Nailsworth Skip Hire FAQs

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

You don’t really need to be at home when the skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being home when the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry can be given full access and that your skip can be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the largest option that you can use for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

How long can I keep a skip for?

Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to handle, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also supply 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What waste materials can I put in the skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, you must make sure that the kind of rubbish you want to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types it is possible to put in a skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

How large is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Nailsworth?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to view all the different skips we are able to deliver to Nailsworth. Select the size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

After your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load mark. When you load it above the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

Who will deliver my skip?

Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise an extensive network of verified businesses. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What is the cost of skip hire in Nailsworth?

Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Nailsworth. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the street or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects have to be kept separate from general waste materials to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical goods such as cookers, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Can you deliver skips across Gloucestershire?

Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we are able to supply skips to domestic and business customers throughout Gloucestershire and anywhere else in the UK.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge amounts of waste. Mostly, these skips are hired for industrial applications. However, household customers may also order them. You will need to take into account the space they take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for lightweight materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and stone.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Nailsworth?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a domestic project, then your driveway will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to get a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Nailsworth. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

What happens to my waste when the skip is picked up?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility in or local to Nailsworth where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Nailsworth?

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

Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Can I get a skip that has a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop down door helps make filling waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like dirt or rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier too.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

Other areas covered include Minchinhampton, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud, Chipping Sodbury, Cheltenham, Dursley, Painswick and Winchcombe.
