Crystal Palace Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Crystal Palace?

Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Crystal Palace. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip situated on the street or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Crystal Palace?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Crystal Palace and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.

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

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any items higher than the level load line. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to select the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be glad to help.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of large volumes of waste materials. Predominantly, these containers are used for business uses. Having said that, household customers can also order them. You will need to think about the space they take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light-weight materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and hardcore.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to access where you want it positioned, we will take care of it all.

When you will not be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the drive. Or you might need to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

What size skips do you offer?

We provide a full variety of skip sizes to household and industrial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags

For further information about our choice of skips, such as dimensions plus the waste materials they can be used for, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.

What can I put in my skip?

It is possible to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction wastes including bricks or top soil, the biggest size you could use is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste materials, including metal, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.

When will my skip be delivered?

If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip might be the best choice. What size is described as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for residential tasks like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Crystal Palace?

Ideally, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. If you are carrying out a household job, then your drive will be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Crystal Palace. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your skip.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not put old or unwanted electronic waste items in your skip. This can include items like computers, microwaves, washing machines, refrigerators and monitors. Electrical products can’t be discarded in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip which is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest size which you can use for hefty waste like dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Crystal Palace?

Hiring a skip in Crystal Palace with us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you require and then input a handful of details about when and where you want your skip delivered.
