Moretonhampstead Skip Hire FAQs

How fast can you deliver a skip in Moretonhampstead?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

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

You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into a variety of waste streams, such as stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

Do you deliver to other areas in Devon?

As well as delivering our range of skips to Moretonhampstead, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Devon. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Moretonhampstead, Exeter or Newton Abbot, we have got you covered.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small residential jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent choice for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for construction waste, like clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products such as washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Moretonhampstead?

This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save some money.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips used to dispose of weighty building waste materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.

A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your loft space, these substantial skips are often the most affordable solution available.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Moretonhampstead and the rest of the country. Our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop door?

Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.

Can I fill the skip above the top?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will then have to remove any items over the level load mark. This means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to hire the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates limit access.

However, if that is not feasible, you don’t have to worry. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and we will handle everything.

What can I put in the skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of materials from building jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste products include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of waste materials will be accepted, and so whether you need to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and items you discard in your skip can vary depending on which size skip you have ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to discard soil and bricks, as an example, the largest size you would be permitted to use is the 8 yard skip.

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

There are some waste items you will not be allowed to get rid of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items contain hazardous materials which could be harmful to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.

Examples of the things that are restricted include:

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

How much will skip hire in Moretonhampstead cost?

Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Moretonhampstead. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip situated on the highway or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that provides you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

Other areas covered include Exeter, Newton Abbot, Honiton, Totnes, Bovey Tracey, Kingsbridge, Salcombe and Axminster.
