Havant Skip Hire FAQs
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Havant, you have various sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are ideal for household tidy ups involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to light materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further information about the various skip sizes available, including measurements, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What skip sizes can have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door makes loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials such as soil and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky items such as household furniture much easier too.
Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
How much will skip hire in Havant cost?
Our aim is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Havant. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the road or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Havant?
Generally, it is possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you have got to have consent from the local authority in Havant, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council do impose a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a national skip hire service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These vary from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
The materials in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, plastics, stone and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, as electrical products including old televisions, fridges, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly fashion.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Havant?
We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee 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 should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size provided by skip companies and is perfect for small DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Can you deliver skips across Hampshire?
Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can offer skips to both household and industrial customers across Hampshire and anywhere else in the UK.
Is it ok to load the skip above level load line?
You must not fill a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to move, and you may be asked to take off any excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Havant?
Hiring a skip in Havant with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you will need and input a couple of details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are fantastic for numerous domestic and business tasks. These are the largest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste including soil, stone and concrete.
What types of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?
Before ordering a skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste you wish to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials must be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Some examples of waste types it is possible to put in your skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, such as old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be disposed of separately from your general waste.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips that are used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste.
Other areas covered include Petersfield, Andover, Fleet, Southampton, Tadley, Eastleigh, Winchester and Portsmouth.
