Catford Skip Hire FAQs

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be located exactly where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if that is not feasible, you do not need to stress. Just tell us when placing your booking, and then we will take care of the rest.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a selection of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

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

Guide to skip sizes

How can I hire a skip?

Ordering a skip in Catford through us is very simple. Pick the skip size you want and then enter a couple of details about when and where you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered to you.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than the level load line?

Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up over this line would make it dangerous to move, and you might be told to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

Will you deliver to other areas in London?

Along with delivering skips to Catford, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across London. With the help of a network of local and national skip companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Catford, Brent or Haringey, we have got you covered.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Catford?

Normally, it will be possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to do this, you must have approval from the local authority in Catford, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

What will happen to my waste when the skip is picked up?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, including soil, paper, concrete and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.

Will a skip hire company from Catford deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

Am I able to get a skip with a drop down door?

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

Getting a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a big builder’s skip, as it lets you 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.

Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, because electrical products such as old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the common skip that is used across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the biggest size that can be used for heavy waste matter like dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Catford?

This depends on the skip size you require and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What waste can I put in a skip?

You are allowed to throw a variety of rubbish into the skip. This includes timber, ceramic tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted too. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in a skip.

There are, however, things that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risk they might cause.

You can not throw in your fridge freezer, printer or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from normal waste.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Feel free to email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by domestic clients too. Having said that, you need a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro containers should only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact size offered by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Catford?

We can typically deliver skips to Catford the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system gives you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip delivered ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Our standard hire term is 14 days from your delivery date. However, at the time you order the skip, you can provide a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full earlier than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.

We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to remember that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste recycling facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

Other areas covered include Brent, Haringey, Camden, Coulsdon, Brentford, Chelsea, Greenford and Hampstead.
