Ferndown Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this is not achievable, you do not have to be concerned. Just let us know when making your order, and we will take care of everything.
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you may be asked to empty any materials higher than the level load line. This means you can not make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you hire the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size is best. We will be happy to help.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We can offer a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Ferndown businesses which have a large volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will a skip hire company from Ferndown deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of approved businesses. These can vary from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I allowed to dispose of all types of rubbish in a skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste in the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, a few things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the possible environment or health risk they may trigger.
You can not get rid of your fridge, printer or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please get in touch for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a range of waste types, such as timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

This includes all electric powered items such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
What size is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, determined by what sizes they offer.
2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household tasks including small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted trip.
If I need a skip on the road in Ferndown, will I need to have a permit?
In most cases, it will be possible to get the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you need to have approval from the local authority in Ferndown, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like household furniture.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suitable for numerous domestic and commercial jobs. They are the largest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, stone and bricks.
