West Drayton Skip Hire FAQs
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in West Drayton?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you need to get authorisation from the local council in West Drayton, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit will often take up to 2 working days.
Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it delivered, we will manage it all.
In case you are not likely to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you might prefer the skip to be dropped on a particular area of your property. Or you may want to make sure the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, tell us when you place your order, and we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
What types of waste materials can I put in my skip?
You can put a variety of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, tile, metal or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden jobs are permitted also. Dated units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are a few things that you can’t put in a skip because of the possible environmental or health risk they may cause.
You are unable to throw out your refrigerator, printer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. All of these things include hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Feel free to email us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
What is the process of hiring a skip in West Drayton?
We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your address to view all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in West Drayton. Select the best size to meet your requirements and give us the details of when and where you want your skip to be delivered. You then make payment through the secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the transaction once your booking is done!
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into a number of waste streams, such as wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip that is hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option that can be used for hefty waste materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in West Drayton?
The cost of hiring a skip in West Drayton will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also be more if you want to have the skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Nearly all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the bin, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.
Do you use local skip hire companies in West Drayton?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in West Drayton and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even tackle small commercial jobs.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this will provide you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, if you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?
You must not load a skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to take off any extra waste before it can be picked up.
Can you deliver skips across Greater London?
Sure, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas across Greater London, including West Drayton, Walthamstow, Wallington and Kensington. So wherever you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?
No, you cannot throw old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops or computers, cookers, washing machines, freezers and television sets. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can include hazardous materials and components.
Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial size skips used mainly in the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste.
How long will it take to get a skip in West Drayton?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you complete your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.
How many different skip sizes are available?
Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small residential jobs.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a great choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, like soil and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For further info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
