Ilminster Skip Hire FAQs

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to discard substantial construction waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or garden soil.

The builder’s skip is great for a wide array of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out your garden shed, these substantial skips are often the most cost-effective solution available.

Will the skip have a drop door?

Typically, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Ilminster?

Since we provide a national skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These range from small local skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Can I fill the skip above the top?

You must not fill up your skip past the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove the extra waste before it can be picked up.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Ilminster?

This depends on the size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Ilminster?

If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the online order process.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is delivered, however it will help. Being there when the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip is placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.

Can I throw away electronic products in the skip?

Unfortunately not, since electronic products including old TVs, refrigerators, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are primarily for business use but can be hired by residential customers too. Having said that, you need a lot of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roro containers can only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

How do you order a skip?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter your address to look at the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Ilminster. Pick which size you wish to hire, and confirm if it will be located on your own property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Do you deliver to other areas in Somerset?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Ilminster, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Somerset. With the help of a network of local and national skip hire companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Ilminster, Midsomer Norton or Chard, we have got it covered.

What waste materials can I put in my skip?

You may use your skip to throw out a variety of waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling lots of items generated from construction jobs, garden landscaping and property clearances. Examples of permitted waste types include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many different materials are accepted, therefore whether you want to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you put into your skip may vary depending on the size skip you hired. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So to be able to discard soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size you would be permitted to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are some waste materials which you are not permitted to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these products contain hazardous elements that may be damaging to the environment. They may also be damaging to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to take on numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

If I would like a skip on the road in Ilminster, will I need to have a permit?

Generally, it is possible to get a skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you will need to get consent from the local council in Ilminster, which is called a skip permit. We are able to arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Ilminster, you will have several sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY jobs.

The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to light waste, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or stone.

To get more information about the various capacities offered, including proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

Where does my waste go when the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Ilminster where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Other areas covered include Midsomer Norton, Chard, North Petherton, Crewkerne, Shepton Mallet, Street, Watchet and Minehead.
