Ealing Skip Hire FAQs

What is the size of a builders skip?

The phrase builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are fantastic for a wide variety of domestic and business projects. They are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and concrete.

Can you deliver skips across London?

Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to residential and industrial customers throughout London and anywhere else in the UK.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Electrical items like tv sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic objects must be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

What types of rubbish can I dispose of in a skip?

Before ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the type of rubbish you intend to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you may discard in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, including wood, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of prohibited items include electrical products, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

How much will skip hire in Ealing cost?

This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load mark?

It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being told to remove excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded bin will be unsafe, as objects could drop and result in personal injury or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please be sure to hire a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some further rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip companies and is designed for small DIY tasks, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial scale skips that are used primarily in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for organisations that produce large amounts of waste materials.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a variety of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection day at the time you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have loaded the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over busy periods.

Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial when hiring a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Ealing?

Since we provide a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.

How do I order a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Ealing through us is incredibly simple. Pick the skip size you will need and input a few details about when and where you want your skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered.

What happens to the rubbish?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into various waste materials, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

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

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you need to secure permission from your local council in Ealing, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can often take up to two working days.

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

No, you don’t need to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you need it delivered, we are able to take care of it all.

If you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when placing your order. For example, you may want the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t hinder use of your garage.

No matter what the case may be, simply let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure the directions are passed to the delivery driver.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will normally offer a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (like a street), you must obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

Other areas covered include Battersea, Fulham, Hackney, Eltham, Chiswick, Hammersmith, Hampton and Buckhurst Hill.
