Rainford Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Rainford?

We use a network of both regional and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Rainford and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire providers are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

You can usually keep your skip for as many as two weeks from the date of delivery. You may give a chosen collection date at the time you make your order. Otherwise, you can let us know once you have finished, and then we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take slightly longer over hectic periods.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be available when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it.

The same applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.

However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.

What size is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price is dependent on the actual size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are good for household jobs like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Can you deliver skips across Merseyside?

In addition to delivering skips to Rainford, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Merseyside. By utilising our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling businesses, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to a house or business in Rainford, Litherland or Bootle, we have got it covered.

How do I hire a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Rainford with us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you require and then enter a few details about when and where you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to remember is that you can fill your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of waste that can result from garden projects, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most common things that we pick up in skips include dirt, wood, bush cuttings, cupboards, baths, and various other household objects.

However, there are some items that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This includes any electrical products (fridge freezers, TVs or laptops for example), old car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all deemed hazardous waste, and getting rid of them must comply with an entirely different procedure to ensure they don’t result in damage to the environment.

Can I load up the skip above level load line?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will be asked to empty any contents above the level load mark. This means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or another object, as this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal obligation to ensure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please make sure that you order the appropriate size of skip to meet your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be happy to help.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door can make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials like garden soil and concrete, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away large bulky items like pieces of furniture a lot easier also.

Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.

Can I throw away electrical products in my skip?

Electrical products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste and therefore should not be put in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic objects have to be separated from other waste. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We will normally give you 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, because to go on public property (for example a road), you need to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

As a result of numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to tell you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a AM or PM slot.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be separated into the various waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This makes sure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How much waste can a builders skip hold?

The builder’s skip is the most common skip which is used throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building jobs, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest size that can be used for hefty waste including dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.

If I want a skip on a road in Rainford, will I need to get a permit?

In most cases, it is possible to get the skip placed on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or company. But to get this done, you have got to have consent from the local authority in Rainford, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it may sometimes take 24-48 hrs for them to authorise this.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are substantial industrial size skips used mainly within the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that produce large amounts of waste materials.

What is the cost of skip hire in Rainford?

This will depend on the size you need and if you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used predominantly in industrial settings.
