Below are a few of the common questions we receive relating to our skip hire services.
Blackwater Skip Hire FAQs
Which skip sizes have a drop down door?
Having a skip that has a drop down door will make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials such as garden soil or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky items like furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Blackwater, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small domestic clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are great for house clearances involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For additional information about the different sizes offered, including proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Is it okay to load up my skip above the side?
You should not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be collected.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
If you have a business in Blackwater and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted using chains.
Can you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
We provide a national skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Blackwater, Yateley, Aldershot, Lymington or another location in Hampshire, we can assist.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be used to discard substantial building and construction waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or clay.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the loft, these big skips tend to be the most cost-effective solution available.
What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste streams, such as stone, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically hire the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection time when you place your order.
Otherwise, simply let us know when you’ve finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It could take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.
Will a skip hire company from Blackwater deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Blackwater and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electrical objects can’t be thrown in the skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
What kinds of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that will result from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Among the most common items that we find in skips include soil, timber, bush cuttings, kitchen units, baths, and various other household items.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electrical goods (fridges, TVs and cookers for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them has to comply with an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being there whenever the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip will be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
What is the cost of skip hire in Blackwater?
The cost of hiring a skip in Blackwater depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have your skip positioned on the highway, because you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Blackwater?
In most cases, it is possible to have a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you must get approval from your local council in Blackwater, 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 charge a fee for the permit, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will usually give a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (like a highway), you must get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
What size is the mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household tasks like small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Blackwater?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (such as the road). Then, pick the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Blackwater on the day you have selected.
