Below are a few of the common questions we receive with regards to our skip hire services.
Hassocks Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver to other areas in West Sussex?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Hassocks, Cuckfield, Worthing, Crawley or another site in West Sussex, we are able to assist.
What types of waste can I put in a skip?
It is possible to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, garden soil, concrete, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy building wastes including stone or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most often used for construction jobs. There are typically two different sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, rubble and bricks.
Although branded a builder’s skip, they can of course be used for various other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
Is it ok to load the skip above the top?
No. You can only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up above this line would make it dangerous to move, and you may be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What skip sizes can have a door?
In general, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I able to throw electronic products in the skip?
Electrical products including tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic items need to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for as long as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a preferred pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange your collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy times.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a substantial skip that can be used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are predominantly for business use but can be hired by household clients as well. Having said that, you should have a good amount of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roro skips should only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of soil and rubble.
How much does skip hire in Hassocks cost?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Hassocks. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip placed on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip is delivered, however it can help. Being there when your skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to business property, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange things from there.
Will a Hassocks skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These can range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Hassocks?
We will make sure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.
How do you hire a skip online?
We have built our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your address to view all the different skip sizes we can supply in Hassocks. Select the right size to meet your requirements and give us the details of when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm the transaction as soon as your booking is done!
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Hassocks?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be located on land outside of your business or residence, you must secure permission from the local authority in Hassocks, which is known as a permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before booking that securing the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
Where does the waste go when the skip is picked up?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Hassocks, you have various options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also makes them well suited for household clearances involving large items like household furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
