Basildon Skip Hire FAQs

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is used across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for hefty materials such as soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

Do all skips have a drop door?

The majority of containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal job to deal with, a builder’s skip may be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, they are the most frequent sizes used by builders for construction waste, like clay and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Where does the rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip in Basildon through us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you will need and enter a few details about where and when you need your skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Basildon?

In most cases, it will be possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to get this done, you have got to have consent from your local council in Basildon, which is called a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?

You can fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip would depend on which size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction waste such as rubble or dirt, the biggest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electronic items such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods should be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.

Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we can manage it all.

In the event you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be positioned on a particular area of your driveway. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.

Will a Basildon skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of verified businesses. These vary from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial scale skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that produce significant amounts of waste materials.

Do you deliver skips across Essex?

Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas across Essex, including Basildon, Loughton, Burnham-on-Crouch and Chelmsford. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Is it ok to load the skip above the level load line?

It is important to never overload the skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it becomes very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. However secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is not allowed.

What size is the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

How long will it take to get a skip in Basildon?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (like a highway), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Basildon?

The price of hiring a skip in Basildon will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you want to have your skip positioned on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Other areas covered include Loughton, Burnham-on-Crouch, Chelmsford, South Woodham Ferrers, Colchester, Frinton-on-Sea, Halstead and Rayleigh.
