Wells Skip Hire FAQs
How can I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. This is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver to Wells. Choose which size you want to hire, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on your own property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
Once your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wells?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save some pounds.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Is it ok to load up the skip above level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will have to empty any materials above the level load mark. This also means you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you hire the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
What is the cost of skip hire in Wells?
This depends on the skip size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What happens to the rubbish once the skip is collected?
The waste in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, cardboard, concrete and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste that has to go in landfill.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip provided by skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can normally offer a next day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
The vast majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, like furniture.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge amounts of waste. Mostly, these skips are used for industrial applications. However, domestic clients may also use them. It is important to look at the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be utilised for lightweight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and concrete.
Do you deliver skips across Somerset?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Wells, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Somerset. Through a network of regional and national skip hire companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Wells, Chard or Dulverton, we have got you covered.
What waste can I put in my skip?
You are able to fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building waste like concrete or soil, the biggest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
However, if this isn’t possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical goods including cookers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We supply a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Wells firms which have a big quantity of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
If you require help deciding on which size skip you need, have a look at our useful skip size comparison.

We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Wells and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to discard heavy building and construction waste materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or soil.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of tasks. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your loft space, these substantial containers are often the most cost-effective solution available.
