Silloth Skip Hire FAQs

What skip sizes can you deliver?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Silloth, you will have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard container, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is fantastic for small household clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most frequent sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups including large items such as household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to get rid of garden soil or stone.

To get more information regarding the various skip sizes offered, such as proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is usually best to be there on the day it is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you want it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.

However, when this is not achievable, you do not need to worry. Simply let us know when placing your booking, and we will handle everything.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to dispose of substantial building waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or soil.

The builders skip is great for a number of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these big containers tend to be the most affordable choice available.

How much waste will a mini skip hold?

For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to dispose of, the mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is referred to as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is the most common size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to have a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. The price is based on the specific size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are perfect for household tasks including modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Where will the rubbish go once the skip is collected?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be separated into different waste streams, including wood, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

Do you deliver to other areas in Cumbria?

Certainly, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can provide skips to areas across Cumbria, such as Silloth, Broughton in Furness, Longtown and Kirkby Stephen. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

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

You are able to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in your skip would depend on which skip size you have hired, because there is a weight limit. For instance, when you are using your skip for heavy building waste like bricks or soil, the maximum size you can hire is an 8 cubic yard.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, this will give you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, if you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Having a skip with a drop down door makes filling waste into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials like dirt and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away large bulky items like household furniture much easier as well.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to deliver this.

How do I hire a skip?

Ordering a skip in Silloth with us is incredibly easy. Pick the skip size you require and enter a handful of details about when and where you would like your skip delivered. You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than level load line?

It is important not to overload a skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off excess waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you order, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as objects could fall and result in injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please be sure you order a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full and you have additional waste to dispose of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?

The roll-on roll-off skip, often referred to as a RORO, is a huge skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are primarily for business use but can be hired by domestic clients too. However, you should have a good amount of room since these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be provided for lightweight materials like plastics, wood and paper, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and rubble.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Silloth?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a day that best suits you. We will typically give you a following day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you need to obtain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

Due to several factors that can impact our service, we can never promise a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it arriving in a morning or afternoon slot.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Silloth?

Since we offer a national skip hire service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they satisfy our high customer service and environmental principles.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or broken electronic waste products in a skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, refrigerators and monitors. Electrical products can’t be discarded in the skip since they can include dangerous materials and components.

As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Silloth?

This depends upon the size you will need and if you will need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings. To get an immediate quotation for skip hire in Silloth, simply enter the delivery postcode into the search box above.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Silloth?

Preferably, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface. For anybody who is carrying out a domestic job, then your driveway is going to be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you must get a permit from your local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be positioned on the road, grass verge or other public property in Silloth. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be granted for you. An extra cost, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Other areas covered include Broughton in Furness, Longtown, Kirkby Stephen, Grange-over-Sands, Aspatria, Egremont, Barrow-in-Furness and Sedbergh.
