Banstead Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The term comes from the fact that these are the most popular sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are ideal for an array of residential and business tasks. These are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.
How do I order a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Banstead through us is very easy. Choose the skip size you require and then enter a couple of details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We are able to supply a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Banstead businesses with a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I able to throw all kinds of rubbish in a skip?
You are allowed to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on which size you have hired, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building wastes including stone or top soil, the largest size you could use is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Banstead?
This will depend on the size you want and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Banstead?
We can usually deliver skips to Banstead the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform gives you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you want your skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Banstead?
As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use an extensive network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This can include such things as printers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of large amounts of waste materials. Primarily, these skips are hired for business applications. Having said that, household clients may also use them. You will need to take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of dirt and concrete.
Do you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
In addition to delivering our range of skips to Banstead, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Surrey. With the help of our network of regional and national skip businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Banstead, Haslemere or Cranleigh, we have got it covered.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Is it okay to load up my skip higher than the top?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out 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 safety condition, as moving an overloaded container is dangerous, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this problem, please be sure to order a size suitable for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have further rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it positioned, we will take care of it all.
If you are not going to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular side of your driveway. Or you might want to make sure the skip does not block access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will make sure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Will my skip have a drop door?
The vast majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like household furniture.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Banstead?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private property, it will save you some money.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Generally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
