Woburn Skip Hire FAQs
What size skips can you deliver?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Woburn, you will have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest home clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are perfect for house clearances involving large objects like household furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further details about the various skip sizes available, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Do you deliver to other areas in Bedfordshire?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Bedfordshire and elsewhere within the UK.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Woburn?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Woburn. We utilize a network of both regional and nationwide companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly assessed to guarantee they fulfill the high principles we require with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
Am I allowed to throw electronic items in the skip?
I’m afraid not, because electronic products such as old TVs, cookers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that could come from garden projects, building work and home clearances.
Among the most typical things which we find in skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, cupboards, toilets, and various other household items.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical items (fridges and freezers, televisions or printers for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to adhere to a completely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What happens to the waste when the skip is picked up?
After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Woburn where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Woburn?
We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to type in your delivery address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Woburn. Pick the right size to meet your needs and enter the details of when and where you need the skip delivered. You then make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your booking is complete!
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Woburn?
The cost of getting a skip in Woburn depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How long does it take to get a skip in Woburn?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Woburn?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place the skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Virtually all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as furniture.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial size skips used primarily in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
Can I load up the skip above level load mark?
No. You must only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.
The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip that is hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest option that you can use for hefty waste like dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
