Eccleshall Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Eccleshall deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

What happens to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste streams, which includes timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How much does skip hire in Eccleshall cost?

The price of getting a skip in Eccleshall will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you need to have a skip on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Can I load up the skip higher than the top?

It is important to not overload the skip. You should not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if this is not feasible, you don’t need to stress. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.

Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items such as cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will typically give you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can usually hire a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection date when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It might take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition work, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste like garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

How do you hire a skip in Eccleshall?

Hiring a skip in Eccleshall with us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you will need and input a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to handle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Eccleshall?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

This is one of the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste which will come from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Among the most frequent items that we find in skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various household products.

However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical items (refrigerators, monitors and laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them needs to comply with an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, like soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also provide 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to get rid of large amounts of waste. These bins are mainly for business use but can be hired by domestic customers also. However, you need a lot of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, RORO containers should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
