Polegate Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Polegate skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Polegate?

In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want the skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to obtain permission from the local authority in Polegate, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be happy to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that obtaining the licence will often take up to two working days.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are offered in a number of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is 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 will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name implies, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, like household furniture.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest skips used to dispose of weighty construction materials such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.

The builders skip is great for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these substantial containers will often be the most affordable solution available.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of huge volumes of waste. Mostly, these type of skips are used for industrial applications. Having said that, household clients may also order them. You have to look at the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light-weight materials including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and hardcore.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip is delivered, however it does help. Being in when your skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, if you can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.

How do I hire a skip?

Ordering a skip in Polegate through us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you need and then enter a couple of details about when and where you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Is it okay to fill the skip above level load mark?

No, you are only allowed to fill up your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

What can I put in the skip?

Your skip can be hired to discard many different types of waste materials. We are used to picking up and handling a multitude of materials produced from building work, garden landscaping and property clean-ups. Examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Home furnishings
  • Garden cuttings
  • Garden soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many different waste materials are usually permitted, therefore whether you wish to discard furniture, plastic materials, timber or fabric, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and items you discard in the skip can vary based on which size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like dispose of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you would be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Are there any items that I can’t discard in the skip?

There are some materials which you are not able to throw out in the skip. The reason for this is that these goods include hazardous materials which could cause damage to the environment. They may also be harmful to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to offer you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery area, as failed deliveries will lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Polegate?

This depends upon the skip size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip might be the ideal choice. What size is identified as a mini skip differs from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.

The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost depends on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for residential work such as modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Will you deliver skips across East Sussex?

Certainly, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations throughout East Sussex, including Polegate, Bexhill, Rye and Hailsham. So wherever you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

What happens to my waste once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Polegate where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Can I throw away electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electronic items such as old televisions, cookers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.

Other areas covered include Bexhill, Rye, Hailsham, Peacehaven, Hastings, Battle, Newhaven and Eastbourne.
