FindaSkip is the UK's most effective nationwide skip hire source & supply
If you’re looking for cheap skip hire, let Findaskip Ltd give you some advice on how to achieve this, in a cost effective and environmentally friendly way.
We have over 40 years experience in the waste management industry, so there is not much about skip hire, skip hire costs, recycling and service that we don’t know.
Findaskip Ltd is a Nationwide company, When we look to find a skip for a customer we strive to find the cheapest skip price. However, we know that cheaper does not always mean better, and that using a responsible, reliable and professional business is just as important as finding the best price.
Remember, if the skip price seems too good to be true, it probably is. There are many rogue businesses around, offering cheap skip hire or cheap waste removal prices, who then after taking your waste away end up fly-tipping it.
Not your problem, right?
Well you may be surprised to learn that you as the customer are still responsible for your waste, even after it has been taken away, if the waste is then traced back to you (which it often can be), you could be in for some costly fines.
Remember that even with the cheap skip hire prices you will find on Findaskip, you are always dealing with reputable, licensed waste removal businesses who offer the lowest possible skip hire prices to you via our website.
As a householder, you have a legal obligation (duty of care) to take all reasonable measures to ensure that your waste is disposed of properly.
The Environmental Protection (duty of care) Regulations require all householders to make sure their waste is only removed from their premises by registered waste carriers.
These days it is costly to dispose of waste properly and responsibly, so if the cheap skip hire quote you have found falls way below the average for your local area, you may want to check them out more thoroughly.
Fly-tipping costs UK taxpayers £40,000,000 a year. See Suffolk councils fly-tipping video (tripping up the tippers campaign) below.
Ask questions: even when looking for cheap skip hire you have a duty of care to take reasonable steps to prevent someone else dumping your waste illegally. Always enquire with the waste disposer what exactly is going to happen to your waste and see evidence that it is going to be disposed of in the correct manner. A legitimate, professional waste carrier who wants your business should not object to being asked reasonable questions.
Ask for details of their waste carrier registration – if you are using a waste carrier to remove your waste, you can check if they are registered waste carriers by searching the Environment Agency’s online at public register or by calling 08708 506 506.
Record the vehicle registration numbers of the vehicles used by the waste carrier to take your waste away. The waste carrier may be less likely to fly-tip your waste if he is knows that the vehicle registration details has been recorded.
Ask for a proper invoice and receipt. Even when offering cheap skip hire, we still pay our taxes, don’t accept no for an answer!
Never accept unsolicited offers to have waste taken away. Cheap skip hire is often a target of unscrupulous people who do not dispose of waste legally and generally drum up their business by ‘door knocking’ local areas.
Expect to pay a reasonable price – the prices that legitimate waste carriers have to pay to dispose of waste that they collect are not cheap. An unusually cheap skip hire price, or an offer to remove rubbish for free in order to profit from any scrap metal that may be among it, should be treated with suspicion. Again be wary of cheap local skip hire prices from companies that do not have an established reputation.
Remember – always ask for their waste carrier number and if in doubt check their details with the Environment Agency – it is you that could face a fine of up to £5,000 if you do not check and your waste ends up being illegally disposed of.
