Chickerell Skip Hire FAQs

Am I able to get a skip that has a drop down door?

If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, though they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.

If I would like a skip on a road in Chickerell, will I need to get a permit?

Usually, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you will need to have permission from your local council in Chickerell, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, such as soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this will provide you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

Am I allowed to put all sorts of rubbish in my skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish into the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed also. Cupboards from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in your skip.

There are, however, a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they could trigger.

You can not throw in your fridge, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Feel free to contact us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling centre.

Am I allowed to put electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered products like cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We can provide a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Chickerell firms with a big volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do I order a skip in Chickerell?

Ordering a skip in Chickerell through us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you need and then input a couple of details about where and when you need the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are perfect for numerous types of domestic and business projects. These are the largest size skips that can be used for weighty builders waste including garden soil, stone and bricks.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Chickerell?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can normally offer you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (such as a street), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Chickerell. We work with a network of both regional and national businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively vetted to make sure they match the high standards we demand when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce large volumes of waste materials.

Do you deliver skips across Dorset?

Of course, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations across Dorset, such as Chickerell, Wareham, Sherborne and Shaftesbury. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

I’m afraid not. You must only load your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to take off the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.

How much will skip hire in Chickerell cost?

The price of hiring a skip in Chickerell is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. The price depends on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for residential work like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?

It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you want it.

The same applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Other areas covered include Wareham, Sherborne, Shaftesbury, Blandford Forum, Dorchester, Sturminster Newton, Bridport and Christchurch.
