Watlington Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Is it ok to load my skip above the top?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill your skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Watlington?
Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Watlington. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have a skip situated on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Watlington?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Do all skips have a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.
How do you order a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at the range of skips we can deliver to Watlington. Select the size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on your own property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Can you deliver skips across Oxfordshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Watlington, Banbury, Carterton, Woodstock or another area in Oxfordshire, we are able to assist.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electronic products like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric objects have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not feasible, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
What is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are great for an array of residential and business projects. These are the biggest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and bricks.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Watlington?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish which can result from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Among the most typical things which we find in our skips include soil, timber, bush trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various other household items.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electrical objects (fridges, TVs and laptops for example), car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a business in Watlington and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up using chains.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Watlington, you will have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them great for household clear ups including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
