Staines-upon-Thames Skip Hire FAQs
How much will skip hire in Staines-upon-Thames cost?
The price of getting a skip in Staines-upon-Thames depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you require a larger skip, like an 8 yd builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Staines-upon-Thames?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). After that, pick the date you need your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Staines-upon-Thames on the day you have chosen.
If I require a skip on the road in Staines-upon-Thames, will I need a permit?
If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic project, then the driveway is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to get a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Staines-upon-Thames. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
Do you deliver skips across Surrey?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Staines-upon-Thames, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Surrey. Through a network of regional and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Staines-upon-Thames, West Byfleet or Warlingham, we have got it covered.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this provides you with plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is primarily helpful when choosing a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t as important for mini skips, because they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
You can fill the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip will depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy building waste including concrete or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
How big is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips that are used primarily within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste materials.
How much waste will the mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the ideal solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for domestic jobs like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery position, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted journey.
Am I allowed to stack up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill up your skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to move, and you might be asked to remove the extra waste before it can be picked up.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic products including tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.
What happens to the waste?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the various waste materials, like timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do I need to be there whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being in when the skip arrives means you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that your skip will be dropped precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to your company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.
Even so, when you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Staines-upon-Thames, you will have various options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household clear ups involving large objects like household furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For more information about the different skip sizes offered, including dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly used for construction jobs. There are typically two skip sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, like earth, concrete and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.
