Fleetwood Skip Hire FAQs
Will my skip have a drop down door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is perfect for disposing of heavy building and construction rubbish, as it can be pushed in to the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are typically less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our best to ensure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
How much waste will fit in a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is perfect for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies offer you a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
Can I fill up the skip above the level load mark?
You should not fill a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste before it can be collected.
Can you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?
We offer a nationwide skip hire and recycling service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are interested in skip hire in Fleetwood, Kirkham, Garstang, Chorley or any other area in Lancashire, we are able to help.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Electric powered items such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and washing machines are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so can not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric goods have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.
Am I allowed to throw all types of rubbish in the skip?
You can put a variety of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in the skip.
There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip due to the possible ecological or health risks they can trigger.
You are unable to get rid of your freezer, printer or your old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items incorporate hazardous components in one form or another. They must be discarded separately from your general waste.
Should you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this waste. Please get in touch for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this kind of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Fleetwood?
The cost of getting a skip in Fleetwood will depend on the size of skip you need. The cheapest skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, because you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
How do I hire a skip?
Hiring a skip in Fleetwood with us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you want and then enter a handful of details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Will a Fleetwood skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Fleetwood. We utilize a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These firms are vetted to be sure they meet the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, price and environmental performance.
How long am I able to keep a skip for?
You can in most cases have a skip for as many as 14 days from your date of delivery. You can give a chosen collection day at the time you place your order. Otherwise, you can tell us after you have loaded the skip, and then we will arrange your collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic times.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will arrive, we endeavour to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a charge for a wasted journey.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is positioned exactly where you need it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to business premises, especially when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this is not achievable, you don’t need to be concerned. Just tell us when you are making your order, and we will handle everything.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste materials, including timber, metals, plastics, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a large container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of rubbish. These skips are predominantly for business use but can be hired by household customers as well. Having said that, you will require a good amount of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, roro containers can only be provided for light-weight materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and rubble.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
A builder’s skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the largest skips that can be hired to dispose of substantial building waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.
A builders skip is ideal for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or cleaning the garden shed, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Fleetwood?
Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a domestic task, then your drive will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be placed on the road, grass verge or any other public property in Fleetwood. If this is required, we will request the permit to be granted on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
