Skip Hire Tips
Skips are hired because of several reasons. Some of these reasons are like having spring clear out, removing an old kitchen or bathroom and also to remove lots of garden waste. The process of hiring a skip is easy. You may book your skip online because there are many companies that provide that option and that’s why the process is easy. When you choose to hire to skip from a hire company, you will have to book first. Giving them the date and time your skip you would like to be delivered is necessary and more to that, the size of skip you need will also be necessary. They will deliver your skip on that date you will specify. As long as you fill the skip with your trash, you can keep it even for months.
Notifying the skip hire company on when you would like your skip to be collected is necessary after the skip is ready for removal. Another option you may get from these skip hire company is waiting and load service. Wait and load service means that the skip is delivered to you and then you load it as the driver is waiting. Then after you have to load it, he will take it away. If you have a collection of waste ready for loading particularly if you don’t need the skip for a longer time, this is the best option.
If you have insufficient space on your property for the skip, you will have to place it on the public road or pavement. If you do that, you will need to get a permit from a council. Many times, this permit is arranged by the skip hire company when you order your skip. The application for the permit is sometimes made by the person hiring the skip because some councils do not let hire companies do that.
The person hiring the skip is the one who should be accountable for making sure the skip has proper warning lights attached if the skip is placed on the road. When ordering the skip, these types of lights are typically hired from the skip hire company. You may fill your skip with anything although there are items that are not supposed to be kept there. Items that you should not keep in your skip are like the aerosols, gas canisters, computer monitors, televisions, full paint cans, and food waste.
However, you should not overload the skip. It is because overloading can cause problems in picking up the skip or harm pedestrians and motorists. It is not allowed to load skip in places that are above the top of walls of the skip. The right to level the waste is given by skip hire companies in cases where the skip is overloaded.
