South West London Skip Hire FAQs
Can you deliver to other areas in Greater London?
Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations throughout Greater London, including South West London, Northwood, New Malden and Orpington. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we can even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the order process.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The builder’s skip is the most popular skip hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label originates from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest size that can be used for hefty waste materials like dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
No, you must only fill the skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you may be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this can make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
How do you hire a skip in South West London?
We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in South West London. Select the right size to meet your needs and provide us with the details of where and when you would like the skip delivered. You then make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is complete!
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can generally keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection day when making your order.
Alternatively, simply let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It might take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
Which size skips have got a drop door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip that has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with heavy materials, such as dirt and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You are allowed to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, garden soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or dirt, the largest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that is used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients also. However, you will need a lot of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the typical skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and rubble.
Will a skip hire company from South West London deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national skip service, we utilise an extensive network of approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in South West London?
Generally, it is possible to have a skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you will need to get approval from the local council in South West London, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.
Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electrical waste items in your skip. This includes items like computers, cookers, dishwashers, freezers and televisions. Electronic objects can’t be discarded in your skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What skip sizes do you provide?
This site offers a complete variety of skip sizes to residential and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the enormous 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of how much waste each size can hold:

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 nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a range of waste types, including timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be at home when the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be placed exactly where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates limit access.
On the other hand, if that isn’t possible, you don’t need to stress. Simply tell us when making your booking, and we will take care of everything.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are perfect for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and concrete. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple journeys to the local recycling centre.
