Ilford Skip Hire FAQs

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or local authority property (like the street). Next, select the date you need the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Ilford on the day you have selected.

Will a Ilford skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Ilford. We employ a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to guarantee they fulfill the high standards we demand when it comes to service, cost and environmental performance.

What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is collected?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the rubbish will be separated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, like metal, paper, rubble and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip companies and is good for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 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 a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?

The majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic goods including cookers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.

The builders skip is perfect for a number of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the attic, these big containers tend to be the most affordable option available.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you run a business in Ilford and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name implies, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are lifted using chains.

What is the cost of skip hire in Ilford?

Our aim is to provide you with the lowest priced skip hire service in Ilford. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the street or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will give you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What waste can I put in a skip?

Before you hire your skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste materials you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.

Some examples of waste types you are able to discard in a skip include home goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use a skip to discard building and demolition rubbish, like bricks, top soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Some examples of restricted items include things like electrical products, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be discarded separately from general waste.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Ilford?

We can usually supply skips to Ilford the next working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system provides you with a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe and secure to move, and you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be collected.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there when it is delivered. You can then make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.

Having said that, if that isn’t achievable, you don’t have to worry. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of everything.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Ilford?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you will have to get authorisation from your local authority in Ilford, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your road permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can often take up to 2 working days.

Other areas covered include Streatham, South West London, Ruislip, Northolt, Notting Hill, Romford, Wimbledon and Wandsworth.
