Farnham Skip Hire FAQs
Do you use local skip hire companies in Farnham?
As we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental principles.
What will happen to the waste?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Farnham?
Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Farnham. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.
Will you deliver skips across Surrey?
Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to provide skips to residential and commercial customers throughout Surrey and anywhere else in the UK.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Primarily, these type of containers are used for business purposes. Having said that, residential clients can also order them. It is very important look at the area they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be utilised for light waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and rubble.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the level load line?
No. You can only pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up above this line will make it dangerous to transport, and you might be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Generally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop door can make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like garden soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, but this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
If I need a skip on the road in Farnham, will I need to have a permit?
In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to secure authorisation from your local council in Farnham, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the license, and you should know before placing your order that obtaining the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for a wasted journey.
Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?
It is always best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be located just where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers that can be used to get rid of weighty construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builders skip is great for a variety of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the loft space, these substantial skips tend to be the most affordable solution available.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a total capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Farnham?
Hiring a skip in Farnham with us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you require and then input a couple of details about when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered to you.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste products in your skip. This includes items like computers, cookers, washing machines, fridges and televisions. Electrical products can’t be discarded in the skip since they can have dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
We are able to offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip excellent for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Farnham companies which have a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Can I throw all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish that may come from garden work, construction work and property clearances.
Among the most frequent items that we collect in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, cabinets, sinks, and various household items.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electronic goods (fridges, monitors or laptops for example), old tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must follow a completely different process to make sure they do not result in harm to the environment.
