Morecambe Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver skips across Lancashire?

We offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service using a network of verified and fully licensed local businesses. So whether you need skip hire in Morecambe, Clitheroe, Nelson, Blackburn or any other area in Lancashire, we can assist.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Morecambe?

This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us during the order process, and we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on your own property, it will save you a few pounds.

Am I able to throw all kinds of waste in my skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The most important thing to keep in mind is that you may fill up your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish which will come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.

Among the most typical things which we see in our skips include garden soil, wood, hedge trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various household objects.

There are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. For example, any electronic products (fridges and freezers, TVs and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. These are all deemed hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them must adhere to an entirely different procedure to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

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

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop door helps make filling rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials like soil or stone, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items like pieces of furniture much easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, however it will sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when making your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our very best to supply this.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Morecambe?

Our goal is to offer the lowest priced skip hire service in Morecambe. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have the skip placed on the highway or any other council property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.

What size is a mini skip?

If you have a small amount of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is described as a mini skip is different from company to company, based on what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is probably the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The price is based on the particular size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household jobs including small DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How do I hire a skip in Morecambe?

Hiring a skip in Morecambe through us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you want and then input a few details about when and where you need the skip delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Can I throw electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items like cookers, TVs, kettles, computers and even hairdryers.

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Can I fill up the skip higher than the top?

It is very important to not overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take out excessive waste prior to it being picked up. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip is dangerous, as rubbish could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please make sure you hire a skip size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full but you have some extra waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builder’s skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which you can use for heavy materials including soil, concrete, rock and gravel.

Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?

It is usually best if you can be available when anyone delivers something to your house. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed precisely where you want it.

The same applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for companies that generate large amounts of waste.

What happens to the waste once the skip is picked up?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a number of waste streams, which includes timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a date that suits you. We can usually provide a next day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you will need to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up in a AM or PM slot.

Other areas covered include Clitheroe, Nelson, Blackburn, Church, Freckleton, Padiham, Brierfield and Leyland.
