Everything you need to know about road restrictions when hiring a skip
Are you planning a building project in Wigan? Whether you’re renovating, redecorating or constructing, you’re bound to be left with a lot of waste and often hiring a skip is the easiest way to deal with it.
Skips are suitable for projects of all scales, and here at Bolton Skips, we consider no project to be too big or too small. We make sure all our domestic and commercial skips are delivered on time to a location of your choice – whether it be your driveway, building site or the road in front of your property in Wigan.
If you have space for your skip to be placed on private land, you needn’t worry about permits or permission. However, we advise you contact the local council before you start to familiarise yourself with the do’s and don’ts for skip hire Wigan.
When skips are left on the road, you will need to obtain a permit from the local council. To make it more convenient for you, we can arrange the licenses and permits for your hire, making sure they are in place before you start. The cost of our skip hire permits is £35 and will be added to the overall price for skip hire in Wigan.
There are certain restrictions for skips left on public roads in Wigan, but rest assured, our expert team can help. Remember not to block entrances and exits, manholes or utility points. Skips must be within 15m of junctions and not obstruct road user’s view of oncoming traffic. Safety lights, cones and markings will help make your skip visible in periods of darkness – both for drivers and pedestrians – and eliminate the risk of them crashing into your skip.
If you’re looking for skip hire in areas that are covered and controlled by parking zones, you will need to apply for a parking suspension, as well as a permit for skip hire Wigan from the local council. The cost of the parking suspension will be equivalent to the cost of parking in the bay for the period of the suspension, but they will explain this to you in thorough detail.
You can find general information about skip hire licenses on the gov.uk website. Alternatively contact the local authority for details about skip hire permits, suspensions and permission in your local area and they will provide you with the ins and outs for skip hire Wigan.
Always on hand to help, Bolton Skips will happily guide you through the process – effectively maximising your value for money and ensuring compliance with the road restrictions currently in place. For more information, call 01204 383 737 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
