Eltham Skip Hire FAQs
What kinds of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building waste including bricks or garden soil, the maximum size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when your skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given full access and that your skip will be located precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is being hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your support during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size provided by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Eltham?
We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your address to check out all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Eltham. Select the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you need your skip delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is done!
Is it possible to get a skip with a drop down door?
Using a skip which has a drop down door helps make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials such as soil and stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier too.
Most skips can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Eltham?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Eltham, type in your delivery 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 hire. If the skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
Am I allowed to throw electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic items including old televisions, cookers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly way.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial size skips used mainly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers used to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or clay.
A builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out your attic, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective option available.
Is it ok to load my skip above the level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any contents above the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or another item, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
If I require a skip on the road in Eltham, will I need to get a permit?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Will a Eltham skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of approved businesses. These can vary from small local skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.
What will happen to the waste when the skip is collected?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into various waste types, which includes wood, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do you deliver to other areas in London?
Of course, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations throughout London, including Eltham, Brent, Camberwell and Chislehurst. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What skip sizes do you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Eltham, you will have numerous sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for house tidy ups including bulky objects such as furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even bigger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for light materials, so they can not be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further details about the various capacities offered, including measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
