South Woodham Ferrers Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of all types of waste in the skip?
You can throw a variety of rubbish in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is allowed also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
However, there are things that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risks they may cause.
You cannot get rid of your fridge, television or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. All of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Feel free to email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the best option. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they provide.
The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic jobs including modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.
How do I hire a skip?
We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in South Woodham Ferrers. Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of where and when you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to verify the order as soon as your booking is complete!
What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most typical sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are suited to numerous domestic and industrial jobs. These are the biggest skip sizes that you can use for heavy builders waste including dirt, stone and concrete.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for as many as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You can give a preferred collection date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and then we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over hectic periods.
How soon can you deliver a skip to South Woodham Ferrers?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We will typically provide a next day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (such as a highway), you will need to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We offer a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A popular option for bigger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For South Woodham Ferrers companies with a big quantity of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size skips will have a drop down door?
The vast majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you require a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.
Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and bricks, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky items, like pieces of furniture.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to dispose of large volumes of waste. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by domestic customers as well. However, you should have a lot of space since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
Due to the size, roro containers should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in South Woodham Ferrers and the rest of the UK. All of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in South Woodham Ferrers?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need the skip to be situated on land outside of your business or home, you must secure permission from your local council in South Woodham Ferrers, which is called a permit. If required, we will be happy to organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, and you should be aware before placing your order that getting the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in South Woodham Ferrers?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in South Woodham Ferrers, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display the sizes we provide in your location and how much each size costs to hire. If the skip is going on the road or other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
What happens to the waste?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into various waste types, including timber, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Is it ok to load the skip higher than the side?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any contents above the level load line. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you choose the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are not sure which size you need. We would be glad to help.
Do you deliver skips across Essex?
Of course, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas throughout Essex, including South Woodham Ferrers, Canvey Island, Witham and Wivenhoe. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your house. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?
Unfortunately not, since electronic items including old TVs, fridges, laptops and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly way.
