Woodstock Skip Hire FAQs
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Woodstock?
Hiring a skip in Woodstock with us is very easy. Decide on the skip size you want and enter a few details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered to you.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the online order process.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Woodstock?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Our company offers a whole variety of skip capacities to residential and commercial clients throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Will a Woodstock skip hire company deliver my skip?

This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
What can I put in the skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that will come from garden projects, building work and household clearances.
Some of the most common items that we collect in our skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household products.
There are also some things that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electronic objects (fridges and freezers, televisions and cookers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them has to comply with an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
Can I put electronic products in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic products including old televisions, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the top?
No, you can only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The standard hire period will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip which is hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which you can use for heavy waste matter such as soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Will you deliver to other areas in Oxfordshire?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Woodstock, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Oxfordshire. With the help of a network of local and national waste management businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Woodstock, Carterton or Chipping Norton, we have got it covered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by household clients too. However, you should have a good amount of space since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roro skips can only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.
What happens to the rubbish?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What size skips have a drop down door?
For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, however these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container with a drop door is provided.
