Brighton Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Brighton skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. With a volume of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Brighton?

The cost of hiring a skip in Brighton depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip positioned on the highway, because you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and construction work, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size that can be used for hefty materials including garden soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Am I able to throw electronic items in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical products like old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, however it does help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given full access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.

Where does the rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Brighton where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

When you are selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop door, though these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can usually give a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, since to be on public property (like a street), you must obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

How do you hire a skip?

Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you need your skip delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your order is complete!

What types of waste can I put in a skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, it is important to make sure that the kind of waste you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you could throw in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and construction rubbish, including bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste materials.

What size skips can you deliver?

We are able to supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for more substantial tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Brighton firms which produce a large volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The normal hire term will be a fortnight from the date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book your skip, you can choose a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Brighton?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to get permission from the local authority in Brighton, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, plus you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

Will you deliver skips across East Sussex?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Brighton, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across East Sussex. Through our network of local and national waste management and recycling companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Brighton, Eastbourne or Hastings, we have got it covered.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will then have to empty any contents over the level load line. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure you select the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We will be glad to help.

Other areas covered include Eastbourne, Hastings, Newhaven, Polegate, Bexhill, Rye, Peacehaven and Wadhurst.
