Llandovery Skip Hire FAQs

Can you deliver skips across Dyfed?

We provide a UK wide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Llandovery, Cardigan, Narberth, Fishguard or another area in Dyfed, we are able to help.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Llandovery?

Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Llandovery. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip situated on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What skip sizes can you supply?

We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.

For Llandovery businesses which produce a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Electrical products such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products must be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we can access the place you need it located, we will take care of everything.

If you are not likely to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you may want the skip to be located at a particular part of the drive. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, let us know when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

How do you order a skip online?

We have designed our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to enter your delivery address to view the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Llandovery. Select the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of when and where you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify the transaction once your booking is complete!

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Llandovery?

Generally, it is possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But in order to do this, you have got to get permission from your local council in Llandovery, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Getting a skip with a drop down door will make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as garden soil and stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky objects such as pieces of furniture much easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the level load line?

You must not fill your skip past the level load line. When you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip will not be secure to move, and you may be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being collected.

What things can I put in the skip?

You can use your skip to get rid of many different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and handling a multitude of items from building jobs, garden landscaping and home clean-ups. A few examples of permitted waste materials can include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of waste types are generally permitted, and so whether you need to throw out furniture, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and things you throw into the skip will vary depending on which size skip you have ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you need to dispose of soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some materials which you will not be able to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items contain hazardous elements which may be damaging to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately under UK law.

A few examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What size is a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction projects. There are generally two sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as dirt, concrete and bricks.

Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Llandovery?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

What will happen to my waste once the skip is picked up?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into different waste materials, such as wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to transport significant volumes of waste. Generally, these containers are hired for industrial purposes. However, household customers may also use them. You will need to consider the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be used for light-weight materials such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.

Other areas covered include Cardigan, Narberth, Fishguard, Tenby, Aberystwyth, Llanybydder, St Clears and Neyland.
