Halesworth Skip Hire FAQs
How do you order a skip?
Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your postcode to view the range of skips we can deliver to Halesworth. Pick the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it will be delivered on your own property. Enter your details and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will make sure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You should make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.
How many different skip sizes are there?

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Halesworth?
This will depend on the size you require and if you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in commercial settings. To receive an immediate quotation for skip hire in Halesworth, simply enter your delivery postcode into the search box above.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Halesworth?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or house, you will have to obtain authorisation from the local authority in Halesworth, which is called a skip permit. If required, we would be glad to arrange this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for construction and demolition projects. There are generally two sizes that may be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition materials, such as garden soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for a number of other household and business waste disposal jobs.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial scale skips used primarily within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce significant amounts of waste.
Can you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?
Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to locations across Suffolk, including Halesworth, Hadleigh, Ipswich and Stowmarket. So regardless of where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Halesworth where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Is it ok to load my skip higher than the level load line?
It is very important to not overload a skip, as you risk being required to remove excessive waste before it can be picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as moving an overloaded skip can be unsafe, as waste could fall and lead to injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please make sure you hire a size suited to your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.
Who will deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to provide customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
Can I dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Unfortunately not, as electrical items like old TVs, cookers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely 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 have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, that will give you 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.
Naturally, should you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a pick up. Just let us know once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Using a skip which has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with hefty materials such as dirt or concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can 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 it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is required, and we will do our best to supply this.
What size is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint makes them great for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste, from house furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a total capacity of around 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip could save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to throw all types of waste in a skip?
This is amongst the most common questions people have about skip hire. The most important thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste that will result from garden projects, construction work and home clearances.
Among the most typical items that we pick up in skips include soil, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household products.
There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridge freezers, televisions or computers for example), tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all considered hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must follow a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause harm to the environment.
