Fulham Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a business in Fulham and wish to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike standard skips, that are lifted by using chains.
How long will it take to get a skip in Fulham?
We will ensure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What sort of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of rubbish into the skip. This includes wood, tile, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden tasks are permitted also. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
However, there are things that you cannot put in a skip because of the potential environmental or health risk they can cause.
You are unable to throw out your fridge, laptop or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous elements in one form or another. They should be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical goods like cookers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle numerous jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.
Will the skip come with a drop door?
In general, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, depending on size, availability and area. If you require a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is primarily useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the street in Fulham?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you need to get authorisation from your local council in Fulham, which is called a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should know before booking that securing the licence can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Will a skip hire company from Fulham deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
How do you order a skip in Fulham?
Hiring a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Fulham. Select the size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on your own property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Do I need to be there when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can gain access to where you want it delivered, we are able to manage everything.
If you are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place the order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the driveway. Or you might need to ensure that the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What size skips can you offer?
Skips come in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic projects.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these represent the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard containers and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Will you deliver skips across London?
Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to areas across London, including Fulham, Forest Hill, Brixton and Richmond. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most popular skip which is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction jobs, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 yard builders skip is the largest option that can be used for heavy materials including dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.
Is it ok to load my skip above the level load mark?
It is vital to not overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill the skip, you could be required to remove the excess rubbish. However secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The standard hire period is a fortnight from your date of delivery. However, at the time you book your skip, you can select a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than expected, let us know, and we will get it collected as soon as possible.
We can usually make collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case during busy times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What happens to the waste?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a number of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
How much will skip hire in Fulham cost?
This depends upon the size you will need and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.
