How do you hire a skip in Seaton?

Pick the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of when and where you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify the transaction once your order is done!

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.

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

You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.

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

Unfortunately not, because electronic items including old televisions, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly manner.

If I would like a skip on a road in Seaton, will I need a permit?

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. For anyone who is carrying out a domestic task, then your driveway is going to be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Seaton. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are allowed to put a variety of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, tile, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden work is permitted as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in the skip.

There are, however, a few things that can’t be put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.

You can not throw out your fridge freezer, computer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items incorporate hazardous materials in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general waste.

If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Please email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in when it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

Having said that, if this isn’t achievable, you don’t have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the level load mark?

It is essential to never overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it becomes very dangerous to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to take off the surplus rubbish. However safe you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is unsafe and is prohibited.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential customers too. However, you need lots of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, these containers can only be provided for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and bricks.

Am I able to have a skip with a drop door?

The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can normally keep the skip for as long as two weeks from the date of delivery. It is possible to provide a chosen collection day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished, and then we will plan the collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over hectic times.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Seaton?

The cost of hiring a skip in Seaton will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also increase if you need to have the skip positioned on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What size skips can you deliver?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is ideal for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, including soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

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

Guide to skip sizes

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are ideal for a multitude of residential and commercial tasks. They are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
