Theydon Bois Skip Hire FAQs

What is the size of a builders skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip hired throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip will be the biggest size which can be used for heavy materials including garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

For anybody who is getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, however these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you require a drop door for your job, tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.

How much waste will fit in a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are fantastic for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Theydon Bois?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you need your skip to be located on land outside of your company or residence, you must receive permission from your local council in Theydon Bois, which is referred to as a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to think about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should know before booking that getting the permit can often take up to two working days.

What kinds of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?

Your skip may be used to dispose of a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and handling numerous items generated from building work, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Some examples of allowed waste types can include:

  • Pieces of furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Concrete
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Most materials are accepted, therefore whether you would like to throw out metals, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The quantity and waste types you put in the skip will vary based on the size skip you ordered. All skips have a maximum weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like get rid of garden soil and bricks, for example, the largest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.

What kind of materials am I not allowed to put in the skip?

There are a few waste materials that you are not permitted to discard in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods contain hazardous materials which may cause damage to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, and so they need to be discarded separately under UK law.

Examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas cylinders
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Can you deliver skips across Essex?

Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management providers, we can deliver skips to residential and industrial customers throughout Essex and elsewhere within the UK.

Am I allowed to fill my skip above the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you may have to remove any contents over the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to order the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be pleased to help.

Do I have to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Other areas covered include Burnham-on-Crouch, Manningtree, Frinton-on-Sea, Grays, Billericay, Canvey Island, Great Dunmow and Coggeshall.
