What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips that are used primarily in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate significant quantities of waste.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bracknell?
Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Bracknell. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip located on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for building and construction work. There are generally two different sizes that can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and stone.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe to transport, and you might be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be collected.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered items like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods have to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
How do you order a skip online?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your postcode to look at all the different skips we can deliver to Bracknell. Choose the size you want to order, and confirm if it will be located on your own property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What happens to the waste when the skip is collected?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a number of waste types, which includes wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, although these are generally more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container that has a drop door is provided.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You can throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, tile, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are allowed too. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in a skip.
However, there are a few items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risks they can cause.
You cannot get rid of your freezer, television or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Feel free to email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Can you deliver skips across Berkshire?
We provide a national skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Bracknell, Woodley, Wokingham, Thatcham or another site in Berkshire, we can help.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bracknell?
Normally, it is possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you have got to have consent from your local council in Bracknell, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can typically keep your skip for as long as 14 days from the delivery date. It is possible to give a preferred pick up day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy periods.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
