Below are some of the frequently asked questions we have received relating to our skip hire services.
Carshalton Skip Hire FAQs
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste like garden soil or hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky items like household furniture easier as well.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Carshalton?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit if 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, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What waste materials can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are allowed as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in a skip.
There are, however, things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they can trigger.
You can’t throw in your fridge freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Please email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How do I order a skip in Carshalton?
Ordering a skip in Carshalton through us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you need your skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The standard hire period will be 2 weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is best for you. Of course, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.
We will normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Carshalton?
As we offer a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified companies. These vary from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
How much will skip hire in Carshalton cost?
Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Carshalton. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip positioned on the highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will have to remove any contents above the level load line. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to choose the correct size of skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We will be glad to help.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be available when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How long does it take to get a skip in Carshalton?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What happens to the waste?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most commonly hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently used for building and demolition work. There are typically two sizes that can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that can be used to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition waste, such as garden soil, rubble and rock.
Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic products including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products should be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
Do you deliver skips across London?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Carshalton, Brixton, Chingford, London or any other location in London, we are able to assist.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, often known as a RORO, is a substantial skip used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by domestic clients as well. Having said that, you need a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Carshalton, you have several sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are suitable for house clearances including bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
