Partington Skip Hire FAQs

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

You don’t need to be home when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being home when your skip is delivered means you can make sure the lorry is given complete access and that the skip will be dropped exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is hired to a business property, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, for those who can’t be around for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How much does skip hire in Partington cost?

The cost of hiring a skip in Partington depends on the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general clearances. If you need a larger sized skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The price will also be more if you need to have the skip on the road, because you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Partington?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can usually offer a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to go on public property (such as a street), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to arrange.

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

What are the different skip sizes to choose from?

We offer a full variety of skip sizes to household and commercial customers all over the UK. We have a skip to match all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.

Here are the various skip sizes offered, with a rough idea of the amount of rubbish each size can hold:

  • 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
  • 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
  • 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
  • 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
  • 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
  • 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
  • 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
  • 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Will a skip hire company from Partington deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and nationwide skip hire firms to supply skips to our clients in Partington and the rest of the country. All of our partner companies are verified and tested to make certain they meet our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

Is it okay to fill up my skip above the level load mark?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will be asked to remove any items higher than the level load line. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or some other item, as this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that containers aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to hire the appropriate sized skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size is best. We will be glad to help.

How big is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial size skips used mainly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for organisations that generate large volumes of waste.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

In general, almost all skips can be provided with a drop-down door, dependant upon size, availability and location. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How do I hire a skip?

We have created our online booking process with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to see all the different skip sizes we are able to deliver in Partington. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You then make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm the order as soon as your order is done!

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Partington?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip will be on private property, like a driveway or inside your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can place your skip on your own property, it will save you some money.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip means the size of skip most frequently hired for building projects. There are usually two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to get rid of significant amounts of building and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and stone.

Although they are branded a builder’s skip, these can of course be used for many other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.

What will happen to the waste once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Partington where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, plastics, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How big is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size provided by skip firms and is designed for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 yard skip, that will contain the equivalent of around 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as a mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.

Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

We offer a UK wide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are searching for skip hire in Partington, Horwich, Stalybridge, Rochdale or another area in Greater Manchester, we are able to help.

Am I able to put electrical items in my skip?

Electronic objects such as TVs, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and vacuum cleaners are classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be placed in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical goods should be separated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco-friendly manner.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

You may use your skip to discard many different waste types. We are experienced in picking up and handling a wide variety of materials generated from building work, garden projects and home clearances. Some examples of permitted waste materials can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Soil
  • Stone and concrete
  • Bathroom suites
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Most waste materials are usually allowed, and so whether you want to get rid of metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can usually take your waste away.

The quantity and waste types you put in your skip may vary based on the size skip you chosen. Skips have a maximum weight limit for safety reasons. So to be able to dispose of soil and bricks, for example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use will be the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

What sort of materials am I not allowed to put in my skip?

There are some materials which you are not allowed to dump in the skip. The main reason for this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials which can damage the environment. They could also be dangerous to human health, so they need to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

Some examples of the products that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long can I hire a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that provides you with sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Obviously, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, we are happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

Other areas covered include Horwich, Stalybridge, Rochdale, Middleton, Walkden, Shaw, Salford and Stretford.
