Sutton Skip Hire FAQs
Do I have to be there when the skip is delivered?
You don’t really need to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the driver can be given full access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, if you can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Sutton, you have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them perfect for house clear ups involving large objects such as furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they can’t be hired to dispose of garden soil or stone.
For additional details about the various skip sizes offered, including dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electrical products like old TVs, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco-friendly manner.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to obtaining a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Will you deliver skips across Greater London?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Sutton, Palmers Green, Welling, New Addington or another area in Greater London, we are able to help.
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The term builders skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are fantastic for numerous types of household and business projects. These are the largest sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste such as dirt, rubble and gravel.
What types of rubbish can you put in a skip?
Prior to hiring your skip, it is essential to make sure that the sort of waste materials you want to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you could throw in a skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You can also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, like timber, top soil, rubble, metals and gravel.
Some examples of prohibited items include things like electrical items, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore need to be disposed of separately from any general waste.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container used to transport significant volumes of waste. Predominantly, these type of skips are used for commercial applications. However, residential customers may also order them. You have to look at the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be hired for light materials like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and hardcore.
Will a Sutton skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Sutton and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are verified and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it okay to load up the skip above level load line?
It is important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excess waste prior to it being picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded bin is dangerous, as rubbish could fall and cause injury or damage to others.
To prevent this situation, please be sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have further waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Am I able to have a skip with a drop down door?
Generally, nearly all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you require a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, because they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
If I would like a skip on the road in Sutton, will I need to have a permit?
If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. When you are doing a domestic project, then the driveway will 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 option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or other public property in Sutton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Sutton?
This is determined by the size you want and whether you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.
