How much waste will the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them ideal for driveways.
They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. With a volume of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large industrial size skips used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that produce significant quantities of waste materials.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Horley?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or house, you will have to obtain authorisation from your local council in Horley, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that getting the licence will often take up to two working days.
How long will it take to get a skip in Horley?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted trip.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop door helps make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials such as soil and concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects like furniture easier also.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip that is ordered across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 yard builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy materials like dirt, concrete, rock and gravel.
How do I order a skip?
We have built our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to type in your delivery postcode to view the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Horley. Select the best size to meet your requirements and give us the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is done!
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
It is vital not to overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it can be very dangerous to transport. Which means that when you overfill the skip, you could be required to take off the excess waste. However secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is prohibited.
What is the cost of skip hire in Horley?
Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Horley. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. Once you have completed your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, however it can help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that your skip can be dropped precisely where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to company property, we will appreciate your support at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.
Do you deliver skips across Surrey?
We provide a UK wide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you need skip hire in Horley, Staines-upon-Thames, Sunbury, Walton-on-Thames or any other area in Surrey, we can assist.
What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or bricks from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted as well. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in your skip.
There are, however, some materials that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible ecological or health risk they may trigger.
You can’t get rid of your freezer, printer or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this material. Please contact us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including washing machines, televisions, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
Will a Horley skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Horley. We make use of a network of both local and national businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are vetted to make certain they match the high standards we demand in terms of service, cost and environmental performance.
What will happen to the rubbish?
The items in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, such as metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
