King’s Lynn Skip Hire FAQs
What skip sizes do you provide?
When it comes to ordering a skip in King’s Lynn, you have multiple sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact container is fantastic for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them ideal for house clearances involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For more details about the various skip sizes available, including dimensions, take a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Do you deliver skips across Norfolk?
We provide a UK wide skip hire and recycling service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in King’s Lynn, Wymondham, Stalham, Caister-on-Sea or any other site in Norfolk, we are able to help.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Getting a skip which has a drop door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with hefty materials like dirt or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky objects like pieces of furniture a lot easier as well.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, but this can sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
Will a King’s Lynn skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire firm will most likely deliver your skip in King’s Lynn. We employ a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are thoroughly vetted to make sure they fulfill the high standards we require regarding service, cost and environmental performance.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you operate a company in King’s Lynn and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a great choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the name implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in King’s Lynn?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you need your skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you must secure permission from your local council in King’s Lynn, which is known as a permit. If required, we would be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less point to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before booking that getting the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.
What will happen to the rubbish in my skip?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into different waste materials, such as wood, metals, plastics, etc. This makes sure that as much of the rubbish as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is the size of a builder’s skip?
The name builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These are the largest skips used to dispose of heavy building waste materials such as rock, bricks, rubble or garden soil.
A builder’s skip is great for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning the loft space, these substantial skips will often be the most affordable choice available.
How can I order a skip in King’s Lynn?
Ordering a skip in King’s Lynn with us is incredibly simple. Decide on the skip size you require and input a couple of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
Am I allowed to throw electrical products in the skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electrical items like old televisions, cookers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
How long can I hire a skip for?
The normal hire period is a fortnight from the date of delivery. However, when you book your skip, you can provide a pick up date that is ideal for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if the skip is finished with earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it picked up at the earliest opportunity.
We will normally be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that this is not always the case at busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be transported to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed and sorted.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in King’s Lynn?
To find out how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in King’s Lynn, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you which skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each size will cost to hire. If your skip will be on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also have to be factored in.
Do I have to be there when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
Nonetheless, should it be unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What size is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to get rid of some domestic waste, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to take on numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often hired by household customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
What things can I put in the skip?
A skip can be hired to discard lots of different types of waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling lots of items generated from construction work, garden projects and house tidy-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types can include:
- Household furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Top soil
- Bathroom sinks and toilets
- Kitchen cabinets and units
The majority of waste materials are generally accepted, therefore whether you want to dispose of metals, plastics, timber or fabric, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The volume and waste types you discard in your skip will vary according to the size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you wish to dispose of top soil and concrete, as an example, the largest size container you will be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are a few waste items that you are not able to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that some products contain hazardous materials which could be harmful to the environment. They can even be damaging to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately within UK law.
A few of the goods that are restricted include:
- Paint cans
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas canisters
- Computer screens
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
How long does it take to get a skip in King’s Lynn?
If you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.
Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it unsafe to move, and you will then be asked to empty any items above the level load line. This also means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to ensure that containers are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure you choose the appropriate sized skip to meet your requirements and get in touch if you’re unsure which size you need. We would be happy to help.
