Frequently asked questions

There are certain questions that crop up quite regularly so we have tried to cover these below. Feel free to call us with any questions or concerns and we will be happy to help.

I have a small or tight driveway. Can I still hire a skip from Ringwood and Fordingbridge Skip Hire?
We have various smaller sized skips and vehicles that may be suitable however we are also licensed to leave skips safely on a public highway. Alternatively, why not hire our Grab ‘n’ Go lorry. It’s easy and more versatile for smaller clearance work.

What can’t I put in the skip?
Due to government regulations the following items are NOT to be disposed of in a skip
• No Fires
• Tyres
• Paints
• Oils
• Chemicals
• TV’s
• Gas Bottles
• Fridge / Freezers
• Plaster Board
• Asbestos
• Needles

Do you deliver skips on a Saturday?
Ringwood and Fordingbridge Skip Hire are open on a Saturday until 1pm.

If I phone to order a skip can I have it the same day?
Ringwood and Fordingbridge Skip Hire can deliver your skip the same day of your call. Depending on the time of your call.

Can I pay by credit card?
We accept all types of credit and debit cards.

Will you do a cheaper rate for segregated waste?
We can do a lower rate for your waste if it is all the same material. For instance all soil or all rubble. This incurs less time for us at the transfer station therefore we can pass on the savings to you!

What is a waste transfer station?
Our fully installed Waste Transfer Station is where we take all of your waste. This is then mechanically and manually segregated into reusable items ready for recycling.

Can Ringwood and Fordingbridge Skip Hire deliver and collect the same day?
Yes we can deliver and collect on the same day. However, it would pay to book your collection in advance, directly with the office.

Can the skip be left on the road?
Yes, we are licensed to leave skips safely on a public highway although we will need to apply for a separate license from the local council. This can take up to a week for approval.

How long can I have a skip for?
We allow anything from 1 day to 2 weeks hire which is flexible. Contract hire can also be arranged.

Do you provide a wait and load service?
Yes, we can wait while the skip is being loaded, this is particularly useful in areas where skips are not allowed to be left overnight. In areas where access is tight, skips are not allowed on the highway.

Can we tip directly at your Recycling Centre?
Yes, we can accept your waste directly at our recycling centre in Fordingbridge however you must have a waste carriers license or a valid utility bill to do so.

Can we wheel a wheel barrow straight into your skips?
Yes, we have what's called a door drop skip which will allow access straight through the front of the skip using a wheel barrow or by foot.
