Shanklin Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Shanklin?

Since we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified companies. These include small local skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.

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

If you have a business in Shanklin and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to standard skips, which are picked up using chains.

Which size skips will have a drop door?

Generally, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to discard heavy building waste materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or dirt.

The builders skip is great for a wide range of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the garage, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

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

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Where will my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a wide range of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent option for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most common sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also supply 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the best option. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they offer.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is based on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for domestic work such as small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

No, you are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you might be told to remove the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Providing we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.

For those who are not going to be in, simply let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you may want the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip does not prevent access to your garage.

No matter what the case might be, tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This includes items like computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and tv sets. Electrical products can’t be disposed of in the skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection date when you make your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.

Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in the skip?

This is amongst the most popular questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that will come from garden projects, building work and home clearances.

Some of the most typical things that we see in our skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, sinks, and various other household items.

There are some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (tumble dryers, monitors or cookers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them needs to comply with an entirely different process to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

If I need a skip on the road in Shanklin, will I need to get a permit?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you will need to secure permission from the local council in Shanklin, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be glad to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.

How do you hire a skip in Shanklin?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or council property (like the street). After that, pick the date you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Shanklin on the date you have selected.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Shanklin?

Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Shanklin. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
