Formby Skip Hire FAQs

Who will deliver my skip?

Since we offer a national skip service, we use a comprehensive network of verified companies. These can range from small local skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for modest DIY projects and domestic clearances. A popular option for more substantial jobs, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Formby businesses with a significant volume of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than level load line?

You should not load a skip past the level load line. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be secure to move, and you can be asked to take off the excess rubbish before it can be collected.

Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of waste in the skip?

You are allowed to load the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip will depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or top soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be discarded in your skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

How big is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip might be the best choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from company to company, according to what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for household work including modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

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

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electronic items like tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can usually have a skip for up to two weeks from your date of delivery. It is possible to give a chosen pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished with the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy times.

What size skips will have a door?

When you are hiring 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 construction waste, as it can be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, though these are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip with a drop door is provided.

What is the size of a builders skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that these are the most typical sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are suited to an array of residential and industrial jobs. They are the biggest size skips that can be used for hefty builders waste such as soil, stone and bricks.

How can I order a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Formby through us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you need and then input a few details about where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Can you deliver skips across Merseyside?

Along with delivering skips and containers to Formby, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Merseyside. By utilising our network of local and national skip businesses, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to Formby, Haydock or Maghull, we have got you covered.

Where will my rubbish go when the skip is picked up?

The materials in the skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the waste will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, cardboard, rubble and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

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

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the lorry has total access and that the skip will be situated precisely where you want it. This also is true when you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, if that is not feasible, you do not need to stress. Simply tell us when you are making your booking, and we will take care of the rest.

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

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be situated on land outside of your company or residence, you will have to obtain permission from your local authority in Formby, which is referred to as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip permit, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can often take up to two working days.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to dispose of significant volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these containers are hired for commercial uses. Having said that, domestic customers may also order them. You should take into account the space they occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for light-weight materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and rubble.

Other areas covered include Haydock, Maghull, Litherland, Bebington, St Helens, Wallasey, Birkenhead and Kirkby.
