Hammersmith Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver to other areas in London?
Along with delivering skips to Hammersmith, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout London. Through a network of local and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Hammersmith, Bexleyheath or Battersea, we have got it covered.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being home when the skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the driver is given full access and that your skip can be located precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available for delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will organise everything from there.
Who will deliver my skip?

When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can in most cases deliver skips to Hammersmith the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system will give you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most commonly used for building work. There are typically two sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, including dirt, rubble and rock.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
What kinds of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste that may result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.
Among the most common items that we see in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge cuttings, cabinets, bathroom suites, as well as other household items.
There are also some materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. For example, any electrical goods (tumble dryers, TVs and laptops for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them needs to follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.
Can I have a skip which has a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop door will make loading rubbish into it much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as soil or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like furniture much easier as well.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Hammersmith?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to receive permission from your local council in Hammersmith, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the street). Next, select the day you need your skip to get delivered. Check your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Hammersmith on the day you have selected.
Is it ok to load my skip above the side?
It is vital to not overfill the skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to move. This means that if you overfill the skip, you may be asked to take off the surplus waste. No matter how safe you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is prohibited.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are fantastic for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Predominantly, these type of skips are hired for commercial uses. Having said that, household customers may also order them. You have to look at the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be hired for light-weight waste including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and hardcore.
What will happen to the waste in my skip?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Hammersmith where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Hammersmith?
The price of getting a skip in Hammersmith depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you want to have a skip positioned on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can I throw away electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electronic products including old televisions, fridges, printers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
What skip sizes do you offer?
We are able to supply a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for modest DIY tasks and household clearances. A common option for bigger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Hammersmith businesses which produce a big amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
