Hinckley Skip Hire FAQs
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your house. You can then make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be located precisely where you need it.
The same thing goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What sizes do skips come in?
Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to suit different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small domestic projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent option for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to take on, a builder’s skip may be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, they are the most popular sizes hired by builders for building waste, such as soil and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also provide 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.
How long will it take to get a skip in Hinckley?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the following day. In some instances, we can even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the order process.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large industrial size skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that generate large volumes of waste materials.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
You can in most cases have your skip for as long as 2 weeks from your date of delivery. You are able to provide a preferred collection date at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know once you have finished, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take a little longer during busy times.
Where does my waste be taken to once the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into different waste materials, such as timber, metals, paper, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Who will deliver my skip?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and national businesses. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop down door helps make filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like soil or rubble, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Hinckley?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a domestic project, then a drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. On the other hand, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. As this is public property, you have got to have a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Hinckley. If this is needed, we will request the permit to be issued for you. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Can I dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items need to be kept separate from general waste to get recycled or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered products including cookers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hairdryers.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Hinckley?
We have designed our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to type in your postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Hinckley. Select the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you need the skip delivered. After that you can make payment through the secure payment platform, and we’ll send an email to confirm your order once your booking is done!
Am I allowed to throw all sorts of rubbish in my skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you may fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of rubbish that may come from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Among the most common items that we collect in our skips include dirt, timber, hedge trimmings, kitchen units, baths, as well as other household items.
However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in the skip. This can include any electronic items (refrigerators, televisions and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them must comply with a completely different procedure to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
Do you deliver skips across Leicestershire?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to residential and business customers across Leicestershire and elsewhere in the UK.
What is a builder’s skip?
As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition jobs. There are typically two different skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, such as dirt, rubble and stone.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal tasks.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Hinckley?
The cost of getting a skip in Hinckley will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you require a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Is it ok to fill my skip higher than level load line?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it hazardous to transport, and you will have to empty any contents above the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another item, as this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure you select the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be happy to help.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip firms and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.
