Norwich Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The term builder’s skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most typical sizes used by general builders and tradespeople.
These substantial skips are perfect for numerous residential and industrial projects. They are the largest sizes which can be used for heavy builders waste such as top soil, rubble and bricks.
How can I hire a skip?
We have developed our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. Step one is to enter your address to view all the different skip sizes we can provide in Norwich. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we’ll send an email to verify the transaction as soon as your order is complete!
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive container that can be used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are predominantly for industrial use but can be used by domestic clients also. However, you need a lot of space as these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.
Due to the size, roro containers can only be used for light-weight materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and bricks.
Can I fill the skip higher than the top?
Make sure you don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably be asked to remove any contents over the level load mark. This means you are unable to make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal obligation to ensure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.
Please make sure that you choose the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in contact if you are not sure which size is best. We will be pleased to help.
If I require a skip on a road in Norwich, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a drive or on your company premises.
If you need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can have your skip on your own land, it will save you some money.
Can I put electronic items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This can include all electric powered goods such as tumble dryers, monitors, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of two week. Which means you don’t need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.
Will you deliver skips across Norfolk?
Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can deliver skips to both household and commercial customers across Norfolk and elsewhere within the UK.
Where do you take the rubbish from my skip?
After you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility in or local to Norwich where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Which skip sizes can have a drop door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is designed for disposing of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked into the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop-down door, though these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you require a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container with a drop door is provided.
What things can I put in my skip?
You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from garage clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you will be using your skip for heavy building wastes such as stone or soil, the maximum size you could use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials can not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
No, you do not have to be home when we deliver your skip. Providing we can gain access to the place you need it positioned, we are able to take care of it all.
If you will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when placing the order. For example, you may need the skip to be positioned on a particular side of your driveway. Or you may need to be sure that the skip doesn’t prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure your instructions are passed on to the delivery driver.
How much will it cost to hire a skip in Norwich?
Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Norwich. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip situated on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We can normally deliver skips to Norwich the next working day when an order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our simple online booking system gives you a variety of delivery dates to choose from. So whether you need the skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
If you are searching for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to handle many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even be used for smaller commercial jobs.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We supply a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A common choice for more substantial projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Norwich companies which produce a big volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.
