Abingdon-on-Thames Skip Hire FAQs
Will my skip have a drop door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is great for getting rid of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, however these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can typically hire your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.
It might take a little while longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed when going through the online order process.
Will a Abingdon-on-Thames skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our clients in Abingdon-on-Thames and the rest of the UK. Our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important to not overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off excessive waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as rubbish could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please ensure you hire a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container that can be used to transport huge quantities of waste. Predominantly, these containers are used for business uses. However, domestic clients can also order them. It is essential to look at the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for lightweight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.
How do you hire a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Abingdon-on-Thames through us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you need the skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered.
Can you deliver to other areas in Oxfordshire?
Yes. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can deliver skips to both household and commercial customers throughout Oxfordshire and anywhere else within the UK.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is hired throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste materials such as soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
You can throw a wide array of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Dated units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are a few things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risk they could cause.
You can’t throw in your freezer, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to email for further details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Am I able to put electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic items such as old televisions, fridges, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.
If I need a skip on a road in Abingdon-on-Thames, will I need to get a permit?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be separated by machinery and also by hand into various waste streams, including metal, plastics, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Abingdon-on-Thames, you will have multiple sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them suitable for house clearances including bulky items like household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.
For additional information regarding the various sizes available, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
How much will skip hire in Abingdon-on-Thames cost?
This depends upon the skip size you will need and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.
Having said that, if this isn’t possible, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.
