"Preparing for a skip"
Letting us know in advance will help us to plan for your delivery and avoid disruptions.
Make sure that there’s a clear space for us to safely and carefully deliver your skip. Please mention any potential obstructions such as cars, bridges, gates, phone wires or something similar when booking. Maybe telling your neighbour about your skip hire plans, if you share a driveway. Be aware that you are not to place chemicals, Vehicle tyres, asbestos, paint, gas bottles and other hazardous waste into (your) skip when hired.
"How long is the hire for the skip?"
Our skips can be hired up to 7 days maximum unless told. Please give us 48hrs notice for collection. If there is a longer (HIRE) time required and we are not notified at all within (24HRS) and we arrive to collect as scheduled and the skip is empty or not ready to collect unfortunately if the skip is not taken within 5 minutes of arrival or if we have to leave and return there is a extra charge of £55 but you can keep the skip for an extra 48hrs. All skips are (HIRED) and there for will be collected straight away depending on how busy we are. Our operating hours are from - 7AM - 17:00 - Monday - friday and 8am - 11am Saturdays.
"Do I need a permit to hire a skip?"
(WE DONT SUPPLY SKIP HIRE FOR THIS USE)
"What does the price include?"
The price quote includes the hire of the skip or skip bag up to the days required, delivery and collection. what you are told is the final price unless its over the hire period, fires or the skip is damaged in anyway.
We cannot be held responsible for any kind of damage to your surface whilst on your property
If you have any questions please get in touch with us.
"What can I put in my skip?"
Skips are for general house hold waste, wood, metal and builders waste, all electricals, soil, hardcore, and garden waste. We take all types of vehicle batterys free of charge - Please let us know if there are batterys that need to be taken as a driver needs to place these on the lorry separately. Please note that we can only take 2 yards of soil away at a time.
If the larger skips are full off soil-hardcore we will ask for this to be removed to the 2 yards only due to weight limits and there will be an addital charge to have to return to collect the skip at another time on collection - £55
Clean hardcore can be taken away alot cheaper along with clean wood, bushes, green waste ect.
We do not accept hazardous waste which includes paints, solvents, oil or asbestos, Anymore then two full sheets of plasterboard there is an additional charge please contact us regarding this. Please note if any hidden items collected the customer will be notified and invoiced the additional charges if not acceptable. No gas bottles, No Vehicle tyres, No fridge-freezers - Your local council will recycle these at a cheaper price then skip hire companys. Mattresses - £25.
"What if there isnt a skip big enough?"
In the event that we cannot supply a skip large enough we will recommend a company we use for this. we can also arrange a grab for your waste, but we do supply two skips at larger sizes upon request (see the skip sizes page).
"How high can I fill the skip?"
All skips must be Level Loaded and not loaded above the sides of the skip, if we feel it may be unsafe to transport you may have to remove some items to make it level.
"How do I make Payment?"
Generally, skips must be paid for by phone - online - cash to a driver or bank transfer payment if no one is home.
"IF NO PAYMENT HAS BEEN RECEIVED FOR AN ORDER"
THE WASTE IF ANY IN THE SKIPS WILL BE EMPTIED EXACTLY WHERE THE SKIP WAS PLACED!
