Church Stretton Skip Hire FAQs
Do you deliver to other areas in Shropshire?
We offer a national skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Church Stretton, Shrewsbury, Wem, Market Drayton or another location in Shropshire, we can help.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Church Stretton?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you must get authorisation from your local council in Church Stretton, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
How much does skip hire in Church Stretton cost?
The price of getting a skip in Church Stretton depends on the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Church Stretton and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make certain they match our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport significant quantities of waste materials. Generally, these containers are used for industrial uses. Having said that, residential customers can also hire them. It is very important think about the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for light-weight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.
Can I fill up the skip above the level load mark?
You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be secure to transport, and you could be asked to take off any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
What waste materials can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy building wastes including bricks or garden soil, the maximum size you could get is an 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How long can I hire a skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Church Stretton, you will have multiple options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are well suited for house clear ups involving large objects like furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more information about the different skip sizes offered, including proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is picked up?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Church Stretton where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How do I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). After that, choose the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Church Stretton on the day you have chosen.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suited to a wide variety of residential and industrial projects. They are the largest skips that can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.
Am I able to throw away electrical items in my skip?
Electrical objects such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items should be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
