Freckleton Skip Hire FAQs
Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?
When you are choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is designed for getting rid of hefty building and demolition waste materials, as it can be walked in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop-down door, however these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
How do I order a skip?

Can I put electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, since electrical products such as old televisions, cookers, computers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Will a Freckleton skip hire company deliver my skip?

This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Freckleton?
Our goal is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Freckleton. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you order. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip placed on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport large amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are hired for commercial purposes. However, domestic clients can also hire them. You should consider the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light materials like paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of soil and rubble.
What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?
You are able to put a wide array of waste into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or rubble from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden work is permitted too. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are some things that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential ecological or health risks they might trigger.
You are unable to throw in your freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal waste.
If you require hazardous waste removal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Please email for more information. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can normally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of providing a preferred collection date when you place your order.
Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.
It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.
What skip sizes can you provide?
We can provide a full-range of skip sizes to match your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. A common option for larger sized projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
For Freckleton businesses which have a large amount of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What happens to the waste in the skip?
The materials in the skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be separated by machines and by hand into various waste materials, including soil, plastics, stone and wood. Processing the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste that has to go in landfill.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Freckleton?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. For anybody who is carrying out a residential project, then the driveway will be best. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from your local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge as well as other public property in Freckleton. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your skip.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to tackle numerous tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can even be used for small commercial jobs.
How fast can you deliver a skip in Freckleton?
We can usually deliver skips to Freckleton the following working day when an order is confirmed before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program gives you a range of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need your skip delivered asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than level load mark?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you may have to empty any contents higher than the level load line. This also means that you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure you order the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be glad to help.
What is classed as being a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for building jobs. There are usually two different skip sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as garden soil, concrete and stone.
Although labelled a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
If you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the skip lorry has full access and that the skip is located exactly where you want it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates restrict access.
On the other hand, when this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when you are placing your booking, and then we will handle everything.
