Hockley Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Hockley?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you will need to receive permission from the local authority in Hockley, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.
How do I order a skip?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Hockley. Pick which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it will be dropped on private property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than the top?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up above this line makes it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.
Can you deliver skips across Essex?
We offer a UK wide skip hire and waste management service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you would like skip hire in Hockley, Basildon, Grays, Chipping Ongar or any other location in Essex, we are able to assist.
Where does the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste streams, including wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suited to a wide variety of residential and commercial projects. These are the largest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like top soil, rubble and bricks.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can normally keep a skip for up to 14 days from your date of delivery. It is possible to give a preferred pick up day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have loaded the skip, and we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Hockley?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Hockley and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are verified and tested to guarantee they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Hockley?
The price of getting a skip in Hockley will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical products like washing machines, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you have a small quantity of waste to throw out, a mini skip may be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price is based on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for residential tasks including small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
What sizes do skips come in?
We offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. A common option for more substantial projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Hockley companies which have a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial scale skips used primarily in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door will make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials like dirt and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up large bulky objects such as furniture easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Hockley?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will normally offer a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a street), you will need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What kinds of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?
You are able to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip depends on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy building waste like stone or garden soil, the largest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
