Below are a few of the typical questions we have received relating to our skip hire services.
East Molesey Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered objects such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects should be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The standard hire time frame will be a fortnight from the date of delivery. However, when you order the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will pick it up at the earliest opportunity.
We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case at busy periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
What skip sizes can you deliver?
We are able to supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A popular choice for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For East Molesey firms which have a significant quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do you order a skip?
We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your address to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in East Molesey. Pick the best size to meet your needs and enter the details of where and when you would like the skip to be delivered.

What happens to the waste?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a number of waste streams, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in East Molesey?
Ideally, you should have the skip left on a hard surface. If you are doing a household project, then the driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge as well as other public property in East Molesey. If this is needed, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You must only load your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you could be told to take off the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the best solution. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential tasks like small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, if you can’t be available at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Can I get a skip that has a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door can make filling waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and construction work, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest option which you can use for hefty materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What types of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. What is important to remember is that you may load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that may come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most frequent items that we collect in our skips include dirt, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, as well as other household products.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electrical objects (fridge freezers, TVs and computers for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them must abide by an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.
How much does skip hire in East Molesey cost?
This will depend on the size you will need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in industrial settings.

Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for industrial uses. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. You will need to look at the area they take up, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
Do you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to locations across Surrey, including East Molesey, Ashford, Staines-upon-Thames and Cranleigh. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
