Esher Skip Hire FAQs
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest containers that can be hired to dispose of substantial building and demolition materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or clay.
The builders skip is great for a number of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the attic, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective solution available.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Esher, you will have various options to choose from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also means they are perfect for household clear ups including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light waste, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further information about the various capacities available, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips that are used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that produce large volumes of waste materials.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you need it positioned, we can take care of everything.
In the event you are not going to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For instance, you may want the skip to be located on a particular area of the property. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t hinder access to your garage.
Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.
When will my skip be delivered?
We can normally deliver skips to Esher the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system provides you with a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need a skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
Can you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
Of course, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas throughout Surrey, such as Esher, Horley, Ewell and Warlingham. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
The majority of containers can be provided with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
Will a Esher skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Esher and the rest of the country. Each of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Esher?
Normally, it is possible to have your skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you need to get approval from the local council in Esher, which is known as a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and old toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make several trips to the local recycling centre.
How much does skip hire in Esher cost?
This depends on the skip size you want and whether you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Then, select the day you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Esher on the day you have selected.
Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important not to overload a skip, as you risk being told to take off excess waste before it can be picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as materials could fall and result in personal injury or damage to others.
To avoid this situation, please be sure to order a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have further waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of waste in a skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish which can result from garden projects, construction work and household clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we pick up in skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various household objects.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electronic items (fridges and freezers, TVs and printers for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Our regular hire time frame is 14 days from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you book the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling station, where it will be processed and sorted.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
The contents of the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, such as metal, paper, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
No, you cannot dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This can include such things as computers, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. Electric products can’t be discarded in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
