Stratton Skip Hire FAQs

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Stratton?

Normally, it is possible to get the skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you will need to get permission from the local authority in Stratton, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What happens to the rubbish?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, including metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

How do you hire a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on council property (such as the road). Then, choose the day you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Stratton on the date you have chosen.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Stratton?

A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Stratton. We utilize a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to ensure they satisfy the high principles we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Stratton?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online 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.

When you confirm your booking before 3pm on 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 strive to offer you a morning or afternoon 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 unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a fee for the wasted trip.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably be asked to empty any items over the level load mark. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or another item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to order the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are unsure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in at the time it is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates limit access.

However, if this is not possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and we will take care of the rest.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.

What can I put in the skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish which will come from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.

Some of the most common things which we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, cupboards, baths, and various other household products.

There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electronic goods (tumble dryers, televisions and washing machines for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and getting rid of them has to abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Our company offers a full selection of skip capacities to residential and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the different skip sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each skip is capable of holding:

Can you deliver to other areas in Cornwall?

As well as delivering our range of skips to Stratton, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Cornwall. With the help of a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Stratton, Bodmin or Hugh Town, we have got you covered.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

Our standard hire term will be 2 weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can provide a pick up date that will work for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to your local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical items including tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.

Which size skips have got a drop door?

In general, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since 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 hired to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.

The builders skip is great for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the garden shed, these large skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.

How much will skip hire in Stratton cost?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Stratton. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have the skip situated on the street or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.

Other areas covered include Bodmin, Hugh Town, St Columb Major, Market Jew, St Just, Fowey, Redruth and Callington.
