Below are some of the typical questions we have received relating to our skip hire service.
Southall Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builders skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest containers used to dispose of heavy building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out the garden shed, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.
Can I throw electronic items in my skip?
Electronic products like tv sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic items must be separated from other waste. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
How much does skip hire in Southall cost?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being home when your skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip is positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to a company property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, when you can’t be around at the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Southall, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also means they are great for house tidy ups involving large items such as furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suited to lightweight materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or stone.
For more information regarding the different sizes offered, including proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
What skip sizes have got a door?
The vast majority of skip sizes can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with weighty materials, such as dirt and rubble, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like furniture.
Can you deliver skips across Greater London?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Southall, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Greater London. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Southall, Richmond Upon Thames or Teddington, we have got you covered.
What will happen to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
The contents of the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer station. Here the contents will be segregated by machines and by hand into different waste streams, including metal, cardboard, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
How long can I keep a skip for?
The regular hire term is a fortnight from your delivery date. However, when you book your skip, you can select a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded earlier than expected, tell us, and we will get it removed as quickly as possible.
We can usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste transfer station, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Will a Southall skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Southall. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to allow us to offer our service to domestic and business customers throughout the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly assessed to make certain they meet the high expectations we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.
What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?
You may use a skip to get rid of lots of different waste types. We are used to collecting and handling a wide variety of materials generated from building work, garden projects and property clearances. Some examples of permitted waste types include things like:
- Tree trimmings
- Concrete and bricks
- Bathroom sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many waste types are usually permitted, and therefore whether you wish to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and items you put in your skip will vary depending on which size skip you have ordered. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So to be able to get rid of soil and hardcore, as an example, the largest size container you would be allowed to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Are there any items which I can’t put in the skip?
There are several waste materials which you will not be able to get rid of in the skip. The reason behind this is that some products contain hazardous materials which can harm the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, therefore they must be disposed of separately under UK regulations.
A few of the things that are restricted include:
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
Can I load my skip higher than level load mark?
Unfortunately not. You must only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Loading waste materials up over this line will make it unsafe to move, and you might be told to take off the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we can even provide a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Southall?
Generally, it is possible to have a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you need to have consent from your local authority in Southall, which is called a skip permit. We can organise this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
How can I hire a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Then, choose the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment platform. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Southall on the date you have chosen.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a company in Southall and need to get rid of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container might be a perfect option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the label implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, which are picked up by using chains.
