Coventry Skip Hire FAQs
Can I throw all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste including stone or soil, the maximum size you could get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for as long as 14 days from the delivery date. You are able to provide a preferred collection date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a little bit longer during hectic periods.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Coventry?
Normally, it will be possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you have got to get consent from the local authority in Coventry, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
We offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger sized jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Coventry companies which produce a significant amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
If you require help deciding on which size skip you require, have a look at our helpful skip size comparison.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
If you operate a business in Coventry and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Coventry?
This depends on the size you require and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

Am I able to throw electrical items in my skip?
Electrical objects such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical goods must be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Coventry where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the loft, these large containers are usually the most affordable choice available.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Then, pick the date you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Coventry on the day you have chosen.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip arrives means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is hired to a company premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise everything from there.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit 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 being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful if choosing a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.
Can I load my skip higher than the level load line?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you can be told to get rid of 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 hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Can you deliver skips across West Midlands?
Yes. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to both residential and industrial customers across West Midlands and elsewhere within the UK.
Will a Coventry skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
