Romsey Skip Hire FAQs

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial scale skips used predominantly in the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that produce significant quantities of waste.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Romsey?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a charge for the wasted journey.

What will happen to the waste?

When you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Romsey where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Can you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?

Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to locations across Hampshire, such as Romsey, Tadley, Portsmouth and Blackwater. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

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

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods such as tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, a builder’s skip may be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the title implies, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for building waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also deliver 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What kinds of waste can I throw in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the type of waste you need to discard will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and are not allowed to get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to discard building and demolition waste, such as timber, dirt, rubble, metals and gravel.

Examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from any general waste.

Will a Romsey skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we offer a nationwide waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These range from small local skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.

If I need a skip on the road in Romsey, will I need to have a permit?

In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to receive permission from the local authority in Romsey, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

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

How do I hire a skip?

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your postcode to view the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Romsey. Select the best size to meet your requirements and provide the details of where and when you would like your skip delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify the order once your order is done!

What size skips will have a door?

When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is made for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, though these are less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is delivered.

Is it ok to stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important never to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out surplus waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip can be hazardous, as rubbish could fall and cause injuries or damage to other people.

To prevent this issue, please ensure you hire a skip size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

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

If you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there when it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be situated precisely where you need it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates limit access.

Having said that, if that isn’t possible, you don’t have to worry. Just let us know when placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Romsey?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Romsey. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip positioned on the highway or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can generally keep the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of providing a preferred collection time when you place your order.

Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It may take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy periods, however we will always try to be there as swiftly as possible.

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

A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of substantial building and construction materials such as rock, concrete, gravel or dirt.

The builders skip is ideal for a number of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your bathroom or cleaning out the shed, these big skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.

Other areas covered include Tadley, Portsmouth, Blackwater, Southampton, Bishop’s Waltham, Wickham, New Alresford and Bordon.
