If your home has been hit by a bad storm, you are going to need to start clearing up sooner or later. We know that this is one of the last things that you want to think about when damage has been caused to your property, but it’s practical to understand that cleaning up after a storm is something that needs to be done. Having said that, you need to think about the best way to clean up all the mess and debris that is currently surrounding your home – that’s what we’re here for! 


Speak To Your Insurance

Of course, we recommend that you speak to your insurance before you do anything. You might be itching to get started, but we can all but guarantee they are going to want photos/videos/evidence of the storm damage that has been caused. It’s important that you get all of this before you move a single thing from the site, just so that you can properly make your claim. 


Speak to your insurance and ask them what the next steps are that you can take. Some companies are extremely helpful, they will walk you through what to do, and others will just tell you to get on with it and they will contact you when they have some more information about your claim.

Storm over road and windmills


Getting Yourself A Skip Bin

Now that you are ready to start cleaning up, the best thing that you can do for yourself is to hire a skip bin! These are large bins that you can use to put waste into, and then you can have them removed from your property when the time comes. It’s important that you hire your skip bin from a reputable company like ours to get the best possible service to help you through the clean up. You will need to do your research and know what type of skip bin you would like, how big it is going to need to be and other details like these just so that there are no issues later down the line. 


You should never hire from any company without checking the restrictions on what you can put in the skip bin. These are an absolute lifesaver after a storm, but companies do have things that they don’t want inside the bins, and if you do end up filling it with this material then you will be charged. 


The last thing that you want at this time is more stress, and we can provide you with a skip bin hire service that helps you clear your property in no time!


Saves You A Whole Load Of Time

One of the best things about getting a skip bin is that it saves you a whole load of time. Instead of making trip after trip to the tip with a whole load of rubbish in your car, you can throw it all in one place and then not have to worry about it. This is going to save you hours in trips, depending on how far the nearest tip is to your home. It’s also far more convenient to just throw things into the skip, rather than having to try and separate it all for the tip, saving you even more time!


You don’t want to be putting wet rubbish into your car to ferry it all over the place, do you? And you certainly don’t want to have these items in a confined space with you not knowing what is actually on them, what could have gotten onto them during the storm etc. It’s not just about saving you time, but it’s also about making this whole process a little safer than it would be otherwise. 


Keeps The Place Tidy As You’re Clearing Up

Of course, it’s not exactly going to be tidy because if it was there would be no need for a skip bin in the first place. But, getting all of the materials, debris and everything out of the way can be a challenge and a half, and grinding somewhere to put it can cause even more problems. Getting a skip bin provides you with somewhere to put everything that you want to get rid of, and it’s not going to be in the way. 


Without a skip bin you would likely need to use bags or make piles that you would then remove when you had the time. A skip bin eliminates this problem, giving you somewhere that you can pile all of your rubbish into, and making the mess look a little bit less with every passing second.


It’s A Safe Option

The final point that we want to make about getting a skip bin is the fact that it is a safe option for clearing up after a storm. There is going to be so much going on, so much that needs to be moved, and generally so much to do, but you never really know what is around. You never know what is lurking underneath branches, you never know what has attached itself to certain pieces of wood or cardboard that might have been blown all over the place. As such, putting the rubbish in a skip is a much safer option than either leaving it where it has fallen and hoping someone will come to clear it for you, or putting it in your car. It certainly makes it safer than having to try and transport things like sharp pieces of metal by yourself.


The skip bin will be removed by a team of dedicated specialists who know how to handle the removal of all kinds of material.


As you can see then, cleaning up after a storm is never going to be a fun time, but it can be made ten times easier if you hire a skip bin for all of your rubbish. It’s a convenient option, and it’s going to make cleaning up after a storm a little less stressful.
