What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most common skip which is hired across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option which you can use for hefty waste such as soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods need to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items such as washing machines, monitors, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
Do all skips have a drop door?
The vast majority of skips can be delivered with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like household furniture.
Will a skip hire company from Paddock Wood deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Paddock Wood and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being there when your skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry can be given complete access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Paddock Wood?
Hiring a skip in Paddock Wood with us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you require and then enter a couple of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Is it okay to load my skip above the side?
You should not load your skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you can be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be picked up.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
What skip sizes do you supply?

For more info about our selection of skips, such as measurements and the waste materials they can be used for, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, cardboard, stone and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you have requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries can lead to a charge for a wasted journey.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Predominantly, these containers are hired for industrial applications. Having said that, household clients may also use them. It is essential to consider the space they will take up, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be utilised for lightweight materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and concrete.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Generally, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are able to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building wastes like bricks or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to use is an 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How much does skip hire in Paddock Wood cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Paddock Wood depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have your skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Paddock Wood?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
Should you have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.
