Hook Skip Hire FAQs
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on the size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Am I allowed to put electrical items in my skip?
Electrical items including television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products need to be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
What happens to the waste?
After you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Hook where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
What is the cost of skip hire in Hook?
The cost of getting a skip in Hook is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
Of course, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations throughout Hampshire, including Hook, Fordingbridge, Tadley and Bishop’s Waltham. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The standard hire term will be 2 weeks from your date of delivery. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.
Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible at busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to a local waste recycling station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What is the process of ordering a skip in Hook?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Hook. Select which size you would like to hire, and confirm whether it will be dropped on private property. Enter in your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Hook?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, you will save some pounds.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It usually is a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What sort of rubbish can you throw in a skip?
This is one of the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish that could result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Some of the most frequent things which we collect in our skips include soil, wood, bush cuttings, kitchen units, baths, and other household objects.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This can include any electrical products (fridges and freezers, TVs or laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and getting rid of them must follow a completely different procedure to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We will typically offer a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, as to be on public property (like a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.
Will a Hook skip hire company deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can provide customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.
What skip sizes can you provide?
Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.
Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these represent the most typical sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
You must not fill up your skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be collected.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most popular sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are fantastic for an array of domestic and commercial tasks. They are the largest skip sizes that can be used for hefty builders waste including top soil, stone and concrete.
