Taunton Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver to other areas in Somerset?
We provide a national skip hire service through a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Taunton, Midsomer Norton, Glastonbury, Wincanton or any other location in Somerset, we can assist.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a business in Taunton and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a fantastic option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Will a skip hire company from Taunton deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
Is it okay to load my skip higher than the side?
No, you can only pack your skip up to the level load line. Piling rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you can be asked to remove the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates restrict access.
However, if that isn’t achievable, you do not have to stress. Just tell us when you are making your order, and we will handle the rest.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are suited to numerous household and industrial projects. They are the largest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.
What size is the mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost depends on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household work including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How do I hire a skip in Taunton?
We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your delivery address to see all the different skip sizes we can supply in Taunton. Pick the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify your order once your booking is done!
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical items such as old televisions, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
What waste materials can I put in a skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes like concrete or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for as long as two weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a preferred pick up day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste streams, such as timber, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How much does skip hire in Taunton cost?
Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Taunton. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip situated on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Our company offers a complete selection of skip sizes to household and commercial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sized skips to choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually give you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to be on public property (like a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a AM or PM slot.
If I require a skip on the road in Taunton, will I need to have a permit?
Usually, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you have got to get consent from the local council in Taunton, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
