Dartford Skip Hire FAQs
How do you hire a skip in Dartford?
We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to check out all the different skip sizes we can deliver in Dartford. Select the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to verify the transaction once your booking is done!
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, including metal, plastics, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
What things can I put in my skip?
This is one of the most common 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 lots of kinds of waste that may result from garden projects, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most frequent items that we see in skips include soil, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen units, baths, as well as other household objects.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This can include any electronic objects (tumble dryers, monitors and laptops for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.
Can I have a skip which has a drop door?
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip which is hired across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest option that can be used for heavy waste matter such as soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that produce large volumes of waste.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can usually deliver skips to Dartford the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform will provide you with a range of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electronic goods like cookers, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
What sizes do skips come in?
This site offers a complete range of skip sizes to domestic and industrial customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sizes offered, with a rough guide to the amount of waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for household tasks like small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can normally hire a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Alternatively, simply tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a little bit longer to collect your skip during busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Dartford?
Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Dartford. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip placed on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Dartford?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Dartford and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Can you deliver skips across Kent?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Dartford, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Kent. By utilising a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Dartford, Dover or West Malling, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any items over the level load line. This also means that you cannot use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal duty to ensure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure you hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We would be happy to help.
