Kearsley Skip Hire FAQs

How much will skip hire in Kearsley cost?

To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Kearsley, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly display which skip sizes we provide in your area and how much each option will cost to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also have to be factored in.

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

If possible, you should have the skip dropped on to a hard surface area. When you are carrying out a residential project, then your driveway will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from the local council. This is called a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Kearsley. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, because electronic items like old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

If you operate a company in Kearsley and want to dispose of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a perfect option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips available.

As the label implies, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike conventional skips, that are picked up by using chains.

What is the process of hiring a skip in Kearsley?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the road). Next, choose the day you would like the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. All done! We will deliver your chosen skip to Kearsley on the date you have selected.

What is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most popular skip used across the country. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is great for most building and demolition jobs, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yd builder’s skip is the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste such as dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

How quick can you deliver a skip in Kearsley?

We will ensure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.

Will you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

Along with delivering skips to Kearsley, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Greater Manchester. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering in Kearsley, Bolton or Altrincham, we have got it covered.

Do I need to stay in when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t need to be home when the skip is delivered, but it does help. Being there when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the driver can be given full access and that your skip is dropped exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is delivered to company property, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

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

What size skips can have a drop down door?

The majority of skip sizes can be provided with a drop door, making them easy to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to load large and bulky objects, such as furniture.

What is a mini skip?

When you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal option. What size is described as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential work including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Can I stack up the waste in my skip?

It is important not to overfill your skip, as you run the risk of being asked to remove excess waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, because transporting an overloaded container can be hazardous, as materials could drop and cause injury or damage to others.

To avoid this situation, please be sure you order a size appropriate for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some extra waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.

Who will deliver my skip?

To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

What happens to my rubbish once the skip is collected?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Kearsley where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Generally, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What are the different skip sizes to select from?

Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small residential projects.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold roughly 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good choice for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal task to tackle, a builder’s skip may be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label indicates, these are the most popular sizes used by builders for construction waste, like soil and stone. However they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We can also provide 10-16 yard containers and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What can I put in my skip?

This is among the most frequent questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to remember is that you may fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish which can result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we collect in skips include garden soil, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, as well as other household products.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This includes any electronic items (fridges and freezers, TVs and laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and so disposing of them needs to adhere to an entirely different process to make sure they don’t cause damage to the environment.

Other areas covered include Bolton, Altrincham, Horwich, Eccles, Whitefield, Irlam, Ashton-in-Makerfield and Hindley.
