Ipswich Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes can you offer?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Ipswich, you have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for modest household clearances and DIY work.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their big capacity also makes them great for house clearances including large items like furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they cannot be used to get rid of soil or concrete.

For more details about the various sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a substantial container used to get rid of large volumes of waste. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients as well. Having said that, you will require a good amount of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, these skips should only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, so they are not suitable for disposing of concrete and bricks.

Will you deliver to other areas in Suffolk?

Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to provide skips to domestic and industrial customers across Suffolk and anywhere else in the UK.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most common skip used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the largest option that you can use for hefty waste materials including dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of 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 complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered to you the following 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 conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries can result in a charge for a wasted journey.

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

It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your house. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Is it ok to pile up the waste in my skip?

You must not load a skip past the level load line. When you load it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you can be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being picked up.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Using a skip which has a drop door can make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is particularly the case with hefty waste materials like dirt and rubble, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, although this will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.

Can I put electrical products in the skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical products including washing machines, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

How long can I keep the skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will normally include a hire period of up to 2 weeks. In most cases, this will provide you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Where does the rubbish go when the skip is collected?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre in or local to Ipswich where we sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

How do I order a skip online?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). Next, choose the date you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our secure online payment platform. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Ipswich on the day you have chosen.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size available from skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as being a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

What is the cost of skip hire in Ipswich?

Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Ipswich. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have your skip positioned on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of a skip permit.

Will a Ipswich skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Ipswich. We make use of a network of both local and national companies to allow us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These companies are vetted to make certain they fulfill the high expectations we require in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Ipswich?

Preferably, you want to have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a domestic job, then a drive is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be located on the road, grass verge as well as other public property in Ipswich. If this is needed, we will request the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What can I put in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of kinds of waste which will result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Among the most typical things that we see in skips include soil, timber, tree trimmings, cabinets, baths, as well as other household items.

There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to put in your skip. This can include any electrical goods (fridges, TVs or washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste materials, and getting rid of them has to abide by an entirely different process to ensure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Other areas covered include Leiston, Newmarket, Southwold, Eye, Kesgrave, Beccles, Wickham Market and Bungay.
