Fareham Skip Hire FAQs
How do I order a skip in Fareham?
Hiring a skip in Fareham with us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you will need and enter a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given full access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange things from there.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The regular hire time frame will be a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed as soon as possible.
We can normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What types of rubbish can I throw in a skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that will come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most typical things which we find in our skips include dirt, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen units, toilets, and various household objects.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This includes any electronic items (dishwashers, TVs or computers for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them must abide by an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical goods including washing machines, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Fareham. We employ a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully vetted to ensure they fulfill the high expectations we require regarding customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and industrial customers across Hampshire and anywhere else in the UK.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Fareham?
Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Fareham. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the highway or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.
Is it ok to stack up waste in my skip?
You must not fill up a skip past the level load line. If you load it over the tip of this mark, it means that the skip is not secure to move, and you might be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
If I need a skip on the road in Fareham, will I need to get a permit?
If possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. If you are doing a household job, then your drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or other public property in Fareham. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
How big is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are perfect for numerous types of residential and business jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste like dirt, rubble and bricks.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip delivered by skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely 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 labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
How long does it take to get a skip in Fareham?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will usually provide a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (like a highway), you will need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of numerous factors that could impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, including soil, plastics, rubble and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These bins are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by household customers as well. However, you will want a good amount of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Will my skip have a drop door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door will make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste such as soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading big bulky items like furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Fareham, you will have several sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups involving large objects such as furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for those with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For additional details about the various capacities offered, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
