Skip FAQs

Take a look at our frequently asked questions for the information you need.

  • Which Skip Should I Order?

    Please see our skip sizes and read all the details. If you are still unsure, please call a member of our team on 020 3151 2592 for further advice.

  • How Long Can I Hire a Skip for?

    We do not put a time limit on our skip hire, as long as the licence is in date.

  • How Do I Pay for My Skip Hire?

    You can pay by credit/debit card over the phone or via cheque or cash.

  • How Much Notice Do I Need to Give for a Collection/Delivery?

    If the skip will be off the road, we need a minimum of 24 hours' notice (on the road). If the
    skip shall be on the road, we need a minimum of 7 days' notice in order to obtain the
    necessary licence.

  • What Are the Access Requirements for a Skip?

    Please make sure the lorry will have at least a distance of 2.5m width. The customer is
    responsible for taking any vehicle off the road and for the protection of their driveway.

  • When Does a Skip Need a Licence?

    When a skip is parked on a public highway (i.e. not on private property) you will need a
    licence from your local council. We organise this for you but please bear in mind that the
    permits vary in price, length, and processing time. Please call for further information.

  • What Can I Not Put in a Skip?

    Asbestos, fridges, freezers, batteries, and tyres cannot be loaded onto the skip. If you are
    disposing of potentially hazardous material, please call us on 020 3151 2592.
