Shoreham-by-Sea Skip Hire FAQs

How soon can you deliver a skip in Shoreham-by-Sea?

We can typically supply skips to Shoreham-by-Sea the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking platform provides you with various delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Do I need to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.

However, when this isn’t possible, you don’t have to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

If you have a company in Shoreham-by-Sea and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers available.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, as opposed to normal skips, that are picked up using chains.

How do I hire a skip in Shoreham-by-Sea?

Hiring a skip in Shoreham-by-Sea with us is incredibly easy. Select the skip size you need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to get your skip delivered.

Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods such as tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.

What are the different skip sizes to pick from?

This site offers a whole range of skip sizes to residential and industrial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various sizes offered, with a rough guide to the amount of rubbish each skip can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I fill up the skip higher than the level load mark?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you may have to empty any materials over the level load line. This means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or any other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to hire the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We would be pleased to help.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Will you deliver skips across West Sussex?

Certainly. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to residential and industrial customers across West Sussex and anywhere else within the UK.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What will happen to the waste?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Shoreham-by-Sea where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we offer a UK-wide waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they meet our high customer service and environmental requirements.

What kinds of rubbish can you dispose of in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish which can result from garden work, building work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical items that we pick up in our skips include dirt, wood, hedge cuttings, cabinets, baths, and other household products.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This can include any electrical objects (refrigerators, monitors and computers for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste, and disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Shoreham-by-Sea?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or house, you will need to get authorisation from the local authority in Shoreham-by-Sea, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this for you, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop door?

Having a skip which has a drop down door makes filling waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty waste like garden soil or concrete, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky objects like household furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, although it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Shoreham-by-Sea?

The cost of getting a skip in Shoreham-by-Sea is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have the skip on the highway, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

What is a builders skip?

The term builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yard skip. The term comes from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are suited to a wide variety of domestic and industrial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes which can be used for hefty builders waste like top soil, stone and gravel.

Other areas covered include Steyning, Hassocks, Petworth, Pulborough, Worthing, Bognor Regis, Selsey and Cuckfield.
