Selsey Skip Hire FAQs

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a nationwide waste management service, we use an extensive network of verified and approved businesses. These can range from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.

Which size skips will have a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door makes loading rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty waste materials such as soil or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky items such as furniture much easier also.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

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

Before getting your skip, it is important to ensure that the kind of waste you wish to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some goods and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you could discard in a skip include household items like pieces of furniture, floor tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and construction waste, including old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of prohibited items include electronic goods, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general waste.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction work. There are typically two different sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition materials, including garden soil, concrete and bricks.

Although branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

How long can I keep a skip for?

Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a wide range of sizes to suit various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip could be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building waste, like clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.

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

Guide to skip sizes

Do you deliver skips across West Sussex?

In addition to delivering skips and containers to Selsey, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across West Sussex. Through a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Selsey, Pulborough or Worthing, we have got you covered.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on numerous tasks.

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

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. Then you can make sure the lorry has total access and that the skip is situated precisely where you need it. The same is true if you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates limit access.

However, when this is not possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your order, and then we will take care of the rest.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of waste. Predominantly, these type of containers are used for industrial purposes. Having said that, household customers may also hire them. You will need to think about the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they should only be used for light-weight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and rubble.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Selsey?

We will ensure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Selsey?

The cost of hiring a skip in Selsey will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into a variety of waste types, such as timber, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Selsey?

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

Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the level load line?

It is essential not to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very unsafe to move. This means that when you overfill your skip, you might be required to take off the excess waste. No matter how safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Am I allowed to put electrical items in the skip?

Unfortunately not, as electrical items such as old televisions, freezers, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.

Other areas covered include Pulborough, Worthing, Crawley, Hassocks, East Grinstead, Horsham, Midhurst and Cuckfield.
