Lampeter Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will give you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
How do I hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Lampeter with us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you will need and then input a few details about when and where you want the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Lampeter?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a household project, then the driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Lampeter. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip is regarded as the common skip used across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and construction projects, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest size which can be used for heavy waste such as soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Lampeter?
We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Can I get a skip which has a drop door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction waste, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop door, however these are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is supplied.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Lampeter and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What waste can I put in a skip?
Before you hire a skip, you must make sure that the sort of waste you want to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could discard in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, like bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be discarded separately from general waste.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Lampeter?
The cost of hiring a skip in Lampeter is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the road, since you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Lampeter where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
It is essential to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to take away the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Electronic objects including television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
Do I need to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you want it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates restrict access.
Having said that, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t need to stress. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle everything.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
If you operate a company in Lampeter and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted using chains.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact size available from skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
How many different skip sizes are there?
This site offers a complete variety of skip capacities to domestic and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sized skips available, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
