Felixstowe Skip Hire FAQs
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop down door?
If you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is ideal for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop down door, though these are typically less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a container which has a drop door is supplied.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Felixstowe, you will have multiple options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also means they are great for house tidy ups including large objects like furniture and beds.
We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for light waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.
For additional details about the different capacities available, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Will a Felixstowe skip hire company deliver my skip?
Since we provide a national skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified companies. These include small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.
Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. This also is true for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, when this isn’t feasible, you do not need to worry. Just let us know when you are making your order, and then we will take care of everything.
How can I hire a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. This is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your delivery address to look at all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Felixstowe. Select which size you would like to order, and confirm whether it will be dropped on private property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Felixstowe?
Generally, it is possible to get the skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to get this done, you must get permission from your local authority in Felixstowe, which is called a skip permit. We can order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for the permit, and it may sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
The standard hire term is a fortnight from the date of delivery. However, when you book your skip, you can tell us a pick up date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your project will take. Therefore, if the skip is full sooner than anticipated, let us know, and we will collect it as soon as possible.
We will usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible during busier periods. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
Where will my waste go when the skip is collected?
The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling centre. Here the waste will be separated by machines and also by hand into different waste materials, like metal, cardboard, stone and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise recycling and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.
What kinds of rubbish can I dispose of in a skip?
It is possible to throw a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Shrub and bush cuttings, soil and stone from garden work is permitted too. Cupboards and worktops from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.
However, there are some things that you cannot put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risk they can cause.
You cannot throw out your fridge freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate service for this material. Please get in touch for more details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint makes them excellent for driveways.
They may be used to get rid of all types of waste, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving slabs and concrete. Having a total capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple visits to the local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not put old electronic waste products in your skip. This can include items like laptops, hobs, washing machines, freezers and computer monitors. These items can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can contain hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.
Can I stack up the waste in my skip?
It is vital to not overload your skip. You must not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very dangerous to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you could be required to remove the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is prohibited.
What is the size of a builders skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, like soil, rubble and stone.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Felixstowe?
Our aim is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Felixstowe. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip positioned on the road or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra price of a skip permit.
How long will it take to get a skip in Felixstowe?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts will lead to a charge for a wasted trip.
Can you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?
Yes. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to both household and business customers throughout Suffolk and elsewhere within the UK.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you run a company in Felixstowe and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a fantastic choice. Offered in 20 – 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the name implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.
