Tooting Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do skips come in?
We are able to provide a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A common option for larger tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.
For Tooting firms with a big volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid not, since electronic items including old televisions, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly fashion.

We have developed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we can supply in Tooting. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide us with the details of when and where you need your skip delivered. You can then make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm the order as soon as your booking is complete!
What is classed as being a builders skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard weighty building and demolition materials such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the attic, these big skips are usually the most cost-effective choice available.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY work and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
How much will skip hire in Tooting cost?
To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Tooting, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to order. If the skip will be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.
Will a Tooting skip hire company deliver my skip?
We use a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Tooting and the rest of the country. Our partner skip companies are approved and tested to make sure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Is it okay to load up my skip higher than level load line?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up over this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be asked to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is delivered, however it can help. Being in when the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver can be given complete access and that your skip can be located precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Tooting?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit when your skip is on your private property, like a drive or on your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
When you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Tooting where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I able to get a skip with a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop door will make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste such as garden soil and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading up big bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier also.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this can sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for industrial purposes. Having said that, residential clients can also use them. You have to think about the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be utilised for lightweight materials including plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of soil and concrete.
What sort of rubbish can I throw in a skip?
You may use a skip to get rid of lots of different waste materials. We are used to picking up and processing numerous materials produced from construction jobs, garden projects and house clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Home furniture
- Garden cuttings
- Garden soil
- Bathroom sinks
- Cabinets and units
Most waste materials are generally accepted, and therefore whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or fabric, we can normally take your rubbish away.
The quantity and materials you discard in your skip may vary based on the size skip you hired. Skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like dispose of top soil and rubble, as an example, the largest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.
What sort of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are some waste materials that you will not be permitted to dispose of in your skip. The main reason for this is that some products incorporate hazardous components which may cause damage to the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.
Examples of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
When will the skip be delivered to me?
Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We will usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a street), you must obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.
Due to many factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
