Crowthorne Skip Hire FAQs
How quick can you deliver a skip to Crowthorne?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted journey.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when the skip is delivered, but it can help. Being there whenever the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip can be located exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric products such as cookers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases have your skip for up to 14 days from your delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen collection day when you place your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy times.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies will offer a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for 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.
If I need a skip on the road in Crowthorne, will I need to have a permit?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to secure permission from your local council in Crowthorne, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.
Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you will then be asked to empty any items higher than the level load line. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or any other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to choose the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We will be glad to help.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into a number of waste streams, such as timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Crowthorne, you have numerous options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups involving large objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For additional details about the different capacities offered, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial commercial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that produce large volumes of waste materials.
What sort of waste can I throw in a skip?
You can load your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, rubble, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on the size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste like concrete or dirt, the largest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Which skip sizes can have a door?
Nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with heavy materials, like soil and concrete, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as furniture.
Will a Crowthorne skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These can include small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental expectations.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to dispose of weighty building materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or garden soil.
The builder’s skip is great for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the shed, these large skips will often be the most cost-effective choice available.
Will you deliver to other areas in Berkshire?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can offer skips to household and commercial customers throughout Berkshire and elsewhere within the UK.
