Hatfield Skip Hire FAQs
Will the skip have a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like dirt or rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading big bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
Will you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Certainly, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across Hertfordshire, such as Hatfield, St Albans, Royston and Watford. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What can I put in my skip?
You can fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in your skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy building wastes including concrete or top soil, the maximum size you can get is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Will a Hatfield skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a UK-wide waste management service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical products such as televisions, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items need to be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a number of waste streams, including wood, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You will need to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Hatfield?
This depends on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate the skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be hired by household customers too. Having said that, you will need a lot of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro skips can only be used for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can in most cases keep your skip for as many as 2 weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen pick up date at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know after you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during busy periods.
How much will skip hire in Hatfield cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Hatfield, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we provide in your town and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.
How big is a builders skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The name originates from the fact that they are the most typical sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suitable for numerous types of household and industrial projects. These are the biggest size skips that you can use for weighty builders waste like soil, stone and bricks.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you want it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.
In the event you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you place your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be located on a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you may need to be sure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
Whatever the case might be, tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.
Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important to not overload a skip, as you run the risk of being required to take off surplus waste before it can be collected. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container will be hazardous, as waste could fall and cause injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please make sure you order a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
