Fulwood Skip Hire FAQs
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we can access the place you need it delivered, we can take care of it all.
In the event you will not be in, simply provide us with any relevant delivery directions when booking your order. For example, you may want the skip to be located on a particular part of the drive. Or you might need to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct entry to your garage.
Whatever the case may be, simply let us know when you place your order, and we will ensure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
Will my skip have a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip so much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like soil or stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading large bulky objects like pieces of furniture easier also.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop down door, although this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Fulwood, you will have several sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for modest household clearances and DIY work.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for household clearances including large objects like furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for those with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.
To get more information about the different capacities offered, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.
Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms provide a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Will a skip hire company from Fulwood deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our customers in Fulwood and the rest of the country. Our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to guarantee they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Fulwood?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
Is it okay to load my skip higher than level load line?
You should not fill up the skip past the level load line. When you load it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be secure to transport, and you could be asked to remove any extra rubbish before it can be collected.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container that can be used to transport significant quantities of waste. Generally, these containers are hired for business uses. Having said that, residential clients may also hire them. It is very important look at the space they occupy, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be utilised for light-weight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and concrete.
How long will it take to get a skip in Fulwood?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your order prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery spot, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for the wasted journey.
How much will skip hire in Fulwood cost?
This is determined by the skip size you want and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

Can you deliver to other areas in Lancashire?
Yes, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to locations across Lancashire, such as Fulwood, Adlington, Accrington and Clayton-le-Moors. So no matter where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into a range of waste types, which includes wood, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be hired to discard weighty construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.
The builders skip is great for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the garden shed, these large containers tend to be the most affordable option available.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electrical goods such as tumble dryers, televisions, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this provides you with sufficient time to load your skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
What can I put in the skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which will result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Some of the most common things which we pick up in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, cupboards, toilets, and other household items.
There are some materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electrical items (fridges and freezers, TVs and cookers for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must comply with a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
