Deal Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for numerous types of household and commercial projects. These are the biggest sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and bricks.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in the skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical items such as old televisions, cookers, pcs and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
Am I allowed to fill the skip above the level load mark?
It is vital to never overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be required to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is not allowed.
Do you deliver skips across Kent?
In addition to delivering skips to Deal, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Kent. Through our network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Deal, Dover or Westerham, we have got it covered.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to get rid of significant quantities of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are used for business uses. However, domestic clients may also hire them. You should take into account the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for light waste such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and rubble.
What size skips can have a door?
Virtually all containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with weighty materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Deal?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you have got to get authorisation from the local authority in Deal, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the license, plus you should know before ordering that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or council property (such as the street). Then, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Deal on the day you have chosen.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Deal where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can access where you want it located, we can manage it all.
When you will not be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located at a particular area of the property. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder use of your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the lorry driver.
What is the cost of skip hire in Deal?
The cost of getting a skip in Deal will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What kinds of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish which will result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things that we collect in our skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, cupboards, sinks, as well as other household products.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, televisions and washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to adhere to a completely different process to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Deal?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually provide a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a street), you need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen pick up date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic times.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Deal?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Deal and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are approved and tested to make certain they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What skip sizes can you provide?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Deal, you will have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The 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, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them ideal for house clear ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light waste, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
