Moreton-in-Marsh Skip Hire FAQs

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Moreton-in-Marsh?

The cost of hiring a skip in Moreton-in-Marsh is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

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

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport large volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these type of containers are hired for industrial purposes. However, residential customers can also hire them. You should take into account the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

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

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

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

However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips are available in a variety of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip may be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Moreton-in-Marsh?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you need to obtain authorisation from your local authority in Moreton-in-Marsh, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electrical products like old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.

How do you order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the street). After that, select the day you want the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Moreton-in-Marsh on the date you have selected.

Do all skips have a drop door?

When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop door, however they are less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

Is it ok to load the skip above the level load line?

I’m afraid not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

What things can I put in my skip?

You can use your skip to discard a variety of waste types. We are used to collecting and processing numerous items produced from building jobs, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste materials include things like:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials will be allowed, and so whether you want to discard metals, plastics, wood or old toys, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and things you put in your skip can vary based on which size skip you hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like get rid of top soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size container you would be able to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

What type of items am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are several items you are not permitted to get rid of in your skip. The reason behind this is that some goods include hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK legislation.

A few of the items which are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Moreton-in-Marsh where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be hired to dispose of heavy construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.

The builder’s skip is great for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the garage, these substantial containers are usually the most affordable choice available.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can generally keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection day when you make your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
