Beating the Tip Nazis - Mobile Skip Required

Recommended Posts

Berlingo or Kangoo absolutely ideal.

 

Are Roomsters shite yet? It looks like probably not, the cheapest ones on autotrader being £1300? If the rubbish isn't too filthy you could probably do OK buying a scabby Roomster, using it, then selling on - but that's probably not really what the OP intended.

 

The Roomster feels a lot more solid than the old Berlingo did but for some reason I've never really bonded with it, it's just a tool. Silly attitude as the Roomster has been faultless and bits were always falling off the Berlingo...

Around here you need a permit for any vehicle to use the local tip. It's because we're between Sheffield, Donny, Rotherham and West Yorkshire so if any of them are on strike or shut people just bob over the border and use the tips in the next council area (obviously, I haven't* done that).....

Renault Espace with rear seats removed, saved me a fortune in skips also only got charged as a car on the Severn Bridge. Added bonus that it's probably easy to chop up and throw in the skip at the tip when you're finished withe it.

Same with the galaxy, massive with the seats out. The suspension can take at least 850kg of sand but sadly can’t squeeze a bull bag through the rear.

 

Impressive load haul. Swivel seats mean I can get 3m timber planks in too

If it's around here these days they will start giving you hassle if you turn up more than twice on one day in any car! They had a right royal moan when I took a trailer of tree clippings in.

 

Really doesn't surprise me that MK has a massive problem with fly tipping given how difficult they make it to legally get rid of rubbish.

Do Kia Sedonas sometimes fall into just above scrap territory anymore?

I'd imagine the carrying capacity is better than some vans with the seats taken out

Cheapest I could find within 100 miles but haven't dared to look on Gumtree.

They're a lot cheaper than that on eBay.

I shifted a whole kitchen to the tip.

Units, old floor tiles, worktops the lot in my Peugeot RCZ.

 

Took more than one trip obviously.

The tip at the Tyne Tunnel lets me on with my transit. I had to show them an invoice with my postcode on and they made sure it wasn't plumbing waste. Common sense prevails in this instance. Instead of wrecking our daily.

It’s always old faithful for me. Back seats out and a false floor replaced them.

 

The ‘load bed’ isn’t as long as my Mondeo, so that gets the cleaner jobs and/or things that will break. But the opening rear window on the Rexton is ideal for many other longer items.

 

I was at the tip yesterday with it, rammed with stuff. Rubble, glass, door, carpet and underlay, metal, wood, plastic, laminate, bits of old kitchen.

Although it did raise the comment “Can anyone smell fried eggs?” from one of the workers. Lol.

 

It will certainly earn its keep with me this year, as I renovate my house and garden, build a garage etc.

 

So yeah, that’s my vote.

Fill the broken Porsche up with rubbish and get it taken away by the scrap man?

Not as daft as it seems, a while ago I was at the tip and a friend pulled up  next to me in his 911 and unloaded some cardboard packaging into the skip. It is surprising how much cardboard you can get in a Porsche if you jump up and down on it to flatten it (the cardboard that is ;) )

They aren't really TNs at Carlisle, as on my last trip I was so disorganised, my 6x4 trailer wasn't empty, so I brought it over on the boat full. Then went to the tip when I got there. (Smoll trailer + furrin registered car = no problem)

 

The other time was 27,000 trips in this:

As you can see behind my bro, two of those round bins fit on the back seat and smoller quantity of stuff in the boot. They'll never suspect anything.

I might have a cheap Multipla for sale in the next month or so.

 

C5 estates are absolutely gigantic. So if you need it sooner (I suspect you do) then a cheap one would swallow more or less anything.
