Below are some of the frequently asked questions we have received with regards to our skip hire service.
Beaconsfield Skip Hire FAQs
How long can I hire the skip for?
The standard hire time frame is 14 days from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order your skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Beaconsfield?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items like tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
Will a skip hire company from Beaconsfield deliver my skip?

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Beaconsfield?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Beaconsfield, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we offer in your area and how much each option will cost you to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to dispose of significant volumes of waste materials. Mostly, these skips are used for business purposes. Having said that, household clients may also hire them. You will need to think about the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be used for lightweight waste such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Am I allowed to put all types of waste in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of waste you intend to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and demolition waste, like timber, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical goods, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from your general waste.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are great for numerous types of residential and commercial projects. They are the biggest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, rubble and gravel.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We provide a full range of skip capacities to domestic and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I fill the skip above level load mark?
No. You can only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste materials up above this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to remove the extra waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
How do I hire a skip online?
We have designed our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to enter your address to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to supply in Beaconsfield. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and give us the details of when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to verify the order once your order is done!
Will my skip have a drop down door?
The majority of containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, like pieces of furniture.
Do you deliver to other areas in Buckinghamshire?
Sure, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skip sizes to locations across Buckinghamshire, including Beaconsfield, Chesham, Bourne End and Marlow. So wherever you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste streams, including timber, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (such as a road), you must obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
