Crosby Skip Hire FAQs
What skip sizes will have a drop door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop-down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is provided.
What size skips can you supply?
Skips come in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic projects.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good option for garden clearances and household refurbishment jobs.
When you have a more substantial waste disposal task to handle, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, such as soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen units.
We also provide 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the side?
Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it unsafe to transport, and you may have to empty any items above the level load mark. This also means you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to order the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Crosby?
The cost of getting a skip in Crosby will depend on the size of skip you require. The least expensive skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic products such as old televisions, freezers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Crosby?
This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for building work. There are usually two different skip sizes that may 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 dispose of substantial quantities of construction and demolition waste, such as earth, concrete and bricks.
Although they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other domestic and commercial waste disposal tasks.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport large amounts of waste materials. Primarily, these skips are used for commercial applications. However, household customers may also use them. You have to consider the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they must only be hired for light-weight waste such as paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of dirt and stone.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to tackle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
Do you deliver to other areas in Merseyside?
Indeed, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout Merseyside, such as Crosby, Maghull, West Kirby and Liverpool. So regardless of where you need a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How do you hire a skip online?

After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
Usually, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.
Will a Crosby skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Am I allowed to throw all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that can come from garden projects, building work and house clearances.
Some of the most common things which we find in skips include dirt, wood, tree cuttings, cabinets, toilets, as well as other household items.
There are also some items that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electronic items (fridges, televisions or washing machines for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them has to adhere to an entirely different process to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be in at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is situated precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, when this isn’t feasible, you do not need to worry. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and we will handle everything.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your 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’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery location, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a fee for a wasted journey.
What will happen to the waste?
When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling centre in or local to Crosby where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
