Skip Hire Barnet
Hiring a skip in Barnet is straight forward if you know what you're doing. So here are several things you have to know about skip hire:
- Look in a local business directory of Barnet or on the net for 'skip hire'.
- Search on your local council's site - since many councils provide a tally of waste contractors in their area.
- Have a look at skips on roads and drives near you. By law, the operators must set their name and contact details in the skip. Select some or all of these operators - and give a call to them.
- Contact Waste King Limited
- Check with the Environment Agency that the skip operator is licensed to carry waste in Barnet and is also properly qualified.
- Request the skip operator for its waste carrier license number.
- See the Environment Agency's site and check if this number relates to a valid permit.
Skips can be found in several sizes - and adhere to the 'imperial' measures of cubic yards. A cubic yard is a space measuring one yard (three feet or 0.92 metres) by one yard by one yard. This equates - approximately - to two standard washing machines or dishwashers, or to one upright fridgefreezer.
Both these sizes of skip are known - confusingly - as 'contractors' skips'. Please note that lots of councils don't allow skips with a capacity larger than eight cubic yards to be put on a public highway.
The optimum size of skip for your need is the one which allows you to use all of its own space to contain all of the waste you must dispose of. In case you can't fill the dumpster with waste, you're paying cash to only move air.
Loading the skip in Barnet
In the event that you can't load the skip yourself - or get some of your relatives and buddies to do it for you - you likely need to take a look at choices for getting rid of your waste materials. You could contact Waste King Limited, a specialist waste clearance company, which supplies both the labour to load the waste materials as well as the vehicle with which to remove it.
Skip lorries tend to be between eight and half feet and nine and half feet wide. They tend to weigh at least 7.5 tonnes. On The Other Hand, the skip must certainly be set on the road adjacent to your property - and that means you'll want a skip permit.
Both the permit along with the parking suspension not only cost money but will take a couple of days to arrange.
How long can I keep a skip in Barnet?
Operators will need to gather the (total) skip within a week - or in fourteen days at the most. If you really need the skip to be removed sooner - or after - you must discuss and agree this with the skip hire business. If the skip's being put on the road, you should take account of the terms of your skip permit and any parking suspension that really needs to be in place. Both of these things cost money. So the longer that the skip's there, the more cash it costs you.
So what can I set in a skip located in Barnet?
- Paint and cans of paint
- Fluorescent tubes
- Oil, petrol or diesel
- Electrical appliances and equipment, including televisions and computer screens; refrigerators, freezers and air conditioning units
- Gas canisters and gas bottles
- Hazardous and noxious materials
- Clinical or medical waste, including syringes
The skip operator can - legitimately - charge you additional money for the hire of the skip or request you to truly remove the excessive waste before the skip can be taken off, in case the waste is above these edges.
What happens to the things within the skip?
The skip operator must have the capacity to tell you the landfill site to which your waste is going - and how much of it, if any, will avoid going to landfill. Waste King Limit is pledged to recycle at least 90 per cent of each load of waste. This decreases the environmental impact of the waste - and enables Waste King Limited to supply price reductions to its customers.
How much it costs to hire Skip in Barnet?
The price of the skip depends upon its size, the waste material you're putting in it and where - in the UK - you're based. As a rough guide, an average price for an eight yard contractor's skip is presently around GBP220, plus the cost of any parking bay suspension and skip permit.
Is there an alternative to a skip in Barnet?
Yes. Moreover, Waste King Limited's staff will
segregate the waste to ensure that the maximum amount is recycled and the minimal amount of the waste goes to landfill - thus helping the environment too.
Waste King Limited will: Save you time in clearing the waste, compared with the time taken to fill a skip after which get it removed
Save you money because it only charges for the number of waste removed (not by the skip load)

Have the capacity to clear waste materials from just about any part of your own property - so, unlike skips, there are never any 'access issues'
And, since no skip is left overnight, your neighbours can't offload their waste materials when no one's looking - so you merely pay for your own waste to be removed.
