How To Prepare For The Arrival Of Your Skip

How To Prepare For The Arrival Of Your Skip

When you first come to the realisation that you are in desperate-need of a skip, you may think that it is simply a matter of finding a provider, and allowing them to do the majority of the work – this could not be further from the truth. It is true that waste removal services are incredibly efficient; however, there are still a number of steps that you have to take care of yourself. Here to explain a little more about how you can swiftly prepare for the arrival of your brand-new skip, are the Smiths Recycling experts. 

Look at site entrance

Before you get too carried away in regards to the various skip sizes that are available to you, we would suggest that you take a quick look at your site entrance. After all, it needs to be able to accommodate a large lorry on multiple occasions; this problem is even-more evident when you choose a roll-on roll-off skip, as these can measure up to almost five metres in height. For a smooth-and-seamless experience, it would be wise to clear your entrance of any obstructions. 

Consider your neighbours

Although it does not quite get as much in the way of publicity, the fact remains that it is not solely construction firms that can make the most of skip-rental services. Case-and-point, if you are emptying your domestic home of rubbish, having access to a skip could save you a significant amount of hassle. However, you might want to give your neighbours prior warning, as you will not want to impede them from accessing their driveway. 

Remove site obstacles

Whilst we have already drawn your attention to the issues relating to your entrance, we still think that it is important to reinforce the fact that there could be hurdles that you need to overcome within your project’s site. There could, for instance, be piles of redundant concrete scattered about the place. Similarly, you might have to deal with vehicles that have been parked in less-than ideal locations. Whatever the case may be, to make the most of your skip it would be worthwhile spending some time clearing your site. In the long-run, this will inject some much-needed convenience into your life. 

Take note of manholes

On the face of it, you may find it odd that prior to enlisting the help of a waste disposal company, you need to make them aware of any manholes that are situated around your site. The reason for this, in case you weren’t aware, is because some of these could potentially be damaged if a lorry or skip was placed on them for an extended period of time. Even mini skips could cause issues, which understandably is something that you want to avoid.
