Margate Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can typically hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of providing a preferred collection day when you place your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.

It could take a bit longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.

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

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric goods such as tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

Am I allowed to dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. The most important thing to consider is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish that could come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Among the most common things that we see in our skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and other household products.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This includes any electronic objects (fridges and freezers, TVs or washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them has to abide by a completely different process to ensure they do not result in harm to the environment.

How large is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip could be the best solution. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they provide.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for domestic tasks like modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Can you deliver skips across Kent?

Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can provide skips to domestic and commercial customers across Kent and anywhere else within the UK.

How much will skip hire in Margate cost?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Margate, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we offer in your location and how much each size costs to order. If the skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Margate?

If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic job, then your driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be placed on a street, grass verge or other public property in Margate. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial size skips used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

It is essential to not overload a skip. You should not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you could be asked to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. That is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it delivered, we can manage everything.

For those who are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you book the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped at a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent access to your garage.

No matter what the case might be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure the directions will be passed to the lorry driver.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip may be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, they are the most common sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How big is a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip hired throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition work, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size that you can use for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.

How long does it take to get a skip in Margate?

We will make sure your skip is provided when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Which skip sizes can have a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.

Other areas covered include Sandwich, Rochester, Canterbury, Broadstairs, Maidstone, Minster, Ashford and Ramsgate.
