Below are some of the frequently asked questions we get regarding our skip hire services.

Helmsley Skip Hire FAQs

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

Electrical items such as TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic products should be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Will a Helmsley skip hire company deliver my skip?

Since we provide a UK-wide skip hire service, we use a diverse network of approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to nationwide waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you have a company in Helmsley and need to dispose of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the label indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, which are picked up by using chains.

How do I order a skip?

Hiring a skip in Helmsley with us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you want and then enter a few details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered to you.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We can supply a full range of skip sizes to match your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip best for modest DIY projects and household clearances. A common choice for larger sized tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 yard skip.

For Helmsley firms which generate a significant volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Helmsley?

Our aim is to deliver the lowest priced skip hire service in Helmsley. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip situated on the road or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of the skip permit.

Will you deliver skips across North Yorkshire?

Of course, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations across North Yorkshire, such as Helmsley, Northallerton, Ripon and Yarm. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How long does it take to get a skip in Helmsley?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you 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 unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?

You don’t really need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being there when the skip arrives means you can ensure the delivery driver can be given complete access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to a business premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, in the event you can’t be available during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise things from there.

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

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto 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 placed on land outside of your business or house, you have got to secure authorisation from your local authority in Helmsley, which is referred to as a skip permit. If required, we would gladly organise this for you, so it’s one less point to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip permit, plus you should be aware before booking that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.

What size is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Will the skip have a drop door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop down door, making them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and bricks, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most frequent skip which is used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yd builders skip is the largest option that you can use for heavy waste including garden soil, concrete, rock and rubble.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into various waste types, which includes stone, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the waste is recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can in most cases keep the skip for as long as 14 days from your date of delivery. You are able to give a preferred collection date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and then we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a bit longer over hectic periods.

Can I stack up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will have to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that bins are not overloaded or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you select the appropriate sized skip to suit your needs and get in touch if you are not sure which size you require. We would be happy to help.

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

It is possible to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, bricks, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight limit. For example, if you will be using the skip for heavy building waste such as rubble or dirt, the largest size you could hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Other areas covered include Northallerton, Ripon, Yarm, Thirsk, Pateley Bridge, Skipton, Marske-by-the-Sea and Selby.
