Ashford Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to load the skip higher than the level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you may have to remove any contents over the level load mark. This also means that you can not use sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you hire the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Ashford?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for the wasted journey.
What is the cost of skip hire in Ashford?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Ashford. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip situated on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.
What skip sizes have got a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste like garden soil and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up big bulky items such as pieces of furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
How do you hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Then, choose the date you want your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Ashford on the date you have chosen.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to dispose of substantial building and construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or clay.
A builders skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the garage, these large skips tend to be the most affordable option available.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver the skip. As long as we are able to access the place you need it positioned, we can manage everything.
In case you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular side of your driveway. Alternatively, you may want to ensure the skip does not hinder use of your garage.
Whatever the case might be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will make sure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste products in your skip. This can include things like computers, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and televisions. Electrical objects can’t be thrown in your skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
Can you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
In addition to delivering skips to Ashford, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Surrey. By utilising a network of local and national waste management businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Ashford, Godalming or Ewell, we have got it covered.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Ashford where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you have a business in Ashford and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a great option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the name indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.
What types of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes including stone or dirt, the biggest size you can get is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
If I would like a skip on a road in Ashford, will I need to get a permit?
Generally, it will be possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you will need to get approval from your local authority in Ashford, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.
Will a Ashford skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Ashford and the rest of the UK. All of our partner firms are verified and tested to make certain they meet our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Our standard hire time frame is 2 weeks from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is full earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
