Sawbridgeworth Skip Hire FAQs
How much will skip hire in Sawbridgeworth cost?
The cost of getting a skip in Sawbridgeworth is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you want to have a skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, in the event you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
How do I order a skip?
Hiring a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter in your address to view the range of skip sizes we can deliver to Sawbridgeworth. Pick which size you want to hire, and confirm whether it is going to be dropped on your own property. Type in your information and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition jobs. There are usually two different sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition waste, including garden soil, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other residential and business waste disposal jobs.
Do I need to be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. This also is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when making your order, and we will handle the rest.
Which skip sizes can have a drop down door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, although these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Sawbridgeworth?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit when your skip is on private property, like a driveway or within your company premises.
Should you need to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just let us know while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
What kinds of waste can I throw in a skip?
It is possible to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, if you are using your skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or top soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. Most 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 your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a fee for a wasted trip.
Am I able to put electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old electronic waste items in a skip. This can include things such as computers, cookers, tumble dryers, refrigerators and tv sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Sawbridgeworth, you will have various sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also makes them suitable for house clear ups involving large items such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suited to lightweight materials, so they can not be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
For additional details about the various skip sizes available, including dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Will a skip hire company from Sawbridgeworth deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Sawbridgeworth. We employ a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly assessed to ensure they satisfy the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is called a mini skip is different from company to company, according to what sizes they provide.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are fantastic for residential work like modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
Do you deliver to other areas in Hertfordshire?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations across Hertfordshire, such as Sawbridgeworth, Harpenden, Buntingford and Bishop’s Stortford. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Can I load the skip above the level load mark?
It is important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excess waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you order, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, since transporting an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as rubbish could fall and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please ensure that you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are happy to provide an exchange.
Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, like soil, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial size skips used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
