Ordering your Skip?
Before ordering please read this page fully along with our Terms & Conditions.
Select the Book Online page, then select your chosen skip size by clicking one of the options shown.
Chose your area from the drop down box, then add the quantity you would like. Make sure you double check your selection by scrolling down the page to the description details. If you are happy with your selection press add to basket.
From here you can view your basket to again double check you have ordered the correct skip for your project then press the ‘Proceed to checkout’ button to be transferred to the checkout page.
Complete your personal and delivery details, along with any special instructions for our delivery driver. eg. put skip on driveway in front of red garage door.
Double check your order details and price then click the ‘Place order now’ button. You will now be transferred off site to the PayPal’ secure internet payment facility to make your payment. If you do not have a PayPal account you can pay by credit or debit card if you wish.
Once payment is accepted you have successfully placed and paid for your skip order.
You should then get a return email confirming payment and order details.
Expect your skip to be delivered within two working days.
You will then only be contacted by EMS if there are any issues with your order requirements.
How do I arrange collection?
When ordering a skip we ask that you indicate how long (approximately) you require the skip to be on site. If no time limit is indicated, we will automatically collect the skips 15 days from the delivery date. Alternatively you can enter a pre-booked collection date. If you have not pre-booked a collection date and the skip is ready for collection before 15 days, return to our website to arrange collection/re-order a new skip or call our office on 01959 534079.
What size do I need?
Take a look at our skip sizes page as this will give you a better indication of what you might need.
We give the measurements in both feet and metres to make life easier for you. Be realistic when you decide about how much waste that you want to dispose of as it is cheaper to get one big one rather than have to order a second!
Please note that you must not overfill the skip. ALL skips must be level loaded so they can be legally transported on the road.
For larger waste collections please call the office for further information.
Where can the skips be placed?
Most customers have their skip placed on their driveway or private land but if this is not possible you can legally apply have the skip placed on the public highway. Skips placed on a public road must have a Highway Permit from the local Council Authority and must have the correct signage and lights. If you think you might need a permit please contact your local Council for further information. Or we are happy to offer advice if you call the office.
We can not deliver the skip before the permit has been granted.
What access do I need to provide?
All of our vehicles delivering to your property are LGV’s and therefore very large.
Please ensure that there is sufficient access on to your property and remember to add any special delivery details on the booking form.
If you are unsure then please contact us.
What can I put in my skip?
Skips are for general and inert waste only, no Fridges, no TV’s or monitors. No tyres or hazardous waste which includes paints, solvents, liquids or asbestos.
If you would like further advice on this please give the office a call.
