Chagford Skip Hire FAQs
How quick can you deliver a skip to Chagford?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Chagford the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system gives you a range of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like your skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electronic products including old televisions, cookers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will then have to remove any rubbish above the level load mark. This means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you select the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size is best. We would be glad to help.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Chagford?
This is determined by the skip size you need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not feasible, you do not need to worry. Just let us know when making your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip which is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty waste including garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How do you hire a skip online?
We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your address to see all the different skip sizes we can supply in Chagford. Pick the best size to meet your needs and give us the details of where and when you would like your skip delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your booking is complete!
Do all skips have a drop door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
What happens to the waste in my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We offer a whole variety of skip sizes to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sized skips available, with a rough guide to how much waste each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to fill up the 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 earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Chagford?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a household project, then a driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you must obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge or other public property in Chagford. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to get rid of huge amounts of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for commercial applications. However, domestic customers may also use them. You have to consider the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
What kinds of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy building wastes like bricks or dirt, the maximum size you can hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
