Lee Skip Hire FAQs

How do I order a skip in Lee?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your delivery address to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Lee. Pick which size you wish to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be delivered on private property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

When your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you need it delivered, we can take care of everything.

In case you are not likely to be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located on a particular part of your property. Or you might need to be sure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation may be, provide the details when you place your order, and we will ensure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip companies and is good for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste. Predominantly, these type of skips are used for industrial uses. However, household clients may also use them. It is important to take into account the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for lightweight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and concrete.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest containers used to discard heavy building waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or clay.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the shed, these big containers are usually the most affordable option available.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lee?

Normally, it will be possible to have your skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you need to have approval from your local council in Lee, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for the license, and it will sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

What skip sizes do you supply?

We can offer a wide selection of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for larger tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Lee firms with a large amount of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Lee?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even provide a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed during the online order process.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Lee where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What size skips will have a drop door?

Having a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste like soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up large bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.

Will you deliver skips across Greater London?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and waste management service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Lee, Hayes, Woolwich, Ilford or any other site in Greater London, we are able to assist.

What things can I put in my skip?

Your skip can be hired to dispose of many different types of waste. We are used to collecting and processing a wide variety of materials generated from building work, garden projects and property clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste materials include things like:

  • Furniture
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Cabinets and units

Many different materials are generally permitted, so whether you need to discard furniture, plastics, timber or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you discard in your skip can vary according to which size skip you ordered. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you want to discard soil and concrete, as an example, the biggest size container you will be permitted to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are several waste items that you are not able to put in your skip. The reason for this is that these goods include hazardous elements which could harm the environment. They can also be damaging to human health, so they have to be discarded separately within UK law.

Examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can normally hire the skip for up to a fortnight from the day that it is delivered. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, however we will always try to come as swiftly as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Can I get rid of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old electrical waste items in a skip. This includes items like printers, microwaves, washing machines, fridges and computer monitors. These items can’t be discarded in your skip as they can have hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Lee?

The price of hiring a skip in Lee is determined by the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip placed on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

Can I load up the skip higher than level load line?

No. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you can be asked to take away the excess waste before the skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.

Other areas covered include Hayes, Woolwich, Ilford, Orpington, Waltham Forest, Teddington, Southall and Lambeth.
