Biggleswade Skip Hire FAQs
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Biggleswade, you will have several options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
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 comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household clear ups including large items such as furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.
To get more information about the various skip sizes available, such as dimensions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it will help. Being in whenever the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Biggleswade?
As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often supplied for building jobs. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as earth, rubble and bricks.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the street). Next, select the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Biggleswade on the date you have chosen.
How much will skip hire in Biggleswade cost?
Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Biggleswade. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
If I would like a skip on a road in Biggleswade, will I need to get a permit?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
Where does the waste go once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste streams, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as garden soil and concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky items such as furniture easier too.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
Will you deliver skips across Bedfordshire?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can provide skips to residential and business customers across Bedfordshire and elsewhere in the UK.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
How long does it take to get a skip in Biggleswade?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a charge for the wasted journey.
Is it okay to fill the skip above level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you may have to empty any contents higher than the level load line. This also means that you can not use sheets of timber, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be glad to help.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items have to be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
The roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by residential clients too. However, you need plenty of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, these skips can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection time when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip depends on which skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you will be using a skip for heavy building wastes including concrete or garden soil, the largest size you can use is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
