Skip Hire FAQs

Why use Waste King for skip hire services?

Waste King offer the best value and range of skip hire services in the UK! We have a wide range of skip options, from different sizes and uses through to exceptional prices to help you save money.

How much does it cost to hire a skip?

We price very competitively, with skips ranging from as little as £165 for our smallest skip. We have a range of size options, meaning you can get a low cost skip for whatever job you need!

What size skip do I need?

When filling a skip, the load must be level. So, to help you meet this requirement, you should choose a skip with a slightly larger capacity than you think the collected waste will require. We supply a wide range of sizes, so please refer to the table above to see which size would be most appropriate for your needs.

How much can I put into a skip?

skips come in various sizes both for domestic and industrial use. Roughly, one cubic yard is equivalent to one metric tonne (1,000 kilograms) of waste.

  • ‘Mini Skip’ – which will hold two cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to two tonnes (2,000kg) of waste.
  •  ‘Builder’s Skip’ – which will hold six cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to six tonnes (6,000kg) of waste.
  •  ‘Builder’s Skip’ – which will hold eight cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to eight tonnes (8,000kg) of waste.
  •  ‘Maxi Skip’– which will hold 12 cubic yards of materials. So it can hold up to eight tonnes (12,000kg) of waste.

How long do I need to hire my skip for?

When you hire a skip, the longer that the skip is your responsibility, the more money it’ll cost you. So you’ll want to make the whole exercise as short – and cost effective – as possible.

On average, most customers rent a skip for between seven and ten days – although this period can be extended.

How can I book skip hire?

It is easy to get in touch with us: either call us on 0370 343 9990 or email info@wasteking.co.uk to discuss your requirements and receive your obligation free quote.

Do you charge for any additional items in skips?

Prohibited items can incur charges. These include
Hazardous waste
Fridges and aircon units

Are there any hidden costs?

There are no hidden costs as we must communicate the charges to you. The most common charges for skips are listed below:

Over-filled skips ( not level load ) – You are responsible for making sure the skip is level load as you are hiring the skip container. If the skip is overfilled and unsafe to carry to the professional HGV driver may decide he can not remove the skip, and a wasted journey fee can be applied. It is a legal requirement that the load is safe to transport.

Wasted journeys fee – When it is not our error that the skip can not be collected, we charge a fee to cover the time and fuel of the transport. We always try to avoid this as we have rented the skip to another customer, requiring the skip off-hire. The driver may not collect due to the skip being overloaded or the skip is obstructed or blocked.

Skip permits and suspension – if the skip is on the public highway, we will need to apply for the license to place the skip on the road legally. Some areas, especially in cities with parking issues, require you to suspend a parking bay. This is a separate cost to a skip permit and can require an admin fee. We would recommend a man and van service to remove your rubbish as this permit fee can be expensive

What size skip can you deliver?

We deliver many different types of sizes, from open and lockable. We even provide drop-down doors for those heavy materials in some areas. We even supply roll-on roll-off. Skips are identified through cubic yards or the name. The list is below:

2 yard skip Mini
4 yard skip Midi

I originally called up to enquire about a skip. Spoke to a very knowledgeable lady about what I needed and decided on a man with a van service as this was cheaper. Two days later, a man turns up with a big van and clears up all the rubbish on my drive and garage. Professional, polite and highly recommeded.

Angela Williams

This is my first time using WK and I am so pleased that I choose them. I had a friendly conversation to arrange delivery. The skip was delivered on time and placed on my drive to also accommodate my car. Haven't filled it yet but will do very soon.

William Croot

Always quick, efficient and friendly. Had several collections from WK during the renovation of my house. Tightness of access was a problem for skips but not for WK in their van based vehicles. Would recommend without doubt.

Roger Kemp

Great company to do business with, have had three skips from them over the past year. All dropped off and collected on the correct date and very competitively priced. Highly recommended
