Crediton Skip Hire FAQs
How many different skip sizes are available?
We offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for larger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Crediton companies with a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this isn’t possible, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when making your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge volumes of waste. In most cases, these type of containers are hired for industrial uses. However, residential clients can also use them. It is essential to consider the space they take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Electrical products such as televisions, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Crediton?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you have got to secure permission from the local council in Crediton, which is called a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the permit, plus you should be aware before booking that getting the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the level load line?
You must not load the skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you can be asked to take off any extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.
What is the cost of skip hire in Crediton?
The price of hiring a skip in Crediton depends on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the best solution. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for household jobs including small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in the skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is permitted too. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in the skip.
However, there are a few items that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risk they can trigger.
You can not get rid of your freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous components in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Feel free to email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Can I have a skip that has a drop down door?
In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and location. 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 if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently used for construction projects. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, including soil, concrete and rock.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How can I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). Next, select the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Crediton on the day you have chosen.
Do you deliver skips across Devon?
Absolutely. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can deliver skips to both residential and industrial customers throughout Devon and anywhere else within the UK.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for a wasted trip.
