Chigwell Skip Hire FAQs

Can you deliver to other areas in Essex?

In addition to delivering skips to Chigwell, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Essex. By utilising a network of local and national skip businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Chigwell, Basildon or Great Dunmow, we have got you covered.

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

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large skip that is used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are mainly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients also. However, you should have lots of space as these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.

Will a Chigwell skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental standards.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?

It is possible to load your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in your skip depends on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy construction waste such as concrete or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

How much does skip hire in Chigwell cost?

Our aim is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Chigwell. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip located on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

Is it ok to fill the skip above the top?

It is important never to overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overload the skip, you may be required to take off the surplus waste. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is prohibited.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also include a drop down door, although these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.

Where will the rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Chigwell where we sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when your skip is being delivered, but it does help. Being in when your skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the delivery driver is given complete access and that your skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, when you can’t be around during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.

Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately not, because electrical items like old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.

How do I order a skip in Chigwell?

Ordering a skip in Chigwell with us is very easy. Pick the skip size you need and then enter a handful of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and 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.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Chigwell?

In most cases, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to do this, you will need to have approval from the local authority in Chigwell, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a fee for the wasted trip.

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Chigwell, you will have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next size available 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, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are well suited for house tidy ups including bulky objects like furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.

To get more information regarding the various skip sizes available, including measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, if you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most popular sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are suitable for a multitude of residential and business tasks. They are the largest sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and concrete.

Other areas covered include Basildon, Great Dunmow, Harlow, Thaxted, Grays, Epping, Corringham and Saffron Walden.
