Lewisham Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lewisham?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.
Which size skips will have a drop down door?
For anybody who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also come with a drop-down door, though these are typically more uncommon. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there when your skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will organise things from there.
What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
How long does it take to get a skip in Lewisham?
We can normally deliver skips to Lewisham the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking system offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you need your skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for organisations that produce significant volumes of waste materials.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in the skip?
Electrical objects like TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and so cannot be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered goods should be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What sort of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
It is possible to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in your skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy building waste such as stone or garden soil, the maximum size you could hire is the 8 yard skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We are able to offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for larger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Lewisham firms which produce a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the largest containers used to discard weighty construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.
The builders skip is ideal for a number of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out the garage, these substantial containers are often the most cost-effective option available.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip is different from business to business, based on what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are great for residential tasks such as modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
Am I allowed to load up my skip above level load line?
I’m afraid not. You can only fill your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste materials up over this line makes it unsafe to transport, and you can be told to get rid of the surplus waste before your skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Lewisham?
Hiring a skip in Lewisham through us is very straightforward. Decide on the skip size you require and input a handful of details about when and where you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
How much will skip hire in Lewisham cost?
The price of hiring a skip in Lewisham depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
