    Skip hire can make cumbersome jobs more straightforward. It means fewer rubbish bags and debris lying about, ensuring that work areas are kept clear. However, if this your first time looking at a skip hire in Croydon, then you may be wondering as to what size skip you should opt for. Small skip hire prices will often be lower, but the price you pay shouldn’t be the deciding factor. Skips are available in a selection of sizes, meaning that you should focus more on the space you need, otherwise you could end up spending more in skip hire as a result. The Mini Skip As the name would suggest, the mini skip is the smallest type of skip available. The space available is two cubic meters and can hold the equivalent of 22 full refuse sacks. If you have a DIY project, or a small amount of garden waste to dispose of, then the mini skip should be able to meet your needs. The mini skip is among the cheaper options, as small skip hire prices differ to that of larger alternatives, but it’s important to ensure that the skip you use is suitable for the task at hand. The Midi Skip If you have a larger clearance job, then it stands to reason that you will need more space. A midi skip allows offers four cubic yards of space, and is ideal for those larger items that may not fit in a mini skip. An example of this can be old doors that need to be disposed of. It is also suitable for large landscaping jobs. As a guise, a midi skip will hold approximately 45 full refuse sacks of waste. Builder’s Skip When working on a property, there can be high levels of debris that need to be disposed of. The builder’s skip is often used by those looking to get rid of soil, concrete and rubble easily. The job is often made easier thanks to the front door included on some builder’s skips, which allows for easy access. This type of skip can also be used to dispose of medium levels of household and gardening waste. Larger Projects There can be many reasons as to why people opt for skip hire in Croydon, and there can be times when something larger is needed. For example, a large house clearance can mean a huge amount of waste which can be too cumbersome for smaller skips. Fortunately, there are larger skips available that start from 8yd3 which look to contend with the more demanding aspects of waste removal. Larger skip hire is often used for house extensions, renovations and clearances, but the possibilities are endless. Large skip hire prices are more expensive than that of smaller alternatives, but is more cost-effective than the when it comes to bigger jobs that will produce more waste. Still Not Sure? Of course, there can be times where you’re just not sure as to why type of skip hire is required. Fortunately, you can discuss your project in more detail by speaking to WasteBusters Skip Hire directly.

Make sure you put your skip in a safe place One of the first things that you need to do is to put the skip you have hired in a safe place. Depending upon your choice of the skip you’ve chosen, you can either have a large model or a smaller one. In any instance, it should be placed on the firm ground and not anywhere which is going to cause an accident. A driveway or land which is part of your property is always a good idea, as well as any areas which are away from roads and places where people can park. Do not overfill the skip A common mistake that people make is to overfill their skip, which is illegal. If the materials inside the skip rise above the sides, it is against the law for a skip hire company to transport it the skip anywhere on the roads, in case the waste were to fall off and obscure the road or strike passing vehicles. Make sure you load the skip correctly When it comes to loading your skip from a skip hire Sutton, you want to make sure that you’re loading it in the best possible way. This is accomplished by putting all of the heavy items into the skip first, and allowing loose sediment and smaller waste to fill the gaps and thus create a level surface. This ensures that there’s no sudden collapses or damages caused while the skip is moving. Overall, these are just a few safety tips for when you hire a skip in Sutton. Skips are valuable resources and should be used wisely, to ensure that you have an efficient way of getting rid of your rubbish, but the waste is moved in such a way that protects the people around you and also follows all the legal procedures for skip transportation and usage.

    0.00 of 0 votes

    Whether you’re in the business of renovating old properties and reselling them, or you just want to give your home that much-needed makeover, there’s no denying that a great deal of work will be involved. While there are aspects of renovating properties that are enjoyable, there are others that are less appealing. One such chore can be the clearing of rubbish. If you’ve ever tried to get rid of debris and loose ends using bags or bins, then you will only be too aware that it can be a laborious and time-consuming task, which is why many decide to employ the services of reliable skip hire company. If you’re a seasoned renovator, then you’ll be familiar with the process and as to what kind of skip will be required and how long you’ll need it for. However, if this is your first time, there are some considerations to make before deciding on skip hire. Consider the Size of the Project For a skip to be of benefit during a renovation project, you need to consider the size of the project. For example, if you’ve recently bought an old property that needs clearing out, then you may need to organise two skip hires at separate intervals. You also need to look at what materials will be disposed of, as larger items can mean the skip is filled relatively quickly. If you considered the options, but you’re still not sure which solution is for you, then ensure you use a skip hire company in Croydon that is of good repute. Not only will it be able to provide you with excellent customer service, but it can also offer some useful information when deciding as to which solution is best suited to you. Ensure You Use a Skip Hire Company That Offers True Value The great things about skip hire is that the right company will offer a solution that’s tailored to your specific needs. This includes how long you need the skip for, as well as the size of the skip. This means there is no set cost. It can be tempting to opt for the cheapest skip hire company in Croydon, and while there is nothing wrong in finding a great deal, you need to look at the service on offer. When it comes to skip hire, many companies operate in the right way, but there will always be those that don’t offer the service they should. So, while a certain hire company may appear cheaper, there could be more cost involved if the correct procedures aren’t followed. Remember There Are Some Items You Can’t Dispose Of While skips are an affordable and versatile way of ensuring our renovations stay up-to-date, we need to ensure we’re not placing anything in the skips that could be deemed hazardous, such as petrol, paint, fridges, televisions any items that contain hazardous substances, as there are separate processes used to ensure that such items are disposed of safely. Skip hire is a great way of ensuring your project stays on track, and makes the surrounding environment much safer. You can also be confident that your waste is being disposed of in the right way.

