Ventnor Skip Hire FAQs

How do I hire a skip in Ventnor?

Hiring a skip in Ventnor with us is very easy. Choose the skip size you want and input a couple of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is essential to never overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you could be required to take away the excess waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is dangerous and is therefore not allowed.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Ventnor?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own land, you will save some money.

What size is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, depending on what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for household work including modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be used to dispose of heavy building waste such as rock, concrete, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning the garden shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most affordable option available.

Will you deliver to other areas in Isle of Wight?

In addition to delivering our range of skips to Ventnor, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Isle of Wight. By utilising our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Ventnor, Brading or Cowes, we have got you covered.

What skip sizes have a door?

Using a skip that has a drop door will make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials like garden soil or rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier as well.

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

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. 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 approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, these represent the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

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

Guide to skip sizes

What types of waste can I get rid of in a skip?

You can fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes like stone or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Ventnor?

We can normally deliver skips to Ventnor the next working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform provides you with a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Ventnor. We work with a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to make sure they match the high expectations we require when it comes to service, price and environmental performance.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial size skips used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste materials.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Ventnor where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in the skip?

Electronic products including television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods should be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

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

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being home when the skip arrives means you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that your skip is located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, in the event you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

What is the cost of skip hire in Ventnor?

The cost of getting a skip in Ventnor depends on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the road, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
