Below are some of the frequently asked questions we receive relating to our skip hire services.

Chorleywood Skip Hire FAQs

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

It is vital never to overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load mark 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 your skip, you may be asked to take away the surplus waste. However safe you think the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

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

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you need the skip to be located on land outside of your business or house, you will have to get authorisation from the local authority in Chorleywood, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to two working days.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Chorleywood?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Am I able to put electronic products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric items including cookers, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the popular skip that is hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label originates from.

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

Will you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?

We offer a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Chorleywood, Buntingford, Waltham Cross, Hitchin or any other area in Hertfordshire, we are able to help.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small domestic projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 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 fantastic choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as soil and stone. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Chorleywood?

This is determined by the skip size you want and if you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced choice.

What happens to the waste in my skip?

Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Chorleywood where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip available from skip firms and is great for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The normal hire time frame will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can provide a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We can normally be out to get your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to understand that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Chorleywood?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What types of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

This is one of the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to consider is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that may come from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.

Among the most frequent items that we pick up in our skips include garden soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cabinets, toilets, and various household products.

There are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electrical products (refrigerators, TVs or cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

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

No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can access where you need it positioned, we will take care of everything.

In the event you will not be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be located on a particular area of your property. Or you might need to ensure the skip doesn’t obstruct use of your garage.

Whatever the case might be, simply let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a company in Chorleywood and want to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip might be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.

As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
