There is a fierce competition in the industry aptly named “rubbish removal Shepherds Bush”. Well, maybe not “fierce” competition, but there definitely is some. However, there’s only a handful of companies that can actually get the job done properly, and you need to know what they are.
In order to choose the proper company for you, you must first gauge the precise type of rubbish you would like removed. While some companies excel at everything, some are specialised in removing certain types of rubbish. For example, some are very adept at removing furniture, while they struggle with garden waste, while are others excel at office clearance but are not the best when it comes to house clearance. There are those, of course, who are generally good at everything, but it’s a good idea to do your research before you order.
Certification is another thing you need to look at. Most service providers are certified and insured, which means they can actually perform the job and if something should happen, it will be handled with care. This is extremely important because uncertified contractors can get you in trouble, especially if they don’t dispose of the waste appropriately.
Speaking of waste disposal, this is another thing to keep an eye out for. Some companies are environmentally conscious and try to recycle and reuse as much as humanly possible. This means they dispose of the rubbish in a proper and environmentally friendly manner. The UK recycles around 50% of its waste, which may sound a lot (and we’ve made a huge progress over the last several years), but we’re nowhere near countries like Sweden where they recycle 99%.
The availability is also quite important. Some companies have specified working hours, but they’re willing to work outside those temporal parameters for the benefits of their clients. Some additional fees may apply, but that’s a small price to pay to get your rubbish removed when it’s most convenient to you, not the company or, god forbid – council.
These are the main things to look out for when we’re talking about choosing a proper company to deal with your waste disposal needs. You need to be aware of the different services, certification, ways of disposal, environmental awareness, working hours, availability, etc. There are other factors to consider, of course, but these are very often overlooked.« « previous post: Current State of the UK’s Waste Collection Industry |
