Nelson Skip Hire FAQs
How big is a builders skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These will be the largest skips that can be hired to get rid of heavy building and construction waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or clay.
The builder’s skip is perfect for a wide array of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out the loft space, these large containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.
Will you deliver skips across Lancashire?
Of course, we offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver skips to areas across Lancashire, including Nelson, Fleetwood, Cleveleys and Accrington. So regardless of where you need a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.
Should I be in when the skip is going to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your property. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it ok to fill the skip higher than the level load line?
You must not load a skip past the level load mark. If you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to transport, and you could be asked to take off the excess rubbish prior to it being collected.
What types of waste can you get rid of in a skip?
You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you throw in your skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, when you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes including rubble or top soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be discarded in a skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
How much waste will a mini skip hold?
If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to take on many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.
How long can I hire a skip for?
You can typically keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from your delivery date. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have loaded the skip, and we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over busy periods.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Nelson?
Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Nelson. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip situated on the road or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the added price of the skip permit.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Nelson?
Generally, it will be possible to have the skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But in order to do this, you will need to have consent from your local council in Nelson, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority do charge a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What happens to the waste when the skip is collected?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into a variety of waste streams, such as timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
What is the process of hiring a skip in Nelson?
Ordering a skip in Nelson through us is very easy. Select the skip size you will need and input a few details about when and where you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial size skips that are used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate significant quantities of waste materials.
How soon can you deliver a skip to Nelson?
We will ensure your skip will be delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the very next day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you can not throw old or broken electrical waste products in your skip. This includes such things as laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electric objects can’t be discarded in the skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and should be recycled.
Will a Nelson skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
Is it possible to get a skip with a drop door?
Having a skip that has a drop door can make loading waste into it so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste like soil and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make throwing away big bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier too.
The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you make your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to supply this.
