We deliver skips throughout Grove Park and the surrounding areas. If you are ordering a skip placed on your private property (like a driveway), we can often schedule delivery within 24 hours. Skips that will be located on a street require a little longer, as we have to obtain a permit from the local council.

For more information about hiring a skip plus the service we offer, we have addressed some of the frequently asked questions below. Can’t find what you want? Get in touch with a member of our team who will be glad to help.
Grove Park Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Grove Park?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position the skip on your own land, you will save some money.
Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load mark?
No. You are only allowed to fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up above this line will make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.
What size is a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are ideal for an array of domestic and industrial tasks. These are the biggest skips which you can use for weighty builders waste such as dirt, rubble and bricks.
Will a Grove Park skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Grove Park and the rest of the country. All of our partner businesses are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How much does skip hire in Grove Park cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Grove Park, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the skip sizes we offer in your area and how much each one will cost to hire. If the skip is going on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
What happens to my rubbish when the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the various waste streams, such as timber, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we are able to access where you want it positioned, we will take care of everything.
If you are not likely to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure the skip does not hinder access to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions are passed to the lorry driver.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful when you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to take on many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
You can in most cases keep a skip for up to 14 days from the delivery date. You can provide a chosen collection date at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will organise your collection. In most cases, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over busy periods.
What sizes do skips come in?
This site offers a whole range of skip capacities to household and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Listed below are the different skip sizes you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much waste each skip can hold:

Am I allowed to throw electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic goods such as tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We can typically provide a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, as to go on public property (for example a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
How do I order a skip in Grove Park?
This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Next, pick the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order and make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Grove Park on the date you have selected.
Will you deliver to other areas in London?
Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations across London, such as Grove Park, Hampstead, Clapham and Bromley. So no matter where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to throw a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in a skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they might trigger.
You can’t throw out your fridge, printer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous materials in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this material. Feel free to email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you have a company in Grove Park and need to dispose of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container could be a great option. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike standard skips, that are picked up by using chains.
