Tipton Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of skip hire in Tipton?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Tipton, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
Will a skip hire company from Tipton deliver my skip?
A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Tipton. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide companies to allow us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully vetted to make certain they match the high standards we demand when it comes to customer service, cost and environmental performance.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when the skip is delivered, but it can help. Being there whenever the skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your company property, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can usually have a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You may provide a preferred collection day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
Am I able to throw electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic products like old televisions, fridges, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
No, you are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste materials up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you could be asked to take off the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Midlands?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Tipton, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within West Midlands. With the help of a network of local and national skip companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Tipton, Sedgley or Royal Sutton Coldfield, we have got it covered.
What waste can I put in the skip?
Prior to hiring a skip, it is essential to check that the type of waste you want to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could put in your skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, like old bricks, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
If I would like a skip on the road in Tipton, will I need to get a permit?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are doing a residential task, then your drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Tipton. If this is required, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
What size skips can have a drop door?
Virtually all containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Tipton?
When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY tasks and household clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Tipton businesses which have a large volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like wood, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for a multitude of residential and commercial tasks. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste such as top soil, rubble and concrete.
How can I order a skip online?

Then, pick the date you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Tipton on the date you have selected.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
If you operate a company in Tipton and want to dispose of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are picked up using chains.
