Shepperton Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Shepperton deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Shepperton and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than level load line?
You should not fill up a skip past the level load mark. When you load it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be collected.
What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?
You are able to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, when you will be using your skip for heavy construction waste such as rubble or dirt, the largest size you could get is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Shepperton?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a drive or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, it will save you some money.
How can I hire a skip in Shepperton?
Ordering a skip in Shepperton through us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about when and where you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We can provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Shepperton businesses which produce a big volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Shepperton?
The price of getting a skip in Shepperton depends on the size of skip you want. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The charge will also be more if you need to have the skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest size offered by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.
Will you deliver skips across Surrey?
We offer a national skip hire and recycling service by using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Shepperton, Weybridge, Haslemere, West Byfleet or another area in Surrey, we can assist.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even offer a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed when going through the order process.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this provides you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get separated into various waste streams, which includes stone, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, as electronic items like old TVs, fridges, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.
What size skips have a drop door?
Having a skip which has a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy materials such as garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
The builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to discard heavy construction materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out your garage, these substantial skips tend to be the most affordable solution available.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you want it.
The same thing goes for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
