Gainsborough Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you want it.

The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

Who will deliver my skip?

As we provide a national skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified businesses. These can range from small local skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

How do you order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the street). Then, select the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and then make payment using our secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your skip to Gainsborough on the date you have selected.

Will you deliver to other areas in Lincolnshire?

Indeed, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to locations across Lincolnshire, such as Gainsborough, Spilsby, Kirton in Lindsey and Mablethorpe. So wherever you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load mark?

You must not fill up a skip past the level load line. If you load it above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not secure to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste before it can be collected.

What size is a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the ideal solution. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is based on the particular size you order, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household jobs including modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you confirm your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we strive to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will result in a charge for the wasted trip.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

The regular hire term will be a fortnight from the delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can tell us a collection date that is perfect for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to understand that this is not always the case during busier periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

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

No, you cannot throw old electrical waste products in a skip. This includes such things as laptops, hobs, washing machines, fridges and televisions. Electronic objects can’t be disposed of in a skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

How much will skip hire in Gainsborough cost?

Our aim is to give you the cheapest skip hire service in Gainsborough. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip placed on the road or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

What will happen to the rubbish?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility in or local to Gainsborough where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

We provide a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and household clearances. A popular option for larger sized tasks, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Gainsborough firms which produce a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size skips have got a door?

In general, most skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip with a drop door is primarily useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, since it lets you wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This is not as important for midi and mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

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

Usually, it will be possible to get your skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you need to get consent from your local authority in Gainsborough, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do impose a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big industrial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate large volumes of waste materials.

Am I allowed to dispose of all sorts of rubbish in my skip?

This is among the most common questions people have about our service. The main thing to keep in mind is that you can load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste which will come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.

Among the most common things that we find in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and other household items.

There are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. For example, any electrical goods (dishwashers, TVs or laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.

How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most often supplied for building and construction projects. There are generally two skip sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of substantial amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, like garden soil, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for a number of other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.

Other areas covered include Spilsby, Kirton in Lindsey, Mablethorpe, Scunthorpe, Bourne, Market Rasen, Crowle and North Hykeham.
