Dorking Skip Hire FAQs
Do all skips have a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us 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 waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like furniture.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home on the day it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has total access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.
Having said that, when this is not feasible, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric products have to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic goods such as washing machines, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a business in Dorking and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that are available.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can generally hire a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up will be as convenient as possible, there is the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dorking?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.
What happens to the waste in the skip?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling station in or local to Dorking where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How much does skip hire in Dorking cost?
The cost of hiring a skip in Dorking is determined by the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What waste can I put in the skip?
You are able to put a variety of waste types into the skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are allowed as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in the skip.
There are, however, some materials that you can’t put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they may trigger.
You cannot throw out your fridge freezer, laptop or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous materials in one form or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Feel free to email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the level load line?
No, you are only allowed to pack the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving slabs and soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Dorking?
We will make sure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Do you deliver skips across Surrey?
Certainly, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Surrey, such as Dorking, Shepperton, Sunbury and Cranleigh. So no matter where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be used to discard substantial building and construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or soil.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a number of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the loft, these substantial skips will often be the most affordable choice available.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Dorking?
We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Dorking and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are verified and tested to ensure they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Dorking, you will have several options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are ideal for household tidy ups involving bulky items like furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or stone.
To get more information regarding the various sizes offered, including dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
