Important Points To Remember For Skip Hire In Horsham

By Skip Hire in Horsham

Skip hire in Horsham is now easier than ever, but you have to make sure you get the right skip for the job you have in mind. No matter whether it is for personal or business use, a skip is incredibly handy for disposing of the waste produced while performing home improvements, garden landscaping, or complete building or renovation projects.

There are a number of important things to take into account when you are looking for skip hire in Horsham. These can be very simple things such as choosing the right size of skip, and where you are going to have the skip positioned for the best access during your project. However, if you need to have your skip positioned on the road outside your house or business, have you thought about having a permit from Horsham Council?

When you hire a skip from Cox Skips our operations team can arrange Highway Permits for skips to be placed on the road and any necessary lighting and warning signage that may be required, and we are happy to provide you with a confirmed day and time for delivery and collection.

If you are unsure about what size skip to go with, or if you are able to hire a skip for the work you are planning to do the services we offer are available to all; corporate clients, business users, householders and local builders. With services ranging from site clearances and mini skip hire through to large roll on roll off containers no job is too big or too small when it comes to skip hire in Horsham.

From experience, we would recommend going for a skip one size larger than you first think you need. Quite often customers end up producing more waste than they first imagined, and have needed to hire an extra skip to cope. Hiring a one size larger skip will mean you will save money in the long run as the need to hire another skip will be avoided. It is important that you don’t overload the skip with rubbish as this can be a hazard, and could prevent the safe collection and transportation of the full skip.

While you can place contents in the skip such as general rubbish, wood, building rubble, soil, bricks and hardcore, there are certain items that may require specialist handling, such as hazardous waste. If you have an old freezer or fridge to dispose of, asbestos or any chemical or corrosive materials, then we have a system in place to safely dispose of these items for you.

Electrical items such as old televisions, computer monitors and similar household items that are no longer working should not be placed in a skip for general waste. Our services include collection of computer monitors, fridges, freezers, water coolers, televisions, cookers, microwaves, PC towers, keyboards, printers, fax machines, LCD screens, washing machines, dishwashers, tumble dryers and many other electrical items. Our operatives will assist with loading items and we will provide you with all documentation required under current legislation.

If you are unsure about disposal of certain items, then please do not hesitate to contact us on 01342 715978 or leave a comment below where our friendly staff are willing to advise you.

You may be wondering what size of skip you will need for your job.

Maybe you are planning to remodel your kitchen or bathroom, or are changing your carpets and flooring and need something larger than can handle more bulky waste. Then depending on how much you plan to remove, you would be wise to go for our 8 or 12 yard skips. These are our most popular skips for removing large, bulky items such as carpets and kitchen units etc.

If you are building and extension, renovating your home, or knocking out walls, then our large and roomy skips are ideal for disposing of rubble, tiles and other building debris.

Cox Skips know Horsham very well, and can best advise you about the placement of your hired skip. Our small and medium sized skips will fit into most gardens or driveways without a problem, but our larger skips may need to be placed on the road outside your property.
