Didcot Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Didcot through us is very easy. Select the skip size you will need and input a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Didcot, you will have various options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest domestic 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 rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for house tidy ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for light materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For further information about the various sizes offered, including proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Do you deliver to other areas in Oxfordshire?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Didcot, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Oxfordshire. Through our network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Didcot, Burford or Chipping Norton, we have got you covered.
What types of waste can you put in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, you must check that the kind of rubbish you need to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could put in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, such as bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of prohibited items include electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
What is the cost of skip hire in Didcot?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Didcot, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which skip sizes we provide in your town and how much each option costs to hire. If your skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Where does my waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station either in or local to Didcot where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Didcot?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the order process.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Didcot?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. When you are doing a domestic project, then the driveway will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you have got to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or other public property in Didcot. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Will a skip hire company from Didcot deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Didcot. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to make sure they satisfy the high principles we require with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The regular hire time frame will be 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is finished with sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
We can usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
No, you can only pack the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you might be told to take off the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is delivered, but it will help. Being in when the skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the driver is given full access and that your skip can be placed precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be around for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest skips used to get rid of weighty construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the garage, these large skips tend to be the most affordable option available.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electric powered items such as tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered objects should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a company in Didcot and wish to get rid of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the label suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Typically, most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
