Bridport Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being in whenever the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, if you can’t be around for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.
How do I hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Bridport with us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you require and enter a couple of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Typically, the majority of skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building work, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy materials like soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
Is it okay to fill the skip above the level load mark?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you risk being told to take out surplus waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded container is hazardous, as waste could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in a skip?
Before hiring a skip, you must make sure that the kind of waste materials you need to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may throw in a skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use your skip to discard building and construction waste, including old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from your general waste.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products including old TVs, cookers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Bridport?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.
Will you deliver skips across Dorset?

Through our network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Bridport, Shaftesbury or Verwood, we have got you covered.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can typically have a skip for as many as 14 days from the date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Bridport?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you need to receive authorisation from the local authority in Bridport, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should know before booking that securing the permit can often take up to two working days.
What is the cost of skip hire in Bridport?
The cost of getting a skip in Bridport will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into several different waste streams, which includes wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
