Salisbury Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Salisbury companies which generate a big amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you need it delivered, we can take care of it all.
If you are not going to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For example, you might need the skip to be positioned at a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent use of your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
Will you deliver skips across Wiltshire?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service through a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Salisbury, Wilton, Devizes, Warminster or another location in Wiltshire, we are able to assist.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are typically less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Our regular hire time frame will be 2 weeks from your date of delivery. However, at the time you order your skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is loaded earlier than expected, contact us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I put all types of waste in my skip?
Before hiring your skip, you must ensure that the kind of waste materials you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and construction waste, including bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are fantastic for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Salisbury and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to make certain they match our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you run a company in Salisbury and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excess waste prior to it being collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as materials could fall and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this situation, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Salisbury?
The cost of getting a skip in Salisbury depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items like washing machines, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, which includes wood, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to a multitude of household and business projects. These are the largest size skips that can be used for heavy builders waste including garden soil, stone and gravel.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Salisbury?
In most cases, it is possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you will need to have consent from your local council in Salisbury, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for this license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
