Bexleyheath Skip Hire FAQs
What is the process of ordering a skip in Bexleyheath?
Hiring a skip in Bexleyheath with us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you require and then enter a few details about where and when you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Can I have a skip which has a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as dirt and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items like cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Our company offers a complete selection of skip capacities to residential and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the various sized skips you can choose from, with a rough guide to the amount of waste each skip 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

How much does skip hire in Bexleyheath cost?
Our aim is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Bexleyheath. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are great for a wide variety of residential and business jobs. These are the largest skips which can be used for weighty builders waste including dirt, stone and gravel.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial scale skips used primarily in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Bexleyheath?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will usually provide a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (such as a road), you will need to gain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.
What can I put in the skip?
You may use a skip to dispose of many different waste types. We are used to picking up and processing lots of items generated from construction jobs, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include things like:
- Home furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste types are allowed, therefore whether you would like to discard furniture, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and things you throw in your skip can vary depending on the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like discard soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size container you would be able to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Are there items that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some materials that you will not be permitted to throw out in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products include hazardous materials that may cause damage to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be disposed of separately within UK laws.
Some of the products which are restricted include:
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is collected?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Bexleyheath where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t have to be home when the skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being in when the skip arrives means you can ensure the lorry is given complete access and that your skip is dropped precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Bexleyheath?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a domestic task, then the drive will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the road or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you will have to have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or other public property in Bexleyheath. If this is required, we will request the license to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.
Am I allowed to load my skip above the level load mark?
It is essential to not overfill the skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to transport. Which means that when you overload your skip, you might be required to remove the excess rubbish. No matter how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore not allowed.
