Godalming Skip Hire FAQs
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can typically give you a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (for example a street), you will need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Godalming?
The cost of getting a skip in Godalming is determined by the size of skip you need. The lowest priced option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you need a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste, from household furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and garden soil. Having a volume of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make several visits to the local recycling centre.
Will you deliver to other areas in Surrey?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you need skip hire in Godalming, Weybridge, Walton-on-Thames, Epsom or another site in Surrey, we are able to assist.
Am I allowed to load up the skip above level load line?
You must not fill the skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not secure to move, and you might be asked to take off any excess waste prior to it being picked up.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you want it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.
If you are not likely to be at home, simply let us have any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped on a particular area of your property. Or you might want to be sure that the skip does not hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed to the delivery driver.
What size skips can have a door?
Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful if you are hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for larger jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Godalming businesses which have a large quantity of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Will a Godalming skip hire company deliver my skip?

This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you may fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste that will result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most common things which we collect in our skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, cabinets, baths, and various other household products.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic goods (fridges and freezers, TVs or printers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore getting rid of them has to comply with an entirely different process to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Godalming?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a domestic job, then your drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Godalming. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be granted for you. An additional fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
Normally, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest containers used to discard heavy construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or clay.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your shed, these substantial skips are usually the most cost-effective solution available.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
If you have a company in Godalming and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips available.
As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted by using chains.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in the skip?
Electronic items including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects need to be segregated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly way.
Other areas covered include Weybridge, Walton-on-Thames, Epsom, Banstead, East Molesey, Sunbury, Caterham and West Byfleet.
