We are able to provide skips in Epsom as well as the nearby areas. If you are hiring a skip positioned on your private property (for example a driveway), we can in most cases organise delivery within 24 hours.

Epsom Skip Hire FAQs
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed when going through the online order process.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that is used to get rid of large volumes of rubbish. These skips are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers as well. However, you need a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.
How do you order a skip in Epsom?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). Then, choose the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Epsom on the day you have chosen.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
If I require a skip on the road in Epsom, will I need a permit?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a drive or inside your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the level load mark?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to move, and you will then have to empty any materials higher than the level load mark. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure that you order the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in contact if you’re not sure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anybody delivers something to your house. You can then ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Will a Epsom skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Epsom and the rest of the country. All of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this gives you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
How much will skip hire in Epsom cost?
The price of getting a skip in Epsom is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electrical items such as old TVs, freezers, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Can I put all types of waste in my skip?
It is possible to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip depends on which size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste including stone or garden soil, the largest size you could use is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is good for small domestic projects.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title suggests, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, like soil and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
What skip sizes have got a door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop-down door, however these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the popular skip hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is great for most building and demolition work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest option that you can use for hefty waste matter such as dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
What happens to the waste?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a variety of waste types, including stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
