Bideford Skip Hire FAQs
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic products such as old televisions, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. 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 safe and environmentally friendly manner.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your home. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How can I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Bideford with us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you will need and then input a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you will want a good amount of space as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro containers can only be hired for lightweight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and rubble.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Bideford?
Generally, it is possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from your local council in Bideford, which is called a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, however they are less common. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container that has a drop door is supplied.
Is it ok to pile up waste in my skip?
You should not fill up the skip past the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being collected.
Do you deliver skips across Devon?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to household and business customers across Devon and elsewhere in the UK.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bideford?
The cost of hiring a skip in Bideford is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition work. There are generally two different skip sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to dispose of large amounts of building and demolition waste materials, including soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Bideford, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them ideal for household clearances including bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For additional information about the various sizes offered, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or dirt, the maximum size you could get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How long can I hire a skip for?
Typically, you can have a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What will happen to the waste?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Bideford where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
