Battersea Skip Hire FAQs
How do you order a skip in Battersea?
Ordering a skip in Battersea with us is incredibly easy. Select the skip size you need and input a few details about when and where you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
What is the cost of skip hire in Battersea?
The cost of hiring a skip in Battersea will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What types of waste can I put in the skip?
This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that will result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most typical things which we find in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, sinks, as well as other household items.
However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic goods (fridge freezers, TVs and washing machines for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them must comply with a completely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Generally speaking, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when choosing a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips come in a variety of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good choice for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to take on, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, they are the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.
We can also provide 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in on the day it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that is not achievable, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and we will handle the rest.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Battersea and the rest of the UK. Every one of our partner businesses are verified and tested to make certain they match our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.
How large is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and rubble. With a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of significant amounts of waste. Primarily, these containers are used for industrial applications. However, residential customers can also use them. You should take into account the area they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light-weight waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and hardcore.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.
If I need a skip on the road in Battersea, will I need to get a permit?
In most cases, it will be possible to get your skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you will need to have consent from the local council in Battersea, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
Electrical products such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered items have to be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip ordered across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builders skip will be the biggest option that can be used for heavy materials like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.
Will you deliver skips across London?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Battersea, we also deliver to other towns and villages within London. Through a network of regional and national waste management companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Battersea, Edgware or Brent, we have got it covered.
What happens to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this provides you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Is it okay to fill the skip above the level load mark?
You should not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to transport, and you may be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be collected.
