Bramhall Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial commercial size skips that are used mainly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that generate large amounts of waste.
Will a skip hire company from Bramhall deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being in whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip will be placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Bramhall?
This depends on the size you require and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can typically keep your skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You can provide a chosen pick up date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will organise your collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over busy periods.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Bramhall, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small house clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are suitable for house clear ups involving large items like furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.
For additional details about the various skip sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Bramhall?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private land, you will save some money.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, although these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into a range of waste streams, such as timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that 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!
How soon can you deliver a skip to Bramhall?
We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for numerous types of residential and commercial tasks. They are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste like soil, rubble and concrete.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of waste in a skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building wastes like rubble or dirt, the maximum size you can use is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electronic items such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items should be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any rubbish higher than the level load line. This also means you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you select the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We would be glad to help.
