How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Which size skips can have a drop door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that produce large volumes of waste materials.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household 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 location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to tackle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.

What kinds of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?

You are allowed to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy construction wastes like stone or top soil, the largest size you could hire is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for construction projects. There are generally two different sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for many other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Great Torrington?

Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Great Torrington. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Great Torrington?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you have got to secure authorisation from your local authority in Great Torrington, which is called a permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this for you, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before ordering that securing the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

How can I hire a skip in Great Torrington?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the street). Then, select the day you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Great Torrington on the date you have chosen.

Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?

It is essential to not overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overfill the skip, you might be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. However secure you think the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Am I allowed to put electronic items in my skip?

Electrical objects such as TVs, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products must be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Can you deliver skips across Devon?

Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas across Devon, including Great Torrington, Sherford, Lynton and Salcombe. So no matter where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a number of waste streams, including timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Other areas covered include Sherford, Lynton, Salcombe, Bideford, Colyton, Plymouth, Topsham and Dartmouth.
