At Pillory Down Skips Ltd, we have a sizeable number of repeat customers in the Surrey and South West London areas who would never go anywhere else with their waste management needs because we deliver the perfect cheap skip hire service. Operating out of Banstead, we’re a trusted local skip company and one that helps homeowners, businesses and organisations in nearby Reigate to dispose of their waste in a safe, sustainable and ethical manner.

Those who call us to hire a skip for the first time sometimes make mistakes that our more frequent customers already know how to avoid. Here, Pillory Down Skips Ltd looks at some of the things you need to avoid when using a skip hire service, and at what new users in the Reigate area should never put into our skips or containers

Never Overload a Skip

While it’s fine to load skips to the brim with light waste, don’t overfill past the level load markings and never exceed the maximum weight capacity. Our skip company still has to transport the unit, and your materials, back to our yard in Banstead for screening and recycling. We cannot transport overloaded units and you may need to hire a skip at added cost to cope with the surplus.

We want cheap skip hire to mean cheap skip hire, and we take no pleasure in refusing loads from our Reigate customers when they exceed permitted levels or weight limits.

Even if you do need to hire a second unit, we have some of the most affordable skip prices in Surrey and South West London.

Permitted Materials

Skip hire is very much about safe and ethical waste management. While we permit most types of household and commercial material into our skips, some waste has specific recycling needs or could pose a risk to those who handle it after disposal. Our skip company recommends that you make alternative arrangements for the removal of electrical items, car tyres, oils, paints and solvents.

If you want to hire a skip for delivery to an address in Reigate and need to know more about what we can or can’t allow inside our containers, please ask to see a permitted item list. We cannot handle any materials that contain asbestos.

Roadside Skip Positioning

Most customers using our cheap skip hire services have their units placed on a driveway or on land surrounding their workspace. Access difficulties and space limitations make this impossible on some deliveries, but you can still hire a skip to manage your waste and have it positioned on a public road. To do this, you must have a permit that grants permission to leave skips on the roadside for a set time period.

Our skip company has regular communications with the local authority for Reigate and can apply for permits on your behalf if you would prefer to take this option. Please be aware that local authorities can fine users and skip hire companies who have units placed on the roadside without a permit arranged.
