Shipston-on-Stour Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.
However, if this isn’t possible, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any materials above the level load line. This also means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you choose the correct size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be glad to help.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric powered goods such as cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, like soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
Can I dispose of all sorts of waste in a skip?
This is among the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that could result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.
Among the most frequent things which we see in our skips include garden soil, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen units, baths, as well as other household objects.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electrical goods (dishwashers, monitors or cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and disposing of them has to adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Shipston-on-Stour?
We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Shipston-on-Stour. Select the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your order is done!
Where will the rubbish be taken to once the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a number of waste types, including timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What size skips can you supply?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Shipston-on-Stour, you will have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are suitable for household clear ups involving large items such as furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the different capacities offered, such as proportions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
How quick can you deliver a skip in Shipston-on-Stour?
We can typically deliver skips to Shipston-on-Stour the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. In most cases, these type of containers are used for business applications. However, domestic customers may also order them. You have to take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for lightweight waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and stone.
Do you deliver skips across Warwickshire?
Sure, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas across Warwickshire, including Shipston-on-Stour, Southam, Alcester and Stratford-upon-Avon. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers used to discard weighty building waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or dirt.
The builders skip is great for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing the attic, these big skips tend to be the most cost-effective option available.
If I want a skip on the road in Shipston-on-Stour, will I need a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
Will a Shipston-on-Stour skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use an extensive network of approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can generally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of offering a preferred collection time when you make your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Shipston-on-Stour?
This depends on the size you require and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.
