Wem Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the best option. What size is described as a mini skip differs from company to company, based on what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for domestic tasks such as small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

What things can I put in my skip?

You can load your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip would depend on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building wastes including rubble or soil, the biggest size you could get is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Will you deliver skips across Shropshire?

Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skips to areas throughout Shropshire, including Wem, Broseley, Oswestry and Church Stretton. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Wem the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program offers you various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you want a skip to arrive ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

Generally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be asked to take away the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

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

Generally, it will be possible to get the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you will need to get permission from your local council in Wem, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

How do I hire a skip?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Wem. Choose which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on your own property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.

As soon as 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.

How much will skip hire in Wem cost?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Wem. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip located on the highway or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 black 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 an excellent choice for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, like soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

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

These substantial containers are suited to numerous residential and business tasks. These are the largest sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste including garden soil, stone and gravel.

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

No, you do not need to be home when we deliver your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we will take care of everything.

When you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t hinder use of your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.

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

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste materials. Generally, these type of containers are hired for business applications. However, domestic clients can also use them. You should look at the space they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for lightweight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

Who will deliver my skip?

Since we provide a national skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Getting a skip with a drop door can make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials such as soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects like furniture much easier too.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

Am I allowed to throw electronic products in the skip?

No, you can not throw old electronic waste products in a skip. This can include things like laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. These items can’t be thrown in your skip since they can contain hazardous materials and components.

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

Other areas covered include Broseley, Oswestry, Church Stretton, Bishop’s Castle, Whitchurch, Bridgnorth, Cleobury Mortimer and Newport.
