Chelsea Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Chelsea and the rest of the UK. All of our partner companies are verified and evaluated to ensure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Chelsea?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can typically give a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (such as a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that could 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 anticipate it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods like cookers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How do you order a skip in Chelsea?
Hiring a skip in Chelsea through us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you want and then input a few details about when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will have to empty any rubbish over the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal obligation to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.
What kinds of rubbish can you get rid of in a skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about our service. The main thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that could result from garden projects, building work and home clearances.
Some of the most frequent things that we see in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, cabinets, toilets, and various household objects.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electrical products (tumble dryers, monitors and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must abide by an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
Can you deliver skips across London?
We offer a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Chelsea, Bexley, Beckenham, Forest Hill or any other location in London, we are able to assist.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip is going to be delivered, but it does help. Being in when the skip is being delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be located precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be available during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, including wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you have a business in Chelsea and wish to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the label suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Chelsea?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Chelsea, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the skip sizes we provide in your location and how much each size will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.
What size is a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are great for an array of domestic and industrial tasks. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Chelsea firms with a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I get a skip which has a drop down door?
Generally, most skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily useful when choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
If I require a skip on a road in Chelsea, will I need to get a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do 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 can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
