Warwick Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.

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

Mini skips are best for domestic tasks like modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?

It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.

The same thing applies if you have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips come in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is ideal for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title suggests, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?

If you operate a company in Warwick and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Warwick where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

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

Our online booking platform will provide you with a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Warwick?

Our aim is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Warwick. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Warwick?

Generally, it is possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to get this done, you have got to get approval from the local authority in Warwick, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and computer monitors. Electrical objects can’t be discarded in a skip because they can include dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

What waste can I put in a skip?

Before ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the kind of waste you intend to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you can throw in a skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, including timber, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of forbidden items include electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

Will you deliver to other areas in Warwickshire?

Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can offer skips to both household and commercial customers across Warwickshire and anywhere else within the UK.

Will a skip hire company from Warwick deliver my skip?

As we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These can include small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.

Can I load up the skip above the top?

It is important never to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded container is dangerous, as waste could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this situation, please be sure to hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What skip sizes will have a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door will make filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials such as garden soil or hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky objects like furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are perfect for a multitude of household and industrial projects. These are the largest skips that can be used for hefty builders waste such as garden soil, rubble and gravel.

Other areas covered include Leamington Spa, Whitnash, Southam, Coleshill, Rugby, Shipston-on-Stour, Henley-In-Arden and Nuneaton.
