Royal Wootton Bassett Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

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

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

How long does it take to get a skip in Royal Wootton Bassett?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.

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

You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Royal Wootton Bassett?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Royal Wootton Bassett. We employ a network of both local and national companies to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to be sure they fulfill the high principles we require when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Can I fill the skip above level load mark?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will be asked to empty any rubbish above the level load mark. This means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to ensure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you select the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be happy to help.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The term builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial skips are suited to a multitude of domestic and business projects. These are the largest skip sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste such as top soil, stone and concrete.

Do you deliver to other areas in Wiltshire?

We offer a national skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Royal Wootton Bassett, Amesbury, Highworth, Malmesbury or any other site in Wiltshire, we are able to help.

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Royal Wootton Bassett?

This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or on your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on council property (such as the road). Then, choose the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Royal Wootton Bassett on the day you have selected.

What can I put in my skip?

Before hiring your skip, you must check that the kind of waste you intend to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include household items like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

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

How much does skip hire in Royal Wootton Bassett cost?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Royal Wootton Bassett, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your town and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip will be on the highway or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that generate large quantities of waste.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t have to be home when your skip is delivered, however it does help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip will be dropped precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How long can I keep the skip for?

Generally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?

The items in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, including metal, cardboard, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

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

Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

Can I throw away electronic items in the skip?

No, you can not throw old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as computers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and television sets. These objects can’t be thrown in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are offered in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these are the most popular sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
