Crewkerne Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when the skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, if you can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
Will a Crewkerne skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a national skip service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These range from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The standard hire period will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can select a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case at busy times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Can I have a skip with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials like garden soil or stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky items like furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Crewkerne, you have various sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 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 common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances including large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more information regarding the different capacities offered, such as measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What is the size of a builders skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and demolition materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or garden soil.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your garage, these large containers tend to be the most affordable choice available.
Can I put electronic items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric products like tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you manage a business in Crewkerne and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Do you deliver skips across Somerset?
Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to domestic and industrial customers throughout Somerset and anywhere else within the UK.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Crewkerne?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
How much will skip hire in Crewkerne cost?
The price of getting a skip in Crewkerne will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How can I order a skip in Crewkerne?
We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to supply in Crewkerne. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you want the skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify your order once your order is done!
Can I load up the skip above level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will have to empty any items higher than the level load line. This means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you hire the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
What can I put in the skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the sort of waste you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to put in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use a skip to throw out building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of restricted items include electrical items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be discarded separately from any general waste.
What will happen to my waste once the skip is picked up?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
