When Buying or Renovating a House Include a Skip from Bookabin

So, you’ve finally decided to buy your first home, or you are renovating for the first time. This can be a scary and daunting time for many ‘first-timers’, and all useful advice is welcome. For most people, the money will be tight, so it is important to have a workable budget to allow for all the ‘extras’ that may ensue during the process. This will inevitably include the need for a skip bin, and Bookabin has a huge range of sizes and types of skips.

When you are first looking at buying a property you need to check transport connections, schools and local facilities like doctors, shopping, libraries and home services, in particular DIY resources and where to find them – online, Facebook DIY sites and local hardware DIY courses. Get your research sorted before doing DIY projects, and set your budget, checking you have the right tools and materials. Can you hire the tools?

It is essential when renovating that you pick a DIY project that brings substantial value to your property, also deciding which one will bring the most value to you and your family. To keep your property safe and secure during DIY renovation projects, it is vital to hire a skip bin from a reputable skip bin hire company, such as Bookabin.

It’s Not a Good Idea to Overload Your Skip Bin!

Whether you are using a skip bin for moving house, home renovations, or a commercial project, you might be tempted to overfill it. It seems like a good idea, as the assumption is that you will save money, it’s easier than getting another one, and there’s no harm in it. However, overloading a skip bin is actually dangerous, illegal, and costly.

It is dangerous to overload your skip bin, as it puts you, your neighbours, and even your family at risk. There could be sharp, broken items sticking out the top and this could easily hurt passers-by, or those handling the skip bin. Also, if it is overflowing, then items can fall out and land on someone or roll into the street. When an overfilled skip bin is in transit, it is especially hazardous, as debris can fly out and land on the road or hit another vehicle.

Overweight, overfilled and overcharge!

It may seem like you are saving money by overfilling your skip bin, but in fact, it will mean more costs in the long run. If your skip bin is overloaded, then the truck driver who is meant to pick it up could refuse to take it. This is because the skip may exceed weight restrictions and could damage the truck and put the driver at risk. In this situation, you will have to pay extra costs to have the waste removed.

The main thing you need to know when loading your skip bin is that you can’t fill it higher than the sides of the bin. On most skip bins there is a red ‘fill line’ which shows the limit of where your waste can be filled to, and you should stick to this. It is usually obvious if you have overfilled it, so don’t make the mistake of thinking that you will get away with it – just remove any excess and keep to the limit.
