A & J Skips . . . . . Making Skip Hire Simple

     
  Frequently Asked Questions      
 

Where can the skips be placed?


Skips cannot be placed on the highway without a permit and correct signage and lights. If you

cannot place on private land (remember the grass verge outside your house may not be owned

by you!) we will organise the necessary permit with the relevant local authority.

Do I need permission from the local authority when hiring a skip?


Only if you want the skip to be placed on the road, pavement or verge. The council will charge

a fee for the licence, which varies depending on what local authority you come under.

I need a skip quickly, how long do I have to wait?


We can deliver your skip on the same day as it's ordered or within 24 hours if you require a

permit.

How do I know what size skip I will need?


We will be happy to discuss your requirements and advise you on a solution to suit your specific

needs.

Where can the skip be left?


We will leave your skip in the most convenient location, which might be the driveway or organise

for the skip to go on the road. They can also be at business, office and factory locations. As the

vehicles delivering to your house are LGV's and normally very large, please make sure that

there is sufficient access to allow it in/out safely. If you are unsure, please contact us and we

can provide you with the approximate dimensions required.

Do you offer a service for builders and contractors?


Yes we do, as we are a Licensed and Registered Waste Carrier company.

How long can I keep the skip for?


Without prior agreement the maximum rental period is 10 days. If you think you'll require the skip

for a longer period, please let us know at time of booking, so that we can mutually agree a hire

period. If no agreement is in place we reserve the right to collect the skip from the 11th day

onwards without notice.

How much can I put in the skip?


You must not load the skip higher than a level load as this makes it dangerous to transport.

What can I put in the skip?


Skips are for general and inert waste only. You can't put in florescent tubes, fridges and freezers,

asbestos, paint, aerosols, tarmac, solvents, liquids, batteries. For a full list of things that cannot

be put in a skip please contact us.

Is the rubbish recycled?


The rubbish is taken to a waste transfer station, and recycled wherever possible. We endeavour

to make sure that at least 90% waste will be sent for recycling.

How do I arrange for my skip to be collected?


If you did not specify a collection date when ordering, please contact us to arrange collection.

What geographical areas do you cover?


Skips can normally be delivered within a 10 mile radius from Shepperton but we'll be pleased

to discuss this with you when you get in touch. View map for more details
