Coseley Skip Hire FAQs
How can I hire a skip in Coseley?
We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Coseley. Pick the right size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you need your skip delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction once your order is done!
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?
Having a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy waste like dirt or rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky objects like household furniture much easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What can I put in the skip?
You are able to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building waste such as stone or garden soil, the maximum size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Our standard hire term is a fortnight from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is best for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.
We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Coseley?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you will have to secure authorisation from the local authority in Coseley, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
Where will my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?
The materials in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, like soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for larger tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Coseley businesses which produce a significant volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building work. There are typically two skip sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large amounts of building and demolition materials, like garden soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builders skip, these can be used for various other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How long will it take to get a skip in Coseley?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, because electronic products including old TVs, cookers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge amounts of waste. In most cases, these containers are used for industrial uses. However, household clients can also hire them. It is important to consider the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.
Can you deliver skips across West Midlands?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Coseley, Halesowen, Aldridge, Royal Sutton Coldfield or another location in West Midlands, we are able to assist.
What is the cost of skip hire in Coseley?
The cost of getting a skip in Coseley depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can I load my skip above the level load line?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as waste could fall and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some additional rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Other areas covered include Halesowen, Aldridge, Royal Sutton Coldfield, Dudley, Bilston, Smethwick, Stourbridge and Birmingham.
