Crook Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the best solution. What size is known as a mini skip is different from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Cost depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for household tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Crook?

Normally, it is possible to have a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you will need to get approval from the local authority in Crook, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council do charge a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or council property (such as the road). Next, choose the date you would like the skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your skip to Crook on the date you have chosen.

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

It is very important to not overfill your skip, as you risk being asked to take out excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded container can be dangerous, as materials could drop and cause personal injury or damage to other people.

To prevent this problem, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste disposal needs. If your skip is full but you have more waste to dispose of, we are pleased to arrange an exchange.

Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste streams, such as timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

What is the cost of skip hire in Crook?

The cost of hiring a skip in Crook is determined by the size of skip you require. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also increase if you want to have a skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you want it.

The same applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is delivered.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old electronic waste products in your skip. This can include things such as computers, microwaves, dishwashers, refrigerators and tv sets. These objects can’t be thrown in a skip as they can include dangerous materials and components.

Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical goods cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

Typically, you can have the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Crook?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Crook. We utilize a network of both local and national companies to enable us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are fully assessed to make certain they match the high expectations we require with regards to customer service, price and environmental performance.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is hired across the country. Coming in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest option which can be used for hefty waste matter including soil, concrete, stone and gravel.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it to you on a day that suits you. We can normally provide a next day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you must get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to many factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving in a AM or PM slot.

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

If you operate a business in Crook and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great option. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the name suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to standard skips, that are lifted by using chains.

What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

Your skip can be used to discard many different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing numerous materials from building work, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste products include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you need to get rid of metals, plastics, timber or unwanted toys, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and materials you throw into the skip can vary based on which size skip you have ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you wish to get rid of garden soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you would be permitted to use would be the 8 yard skip.

Are there any items that I can’t throw in the skip?

There are a few waste items that you will not be able to throw out in your skip. The reason behind this is that these products contain hazardous materials which may be harmful to the environment. They can even be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK laws.

A few of the products which are restricted include:

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

Do all skips have a drop down door?

The majority of skips can be delivered with a drop door, making them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in big and bulky items, such as pieces of furniture.

Other areas covered include Stockton-on-Tees, Chester-le-Street, Billingham, Durham, Willington, Peterlee, Sedgefield and Consett.
