Bourne End Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Bourne End, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them great for household clearances including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for light waste, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
To get more information about the different skip sizes offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge commercial scale skips that are used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant amounts of waste.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we can access where you need it delivered, we are able to manage everything.
If you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular area of your drive. Or you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.
No matter what the case might be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
How big is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction projects. There are typically two skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste materials, like garden soil, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for many other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can usually deliver skips to Bourne End the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking program will provide you with various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want your skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Our standard hire period is 14 days from your delivery date. However, when you order your skip, you can select a collection date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will pick it up as soon as possible.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop door helps make filling waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky items such as furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is vital to never overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overfill the skip, you could be asked to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is unsafe and is therefore prohibited.
How do I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Bourne End through us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you require and then input a few details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Bourne End?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Bourne End. We make use of a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to guarantee they satisfy the high standards we require with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
Where does the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I able to put electrical products in the skip?
I’m afraid not, because electronic products like old televisions, cookers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bourne End?
The price of getting a skip in Bourne End is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bourne End?
Normally, it will be possible to have your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you must get permission from your local authority in Bourne End, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
Am I allowed to throw all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste that could result from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most frequent things which we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, toilets, and other household items.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electronic goods (fridge freezers, televisions and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must adhere to a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
Do you deliver to other areas in Buckinghamshire?
Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can provide skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Buckinghamshire and elsewhere in the UK.
