Please ensure there is enough room for your skip to be placed. Our vehicles will also need room in order to place your skip where you need it.
Obstructions such as parked cars often cause delays, so you'll need to ensure that the way is clear before delivery and collection of your skip.
Smaller skips can be loaded by hand by using a shovel for loose material such as soil or by bagging all the material beforehand. Always wear protective clothing such as gloves when handling sharp materials such as glass, metal and laminates.
It is possible to use scaffold planks to form a ramp to the skip but please be aware of the dangers of slipping and falling off!
Larger skips may need to be loaded using a mechanical loader or grab machine. Ro-ro skips can be loaded by hand using a metal staircase.
Please do not overload the skip. Overloading can mean that we cannot collect it.
Swindon Skips cannot be held responsible for any personal injury or damage whilst using our skips.
We can take plasterboard but you must put it into separate bags to the rest of the material in the skip.
We cannot take asbestos. This will need to be removed by a specialist asbestos removal service.
Items such as fridges, freezers, computer & TV screens, anything containing a hazardous material, chemical or gas, paint & felt roofing may incur additional disposal charges. Please contact us if you have any concerns about any of the materials intended to be removed before you put them in the skip.
Please let us know the skip types and quantities you require
