Will a Sheerness skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Sheerness and the rest of the UK. All of our partner businesses are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our standards for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What size is the mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of approximately 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are fantastic for a multitude of domestic and commercial tasks. These are the largest skip sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste including garden soil, rubble and gravel.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can in most cases keep a skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You can give a chosen collection day at the time you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will arrange the collection. Usually, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take a little longer over busy times.
Can I fill my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is essential not to overload a skip. You must not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it is very hazardous to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be required to take off the excess waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is dangerous and is not allowed.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge industrial scale skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that produce large volumes of waste.
Do I need to be home when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
What things can I put in the skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The most important thing to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of rubbish which will come from garden work, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most common things which we see in skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, cupboards, sinks, and other household products.
However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. For example, any electrical objects (tumble dryers, monitors or laptops for example), tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore disposing of them has to comply with a completely different process to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.
What size skips can have a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door can make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials such as dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.
What is the cost of skip hire in Sheerness?
The cost of getting a skip in Sheerness will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How long will it take to get a skip in Sheerness?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you 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 area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.
Where will my rubbish be taken to when the skip is collected?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How can I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (such as the street). After that, choose the date you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Sheerness on the day you have selected.
Do you deliver to other areas in Kent?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Sheerness, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Kent. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Sheerness, Tonbridge or Herne Bay, we have got it covered.
If I want a skip on the road in Sheerness, will I need to have a permit?
In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you need to obtain authorisation from your local council in Sheerness, which is called a permit. If required, we would gladly organise this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Electric powered products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products have to be segregated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
