Fordingbridge Skip Hire FAQs
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include such things as laptops, hobs, washing machines, fridges and computer monitors. These items can’t be discarded in the skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations throughout Hampshire, including Fordingbridge, Bishop’s Waltham, Gosport and Basingstoke. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of huge volumes of waste. Predominantly, these type of containers are hired for industrial uses. However, domestic customers can also hire them. It is important to take into account the area they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for light-weight waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a range of waste types, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How long will it take to get a skip in Fordingbridge?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Fordingbridge?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). After that, choose the date you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Fordingbridge on the day you have chosen.
Do I need to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
Having said that, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.
What is the cost of skip hire in Fordingbridge?
The cost of hiring a skip in Fordingbridge will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you want to have a skip on the highway, as you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door will make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like dirt or concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky items like household furniture easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Fordingbridge?
Generally, it will be possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you need to have permission from the local authority in Fordingbridge, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when placing your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the next working day.
It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Will a skip hire company from Fordingbridge deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to guarantee they satisfy our high customer service and environmental expectations.
What are the different skip sizes available?
We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger sized jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Fordingbridge firms which produce a large volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What things can I put in the skip?
Before getting a skip, it is essential to ensure that the sort of rubbish you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may put in a skip include home items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to get rid of building and construction waste, such as wood, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include electronic items, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overfill a skip, as you risk being required to take out surplus waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as transporting an overloaded bin is dangerous, as objects could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please be sure to order a skip size suited to your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip that is hired in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy waste materials like dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
