Brackley Skip Hire FAQs
Will a Brackley skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can in most cases keep the skip for as many as 14 days from the date of delivery. You can provide a preferred pick up day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during hectic times.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip that is hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and construction work, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for hefty materials like garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is perfect for disposing of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, although these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We are able to supply a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Brackley firms which generate a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Brackley?
Generally, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you have got to get approval from your local authority in Brackley, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a business in Brackley and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brackley?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Brackley. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip located on the highway or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.
Can I load up the skip higher than the side?
No, you are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste up above this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you may be told to get rid of the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
Do you deliver skips across Northamptonshire?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Brackley, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Northamptonshire. Through our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Brackley, Rushden or Northampton, we have got it covered.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you want it.
The same goes if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How do you order a skip?
We have designed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we can provide in Brackley. Pick the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is done!
What can I put in the skip?
It is possible to put a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are some things that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential ecological or health risk they could cause.
You can’t throw in your freezer, computer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things consist of hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this material. Please get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods including tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
