Knutsford Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to take on many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
Will you deliver to other areas in Cheshire?
We offer a national skip hire service through a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you need skip hire in Knutsford, Widnes, Congleton, Crewe or any other site in Cheshire, we are able to help.
How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this provides you with plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip sooner, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Knutsford, you will have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest home clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most frequent sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are great for house clearances including bulky objects like furniture and beds.
We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they can’t be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
For more information about the different sizes offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What waste can I put in a skip?
Before ordering your skip, it is essential to check that the sort of waste materials you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials have to be kept separate and can’t get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Waste types you may discard in a skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and clothing. You could also use your skip to throw out building and construction rubbish, such as wood, soil, stone, metals and concrete.
Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from any general rubbish.
What happens to my rubbish once the skip is picked up?
The items in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, like metal, plastics, stone and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Knutsford?
The price of getting a skip in Knutsford is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a bigger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip positioned on the road, as you will require a permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electrical products like old TVs, fridge freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
What size is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you manage a business in Knutsford and want to get rid of large volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.
Can I load my skip above the level load mark?
You must not fill up a skip past the level load mark. If you load it over the tip of this level, it means your skip is not secure to transport, and you might be asked to take off the extra rubbish before it can be picked up.
Can I get a skip which has a drop door?
In general, the majority of skips can be supplied with a hinged door, dependant upon skip size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a big builder’s skip, as it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often used for building and demolition jobs. There are generally two different sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of building and demolition waste materials, such as soil, rubble and rock.
Although labelled a builders skip, they can of course be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
How long does it take to get a skip in Knutsford?
When you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the very next day. In some instances, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates will be confirmed during the order process.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Knutsford?
This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
If you need to get a permit, we can organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position the skip on your own property, you will save a few pounds.
Who will deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Knutsford and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling and reliability.
Do I need to be at home when the skip is due to be delivered?
When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there when the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.
Having said that, if this is not feasible, you do not need to worry. Simply tell us when making your order, and we will take care of the rest.
