Northwich Skip Hire FAQs
Will the skip have a drop down door?
For anyone who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be walked into the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also feature a drop door, although these are more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is supplied.
What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?
Once you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste transfer station in or local to Northwich where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Will a skip hire company from Northwich deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our customers in Northwich and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner businesses are verified and tested to guarantee they meet our standards for cost, service, recycling rates and reliability.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Northwich?
Our goal is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Northwich. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra cost of a skip permit.
Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?
You should not load your skip beyond the level load line. When you fill it up above the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not safe and secure to move, and you could be asked to remove any extra rubbish prior to it being picked up.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products must be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric powered goods including washing machines, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How long will it take to get a skip in Northwich?
We can normally deliver skips to Northwich the following working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program provides you with a number of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.
What size skips do you supply?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Northwich, you will have various options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is great for small home clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also means they are suitable for house tidy ups including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even bigger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
For additional information about the different capacities offered, such as measurements, check out our help guide to skip sizes.
Do I need to stay in when the skip will be delivered?
You don’t really need to be home when the skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being in when the skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given full access and that your skip can be placed precisely where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to a business property, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.
However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange everything from there.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These skips are mainly for commercial use but can be used by residential customers as well. Having said that, you will want lots of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the roadside.
As a result of the size, RORO containers should only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not suited to disposing of concrete and bricks.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and domestic clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste, from household furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and soil. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you needing to make several journeys to your local recycling centre.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?
You can fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you throw in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy building waste such as stone or garden soil, the maximum size you can get is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure that the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of giving a preferred collection day when placing your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the vast majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It may take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
What is classed as a builder’s skip?
The term builders skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and the 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes hired by general builders and tradespeople.
These large skips are perfect for a wide variety of residential and business jobs. They are the largest size skips which you can use for hefty builders waste including top soil, rubble and concrete.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Northwich?
If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a residential task, then a drive is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only choice. As this is public property, you will have to have a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Northwich. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
Will you deliver to other areas in Cheshire?
Certainly. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can supply skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Cheshire and elsewhere in the UK.
