Ambleside Skip Hire FAQs

How long can I hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

How much will skip hire in Ambleside cost?

This is determined by the skip size you need and if you will need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest choice. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

Will a Ambleside skip hire company deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We supply a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip perfect for modest DIY jobs and household clearances. A popular choice for bigger projects, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Ambleside businesses with a big quantity of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

You must not fill up your skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe and secure to move, and you can be asked to take off any excess rubbish before it can be picked up.

If I require a skip on the road in Ambleside, will I need to get a permit?

Generally, it is possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you will need to get approval from the local council in Ambleside, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, like soil, paper, hardcore and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is ideal for most building tasks, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest size which you can use for heavy waste materials including dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.

What can I put in the skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about our service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish that can result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Some of the most common things which we see in skips include soil, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, baths, and various other household items.

However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electronic objects (fridges and freezers, monitors or washing machines for example), tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must follow a completely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

Can I get a skip that has a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door will make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste materials like garden soil and hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky objects such as household furniture easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to provide this.

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the road). Then, pick the date you would like your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Ambleside on the day you have chosen.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Ambleside?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can typically give a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, since to be on public property (like a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of many factors that may impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

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

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods have to be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including cookers, monitors, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

Do I have to be home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be in at the time it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is placed precisely where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.

Having said that, if that isn’t possible, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Do you deliver skips across Cumbria?

Absolutely. We supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can deliver skips to household and business customers across Cumbria and elsewhere in the UK.

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for smaller commercial jobs.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste.

Other areas covered include Sedbergh, Whitehaven, Ulverston, Workington, Egremont, Dalton-in-Furness, Barrow-in-Furness and Silloth.
