Skip Hire companies mainly serve two types of market being commercial and the domestic market. So it is important before requesting quotes to ensure that you\’re approaching the right people.
Many companies won\’t give quotes over the phone, give details regarding the dropping and picking up on skips and operate on a cash payment to the driver basis. The best way to discern professional companies from the non professional is to check the firm is a member of the Institute of Wastes Management. That way you can ensure you get a professional service from a reputable Skip Hire Company.
Skip Hire is expensive and for good reason too. The skip itself can cost anything north of £40,000 and that\’s excluding the costs of having the correct insurances, recycling costs, licensed responsible professional drivers and operating a company owned waste transfer station.
Keep your skips in line! Under UK Law it\’s illegal for Skip driver to remove skips with rubbish over the fill line, therefore it makes sense to hire a skip big enough to take all your rubbish hassle free.
Hire a company with Vehicle Tracking. Skip Hire involves heavy loads which means things can go wrong such as overfilling, toxic waste and inevitably delivery schedules get changed. The most responsible skip hire companies will use vehicle tracking to inform the customer at all times of any potential delays or changes to the schedule. Don\’t be fooled by companies claiming to always be on schedule as you will almost always be disappointed.
