Walsall Skip Hire FAQs
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Walsall, you will have several options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are perfect for house clearances including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the various sizes available, including dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will typically offer you a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a street), you will need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection day when you place your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It could take a little longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What size skips have a door?
Having a skip which has a drop door makes loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste materials such as soil or stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky objects such as furniture much easier too.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be hired by residential customers as well. Having said that, you should have a lot of room since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Can you deliver to other areas in West Midlands?
We offer a national skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Walsall, Blackheath, Brownhills, Bloxwich or another location in West Midlands, we are able to assist.
How do you hire a skip online?
Hiring a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to see the range of skips we are able to deliver to Walsall. Pick which size you wish to order, and confirm if it will be located on private property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Walsall and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are approved and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
If I would like a skip on a road in Walsall, will I need to get a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip is on private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Can I dispose of all kinds of waste in my skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that will come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most common things which we find in our skips include soil, wood, hedge trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various household products.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electronic objects (refrigerators, TVs or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not cause damage to the environment.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous visits to your local recycling centre.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that is not achievable, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often supplied for building and demolition projects. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which you can use to dispose of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as soil, concrete and rock.
Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for multiple other household and business waste disposal jobs.
What happens to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the cost of skip hire in Walsall?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Walsall. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
Can I fill the skip higher than the top?
It is important not to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that if you overfill your skip, you might be required to take off the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic products including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods need to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
