Petersfield Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Petersfield?
Our aim is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Petersfield. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip placed on the road or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
Do I need to be there when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when the skip is being delivered, however it can help. Being there whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry can be given complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, in the event you can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
How big is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some companies will offer a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Where will my waste go once the skip is collected?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Petersfield where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Will you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Petersfield, Basingstoke, Tadley, Fleet or any other site in Hampshire, we are able to help.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
A skip can be used to discard many different types of waste. We are used to picking up and processing a multitude of materials from construction jobs, garden landscaping and household tidy-ups. Examples of permitted waste products include:
- Tree trimmings
- Top soil
- Bathroom suites
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Most waste types are usually accepted, and so whether you wish to throw out metals, plastics, wood or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and things you put into the skip will vary according to which size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to discard soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size container you would be permitted to use is the 8 yard skip.
Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?
There are a few waste materials that you will not be allowed to dump in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items contain hazardous elements that may damage the environment. They can also be harmful to human health, so they need to be disposed of separately within UK regulations.
Some of the things that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Chemical substances
Can I put electrical items in the skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic products like old TVs, cookers, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
Is it okay to load up the skip above level load mark?
It is vital to never overfill a skip. You must not pass the level load line that is indicated along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to remove the surplus waste. Regardless of how safe you believe the skip is, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.
What different sizes do skips come in?
Skips are available in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for attic clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more significant waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, including clay and rubble. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also offer 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
How can I order a skip online?
Hiring a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your postcode to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Petersfield. Pick which size you wish to order, and confirm if it is going to be delivered on private property. Type in your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
Once your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
If I would like a skip on the road in Petersfield, will I need to get a permit?
Normally, it will be possible to get a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you need to get consent from the local authority in Petersfield, which is called a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Will a skip hire company from Petersfield deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Petersfield and the rest of the country. Our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Which size skips have a drop door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop door, though these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for as many as 14 days from the delivery date. You may provide a preferred pick up day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and then we will plan the collection. Generally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over busy periods.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate significant quantities of waste.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are suited to numerous domestic and industrial projects. These are the largest sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste including dirt, stone and concrete.
