Sunbury-on-Thames Skip Hire FAQs
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for construction jobs. There are typically two different sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of large amounts of building and demolition waste materials, like earth, rubble and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available from skip companies and is great for smaller DIY tasks, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Sunbury-on-Thames?
Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Sunbury-on-Thames. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the road or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
What types of waste can I get rid of in a skip?
It is possible to put a variety of waste types into your skip. This includes timber, tile, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted too. Units from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in your skip.
There are, however, some things that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible ecological or health risks they may cause.
You can not throw out your refrigerator, computer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous components in one type or another. They need to be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
Who will deliver my skip?
As we offer a UK-wide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental requirements.
Am I able to put electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old electronic waste products in a skip. This can include such things as computers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and television sets. These objects can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Do you deliver skips across Surrey?
Along with delivering skips to Sunbury-on-Thames, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Surrey. By utilising a network of regional and national waste management companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Sunbury-on-Thames, Egham or Oxted, we have got it covered.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
For anyone who is hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is ideal for disposing of hefty building and construction waste, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop-down door, though these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is provided.
If I want a skip on the road in Sunbury-on-Thames, will I need to have a permit?
Preferably, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are doing a domestic task, then a drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be placed on a road, grass verge or other public property in Sunbury-on-Thames. If this is required, we will request the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How do I order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Then, choose the date you want your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Sunbury-on-Thames on the date you have selected.
Can I fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is very important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excessive waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as objects could drop and result in injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please be sure to order a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some additional waste to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Should I be in when the skip will be delivered?
If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home at the time it is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip will be located exactly where you want it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.
However, if that isn’t possible, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when placing your order, and we will handle the rest.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will in most cases include a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this will provide you with plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us when you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
If you operate a business in Sunbury-on-Thames and wish to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the name implies, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are lifted using chains.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip may be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, they are the most typical sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be hired for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also offer 10-16 yard containers and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into the various waste materials, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
