Skips are not only used by builders, they can be useful for household waste, garden waste and more. There are so many factors to take into consideration when you are thinking of Walsall skip hire. The first is the price. Price may be the break or make or your decision.
Due to the built up area of Walsall there aren’t that many skip hire companies providing this type of service, yet due to the lack of properties available, more and more homeowners are choosing to remodel and renovate to make room for their growing families. This means you should try and find at least three companies providing this service, this enables you to compare them against each other and review each company in detail to find the one you feel will provide you with the highest level of service and support.
Price should not be your only deciding factor, paying slightly more for a company that can provide you with the right size skip, will handle all the permits and will deliver and collect the skip is more important than paying a lower price for a service you cannot rely on. At the same time, look for skip hire companies that will provide you with cost effective skip solutions.
Consider how long you will need the skip. Most Walsall skip hire companies require you take the skip for a set period of time; this can be anything from one to two weeks. Ensure you choose a company that will collect the skip sooner if you are finished and have filled it up. Often you may only need it for a few days, for a house clearance, therefore having it outside on the street for one or more weeks is an eye sore and not practical.
Always check with the Walsall skip hire companies how much they charge for delivery and collection. Many companies include this in their price, but there are those that charge extra for the service, which can leave you with a larger bill than anticipated. Also ensure that they dispose of any waste in an environmentally friendly way.
Ideally the skip hire company you choose will separate the waste, recycling as much as they can to reduce the impact on landfills and provide you with an environmentally friendly service you can rely on.
Remember that you will need a permit for Walsall skip hire. This is essential and without it, you could be faced with a heavy fine from your local council. In many cases the skip hire company will arrange the permit on your behalf. The company should also ensure that the skip is well-lit at night and has the necessary markings to make it visible to pedestrian and drivers on the road at all times, this can be fluorescent tape, lights and cones. Failure to correctly mark and light the skip can also result in a heavy fine of up to one thousand Pounds Sterling. Bear in mind if you are placing the skip on your own private property, such as your driveway or in your garden, a permit is not required.
Ensure when you choose the location of your skip, you leave enough room for the truck to get in front of the item on the road to delivery and collect. Finally, ensure you empty the skip as soon as it is full, rather than leaving it filled up on the road for weeks at a time.
