Found Clearabee excellent when needed clearance.
Thank you Kate.
If you've got a front garden with enough space, skip bags are a good way to go unless you have enough rubbish to fill a proper skip.
Hippo Waste and Clearabee are about the same price. Hippo uses a grabber vehicle to lift the bag into the vehicle, so they need a couple of parking bays directly outside for access when they come to collect. Clearabee manually unloads the bag (which you can then re-use if needed) into a lorry, and they can take other items for an agreed price if you've got extra stuff that doesn't fit in the bag.
I've used Hunt Skips for wait and load on a couple of occasions (wait and load avoids the need for a permit, bay suspension etc). No issues apart from the huge effort required to shift 8 yards of building waste in under an hour. The driver doesn't help with loading, in case you were wondering!
Thank you - I think on this occasion, we're going for the skip and the permit as the wait and load sounds a bit stressful! It is a bit more expensive of course. Do I need to apply for a bay suspension then? I thought you just put a couple of bins out to save the space! Thanks
The info on Haringey's website suggests a bay suspension if you want to guarantee a space in the right place. There may be other ways of achieving that, of course
Ha ha! Thank you.
Just wanted to update that after reading Hunt Skips dodgy reviews we booked our skip with Town Skips and didn't have any problems. Skip was delivered dead on time ( I phoned the day before and booked it for 8am) and when we had finished with it 4 days later, I phoned them up and they collected the same day (in the mid-afternoon).
Will leave them a good review on Google Reviews now as I feel like they were good to me so deserve it.
