FAQ

First time hiring a skip? Here are just a few questions you might be thinking yourself – and the answers to put your mind at rest.

If your waste disposal query isn’t covered here, please don’t hesitate to contact Weybridge Skip Hire for further information.

Think sensibly about what you have to dispose of. Remember, one large skip will be more cost effective than eventually having to hire two smaller ones. Skips must be level loaded for safety reasons on the road. Not all skip sizes cope with clay and muck waste as the vehicle may not transport it legally. We cannot accept liability for any damage caused whilst off the public highway. Take a look at our skip sizes here.

Not on the highway without a permit and correct signage and lights. We can, where possible, arrange a skip permit for you, but in some cases, you may have to apply yourself, depending on your borough’s requirements.

Skips can only be placed on private property and please remember that the grass verge outside your house may not be your property. However, we can help to organise these matters for you, or organise a wait and load service.

The vehicles that will deliver your skip are large. Please make sure that they can get in and out of your location, safely. If you are in doubt, please contact us and we will give you the approximate dimensions required.

Only general and inert waste are to be placed in skips. Fridges, freezers, plasterboard, hazardous waste, tyres, including paints, solvents, liquids or asbestos are NOT ACCEPTABLE. We can provide you with a list of items that cannot be placed in your skip.

We can however accommodate the disposal of some of the items listed above by prior special arrangement. Please call us for further information on this.

Standard hire is for two weeks. Depending on availability, we can be more flexible on this time period. The price is the same for a day as it is for two weeks.

Normally 24 hours for deliveries, collections and exchanges.

Our skips are taken to a fully-licensed waste transfer station for recycling. Most items from skip waste are recovered and recycled where possible. Everything else is processed  and used as fuel at power stations.

This minimises the amount of waste that goes to landfill. Some waste is also turned into high-quality aggregates.

Non Account Holders: We only accept payment by credit/debit card in advance over the telephone or online. We accept all major credit and debit cards, with the exception of AMEX. Payment is taken prior to the start of the hire. We do not accept cheques.

Account Holders: If you wish to hire on a regular basis with up to 30 days credit please contact us regarding details for opening an account.
