Hale Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Hale skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be used to get rid of heavy building and demolition waste such as rock, concrete, rubble or clay.

The builder’s skip is perfect for a variety of tasks. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or clearing the loft, these large skips are usually the most affordable option available.

What things can I put in the skip?

It is possible to fill the skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from loft clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in your skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you are using a skip for heavy building wastes like rubble or soil, the largest size you would be able to use is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in your skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Hale?

Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Hale. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have a skip placed on the road or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

Can you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?

As well as delivering skips to Hale, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Greater Manchester. Through our network of local and national waste management and recycling businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Hale, Stalybridge or Radcliffe, we have got it covered.

How do I order a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Hale with us is incredibly straightforward. Choose the skip size you require and then input a few details about when and where you would like the skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

What size is the mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to get rid of, a mini skip could be the best solution. What size is known as a mini skip varies from business to business, determined by what sizes they provide.

The most popular size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

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

What will happen to the rubbish?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to a local waste transfer facility. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like soil, cardboard, concrete and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

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

You don’t really need to be home when the skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being in when the skip is due to be delivered means you can make sure the driver is given full access and that your skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to company property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Even so, when you can’t be around during the time of delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will arrange everything from there.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will normally give you a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, since to go on public property (like a street), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

What skip sizes have got a door?

For anybody who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop door. This is ideal for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, although these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a container with a drop door is provided.

How long can I hire the skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this gives you plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you do need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Our company offers a complete selection of skip capacities to residential and commercial clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Listed below are the different skip sizes to choose from, with a rough idea of how much waste each size can hold:

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

The RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container used to get rid of significant volumes of waste materials. In most cases, these type of skips are hired for commercial applications. Having said that, household clients can also use them. You will need to consider the area they will take up, since they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be used for light waste including plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and stone.

Is it okay to fill the skip above the top?

It is very important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take out excessive waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you order, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because transporting an overloaded container will be dangerous, as waste could drop and result in injuries or damage to others.

To avoid this problem, please ensure you order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more rubbish to get rid of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.

Can I put electrical items in my skip?

Electronic items like TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and washing machines are classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical items need to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Hale?

Normally, it will be possible to have your skip located on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But in order to do this, you need to have approval from your local authority in Hale, which is known as a skip permit. We will order this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will charge a fee for this permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.

Other areas covered include Stalybridge, Radcliffe, Middleton, Atherton, Eccles, Whitefield, Worsley and Romiley.
