Nuneaton Skip Hire FAQs

How do you hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Then, pick the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Nuneaton on the date you have selected.

Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being in whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip is located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, for those who can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce large amounts of waste.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

Do you deliver skips across Warwickshire?

We provide a national skip hire and recycling service using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you want skip hire in Nuneaton, Stratford-upon-Avon, Southam, Shipston-on-Stour or any other area in Warwickshire, we are able to assist.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electronic objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items need to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Nuneaton?

In most cases, it is possible to have the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you have got to get approval from your local authority in Nuneaton, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

A builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to get rid of substantial building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or dirt.

A builder’s skip is great for a number of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most affordable choice available.

Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is important not to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be asked to take away the excess rubbish. However secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

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

The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, such as soil, paper, stone and timber. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, it is essential to ensure that the kind of waste you need to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials have to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can put in your skip include household goods like furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and construction rubbish, like old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Some examples of prohibited items include things like electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from any general rubbish.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most often hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Nuneaton?

This is determined by the skip size you need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

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

When you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted journey.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Our company offers a complete range of skip sizes to residential and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Below are the various sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of waste each size is capable of holding:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags

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

If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, though these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Nuneaton?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Nuneaton. We work with a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively assessed to be sure they satisfy the high standards we demand in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
