How much does skip hire in Lewes cost?

Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Lewes. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

What size is a builders skip?

The term builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The label comes from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are fantastic for a multitude of household and industrial projects. They are the largest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like dirt, stone and bricks.

What is a mini skip?

For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip may be the ideal choice. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, depending on what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard container for their smallest option. The price is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential jobs including small DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Using a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste materials such as dirt and concrete, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this may sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

Can you deliver to other areas in East Sussex?

We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you need skip hire in Lewes, Hailsham, Newhaven, Uckfield or another area in East Sussex, we are able to assist.

If I need a skip on the road in Lewes, will I need to have a permit?

Normally, it will be possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must get approval from your local council in Lewes, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to arrange this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

It is important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded container can be dangerous, as waste could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To avoid this situation, please ensure that you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t possible, you do not have to stress. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into different waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will give you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

What types of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our service. The main thing to remember is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish that will result from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical items that we pick up in skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, cupboards, toilets, and various other household items.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electrical products (refrigerators, monitors or washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them has to adhere to a completely different process to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

If you manage a company in Lewes and wish to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the label implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. 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 can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent choice for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to tackle, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, including soil and stone. But they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
