Midhurst Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is ordered across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is ideal for most building and demolition projects, which is where the name comes from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest size which you can use for hefty materials like soil, concrete, stone and gravel.
What is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for residential work such as modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?
Using a skip with a drop down door will make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste such as dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.
Do I need to be in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be at home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we can access where you want it delivered, we will manage it all.
If you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when you place your order. For example, you might need the skip to be located on a particular area of your property. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t hinder entry to your garage.
Whatever the situation may be, provide the information when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions are passed to the delivery driver.
Will you deliver to other areas in West Sussex?
Certainly, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to locations across West Sussex, such as Midhurst, East Grinstead, Cuckfield and Bognor Regis. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How many different skip sizes are there?
Skips come in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a great choice for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and stone. But they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Midhurst?
Usually, it is possible to get a skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you need to have approval from the local authority in Midhurst, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the very next day.
Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a range of waste types, such as timber, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Can I dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electrical objects such as televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the top?
You must not fill a skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe to move, and you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Can I dispose of all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you will be using a skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