  • 0 The Most Valuable Things Ever Found In A Skip

    Skips often have a lot of strange and exotic items in them from the contents of someone’s house, yet we’ve never found anything during our skip hire Croydon. However, there have been moments where some precious things have been saved from a skip, and we’re taking a look at some of them. Antique Movies There’s no way to ever tell with these kinds of things, but can you imagine looking in a skip and finding two pieces of cinematic history? Well, that is what one man did. His salvage from a skip found him holding two cinematic pieces from the time of actor Peter Seller from 1957. They were presumed lost forever, but thanks to his quick eye, they were found and saved. A motorcycle Now, we know what you’re thinking. How can you lose a bike in a skip? If you went with a skip hire Croydon, you’d have a lot of room, but not that much. No, this skip in question yielded a motorbike for the lucky person who found it, which was then valued at around £250,000, and dates back to the 1920’s. £1500 in cash Money is, to be honest, one of the last things you would expect to find within a skip, but someone did. A worker for a refuse collection service found £1500 in cash hidden within a shoe which had been thrown away. The shoe belonged to an elderly lady who had dementia and had been thrown out by a well-meaning but uninformed relative. The woman was eventually tracked down, and the money returned, but a well done to the worker who spotted it, to begin with. A caravan Now, we’re not entirely sure how this even happened, but someone elected to dispose of their caravan by balancing it on top of the skip. No, you didn’t read that incorrectly. Understandably, the skip hire company in question elected not to move it until it had been broken down to a more acceptable size. Overall, these have been some of the most valuable things which have ever been found in a skip, or even on top of a skip as the case may be. If you’re looking for skip hire Croydon, then Wastebusters can help you, by providing you with a well-sized skip to suit all of your needs and requirements.

  • 0 Things You Should Not Put in a Skip

    0.00 of 0 votes

    You can put many different things in a skip. From general waste, to garden materials, the skip is a very useful resource to be able to have. However, not everything you have in your waste can be put into a skip. We’re taking a look at the things which you put into a skip. Fridges One of the first things you’ll find yourself unable to put into a skip is your fridge. The fridges that a lot of people have in their homes frequently contain many harmful chemicals which require it to be safely disposed of. You can get rid of one by selling it to a specialist, or even contacting a waste disposal service, but you definitely cannot put it into your skip. Anything with asbestos Asbestos is definitely a dangerous material to be having inside a home, or even outside of it. The fibres inside the asbestos are toxic to the human system, and they can also lie dormant inside the circulatory system for years without being discovered. This means that you can’t just chuck something with asbestos onto a pile of rubbish inside a skip. The materials need to be disposed of in a safe and careful manner, as to prevent anyone becoming infected. If you want to find out more, please see the latest UK legislation for waste materials. Tyres Last but by no means least, the thing that you really cannot put into a skip are tyres. This is because the materials which come from skips are actually quite dangerous when burned, producing toxic fumes which can cause chemical pneumonia when left unattended once burned in high frequency. This means that you’re going to need to dispose of them properly and safely, in such a way that does not leave them in a position where they will be burnt.Overall, these are just a few of the things which you should not put into skips when you dispose of waste. When you don’t properly dispose of certain materials, you run the risk of them being thrown in with all of the other rubbish and causing problems later down the road, whether that is for the people who are actually sorting the rubbish in the skips, or for anyone else. If you need something moving that can go in a skip, then WasteBusters Skip Hire can help you. We can provide you with the skip you need in order to make your life as convenient as possible.

  • 0 The Advantages of a Skip

    0.00 of 0 votes

    When dealing with large quantities of rubbish which needs moving, there are many ways to get rid of it. However, the best and most efficient way to get rid of waste is to use a skip. There are many advantages for residents in Sutton to use skip hire, even if people aren’t fully aware of them. We’re taking a look at the reasons why a skip is a good idea. There’s a lot of storage space available One of the first and most significant benefits to using a skip is that there’s much more space available for you to throw rubbish away. Building materials or just general rubbish can pile up quite quickly, and make for lack of room on the premises if there are bags of rubbish piled high. A skip allows you to put it all in one place where it doesn’t take up masses of room, which is much more convenient and efficient. You can throw away a greater volume of rubbish Another one of the main advantages to using a skip is that you can get rid of much more rubbish than you could previously. When not using a skip, you’re limited to space which is available in bin bags and rubbish containers, and then you’ll need to dispose of it with whatever capacity you have for transport. With a skip, it’s much easier to throw vast heaps of rubbish away and dispose of it. The skip hire service is brought to you Perhaps one of the more convenient advantages to hiring a skip is that you can have it brought to you. Instead of going out and getting all the resources like bin bags, and then needing to maybe even hire out a van to transport the rubbish away to a disposal facility, you can instead have a skip brought to you and then taken away again without much interruption to your day. Overall, there are definite advantages to a skip. Being able to throw away a higher quantity of rubbish, as well as being able to store that waste in such a way that is not inconvenient is something which would be well received. If you need skip hire in Sutton or skip hire in south Croydon, then we can help. We offer fully licensed skips which are available for you to hire out whenever you want, in a process overseen by our trained staff.
