Adlington Skip Hire FAQs

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Adlington?

Usually, it will be possible to get your skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must get permission from your local authority in Adlington, which is called a skip permit. We can order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, and it can sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we will do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the skip, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like furniture.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip available from skip firms and is good for smaller DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some firms offer a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be used to dispose of heavy building waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.

A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the loft, these big skips are often the most cost-effective choice available.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

No, you must only load your skip up to the level load line. Stacking waste up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be told to get rid of the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and could also make it overweight.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Adlington?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (like the street). After that, choose the date you would like your skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Adlington on the date you have selected.

What happens to the waste when the skip is picked up?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a variety of waste types, which includes wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can usually give a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a street), you will need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to tell you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

What is the cost of skip hire in Adlington?

Our goal is to provide you with the cheapest skip hire service in Adlington. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the road or any other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

If you operate a business in Adlington and need to dispose of large quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a great choice. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the label suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are picked up using chains.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, in the event you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Adlington?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Adlington. We work with a network of both local and nationwide companies to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These firms are thoroughly vetted to make sure they satisfy the high expectations we require with regards to service, price and environmental performance.

Am I allowed to throw all sorts of waste in a skip?

Before getting a skip, you must ensure that the sort of rubbish you wish to dispose of is allowed to go in the skip. Some items and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

A few examples of waste types it is possible to put in a skip include home goods like pieces of furniture, tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You can also use a skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, including wood, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Examples of forbidden items include electronic items, tyres, paint, chemical substances, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently have to be disposed of separately from your general waste.

Will you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to household and industrial customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else within the UK.

Am I able to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered items like televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore cannot be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric items need to be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly way.
