Southwick Skip Hire FAQs
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household tasks.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant waste disposal job to tackle, the builder’s skip may be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label suggests, these are the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as clay and stone. But they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.
We can also provide 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most typical sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are suited to numerous household and business projects. They are the biggest sizes which can be used for weighty builders waste such as dirt, rubble and concrete.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Southwick?
Normally, it is possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you have got to have consent from the local council in Southwick, which is called a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
Will the skip come with a drop down door?
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.
Will a Southwick skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Southwick and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to ensure they match our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. In some cases, we will even give you a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the online order process.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive container that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These containers are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential customers as well. However, you will require a good amount of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger than the average skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roro containers can only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a range of waste streams, which includes wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Is it okay to load up my skip higher than the top?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being required to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as transporting an overloaded bin is unsafe, as objects could fall and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please ensure that you order a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What sort of waste can you throw in a skip?
You can put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This can include timber, tile, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is allowed as well. Units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are some items that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risk they may cause.
You are unable to get rid of your fridge, laptop or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous components in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from your general rubbish.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to organise an independent service for this waste. Feel free to email us for more information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How long can I hire a skip for?
Our regular hire term will be 14 days from your delivery date. However, when you order the skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We can usually complete collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not always be possible during busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects have to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods like cookers, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hairdryers.

Do you deliver to other areas in West Sussex?
We offer a UK wide skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Southwick, Hassocks, Bognor Regis, Horsham or any other area in West Sussex, we can assist.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers anything to your house. That allows you to ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.
The same goes for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Southwick?
Our aim is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Southwick. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip situated on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
What is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip could 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 rubbish disposal choice to handle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
