Reigate Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you don’t need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

As soon as your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Reigate?

As we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small local skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial size skips that are used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that produce large volumes of waste.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

The builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the biggest skips used to dispose of weighty building and demolition waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out the loft, these substantial containers are usually the most cost-effective option available.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

Your skip can be hired to discard lots of different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling numerous items from building work, garden projects and home tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste materials include:

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

Many materials are usually accepted, therefore whether you wish to dispose of furniture, plastics, wood or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and materials you put in the skip can vary according to the size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you need to dispose of garden soil and concrete, for example, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?

There are several waste materials that you are not able to get rid of in your skip. The reason behind this is that some products include hazardous elements which can be harmful to the environment. They may also be hazardous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Where will my waste go once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?

No, you cannot dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste items in a skip. This includes such things as printers, hobs, washing machines, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be thrown in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Reigate?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or on your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, and we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.

What size skips can have a drop door?

In general, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial when hiring a big builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is the cost of skip hire in Reigate?

Our aim is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Reigate. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the highway or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added cost of the skip permit.

What skip sizes do you deliver?

Skips are available in a selection of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is great for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a fantastic choice for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for building waste, including soil and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also provide 10-16 yard bins and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Will you deliver to other areas in Surrey?

In addition to delivering skips to Reigate, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Surrey. By utilising our network of regional and national skip companies, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Reigate, Woking or Horley, we have got you covered.

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ensure your skip is provided on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.

Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted trip.

Do I have to be home when the skip will be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you want it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

However, if that is not feasible, you don’t have to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.

Am I allowed to load my skip above level load mark?

It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being required to take off excessive waste prior to it being collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip is unsafe, as objects could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.

To prevent this problem, please be sure to hire a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have further rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to provide an exchange.

Other areas covered include Woking, Horley, Haslemere, Epsom, Chertsey, Sunbury-on-Thames, West Byfleet and Oxted.
