What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple journeys to your local recycling centre.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can usually supply skips to Dereham the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking platform will give you a number of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or want to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can typically keep the skip for up to two weeks from the delivery date. It is possible to give a preferred pick up date when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and then we will organise the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer during hectic periods.
Will you deliver skips across Norfolk?
Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to supply skips to residential and business customers across Norfolk and elsewhere in the UK.
Will a skip hire company from Dereham deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our customers in Dereham and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip companies are verified and tested to ensure they match our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Dereham?
Our aim is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Dereham. The price you pay will, of course, depend on the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
What size skips can you provide?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Dereham, you have several sizes to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are suitable for house clearances involving bulky objects such as household furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of soil or rubble.
For more information about the different sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Will my skip come with a drop door?
If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste materials, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop down door, though they are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you run a business in Dereham and want to get rid of large volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.
As the name suggests, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, in contrast to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.
What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?
You are able to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you will be using your skip for heavy building waste including concrete or dirt, the maximum size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
What size is a builders skip?
The name builders skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or soil.
A builders skip is great for a variety of projects. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out the shed, these big skips are often the most affordable solution available.
Am I allowed to load my skip above level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will then be asked to remove any materials over the level load line. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or another object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to ensure that containers aren’t overloaded or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you order the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be happy to help.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Electrical products like TVs, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore cannot be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Dereham?
Generally, it will be possible to get the skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But to do this, you will need to get permission from the local council in Dereham, which is known as a skip permit. We can arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this license, and it will sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into various waste streams, which includes wood, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I have to be home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is delivered means that you can make sure the driver is given full access and that your skip is positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to business property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
However, for those who can’t be around during the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you book your order, and then we will organise things from there.
