Emsworth Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Emsworth?

The price of getting a skip in Emsworth depends on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you need to have a skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Can I get a skip which has a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop door helps make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like soil and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are primarily for business use but can be used by domestic clients too. Having said that, you should have lots of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roro containers should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and rubble.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY jobs and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.

They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.

Do you deliver skips across Hampshire?

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to dispose of substantial construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.

A builders skip is ideal for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your garden shed, these large skips are usually the most affordable solution available.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old TVs, fridge freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Emsworth?

As we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.

What can I put in my skip?

Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of waste materials you wish to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you are able to throw in your skip include home items like furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to discard building and demolition waste, like old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Emsworth?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can result in a charge for a wasted journey.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

Our standard hire period will be two weeks from your delivery date. However, when you book the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is full sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as quickly as possible.

We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your address to look at all the different skips we can deliver to Emsworth. Select which size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on your own property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Where does the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into several different waste types, which includes timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

You should not load the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you can be asked to remove any excess waste before it can be collected.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at home when your skip is delivered, however it can help. Being there whenever the skip is being delivered means you can ensure the driver is given complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, if you can’t be available during delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.

If I require a skip on the road in Emsworth, will I need a permit?

This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save some pounds.

Other areas covered include Alton, Romsey, Tadley, Portsmouth, Bishop’s Waltham, Horndean, Fareham and Whitchurch.
