Berkhamsted Skip Hire FAQs
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered products like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we can even offer a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Berkhamsted, you will have several sizes to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups including large objects such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the different sizes available, including proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
How do you hire a skip in Berkhamsted?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your delivery postcode to see all the different skips we are able to deliver to Berkhamsted. Choose which size you would like to order, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on private property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that will give you sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be there when it is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
Can you deliver skips across Hertfordshire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to residential and industrial customers across Hertfordshire and anywhere else in the UK.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Will a skip hire company from Berkhamsted deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Is it okay to fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to remove the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
What skip sizes have a door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials such as dirt or concrete, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
What kinds of waste can I throw in a skip?
You are able to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, rubble, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or dirt, the largest size you would be able to get is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial size skips used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that generate large volumes of waste materials.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is collected?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Berkhamsted where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Berkhamsted?
The price of hiring a skip in Berkhamsted depends on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest option which can be used for hefty waste materials including garden soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.
If I require a skip on a road in Berkhamsted, will I need to get a permit?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you need to receive authorisation from the local authority in Berkhamsted, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.
