Stansted Mountfitchet Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial commercial scale skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that produce large volumes of waste.
Can I get a skip with a drop door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door will make filling waste into it so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of big bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier as well.
Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Stansted Mountfitchet and the rest of the country. Each of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.
What types of rubbish can you throw in a skip?
You can load the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy building wastes like stone or garden soil, the maximum size you would be able to hire is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the order process.
What skip sizes do you offer?
We can offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY projects and house clearances. A popular choice for larger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Stansted Mountfitchet firms with a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
You can usually hire the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection day when making your order.
Otherwise, just tell us when you have finished loading up your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a bit longer to collect your skip during busy times, however we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into various waste types, such as wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
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 frequently hired for construction and demolition work. There are typically two skip sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as dirt, concrete and rock.
Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Am I allowed to throw electronic products in the skip?
No, you cannot put old or unwanted electrical waste items in a skip. This includes items like laptops, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and tv sets. These objects can’t be discarded in the skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
What is the cost of skip hire in Stansted Mountfitchet?
The price of getting a skip in Stansted Mountfitchet is determined by the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Stansted Mountfitchet?
Ordering a skip in Stansted Mountfitchet with us is very easy. Select the skip size you will need and then input a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than the top?
It is important never to overload a skip, as you risk being required to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded container can be hazardous, as materials could drop and cause injuries or damage to others.
To prevent this problem, please be sure you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full and you have more waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to deal with many jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Stansted Mountfitchet?
Normally, it will be possible to have the skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you will need to have permission from your local council in Stansted Mountfitchet, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.
