Pinner Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to supply a wide range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Pinner companies which produce a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long can I hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that gives you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t need to be home when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being there when your skip is due for delivery means that you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, when you can’t be around during delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place the order, and then we will organise everything from there.
Will a skip hire company from Pinner deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Pinner?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Pinner. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip situated on the road or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of a skip permit.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Pinner?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you have got to obtain permission from your local authority in Pinner, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to 2 working days.
Can I pile up the waste in my skip?
It is important to never overload a skip. You must not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be asked to take off the excess waste. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This can be hazardous and is not allowed.
What types of waste can I throw in a skip?
A skip may be used to discard a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of materials produced from building work, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste types include things like:
- Home furnishings
- Garden cuttings
- Top soil
- Bricks and rubble
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Many different materials are accepted, therefore whether you need to discard furniture, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and things you throw into the skip can vary based on the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to discard garden soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size container you would be permitted to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some waste items which you are not permitted to dump in the skip. The reason behind this is that some products contain hazardous elements which may cause harm to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK laws.
Some examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be used to discard weighty building and demolition materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
The builders skip is perfect for a number of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing out your attic, these big skips are usually the most affordable option available.
Can I put electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste products in your skip. This includes things like printers, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in the skip as they can have 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.
How long does it take to get a skip in Pinner?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed deliveries will lead to a charge for the wasted journey.

How do I hire a skip in Pinner?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (such as the street). Next, choose the day you want the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Pinner on the date you have chosen.
How large is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip firms and is good for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door will make loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as garden soil and stone, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects like household furniture much easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this can sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial scale skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This means that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
