Beaminster Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Beaminster?

This will depend on the size you require and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to get rid of huge volumes of waste materials. Generally, these containers are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic clients may also order them. You have to take into account the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for light-weight waste such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be at home on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if this isn’t possible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.

How do you hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Next, select the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Beaminster on the day you have chosen.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Beaminster and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner companies are verified and tested to make sure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted trip.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into several different waste streams, including timber, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Can you deliver skips across Dorset?

We provide a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Beaminster, Sherborne, Bournemouth, Verwood or another location in Dorset, we are able to help.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load mark?

It is important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excess waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin is dangerous, as rubbish could fall and lead to injury or damage to others.

To avoid this problem, please be sure you hire a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What sort of rubbish am I allowed to throw in a skip?

It is possible to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy building wastes such as concrete or top soil, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, since electrical products like old TVs, cookers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.

What size skips can you offer?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title indicates, these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Beaminster?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a residential job, then your driveway is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Beaminster. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for construction projects. There are generally two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and bricks.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip could be the best option. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they offer.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic tasks including small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.

Other areas covered include Sherborne, Bournemouth, Verwood, Fortuneswell, Ferndown, Swanage, Chickerell and Sturminster Newton.
