Skip Hire FAQs

We’ve put together a list of common questions we recieve, so hopefully we can answer your questions quickly, if you do have a question that isn’t mentioned please get in touch and we will be happy to help.

Please visit our Skip Guide for a full list of materials, as a general rule it’s electricals and hazardous materials.

Plasterboard cannot be put directly in to the skip, but this can be added separately with plasterboard bags if requested.

Our preferred method of payment is by card over the phone, however we do accept cash and BACS payment. Payment is required on booking or delivery. Unfortunately, we will not leave a skip unless payment has been received.

A good thing to know is whether you have the skip for 1 or 7 days the cost will be the same. You are not charged by the hire period but for the waste disposal. For cash sale customers, our hire period is 7 days. If you require the skip for an additional week please contact the office and confirm this before delivery.

Unfortunately, we do not guarantee specific time for deliveries or collections. Due to the nature of the work involving everyday traffic, it is not possible for us to guarantee times.

We can offer AM (7am-12pm) or PM (1pm-4pm) slots subject to availability.

The customer must ensure that the skip is sited on private property that has the permission of the landowner. Skips will not be placed on public property without a valid permit from the relevant council.

Skips will not be sited on grassed areas where the vehicle has to drive across or place legs onto a grass area. Bedale Skip Hire vehicles will not place legs onto council land and footpaths other than the highway.

Bedale Skip Hire Ltd will take no responsibility for any damage to a customer’s premises or manholes if the ground or site is not suitable for a HGV or capable of carrying the weight of a HGV.

Placing skips on block paving, slabbed driveways, soft and uneven ground is NOT advisable and is done so at the risk of the customer. A written disclaimer will be required, should you (the customer) require our skips to be dropped on surfaces that are likely to become damaged.

All BSH skips are manufactured from steel components. Skip doors are often large and heavy. Caution should be taken.

Please ensure there is enough space for access purposes. A typical delivery vehicle will require a clearance of 2.9m wide. Although smaller trucks can be arranged.
