Caterham Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you do not have to stress. Simply let us know when you are making your order, and then we will handle the rest.

Who will deliver my skip?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of approved businesses. These can range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the frequent skip which is ordered across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction work, which is where the label comes from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the largest option which can be used for heavy waste materials like soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Is it okay to load the skip above the level load mark?

It is very important to not overload a skip, as you risk being required to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container is hazardous, as objects could drop and lead to injury or damage to others.

To prevent this situation, please be sure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?

When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into a variety of waste streams, such as stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Do you deliver skips across Surrey?

In addition to delivering skips to Caterham, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Surrey. Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Caterham, Redhill or Warlingham, we have got you covered.

Can I throw electrical items in the skip?

I’m afraid not, since electronic products like old TVs, cookers, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of 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 secure and environmentally friendly fashion.

Do all skips have a drop door?

When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, although they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on 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 ensure a skip with a drop door is delivered.

Am I able to put all types of waste in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that will result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most common items that we pick up in skips include garden soil, timber, hedge trimmings, cabinets, bathroom suites, and other household products.

There are also some things that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic objects (fridge freezers, televisions or laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them needs to adhere to a completely different procedure to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for businesses that produce large amounts of waste materials.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a highway), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.

How much does skip hire in Caterham cost?

Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Caterham. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip located on the street or other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.

What size is the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for residential tasks such as small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

If I would like a skip on the road in Caterham, will I need to get a permit?

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

If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private land, it will save you some money.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually keep a skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will arrange your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy periods.

What skip sizes do you supply?

Skips are offered in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is good for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great option for loft clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these represent the most popular sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
