What is wait & load?

Wait & load is an alternative service to skip hire and, whilst not as well-known, it’s often a more convenient service than skip hire. We find many people that call us looking for skip hire, would get a more cost efficient and convenient service to fit their requirements with wait & load.

When you book a wait & load service with us, your friendly Skip It team will arrange a time to meet you on-site. We offer 2-hour slots as part of our service, so there’s no extra costs involved in knowing exactly when we’ll be there.?

With our specially designed waste collection vehicle, our wait & load teams will arrive and take just about anything except liquid waste (oil, petrol, diesel). Oh and we handle everything too – you won’t have to lift a finger.

It certainly is an efficient service, but how does that reflect in the price?

When it comes to waste clearance pricing, a wait & load service could, in fact, be a much cheaper option than a skip. These vehicles can hold as much (or as little) waste as you need, and you only pay for what we take – there’s no risk of wasting money on a skip that’s only half full.

Waste collection pricing with wait & load

The key factor in determining waste collection pricing is the amount of waste you need removing.

At Skip It, we use two different sized vehicles as part of our wait & load service. The smaller is a 14-yard Transit and the larger is an 18-yard 7.5-tonne vehicle.

There are a different set of prices for each vehicle size and these are determined by the fraction of space your waste fills in the vehicle. Whether you have a full load, a ¾ load, a ½ load or ¼ load, you’ll only pay for the space you use.

Perhaps you just want us to pick up a single bulky item, such as a washing machine or dishwasher. Not a problem. There’s an option for this within our wait & load service too.

Another aspect of the service that dictates the price is location. At Skip It, we cover all of London and categorise areas into 3 separate zones.

Much of the West is covered in zone 1, including the North West and South West. Zone 2 is primarily central London, and zone 3 covers the East, including the North East and South East.

(To find out exactly which zone your area sits in, check our online enquiry form and click ‘What zone am I?’ underneath the map).

Skip It’s wait & load service

What sets Skip It apart from other waste disposal companies is that we really go the extra mile to take care of the environment and our customers.

We recycle absolutely everything we can and take full responsibility for the rubbish we handle. Our aim is to recycle more than 95 per cent of the waste we collect and we follow the Environment Agency’s regulations to help us achieve this and more.
