West Mersea Skip Hire FAQs

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, though these are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

What can I put in my skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of rubbish that can result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most common items that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and other household items.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electrical items (tumble dryers, TVs or computers for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them has to comply with a completely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. You are able to give a preferred pick up date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer during hectic times.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to West Mersea?

We can typically deliver skips to West Mersea the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system gives you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is 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 roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, they are the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in West Mersea?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. When you are carrying out a domestic task, then your drive will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to have a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in West Mersea. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.

Will a skip hire company from West Mersea deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These substantial containers are suited to numerous residential and commercial projects. They are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste including soil, stone and gravel.

Is it okay to fill the skip above the level load mark?

It is vital never to overload your skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to transport. This means that when you overfill the skip, you could be required to take off the surplus rubbish. However secure you believe the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that your skip can be located exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, when you can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be hired by residential customers too. However, you will want lots of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in West Mersea?

Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in West Mersea. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip located on the street or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of a skip permit.

Do you deliver to other areas in Essex?

Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can provide skips to both household and commercial customers across Essex and elsewhere within the UK.

Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electrical products like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric products have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

What will happen to my waste once the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, including timber, metals, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Other areas covered include Great Dunmow, Braintree, Chelmsford, Harlow, Southminster, Witham, Frinton-on-Sea and Brightlingsea.
