Bournemouth Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Bournemouth?

We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Bournemouth and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner businesses are verified and tested to make sure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

How long does it take to get a skip in Bournemouth?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

What size skips have got a drop down door?

The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then have to remove any contents over the level load line. This means you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you choose the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you need. We would be glad to help.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be hired to dispose of substantial building waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the garage, these substantial containers are often the most cost-effective solution available.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bournemouth?

The price of hiring a skip in Bournemouth depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How do you order a skip online?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Bournemouth. Select which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it will be located on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Through our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Bournemouth, Lyme Regis or Swanage, we have got you covered.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant volumes of waste.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which will result from garden work, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most frequent things which we pick up in our skips include soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household objects.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (fridges and freezers, TVs and printers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it located, we can manage it all.

For those who are not likely to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular side of the property. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.

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

I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic items such as old televisions, fridges, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will give you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, if you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Bournemouth?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

Where will the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?

The waste in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, including soil, cardboard, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Other areas covered include Lyme Regis, Swanage, Gillingham, Chickerell, Blandford Forum, Wareham, Bridport and Christchurch.
