Whitnash Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Whitnash?
If possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. If you are carrying out a household task, then a drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in Whitnash. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Can you deliver skips across Warwickshire?
Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout Warwickshire, including Whitnash, Atherstone, Henley-In-Arden and Rugby. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip which is used across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the largest option that can be used for hefty materials such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials like soil and concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky objects like furniture easier also.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, but it will sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What things can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are permitted also. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in your skip.
There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they might cause.
You cannot throw out your fridge, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise a separate service for this waste. Please email for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
How long will it take to get a skip in Whitnash?
We will ensure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very 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 in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.
How do you hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). After that, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your skip to Whitnash on the date you have selected.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a business in Whitnash and wish to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that can be hired.
As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.
Am I allowed to load my skip higher than level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will then be asked to empty any items above the level load line. This also means that you are unable to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you order the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We will be happy to help.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be segregated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, like metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to increase the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Whitnash, you have various sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which 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 well suited for household tidy ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For further details about the various capacities offered, such as dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Am I able to throw electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid not, as electronic items including old televisions, refrigerators, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Whitnash?
Our aim is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Whitnash. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the road or other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
