Grange-over-Sands Skip Hire FAQs

Do I need to be home when the skip is delivered?

No, you do not have to be at home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can access the place you want it positioned, we will manage it all.

When you will not be in, just let us know any relevant delivery directions when placing your order. For example, you might want the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the driveway. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip does not obstruct use of your garage.

No matter what the case might be, let us know when ordering, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in the skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered goods such as tumble dryers, televisions, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

What types of waste materials am I allowed to put in the skip?

It is possible to fill up the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, top soil, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, if you are using your skip for heavy building waste including stone or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What is the cost of skip hire in Grange-over-Sands?

Our aim is to provide you with the most affordable skip hire service in Grange-over-Sands. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you want to have your skip situated on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a capacity of about 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you needing to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of waste, which is perfect for small household jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good option for loft clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal task to undertake, the builder’s skip could be the best option. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name suggests, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building waste, like clay and hardcore. However they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard containers and commercial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can typically keep a skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection day when you make your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

How do you hire a skip in Grange-over-Sands?

This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip will be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Next, pick the date you need the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. Job done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Grange-over-Sands on the day you have selected.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Grange-over-Sands?

Normally, it will be possible to have the skip put on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have approval from the local authority in Grange-over-Sands, which is called a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The council do impose a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

In general, most skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is primarily beneficial if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will typically give you a following day delivery service for orders made before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (like a highway), you will have to gain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of many factors that can impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.

Will a skip hire company from Grange-over-Sands deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Grange-over-Sands and the rest of the UK. All of our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than the side?

It is important to not overload your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excessive waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip is dangerous, as objects could drop and lead to injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this situation, please ensure you hire a size appropriate for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some extra rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

What is a builder’s skip?

The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest skips used to discard substantial building waste materials such as rock, concrete, rubble or garden soil.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of jobs. If you are getting an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the loft space, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective solution available.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?

If you have a business in Grange-over-Sands and wish to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic option. Offered in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.

As the label suggests, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.

What happens to the waste?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a range of waste streams, which includes wood, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. We are proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
