Tenterden Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

No, you don’t have to be at home when we are delivering the skip. So long as we can access where you want it located, we are able to manage everything.

If you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you may want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your drive. Or you might need to make sure the skip does not block access to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions are passed on to the delivery driver.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge container that can be used to get rid of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are predominantly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients also. Having said that, you need plenty of room as these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, roro containers should only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.

What size skips do you deliver?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label implies, they are the most frequent sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Do I need approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Tenterden?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you some money.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.

Will a skip hire company from Tenterden deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Tenterden. We work with a network of both local and national providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to be sure they satisfy the high standards we require in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Having a skip which has a drop door can make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste such as soil or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up large bulky objects like household furniture much easier also.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Tenterden?

The price of hiring a skip in Tenterden will depend on the size of skip you require. The cheapest skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have the skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Can I fill up my skip above the top?

You should not fill up the skip beyond the level load mark. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not secure to move, and you could be asked to remove the extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most often hired for building jobs. There are generally two skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of substantial amounts of building and demolition materials, like garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal jobs.

How can I order a skip online?

You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip delivered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the actual cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The normal hire time frame will be 14 days from the date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can let us know a pick up date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

What sort of waste am I allowed to throw in a skip?

You are allowed to throw a variety of waste into the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in your skip.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risk they may cause.

You cannot throw out your fridge freezer, computer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal waste.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Please email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, like soil, paper, stone and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old electrical waste items in your skip. This includes things like laptops or computers, hobs, washing machines, freezers and televisions. Electrical items can’t be thrown in a skip because they can have hazardous materials and components.
