a walk around Burton-upon-Trent, and on any day you'll encounter a number of houses with skips outside. The most commonplace size that you will observe will usually be the "builder's" skip, which appears to be the traditional size for general home refurbishments and building projects.

For house extension projects, garden clearances, home renovations and loft clearances, the basic builders skip is probably the preferred option, and to be honest this is the kind of skip that's most frequently seen in driveways around Burton-upon-Trent.

The Siting of Your Skip: When you're figuring out where you will set down the skip, there are various elements to keep in mind. If you've got a driveway that would be the most perfect place, or you may have a section of lawn that you could use (but don't forget it could easily get damaged). If you do not have a suitable place such as a private driveway or lawn area, you'll have to stand your skip on the main road outside your premises, in which case a licence is going to be necessary, and where you'll acquire one is the local council office. You will need to ask any prospective skip hire businesses in Burton-upon-Trent if they're prepared to include the purchase of a licence in their service, otherwise you're going to have to do this for yourself and endure all that hassle.

Going with a skip hire firm which will obtain that skip permit on your behalf is obviously preferable, since they know exactly how to get one, what is required and where to go. Circumventing the requirement for a licence by setting it on your property is plainly the ideal solution, even if you need to take down one or two fence panels to squeeze it in. On the plus side it's possible to submit an application for a skip permit online, if you do have to apply for one for yourself. Skips sited on main roads need to have night safety lights, reflective markings and traffic cones to alert motorists and other road users, you can be fined up to £1000 if you don't take these measures.

Reserving Your Skip: When you want to arrange skip hire in Burton-upon-Trent, one of the key things is thoughtful organisation. The ideal scenario is for your skip to be delivered to your home the day before the start of your project. In most cases, Burton-upon-Trent skip companies will give you approximately two weeks to top up your skip, after which time they will be looking to collect it. They'll sometimes charge extra if you need to keep the skip for longer than this, and it is advisable to make them aware in advance if this is likely to happen.

The price for hiring a skip in Burton-upon-Trent is by no means insubstantial, thus you want to avoid adding any extra to the rates where possible. You definitely don't want your skip to be standing idle, while you are waiting for work to commence. Therefore, to give yourself plenty of time to load up the skip, and avoid being harried by the hire company seeking to pick it up, just stick to these few basic guidelines.

Filling up the Skip: You have to take care when you're filling the skip up, to make sure that everything is crammed in as closely as possible. Use up all of the available space as punctiliously as you can by breaking down units and furniture for instance, that can otherwise use up a great deal of space. Aside from being less hazardous this should enable you to fit more garbage in.

It is vital that you're careful about just what you're tossing in the skip, given that certain specified things such as computer monitors or laptops, vehicle tyres, TV sets, fridge/freezers, batteries, solvents or paint, clinical waste, oil, asbestos, toxic materials, plasterboard, aerosols and gas cylinders aren't normally allowed. Also don't over fill the skip because the driver can refuse to take the skip away if he deems it dangerous. Skip drivers usually spread a safety net across the top of the skip prior to loading it onto the truck, though this is mostly meant to secure light fly-away materials, therefore make certain nothing hazardous and heavy can tumble off of the skip during transit.

The skip hire industry is largely unregulated, and the only way you can guarantee that a company is behaving responsibly, is if they are holders of a waste carriers and brokers licence. As the user of a skip, you'll wish to know that the rubbish you've thrown in your skip will be properly disposed of and recycled where possible. For that reason, you should make sure that the company in Burton-upon-Trent you hire your skip from, has a current waste carriers and brokers licence, and can show that they have an eco-friendly outlook on the recycling and disposal of waste.

Don't forget, that it will likely be your front door that the council enforcement officer will be knocking on, if your skip full of rubbish has found to have been illegally dumped. The best option is to keep to a trusted local company that's been trading for quite some time, and has a good reputation in the Burton-upon-Trent area. All that you are really looking for, is a way to get shot of your waste that is cost-effective and hassle-free.

Skip Bags Burton-upon-Trent

When any project in Burton-upon-Trent concludes there is something that has been created, and something else that has reached the end of its useful life - generally referred to as "rubbish". For many of us, getting rid of that waste responsibly can be a bit of an issue.

While climbing life's greasy pole we're constantly amassing possessions that both define exactly who we are and confirm how far we've progressed during our lifetime. Every now and again we get the urge to de-clutter our homes. No matter whether its giving the garden a decent tidy up or maybe blitzing those cupboards that you have been storing all your household junk in, it's very easy to create piles of bulky stuff that needs to be removed.

Not every home improvement or de-cluttering task creates a large skip-full of rubbish, and quite often there are only small quantities of waste to dispose of. Nevertheless, even for these small quantities of rubbish, there are skip hire alternatives in the form of skip bags.

Skip Bags - Reasons for Hiring

  • Removing old kitchen cabinets, installing a new bathroom, or other small refurbishment projects.
  • Tidying the cupboard under the stairs, emptying the garage, or clearing out the attic.
  • Having a clear out in your home ahead of moving.

The Advantages of Skip Bags

  • Skip bags are much more convenient since they can be picked up by and bought from the local DIY store.
  • They're available in sizes from 1-4yd³.
  • So long as a skip bag is within reach of the lorry high lift crane, it can generally be collected directly from your back or front garden.
  • No skip hire permit will generally be needed.
  • They come folded up, so they are easy to carry when empty.
  • Because they do not need to be put out on the road, they don't need to be lit up at night.

Skip bags can certainly save the day, when you need to dispose of some waste, but cannot warrant hiring a skip.
