FAQ

New To Skip Hire?

Dont Panic! In this FAQ you will find answers to the most common questions we get asked here at Bobs Skips.

How do I know what size skip I will need?
Firstly, check out our skip size guide. If you are still unsure, pick up the phone and give us a call!
How long can I keep the skip for?
The normal hire period is 7 days, but we can usually arrange a longer hire if required.
I havent got a driveway, or garden to place the skip. Can it be placed on the road?
No problem. We take care of arranging the council permit to do so. Currently the cost of the permit is £20. Please allow 5 days for the council to process your permit.

What if the Council refuse the permit?
Although rare, it can happen. We offer a Wait & Load service, which means our driver will wait with the the skip, while you fill it up.

How much can put in a skip?
All we ask is that the top of the load is below the top of the skip.
What is a drop-end skip?
A drop-end skip is a normal skip, but one end drops down to create a ramp into the skip. This type of skip is great when loading up with a wheel-barrow. These are currently available in 4, 6 & 8 yard sizes.
Is there anything I cannot put into a skip?
Yes, lead acid batteries, fridges & freezers, asbestos, plasterboard, gas bottles and tyres are NOT allowed. If you are unsure if your load may cause a problem, Call Us, and we can discuss it.
What happens to my waste after you collect the skip?
Being a licensed waste transfer station, your waste is sorted, and whatever can be recycled gets sepearated and sent away, with the remainder going to landfill.
Do you offer waste disposal services for builders and contractors?
Yes we do, we are a licensed waste carrier. Contact us to discuss your requirements.
