WHAT'S THE TYPICAL HIRE PERIOD FOR A SKIP?
Skips are usually hired over a period of one week, although we can obviously be flexible if you need a skip at your site in Cobham for longer. Because we operate as cheap skip hire specialists, our rates stay the same irrespective of whether you need a unit for a single day or over the entire duration of the agreed hire period of one week.
HOW MUCH NOTICE MUST I PROVIDE BEFORE HIRING SKIPS?
Usually, 24 hours of notice is more than enough and even then, we'll still do our best to make a delivery to Cobham on the same day if a skip and sufficient time are both available. Fox & Vixens Skip Hire ask for a similar amount of notice ahead of collecting skips although we'll always do our best to accommodate calls for same-day collections if we can.
I'M NOT SURE OF THE SKIP SIZE I NEED. CAN YOU HELP?
Of course! The best way to judge the right size of skip is to convert the amount of waste you have into standard big bag sizes. You can then cross reference our skip size chart on the Services page of this website. It's better to choose slightly larger skips if you're on the border between two as this nearly always works out to be less costly in the long run.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET A PERMIT IF I NEED ONE?
Permits are needed if we can't drop off a cheap skip hire unit within the perimeters of your Cobham home or business. Under such circumstance, Fox & Vixens Skip Hire will apply to your local authority for a permit that allows skips to be placed on public highways. This can take 3 to 5 days and permits usually last for between 7 and 14 days in total.
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN'T PUT INTO SKIPS?
There are one or two restrictions you need to consider with our cheap skip hire services but as a rule, we can remove all general and inert waste from your Cobham home or business. Domestic appliances, car tyres, foodstuffs, paint, oil, diesel and petrol are all items that are restricted for use in a skip. We also have to refuse asbestos waste.
