Cannock Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can supply skips to both residential and commercial customers across Staffordshire and elsewhere within the UK.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling centre either in or local to Cannock where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suitable for numerous domestic and business jobs. They are the biggest sizes that can be used for weighty builders waste like garden soil, stone and gravel.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Cannock?
We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about our service. What is important to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste that will come from garden work, building work and property clearances.
Some of the most typical things that we find in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various other household products.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electronic goods (fridges, monitors and printers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to abide by an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
How can I order a skip online?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your address to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Cannock. Choose the size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on private property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
The vast majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as household furniture.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips used mainly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce large amounts of waste.
Can I throw away electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not put old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This includes things such as printers, hobs, dishwashers, freezers and televisions. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
Do I need to be home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being in when the skip arrives means you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that the skip is placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Cannock?
The cost of hiring a skip in Cannock will depend on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What size skips can you offer?
Skips come in a selection of different sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small residential tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Cannock?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you have got to obtain permission from the local authority in Cannock, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
Will a Cannock skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Cannock and the rest of the country. Each of our partner companies are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it ok to load up the skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably have to empty any rubbish higher than the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to choose the correct sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re not sure which size is best. We would be happy to help.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that gives you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing 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 option to take on many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
