Amble Skip Hire FAQs
What size is a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the largest skips used to dispose of weighty construction waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of tasks. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning out the loft space, these large skips are usually the most affordable solution available.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
What happens to the waste in the skip?
The contents of your skip will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station. Here the rubbish will be segregated by machines and also by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
What different sizes do skips come in?
We offer a full range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular option for larger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Amble companies which have a significant quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do I order a skip in Amble?
Ordering a skip in Amble through us is incredibly straightforward. Decide on the skip size you need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Amble?
The price of hiring a skip in Amble depends on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering your skip. As long as we are able to access the place you want it positioned, we will take care of it all.
For those who will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular part of the drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip does not block entry to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, provide the details when ordering, and then we will ensure your instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
If I need a skip on the road in Amble, will I need to get a permit?
This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your business premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.
Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?
Electrical objects including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore should not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric objects must be separated from other rubbish. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
What things can I put in my skip?
It is possible to put a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, tile, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, top soil and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in a skip.
However, there are things that you cannot put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they could cause.
You cannot get rid of your fridge freezer, computer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Please email for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is ideal for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will offer a 3 yard as their smallest container. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop door will make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste like dirt or stone, which can then be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away large bulky items like furniture easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, although this may sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
How long will it take to get a skip in Amble?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted trip.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded skip is hazardous, as materials could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to others.
To prevent this issue, please make sure you hire a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have additional waste to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Can you deliver to other areas in Northumberland?
Yes, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas across Northumberland, including Amble, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Ashington and Cramlington. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These containers are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic clients as well. However, you need a good amount of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger than the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips can only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
Generally, you can have the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
