Cullompton Skip Hire FAQs

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste. Predominantly, these containers are used for industrial applications. However, residential clients can also order them. You will need to consider the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be used for lightweight waste like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and stone.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Cullompton?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). Next, choose the day you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Cullompton on the date you have chosen.

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

How big is a builders skip?

The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest skips that can be used to discard weighty building and demolition waste materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the shed, these large containers will often be the most cost-effective choice available.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Cullompton?

Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Cullompton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the road or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t really need to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being home when your skip is delivered means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What skip sizes can you deliver?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Cullompton, you have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for household tidy ups involving bulky items like household furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.

To get more information regarding the various skip sizes available, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste streams, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Cullompton?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to get permission from the local authority in Cullompton, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, plus you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

Can you deliver skips across Devon?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to areas across Devon, including Cullompton, Ilfracombe, Great Torrington and Okehampton. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

What can I put in my skip?

Before hiring your skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste you want to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you could discard in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to discard building and construction waste, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and gravel.

Examples of forbidden items include electrical goods, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

Is it okay to fill up my skip above the level load line?

It is very important not to overload a skip, as you risk being required to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded bin will be hazardous, as objects could drop and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please ensure that you order a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products like old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?

In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long does it take to get a skip in Cullompton?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted journey.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Our standard hire time frame will be 14 days from your delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible at busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Ilfracombe, Great Torrington, Okehampton, Dawlish, Barnstaple, Paignton, Teignmouth and Chudleigh.
