Ince-in-Makerfield Skip Hire FAQs
How quick can you deliver a skip to Ince-in-Makerfield?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you confirm your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Ince-in-Makerfield?
In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to get permission from the local council in Ince-in-Makerfield, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, and so it’s one less thing to think about. The council will charge a fee for the skip license, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
A roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are mainly for business use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you will need lots of space because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, these skips should only be used for light materials like plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.
Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?
It is important to not overload the skip. You can not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very dangerous to move. This means that when you overfill your skip, you might be required to remove the surplus waste. No matter how safe you feel the skip is, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is therefore prohibited.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Ince-in-Makerfield?
The cost of hiring a skip in Ince-in-Makerfield depends on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a bigger skip, like an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also increase if you need to have a skip placed on the highway, because you will need a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do you deliver to other areas in Greater Manchester?
Absolutely. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to domestic and business customers throughout Greater Manchester and elsewhere in the UK.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
The standard hire period is a fortnight from the delivery date. Having said that, at the time you order the skip, you can select a pick up date that will work for you. Obviously, there is a chance that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is fully loaded sooner than expected, contact us, and we will get it picked up as quickly as possible.
We can usually be out to get your skip within 48 hours. Having said that, it is important to bear in mind this may not always be possible at busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be taken to your local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.
Is it possible to get a skip that has a drop door?
In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow waste materials directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What will happen to the waste?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?
No, you can not put old electrical waste products in a skip. This can include things such as laptops or computers, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and television sets. These products can’t be disposed of in the skip as they can contain hazardous materials and components.
Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot be sent to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
How do you order a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Ince-in-Makerfield with us is very straightforward. Choose the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Ince-in-Makerfield?
We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to deliver skips to our clients in Ince-in-Makerfield and the rest of the country. All of our partner skip companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The phrase builders skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These big skips are fantastic for numerous types of domestic and commercial projects. These are the largest skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like top soil, rubble and gravel.
What can I put in the skip?
Before ordering a skip, you must ensure that the type of waste materials you want to get rid of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types it is possible to throw in your skip include home goods like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You may also use your skip to dispose of building and construction waste, such as old bricks, soil, rubble, metals and concrete.
Some examples of restricted items include electronic items, tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. These are all considered hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be discarded separately from general rubbish.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Ince-in-Makerfield, you will have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for small domestic clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their big capacity also makes them ideal for household clear ups involving bulky items such as household furniture and beds.
We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
For further information regarding the various capacities offered, such as proportions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is ideal for small DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be located precisely where you want it. The same is applicable when you have a skip delivered to company premises, especially if gates limit access.
However, if this isn’t feasible, you do not have to stress. Just let us know when you are making your order, and we will take care of everything.
