Skelmersdale Skip Hire FAQs
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Skelmersdale?
Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Skelmersdale. The price you pay will, obviously, be determined by the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip positioned on the road or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Skelmersdale?
Normally, it is possible to get your skip put on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or company. But to do this, you need to get permission from the local authority in Skelmersdale, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for your license, and it may sometimes take 24-2 days for them to authorise this.
How do I order a skip in Skelmersdale?
Ordering a skip in Skelmersdale through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you require and enter a couple of details about where and when you want the skip delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?
It is always a good idea to be available when anybody delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How big is a builders skip?
A builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. They are the largest containers used to dispose of substantial building and construction materials such as stone, bricks, rubble or dirt.
The builders skip is perfect for a wide array of projects. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing the shed, these large containers will often be the most affordable option available.
What happens to the rubbish when the skip is picked up?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer station either in or local to Skelmersdale where we will separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will give you plenty of time to load your skip. However, if you do need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Naturally, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your collection. Just contact us when you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
When will my skip be delivered?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even provide a same day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed during the order process.
What sort of rubbish am I able to dispose of in a skip?
You are allowed to throw a wide array of waste types into your skip. This can include wood, floor tiles, plastics or rubble from a property clearance. Plant and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden work is allowed as well. Cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also be thrown in the skip.
There are, however, things that you cannot put in a skip due to the potential environment or health risks they may cause.
You are unable to throw out your fridge, printer or old car tyres. Paint, chemicals and asbestos is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items contain hazardous components in one type or another. They must be discarded separately from general rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste removal, we may be able to schedule an independent service for this material. Feel free to email us for more details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.
Will a Skelmersdale skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Skelmersdale and the rest of the UK. All of our partner firms are verified and tested to make certain they satisfy our standards for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
Will you deliver skips across Lancashire?
As well as delivering skips and containers to Skelmersdale, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Lancashire. Through a network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering to Skelmersdale, Poulton-le-Fylde or Leyland, we have got you covered.
Is it okay to stack up the waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You are only allowed to fill up the skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up above this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you can be asked to get rid of the extra waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and it could also make it overweight.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip great for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for larger tasks, renovations and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.
For Skelmersdale businesses which have a large volume of bulky waste, we can supply RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
For anybody who is choosing a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop down door. This is perfect for getting rid of heavy building and construction materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are generally low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, please tell us when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a container that has a drop door is delivered.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you have a business in Skelmersdale and want to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are picked up using chains.
What is a mini skip?
The mini skip is the smallest size available and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These compact containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and domestic clearances. Their small footprint makes them perfect for driveways.
They can be used to get rid of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and old toys to paving blocks and garden soil. With a total capacity of about 25-30 bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make multiple visits to your local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
I’m afraid this is not allowed, because electronic items including old TVs, fridge freezers, printers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items have to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
