Blackpool Skip Hire FAQs

Can I load up the skip higher than level load line?

You should not fill up your skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe to move, and you might be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being picked up.

How do I hire a skip?

We have built our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to type in your address to view the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Blackpool. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send you an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is done!

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Blackpool?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a domestic task, then the drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a street, grass verge or other public property in Blackpool. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted for you. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

When will my skip be delivered?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can typically give you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, as to go on public property (such as a highway), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

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

Am I able to have a skip that has a drop door?

Having a skip that has a drop door will make loading waste into it so much easier. This is especially true with heavy materials such as dirt or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky objects such as household furniture a lot easier also.

Most skips can be provided with a drop door, although 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 best to supply this.

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

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently supplied for building and construction work. There are typically two sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial volumes of building and demolition waste materials, like earth, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Am I allowed to throw away electronic items in the skip?

Electric powered products like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous waste type and so can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects must be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

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

You don’t have to be at your property when your skip is delivered, but it will help. Being there when the skip is due for delivery means you can ensure the lorry driver is given complete access and that your skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is being delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

However, when you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and then we will arrange everything from there.

Will you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?

In addition to delivering skips and containers to Blackpool, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Lancashire. Through a network of local and national skip hire companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Blackpool, Skelmersdale or Kirkham, we have got you covered.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

If you run a business in Blackpool and want to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal containers that are available.

As the label indicates, these containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are lifted by using chains.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The normal hire time frame is a fortnight from your date of delivery. However, at the time you order the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your project will take. So if the skip is fully loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will get it picked up as soon as possible.

Collections will normally be made within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not always be possible at busier times. Once collected, your skip will be transported to a local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

A skip can be hired to get rid of many different types of waste. We are used to picking up and handling numerous materials produced from building work, garden projects and house clearances. Some examples of allowed waste types can include:

  • Household furniture
  • Garden cuttings
  • Soil
  • Rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many waste types will be permitted, so whether you would like to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and waste types you throw in your skip will vary according to the size skip you have hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety. So if you would like get rid of top soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size container you would be permitted to hire would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What sort of items am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are a few materials which you are not allowed to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that some items contain hazardous components which could harm the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately within UK law.

Some examples of the items that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
