Bude Skip Hire FAQs

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips used to discard substantial building and demolition materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.

The builders skip is great for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the garage, these substantial skips tend to be the most affordable choice available.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you run a company in Bude and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the name implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.

Will a skip hire company from Bude deliver my skip?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Bude, you will have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups involving large objects like furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.

To get more information about the different sizes available, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

How much does skip hire in Bude cost?

Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Bude. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip positioned on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

It is usually a good idea to be in when anyone delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.

The same applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What can I put in the skip?

You can fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you will be using the skip for heavy building waste like bricks or dirt, the maximum size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be discarded in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?

As soon as 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 variety of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can typically hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when placing your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

Can you deliver to other areas in Cornwall?

As well as delivering skips to Bude, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Cornwall. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Bude, Fowey or Callington, we have got it covered.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

No, you can not put old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and monitors. Electric objects can’t be discarded in a skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Bude?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you need to secure authorisation from your local authority in Bude, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Bude?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the top?

It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being told to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded skip is dangerous, as waste could drop and cause injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this problem, please ensure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have further rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
