What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest containers that can be hired to dispose of heavy construction materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out the shed, these big containers are often the most affordable choice available.

Can you deliver skips across Suffolk?

As well as delivering skips to Saxmundham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Suffolk. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Saxmundham, Needham Market or Beccles, we have got you covered.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. Providing we can access the place you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.

In the event you are not going to be in, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped on a particular part of the property. Alternatively, you might want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, provide the information when you place your order, and we will make sure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

I’m afraid not, since electronic items including old TVs, refrigerators, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.

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

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Saxmundham where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

You should not load your skip beyond the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you could be asked to take off any excess waste before it can be collected.

Am I able to throw all types of rubbish in a skip?

A skip may be used to dispose of many different types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling a wide variety of items generated from construction jobs, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste types can include:

  • Household furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many materials are usually permitted, and so whether you need to dispose of metals, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and things you throw in the skip will vary according to the size skip you chosen. All skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like get rid of top soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size container you would be permitted to use will be the 8 yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some waste items which you are not able to dump in the skip. The main reason for this is that these items contain hazardous materials that may be harmful to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK regulations.

Some examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of skips are hired for business purposes. However, household customers can also use them. It is very important look at the area they take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Saxmundham, you have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them perfect for house tidy ups involving large items like furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or stone.

For additional information about the various capacities offered, including measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?

Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when hiring a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to the local recycling centre.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Saxmundham?

This depends upon the size you need and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Saxmundham?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will normally give you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (like a street), you will have to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it arriving within a morning or afternoon slot.

If I want a skip on the road in Saxmundham, will I need a permit?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.

If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own land, it will save you some pounds.

How can I hire a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Saxmundham with us is incredibly simple. Pick the skip size you want and input a couple of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
