Fleet Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip which is ordered across the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building jobs, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for hefty materials such as dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have finished your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
Skips are available in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is good for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to take on, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Am I able to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods including cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Fleet?
The cost of getting a skip in Fleet is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What sort of waste am I able to get rid of in a skip?
Before you hire a skip, you must ensure that the sort of rubbish you need to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials must be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include household goods like pieces of furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use your skip to throw out building and demolition waste, including old bricks, dirt, stone, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical goods, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore have to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Fleet?
In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you must receive authorisation from the local council in Fleet, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the different waste streams, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped just where you need it.
The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These skips are predominantly for commercial use but can be used by household clients too. However, you should have a good amount of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, RORO skips can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
Can I get a skip which has a drop door?
Typically, almost all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How large is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the best option. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, depending on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The price depends on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential work such as small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Fleet?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for the wasted journey.
Can you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas throughout Hampshire, such as Fleet, Alton, Yateley and Andover. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Is it ok to load up my skip above level load line?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excessive waste prior to it being collected. No matter what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, since moving an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as objects could drop and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please be sure to hire a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
