Aldershot Skip Hire FAQs
How long will it take to get a skip in Aldershot?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we can even provide a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the order process.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these skips are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, household customers may also order them. You should look at the space they take up, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for lightweight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and concrete.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Aldershot?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be around for delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
Will you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas throughout Hampshire, such as Aldershot, Whitchurch, Fleet and Romsey. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Aldershot, you have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most frequent sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or stone.
For more details about the different sizes offered, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, paper, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic products such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical objects should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What size skips will have a drop down door?
For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop down door, however these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for construction work. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to dispose of large quantities of building and demolition materials, including garden soil, rubble and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for many other household and business waste disposal tasks.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Aldershot?
The cost of getting a skip in Aldershot is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally have your skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may give a preferred collection day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished, and we will organise the collection. In most cases, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy times.
What size is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, the mini skip may be the best solution. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for household work including small DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
How do you order a skip in Aldershot?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to see all the different skips we are able to deliver to Aldershot.

As soon as your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?
It is vital never to overfill your skip. You can not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to remove the excess rubbish. However secure you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is not allowed.
Am I able to put all kinds of waste in my skip?
You can put a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include wood, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted as well. Units from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip a result of the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.
You are unable to get rid of your freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this material. Please email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Aldershot?
Usually, it is possible to get your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you will need to get approval from your local authority in Aldershot, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
