Sandy Skip Hire FAQs

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electronic objects including television sets, freezers, fridges, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered items should be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

How much does skip hire in Sandy cost?

This depends on the size you require and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced option. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in commercial settings.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you have a company in Sandy and need to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips available.

As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike conventional skips, which are lifted by using chains.

Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?

It is essential not to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very hazardous to transport. Which means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to take away the excess rubbish. However secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is not allowed.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building jobs. There are generally two skip sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition materials, including garden soil, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Where will the waste go when the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into the different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

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

If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

Having said that, if that is not possible, you don’t have to be concerned. Just let us know when placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Will you deliver to other areas in Bedfordshire?

Through our network of local and national skip businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Sandy, Kempston or Leighton Buzzard, we have got you covered.

What size is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip might be the best choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they provide.

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

Mini skips are ideal for household tasks including small DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How do you order a skip in Sandy?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the road). Then, pick the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Sandy on the date you have selected.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You are able to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include wood, soil, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using a skip for heavy building waste including stone or top soil, the largest size you could hire is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

Will a skip hire company from Sandy deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Sandy and the rest of the country. All of our partner businesses are verified and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Can I get a skip which has a drop door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily helpful when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste directly into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Sandy?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own land, you will save a few pounds.

Other areas covered include Kempston, Leighton Buzzard, Biggleswade, Luton, Stotfold, Dunstable, Potton and Ampthill.
