Budget Skips

Getting ready for your skip

Preparing yourself before hiring a skip will not only give you peace of mind, it will also protect you from any additional or unexpected charges.

Here at Budget Waste Management we offer a simple and stress-free process to enable you to order the correct skip, however there are a few things you will need to consider before placing your order. Before completing your skip order, please take some time to consider the below points.

Why choose Budget Waste Management?

  • Hassle free skip hire
  • Fast and reliable delivery
  • Friendly and helpful customer service

Please see below our helpful step-by-step guide to help you decide the best skip for all of your needs.

Vehicle Sizes

We have a range of vehicles to offer, so dependent on the size of skip ordered and the waste being disposed of will determine what type of lorry we use to deliver your skip. If the roads surrounding your area are notably difficult, please check with one of our knowledgeable team members which type of vehicle will be coming to you.

Whether your property is within a cul-de-sac or with a no through road, it is something you will need to keep in mind when ordering a skip. Our vehicles require enough room to get in and out of your road safely. If space is limited in the road our drivers will need to know to avoid any damage or disruption that may be caused.

Skip Lorry

For our skip lorries to be able to deliver your skip, we require a minimum of 9 feet in width. This enables a safe and hassle-free delivery. If you are unsure, please call a member of our helpful team.

Roll On/Off Lorry

As our roll on/roll off containers are delivered on an 8-wheeler lorry, we require a space of 50 feet to the rear of the vehicle for us to safely drop them.


Having full access is essential to ensure a successful and stress-free skip delivery, however, there are a few factors which need to be considered to ensure this happens.

Factors include:
  • Type of road
  • Parked cars
  • Gates
  • Height restriction bridges/bars

Whilst most roads within our service area are completely suitable for our vehicles, it is important to consider the width of the road and how busy it may get.

Parked cars can disrupt a skip delivery whether they are on one side of the road or both as they can make access more difficult. Keeping the road clear of cars nearby during the time of delivery and collection is essential for skips being dropped onto the highways. Driveways will also need to be clear of any vehicles to prevent them being blocked in by a skip.


Due to the increased height and width of our vehicles, there are a lot more hazards out on the roads. In comparison to everyday traffic, we must take special consideration when delivering and collecting skips.

Phone wires: For our vehicles, overhead cables are an extremely dangerous hazard. In most cases, these cables are out of the way, however it would be worth checking this ahead of booking a skip delivery.

Trees: Trees may not seem like an issue, however, whether on your property or not they are sometimes likely to block access for our vehicles. It is important to be aware of any overhanging trees before a lorry arrives.

Shared Driveways

Many driveways these days are classed as shared driveways. This means that two houses next door to each other share one driveway. It would be a good idea to speak to your neighbour about your intentions of having a skip delivered even if there is plenty of space on your side of the driveway.

Taking care of your driveway

To avoid any unnecessary damage to your driveway, let us know anything you would like our drivers to look out for. From manhole covers to garden walls, any extra points you can think of, please make a member of staff aware to help avoid any damage.

Skip being placed onto a Highway

If a skip is being dropped onto the public highway, an environmental permit will need to be applied for from your local council. Here at Budget Waste Management we do that for you. The alternative option to a permit is to have a Load and Go Service.

Please speak to a member of our Team for more information on Permits and our Load and Load Service.
