Braunton Skip Hire FAQs
What size is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to take on many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Braunton?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic clients also. However, you should have a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, roro containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and rubble.
Am I allowed to throw all types of waste in my skip?
It is possible to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes such as bricks or dirt, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and house clearances. A common choice for bigger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Braunton firms which produce a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Is it okay to load up my skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will then have to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to ensure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you choose the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be happy to help.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently hired for building and demolition projects. There are generally two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Braunton?
This depends on the skip size you need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.
Having said that, if that isn’t possible, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when you are making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Braunton?
We have designed our online booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to type in your postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Braunton. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of when and where you would like your skip delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your order is complete!
Can I put electronic products in the skip?
Electrical objects such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products should be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
What will happen to the waste?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, including soil, cardboard, rubble and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.
Do you deliver skips across Devon?
Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Devon, such as Braunton, Sherford, Ivybridge and Brixham. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long does it take to get a skip in Braunton?
We can typically supply skips to Braunton the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system provides you with a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need the skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Will a Braunton skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Braunton and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to ensure they match our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How long can I keep a skip for?
You can usually have the skip for as many as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a preferred collection day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will organise the collection. Normally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over hectic times.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
In general, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
