What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Fortuneswell?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.

What is the cost of skip hire in Fortuneswell?

The cost of getting a skip in Fortuneswell is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can I fill the skip above the top?

It is important never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to take off the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This is unsafe and is not allowed.

Will a skip hire company from Fortuneswell deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Fortuneswell and the rest of the country. Our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make sure they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Fortuneswell?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you will have to secure authorisation from the local authority in Fortuneswell, which is called a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before booking that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are great for numerous household and business projects. These are the largest sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and bricks.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. As long as we can access where you need it located, we are able to manage everything.

If you are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.

Whatever the situation may be, let us know when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

Where will the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest skip delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by residential clients too. However, you should have plenty of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and rubble.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Typically, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Having a skip with a drop door makes loading waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials such as dirt and rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky objects such as pieces of furniture easier also.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

Am I able to throw away electrical products in the skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products including old televisions, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

What waste materials can I put in a skip?

You are allowed to put a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, tile, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden tasks are allowed also. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in a skip.

There are, however, things that can’t be put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risks they might cause.

You cannot throw out your refrigerator, printer or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your general waste.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Please get in touch for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Other areas covered include Verwood, Stalbridge, Sherborne, Sturminster Newton, Weymouth, Gillingham, Wareham and Poole.
