Haslemere Skip Hire FAQs
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad 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 pick it up as quickly as possible.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Haslemere?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we can even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
Can I pile up waste in my skip?
It is essential to never overload the skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that if you overfill the skip, you might be required to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how safe you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce large volumes of waste materials.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Am I allowed to put electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered goods such as tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

What is classed as a builders skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be hired to discard weighty construction waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.
The builders skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out your loft, these large containers are often the most affordable choice available.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
For anybody who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, however these are generally less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our best to make sure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
How can I order a skip online?
Hiring a skip in Haslemere through us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you will need and enter a couple of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What types of rubbish can I get rid of in a skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip depends on the size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste such as bricks or top soil, the biggest size you can use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
What is the cost of skip hire in Haslemere?
The price of hiring a skip in Haslemere is determined by the size of skip you want. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have the skip positioned on the highway, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be at home when we are delivering your skip. So long as we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we will take care of everything.
In the event you will not be in, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you may prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of your property. Or you might want to ensure that the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, provide the details when you place your order, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed on to the delivery driver.
Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Haslemere?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you will have to obtain permission from your local council in Haslemere, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
