Rugeley Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Rugeley. We make use of a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to offer our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to guarantee they satisfy the high principles we demand when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Rugeley, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest home clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them perfect for house clearances including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For more information regarding the various sizes offered, including dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
What can I put in the skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish which can result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most typical items that we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, hedge cuttings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household products.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. For example, any electrical items (fridge freezers, monitors and laptops for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must comply with an entirely different process to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Do you deliver to other areas in Staffordshire?
Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers across Staffordshire and anywhere else within the UK.
If I want a skip on the road in Rugeley, will I need a permit?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to secure permission from the local authority in Rugeley, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad 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 soon as possible.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into various waste streams, including timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably have to remove any rubbish above the level load line. This means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to select the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
How much does skip hire in Rugeley cost?
The price of getting a skip in Rugeley depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you need to have your skip on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door helps make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste like soil and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Rugeley?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at the range of skips we can deliver to Rugeley. Choose the size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be dropped on your own property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of huge quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, residential clients may also hire them. It is essential to consider the space they will occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.
How long does it take to get a skip in Rugeley?
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 date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.
The builders skip is ideal for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the garden shed, these large containers are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it located, we are able to manage it all.
In the event you are not going to be at home, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you might want the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your driveway. Or you may need to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical products including tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
