Hoylake Skip Hire FAQs
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Hoylake and the rest of the UK. Our partner businesses are approved and evaluated to make sure they meet our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Can I fill the skip above the top?
You must not fill a skip past the level load line. If you fill it up above the tip of this mark, it means your skip is not safe to move, and you could be asked to take off any extra waste prior to it being collected.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Having a skip with a drop door makes filling rubbish into it much easier. This is especially true with hefty materials such as garden soil or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when placing your booking if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.
If I require a skip on a road in Hoylake, will I need to have a permit?
If at all possible, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface. When you are doing a residential project, then your drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge could be your only choice. As this is public land, you have got to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Hoylake. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
When you have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip might be the ideal option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, determined by what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the particular size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are good for domestic work like small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you would like it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. Mostly, these skips are used for business purposes. However, household customers may also hire them. It is important to look at the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be used for light-weight waste such as paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.
Can you deliver skips across Merseyside?
As well as delivering skips to Hoylake, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Merseyside. Through our network of local and national skip businesses, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Hoylake, Billinge or Birkenhead, we have got it covered.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical products like old televisions, refrigerators, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly fashion.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Hoylake, you will have multiple sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest house clearances and DIY work.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for house tidy ups involving large items such as furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
For additional information regarding the different capacities available, such as measurements, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into several different waste types, such as stone, metals and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most frequently used for construction and demolition work. There are generally two different sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of significant quantities of construction and demolition materials, including soil, rubble and rock.
Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for multiple other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Usually, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

What can I put in my skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about skip hire. The main thing to consider is that you can load your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are numerous types of waste that may result from garden work, building work and home clearances.
Some of the most typical things which we see in skips include dirt, wood, bush trimmings, kitchen units, toilets, and various household items.
There are some items that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electrical objects (refrigerators, TVs or computers for example), old car tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all deemed hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to abide by a completely different procedure to make sure they do not cause damage to the environment.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Hoylake?
We will ask you to confirm when you want the skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. Most of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery area, as failed delivery attempts can lead to a fee for a wasted journey.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Hoylake?
This depends upon the size you want and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the lowest priced choice. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Should I stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you need it located, we can take care of everything.
In case you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you book the order. For example, you might need the skip to be dropped at a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to ensure that the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, provide the information when ordering, and then we will make sure the instructions will be passed on to the lorry driver.
