Winchester Skip Hire FAQs

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Winchester?

This depends on the size you will need and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Winchester, you have multiple options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are well suited for house clearances including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to get rid of soil or rubble.

For further details about the various skip sizes offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Do all skips have a drop down door?

The majority of containers can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and then we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load rubbish into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and concrete, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The normal hire time frame will be two weeks from the date of delivery. However, at the time you book the skip, you can provide a pick up date that is perfect 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 collect it as quickly as possible.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, the waste will be taken to a local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

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

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a household task, then your drive will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or other public property in Winchester. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical items like washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Winchester?

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our customers in Winchester and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they match our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Can you deliver to other areas in Hampshire?

In addition to delivering skips and containers to Winchester, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Hampshire. Through a network of local and national skip companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering in Winchester, Fordingbridge or Eastleigh, we have got it covered.

What can I put in the skip?

This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous kinds of waste that may come from garden work, building work and property clearances.

Some of the most common things which we pick up in our skips include dirt, timber, bush trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various other household items.

There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electronic products (fridges and freezers, monitors and cookers for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then have to remove any rubbish above the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or any other item, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure you choose the correct size of skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are unsure which size you require. We will be happy to help.

How quickly can you deliver a skip to Winchester?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can usually give you a next day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a highway), you will need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

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

No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver your skip. So long as we are able to gain access to the place you want it located, we will manage it all.

In case you are not likely to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you may prefer the skip to be located at a particular part of the property. Or you might need to ensure the skip does not block entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?

When your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the various waste materials, like wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip ordered throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest size that you can use for heavy materials including soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge volumes of waste materials. Generally, these type of skips are used for industrial purposes. Having said that, household clients can also use them. You should consider the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of dirt and concrete.

Other areas covered include Fordingbridge, Eastleigh, Petersfield, Andover, New Milton, Southampton, Gosport and Farnborough.
