North Walsham Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop down door?

When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also have a drop down door, although these are typically less common. The reason being these sizes are generally small enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our very best to make sure a skip that has a drop door is supplied.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the level load line?

Unfortunately not. You can only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Piling waste materials up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you may be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes using doors, or any other objects to raise the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Electric powered objects like televisions, freezers, fridges, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so cannot be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical products should be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.

Do you use local skip hire companies in North Walsham?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

Do you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?

Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management companies, we can provide skips to household and commercial customers across Norfolk and anywhere else in the UK.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to dispose of large quantities of waste materials. Generally, these containers are hired for industrial uses. However, domestic customers can also use them. It is important to look at the area they occupy, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be hired for light waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and hardcore.

What size is a mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest skip offered by skip companies and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, that can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest container. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We offer a full-range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip perfect for small DIY jobs and household clearances. A common option for bigger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For North Walsham businesses which have a big volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What sort of waste am I able to throw in a skip?

You are able to put a variety of waste types into the skip. This includes wood, floor tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, soil and rock from garden work is allowed as well. Cupboards from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in the skip.

However, there are some things that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible environmental or health risks they might trigger.

You are unable to throw out your fridge, television or your old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous components in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

If you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Please email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery postcode to view the range of skips we can deliver to North Walsham. Choose the size you wish to hire, and confirm if it is going to be positioned on your own property. Enter in your details and then make payment using our secure online payment platform.

When your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we handle the rest.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is the most popular skip that is used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building and demolition projects, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip is the largest size that can be used for heavy waste matter including soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our best to deliver it for you on a day that suits you. We will normally give 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 be on public property (like a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which can take a couple of days to organise.

Due to many factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it arriving within a AM or PM slot.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in when the skip is delivered. You can then ensure that the lorry has complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t need to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your order, and we will handle everything.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in North Walsham?

Our goal is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in North Walsham. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have the skip situated on the street or other council property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of a skip permit.

How long can I keep the skip for?

You can normally have the skip for as many as two weeks from the date of delivery. You can provide a preferred pick up day when you make your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer over hectic times.

If I need a skip on the road in North Walsham, will I need a permit?

In the majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you would like the skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or home, you will need to secure permission from the local council in North Walsham, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this on your behalf, so it’s one less issue to think about. The local authority will charge a fee for the license, plus you should know before booking that obtaining the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to North Walsham where we will sort the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Other areas covered include Norwich, Gorleston-on-Sea, Downham Market, Holt, Diss, Harleston, Hunstanton and Hingham.
