Bromley Skip Hire FAQs

How can I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or council property (like the street). Then, choose the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Bromley on the day you have selected.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

If I need a skip on the road in Bromley, will I need to get a permit?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip is on private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We are able to offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Bromley businesses which produce a significant amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electronic objects like televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical objects have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Bromley. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to guarantee they meet the high standards we require in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer 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, as to be on public property (for example a road), you will have to 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 a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into several different waste streams, such as stone, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can generally hire a skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.

Otherwise, simply let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.

It may take a little longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which can be used for heavy waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Is it okay to fill up the skip higher than the top?

It is vital not to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overload the skip, you might be required to remove the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce significant quantities of waste.

How much will skip hire in Bromley cost?

This depends upon the size you want and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What kinds of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?

It is possible to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a household clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also go in your skip.

However, there are some things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential environment or health risk they may trigger.

You can not throw out your fridge freezer, computer monitor or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things include hazardous components in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal waste.

Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this waste. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you having to make several trips to the local recycling centre.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we will take care of it all.

If you are not likely to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when you book your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your property. Alternatively, you might want to ensure that the skip does not hinder use of your garage.
