Eastleigh Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items including old TVs, cookers, laptops and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to dispose of heavy building and construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or dirt.
A builders skip is great for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out your loft, these big skips tend to be the most affordable solution available.
Will you deliver skips across Hampshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Eastleigh, New Alresford, Fordingbridge, Horndean or another location in Hampshire, we can help.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Eastleigh?
As we offer a nationwide skip service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
How long does it take to get a skip in Eastleigh?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Generally, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly useful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini and midi skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How can I hire a skip online?
Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter in your postcode to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Eastleigh. Select which size you would like to order, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on your own property. Type in your information and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into numerous waste streams, such as metal, plastics, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Am I able to put all sorts of waste in a skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include timber, ceramic tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be thrown in a skip.
There are, however, a few things that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they can cause.
You can not get rid of your fridge freezer, printer or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange a separate collection for this material. Feel free to get in touch for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How much does skip hire in Eastleigh cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Eastleigh, insert your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we offer in your location and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Is it okay to load up the skip above the side?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to remove the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Eastleigh?
In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to secure permission from the local authority in Eastleigh, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t have to hurry through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to the place you need it located, we are able to take care of everything.
In the event you will not be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For instance, you might prefer the skip to be dropped at a particular part of the driveway. Or you may need to ensure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, domestic clients can also use them. You have to take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for light-weight materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and hardcore.
What size skips can you supply?
Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential tasks.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a fantastic choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, including clay and hardcore. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We also offer 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
