Church Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home when it is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip is located exactly where you need it. This also is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, when this isn’t achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

Will the skip have a drop down door?

Generally speaking, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily useful when choosing a big builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Can you deliver skips across Lancashire?

Sure, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skip sizes to areas throughout Lancashire, including Church, Burnley, Chorley and Barrowford. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can usually hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of giving a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always try to be there as quickly as possible.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Church and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire companies are approved and tested to make sure they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

What things can I put in my skip?

This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. The main thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that will result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.

Among the most typical items that we see in skips include soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cupboards, sinks, and various household items.

There are also some materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This consists of any electrical items (fridges, TVs and washing machines for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them has to comply with an entirely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

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

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general waste to be reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered items including cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.

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

In most cases, it will be possible to get the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you need to get approval from the local authority in Church, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for your license, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.

How do you order a skip online?

We have built our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. Step one is to enter your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Church. Select the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you would like the skip to be delivered. You then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send you an email to confirm the order as soon as your booking is done!

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

The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large skip that can be used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be used by domestic customers too. Having said that, you will need a lot of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, RORO skips should only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than the level load line?

You must not load a skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip is not safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be picked up.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can relate to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name comes from the fact that they are the most common sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suitable for numerous types of household and business projects. They are the largest skip sizes which you can use for hefty builders waste like garden soil, stone and bricks.

How long does it take to get a skip in Church?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted trip.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies will provide a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Where does my rubbish be taken to when the skip is picked up?

The items in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste materials, including soil, cardboard, hardcore and wood. Processing the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the amount of waste that ends up in landfill.
