Fairford Skip Hire FAQs
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Fairford?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Fairford, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each size will cost you to hire. If your skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Fairford, you have multiple sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for house clearances involving bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.
To get more information regarding the various capacities available, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to access where you want it located, we will take care of everything.
In the event you will not be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located on a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
What is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for a wide variety of residential and industrial jobs. They are the biggest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.
How do I order a skip online?
We have developed our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your address to view the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Fairford. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you want the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify the transaction as soon as your booking is done!
What size skips have got a door?
For anyone who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, though these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of verified businesses. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we can even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the order process.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Will you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?
Along with delivering skips and containers to Fairford, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Gloucestershire. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Fairford, Bradley Stoke or Cinderford, we have got it covered.
What will happen to the waste?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste types, such as stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can generally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.
Can I put all types of waste in a skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste you intend to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you can put in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to throw out building and demolition waste, such as bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from general waste.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Fairford?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered objects including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products must be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
Is it ok to load up the skip above the side?
It is important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being told to remove excess waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded container is hazardous, as materials could drop and result in injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please ensure that you hire a skip size suitable for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
