Solihull Skip Hire FAQs

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted trip.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be used by residential customers also. Having said that, you should have a good amount of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, roro containers should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Solihull?

We have developed our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Solihull. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to confirm the order once your order is done!

Will you deliver skips across West Midlands?

Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can deliver skips to residential and industrial customers throughout West Midlands and anywhere else in the UK.

Will a Solihull skip hire company deliver my skip?

As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can generally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing 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 circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It might take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

What things can I put in the skip?

You can put a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or rubble from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden work is allowed too. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.

However, there are a few items that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risk they might cause.

You are unable to get rid of your fridge freezer, laptop or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous components in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to organise a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is collected?

The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, such as soil, plastics, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.

Is it ok to fill up my skip above the level load line?

You must not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.

If I require a skip on the road in Solihull, will I need to have a permit?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or home, you will need to receive permission from the local council in Solihull, which is known as a permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Solihull?

The cost of hiring a skip in Solihull depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and construction projects, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest option which you can use for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Getting a skip with a drop door helps make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste such as soil or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects like furniture easier too.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although this may sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.

Having said that, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when making your booking, and we will handle everything.

Can I throw electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric products like cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 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 waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, they are the most common sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, such as soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
