South Molton Skip Hire FAQs

Is it okay to load my skip above level load line?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you may be asked to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This also means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure you select the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.

How do you order a skip in South Molton?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Then, choose the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to South Molton on the date you have selected.

Can you deliver skips across Devon?

As well as delivering skips to South Molton, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Devon. Through a network of local and national skip hire businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to South Molton, Axminster or Ottery St Mary, we have got it covered.

Am I allowed to put all kinds of waste in my skip?

You can use a skip to get rid of many different waste types. We are used to picking up and handling lots of materials from construction work, garden projects and household tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste types include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom toilets and sinks
  • Cabinets and units

The majority of materials are generally permitted, therefore whether you need to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or old toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and things you discard in your skip will vary based on the size skip you have chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you need to discard top soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you will be allowed to use will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

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

There are a few items which you are not able to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that some items include hazardous elements that may cause damage to the environment. They could also be damaging to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK laws.

Examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted journey.

Will my skip have a drop door?

Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Will a skip hire company from South Molton deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in South Molton and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are approved and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste streams, like wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in South Molton?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or home, you must obtain authorisation from the local authority in South Molton, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for your road permit, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I throw electrical products in my skip?

Electronic items like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric products must be separated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is designed for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How big is a builders skip?

A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to get rid of weighty building and demolition materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.

A builder’s skip is perfect for a number of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your shed, these large skips will often be the most affordable choice available.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?

If you run a business in South Molton and wish to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.

What is the cost of skip hire in South Molton?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in South Molton, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost to order.

How long can I hire a skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when your skip is being delivered, however it does help. Being there when your skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to a company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, if you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.

Other areas covered include Axminster, Ottery St Mary, Great Torrington, Barnstaple, Wotton Cross, Tavistock, North Tawton and Dartmouth.
