Skip hire FAQs

Here are a few frequently asked questions we receive regarding hiring a skip.

Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do skips come in?

Skips are most commonly named and categorized by the number of cubic yards of waste they can contain. The smallest skips can go as low as 2 cubic yards while the biggest skips can reach capacities of 40 yards.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The standard skip hire period has a maximum hire time of 14 days. Be careful as this is not always the case. If for example, your skip is placed on the road with the permissions of a skip permit, your hire period may be shorter.

Are there additional costs?

Placing a skip in the road or in a parking bag will require a skip permit and/or a parking suspension, both of which will add extra costs. If the delivery or collections is blocked by something like a parked car for example, this would incur a wasted journey fee. If you overfill your skip it may be to dangerous to collect which would also incur a fee. If you put prohibited items into your skip, such as tins full of paint,fridges,upholstered furniture and sofas, this can lead to an additional charge.

What cannot go in a skip?

Unless previously agreed and with the use of a specialist skip you must avoid filling your skip with: Upholstered Furniture, sofas, food waste, hazardous waste, white goods, large electrical items, fluorescent tubes, chemicals and solvents, plasterboard and gypsum. Be wary when using skips that are 8 cubic yards in capacity and over when you want to get rid of heavy and dense waste. Skips have a weight limit so if you’re filling a large skip with heavy items like bricks, it become all to easy to accidently exceed your weight limit.

How do I pay for my skip?

As long as you don’t incur any extra charges by putting prohibited items such as chemicals in your skip, the only payment you’ll make is at the point of purchase. Our booking process has been streamlined to ensure it’s a seamless and quick experience for all of our customers.

What days do you collect on?

Our usual collection days throughout the week range from Monday to Saturday. This varies from location to location with Saturday being one that may not always be available.
