Below are some of the typical questions we receive regarding our skip hire services.
New Alresford Skip Hire FAQs
Is it ok to load the skip above the side?
You must not fill the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe to move, and you can be asked to remove the excess waste before it can be collected.
How much does skip hire in New Alresford cost?
The price of getting a skip in New Alresford depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How large is the 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 called a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household jobs such as modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can typically hire a skip for up to 2 weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip which is ordered across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition work, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip is the biggest option which you can use for hefty waste materials such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in New Alresford?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a drive or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when your skip will be delivered, however it does help. Being home whenever the skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that your skip will be dropped exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to a company property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Having said that, for those who can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
How long will it take to get a skip in New Alresford?
We can in most cases supply skips to New Alresford the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system offers you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip delivered ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
What kinds of waste am I able to put in a skip?
Prior to ordering your skip, you must ensure that the kind of rubbish you want to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials have to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement designed to help protect the environment.
A few examples of waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You may also use a skip to get rid of building and construction waste, like timber, dirt, rubble, metals and concrete.
Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical products, car tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from your general waste.

Do you use local skip hire companies in New Alresford?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This includes things such as computers, hobs, washing machines, refrigerators and televisions. Electronic products can’t be discarded in your skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like dirt and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky items, like household furniture.
Will you deliver skips across Hampshire?
Indeed, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations throughout Hampshire, such as New Alresford, Havant, Winchester and Tadley. So wherever you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How large is a roll-on roll-off container?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste. Predominantly, these type of containers are used for commercial purposes. However, residential clients may also hire them. You should look at the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be used for light waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and stone.
Where will the rubbish go when the skip is picked up?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into various waste materials, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
