Teddington Skip Hire FAQs
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Teddington, you have various options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them perfect for household clear ups including bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste, so they cannot be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.
For more details about the various sizes offered, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What is the cost of skip hire in Teddington?
Our aim is to provide the most affordable skip hire service in Teddington. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip placed on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added cost of a skip permit.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home on the day it is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.
On the other hand, when this isn’t feasible, you do not have to worry. Just let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will handle everything.
Will a Teddington skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
How do you order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you wish to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). After that, pick the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Teddington on the day you have chosen.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available from skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Will you deliver skips across Greater London?
Yes. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can deliver skips to residential and business customers across Greater London and anywhere else within the UK.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my 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 can include all electrical products such as cookers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
What size is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for businesses that generate large quantities of waste.
What is classed as being a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip means the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two skip sizes which can be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste, such as soil, rubble and stone.
Although branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?
You can put a variety of waste into the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, metal or rubble from a house clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are permitted as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
However, there are a few items that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they may trigger.
You are unable to throw in your fridge freezer, laptop or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous elements in one type or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal waste.
If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent service for this material. Feel free to contact us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Using a skip which has a drop door will make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as garden soil and rubble, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
How long will it take to get a skip in Teddington?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We will typically give a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, as to be on public property (like a street), you need to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
How long can I hire the skip for?
Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
If I need a skip on the road in Teddington, will I need to have a permit?
This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, so we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on private land, you will save some pounds.
What happens to the rubbish?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into the different waste streams, like timber, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I fill the skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will probably be asked to remove any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This means you can not use sheets of timber, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to choose the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.
