Whitchurch Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being there when your skip is being delivered means that you can ensure the lorry is given full access and that your skip will be positioned precisely where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
Even so, in the event you can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange things from there.
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to handle many tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What will happen to the rubbish?
When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the different waste materials, such as wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This ensures that the maximum amount of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial scale skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that produce large quantities of waste materials.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly hired for building work. There are usually two different sizes which can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of large amounts of construction and demolition materials, such as dirt, rubble and bricks.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for many other domestic and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical products such as old televisions, cookers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly way.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Whitchurch?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you need to secure permission from your local authority in Whitchurch, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
Do you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?
Indeed, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to locations across Hampshire, such as Whitchurch, Bordon, Romsey and Hedge End. So regardless of where you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Who will deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Whitchurch. We make use of a network of both regional and national companies to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to ensure they meet the high standards we demand with regards to service, price and environmental performance.
When will my skip be delivered?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We can usually offer a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.
Due to numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it arriving within a AM or PM slot.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
The normal hire period will be 14 days from the delivery date. However, when you book the skip, you can let us know a collection date that is ideal for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than expected, tell us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. But, it is important to remember that this is not always the case at busier times. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
What size skips have got a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, making them easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you require a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the skip, particularly with heavy materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky items, like household furniture.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular choice for bigger jobs, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.
For Whitchurch businesses which generate a large volume of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How can I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip in Whitchurch through us is very simple. Pick the skip size you want and input a few details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
What types of rubbish can you get rid of in a skip?
You can fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you throw in the skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you will be using a skip for heavy construction wastes like stone or top soil, the biggest size you could hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Is it okay to load up the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to move, and you will then have to empty any contents higher than the level load line. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty of care to make sure that bins aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure to select the correct size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size is best. We would be glad to help.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Whitchurch?
The price of getting a skip in Whitchurch will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the highway, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
