Garstang Skip Hire FAQs
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Garstang?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you must obtain authorisation from the local authority in Garstang, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
Do you deliver skips across Lancashire?
We offer a national skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you need skip hire in Garstang, Preston, Haslingden, Kirkham or another area in Lancashire, we are able to assist.
Is it possible to have a skip that has a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop door can make filling rubbish into it a lot easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials such as dirt or stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to provide this.
How much will skip hire in Garstang cost?
This will depend on the skip size you need and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest choice. The most costly and biggest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings.

What size is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to deal with numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can even handle smaller commercial jobs.
Will a skip hire company from Garstang deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in Garstang. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively assessed to make sure they meet the high expectations we demand regarding service, price and environmental performance.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste streams, like wood, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can typically have a skip for as many as two weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen collection day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us after you have finished, and then we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer during hectic periods.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
You should not fill up a skip past the level load mark. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe to move, and you can be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
Am I able to dispose of all kinds of waste in the skip?
This is amongst the most popular questions people have about skip hire. 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 lots of types of rubbish that could come from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most common items that we pick up in our skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various other household objects.
However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This can include any electronic objects (fridge freezers, televisions and laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all regarded as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them needs to adhere to a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in harm to the environment.
Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?
No, you can not dispose of old or broken electronic waste items in a skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, tumble dryers, fridges and computer monitors. Electrical products can’t be discarded in your skip since they can have hazardous materials and components.
As a result of the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the following day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
What are the different skip sizes available?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Garstang, you will have several options to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is great for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them great for household clearances involving bulky items like furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for people with even larger waste disposal needs. These skips are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or stone.
For more information about the different capacities offered, including proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Garstang?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, type in your delivery postcode to look at all the different skips we are able to deliver to Garstang. Select the size you want to order, and confirm if it will be located on your own property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure online payment platform.
When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are fantastic for numerous types of residential and commercial tasks. They are the biggest size skips which can be used for hefty builders waste like garden soil, stone and gravel.
How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you operate a company in Garstang and need to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers available.
As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are lifted using chains.
Other areas covered include Preston, Haslingden, Kirkham, Ormskirk, Bacup, Morecambe, Colne and Fleetwood.
