Cleveleys Skip Hire FAQs
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips that are used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that generate large amounts of waste.
Will a skip hire company from Cleveleys deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire businesses to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I have finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Cleveleys where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
You can put a variety of waste into the skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, metal or concrete from a property clearance. Tree and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be discarded in the skip.
There are, however, some items that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environmental or health risk they may cause.
You can not throw out your fridge, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from normal waste.
Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate service for this waste. Feel free to email for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How do you order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or local authority property (such as the street). Next, pick the day you want the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Cleveleys on the date you have selected.
What is classed as a builders skip?
The builder’s skip is the most frequent skip used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and construction tasks, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest size which can be used for heavy waste materials such as dirt, concrete, stone and gravel.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You will need to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted trip.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to handle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Which size skips will have a drop door?
Having a skip with a drop door helps make loading waste into it a lot easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like garden soil or rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make disposing of large bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this can sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the side?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to move, and you will then have to empty any materials over the level load mark. This also means that you cannot use sheets of timber, doors or some other object, as this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please be sure to hire the correct sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Cleveleys?
The price of hiring a skip in Cleveleys will depend on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this will give you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you need some more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Electronic products including TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electric powered products need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Do you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to residential and industrial customers throughout Lancashire and anywhere else in the UK.
Do I have to be home whenever the skip will be delivered?
You don’t need to be at your property when your skip will be delivered, but it does help. Being there when the skip arrives means that you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that the skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is being hired to company property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, for those who can’t be around at the time of delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you book your order, and then we will organise everything from there.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Cleveleys?
If at all possible, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a residential task, then the drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Cleveleys. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Other areas covered include Kirkham, Skelmersdale, Carnforth, Accrington, Preston, Lytham St Anne’s, Leyland and Garstang.
