Wotton Cross Skip Hire FAQs

What waste materials can I put in my skip?

It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip depends on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste including bricks or dirt, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple trips to your local recycling centre.

How long can I hire the skip for?

Our regular hire time frame is two weeks from your delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can choose a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is full earlier than expected, contact us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.

We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as 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 can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for garden clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building waste, such as soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I fill the skip above the level load line?

It is important never to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it becomes very dangerous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you might be required to take off the surplus waste. However secure you believe the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Wotton Cross?

Preferably, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a residential project, then a driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you will need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Wotton Cross. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

What is the cost of skip hire in Wotton Cross?

Our goal is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Wotton Cross. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

How can I order a skip online?

We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to see the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Wotton Cross. Pick the right size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to verify the transaction as soon as your order is done!

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Wotton Cross and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner companies are verified and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Wotton Cross, Exeter, Moretonhampstead, Sidmouth or any other location in Devon, we are able to assist.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Our simple online booking system will give you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want your skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

If you have a company in Wotton Cross and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great option. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips available.

As the name implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted using chains.

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

Electric powered objects such as televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is situated precisely where you need it. The same is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates restrict access.

However, if that is not possible, you do not need to be concerned. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These large containers are suited to numerous types of residential and industrial projects. These are the largest skips which can be used for heavy builders waste like top soil, rubble and gravel.

Other areas covered include Exeter, Moretonhampstead, Sidmouth, Bideford, Barnstaple, North Tawton, Chagford and Axminster.
