Lymington Skip Hire FAQs

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. The same applies when you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

However, if this isn’t possible, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when making your booking, and then we will take care of everything.

Do you deliver skips across Hampshire?

Sure, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas across Hampshire, including Lymington, Tadley, Bordon and Hedge End. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric objects need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical products such as tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hairdryers.

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of weighty building and demolition waste such as rock, bricks, rubble or soil.

A builders skip is perfect for a number of tasks. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the loft space, these big containers are often the most affordable option available.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste materials. Generally, these containers are used for industrial uses. Having said that, residential clients can also hire them. It is important to look at the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be hired for lightweight materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

Using a skip which has a drop down door can make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials such as soil or concrete, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

Where will the rubbish go when the skip is collected?

The waste in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, cardboard, concrete and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.

How long can I keep 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 fill your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Lymington?

Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Lymington. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip placed on the road or other council property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your postcode to view the range of skips we are able to deliver to Lymington. Select the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be positioned on private property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

Is it okay to fill my skip higher than level load line?

It is vital never to overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus waste. No matter how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a fantastic option for shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal task to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, these represent the most typical sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like soil and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted journey.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is great for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Can I throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

You can fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building wastes such as rubble or soil, the maximum size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

Will a Lymington skip hire company deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Lymington and the rest of the country. Each of our partner firms are verified and tested to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Lymington?

Normally, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business.
