This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on public property (like the street). Then, select the day you need your skip to get delivered.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as soon as possible.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

You don’t need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, but it can help. Being there when the skip is delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver is given complete access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to a business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, particularly if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

However, if you can’t be available during delivery, there is no need to worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.

Can you deliver to other areas in Tyne and Wear?

Along with delivering skips to South Shields, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Tyne and Wear. By utilising our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to South Shields, Sunderland or Wallsend, we have got it covered.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builder’s skip can refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be used to discard substantial building and demolition waste materials such as stone, concrete, rubble or clay.

A builders skip is perfect for a variety of projects. Whether you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these substantial skips are often the most affordable choice available.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive with your skip, we try to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will lead to a charge for a wasted trip.

Am I allowed to fill the skip above level load line?

No. You must only fill up the skip up to the level load mark. Loading rubbish up above this line would make it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

Will the skip come with a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door can make loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially true with hefty waste such as garden soil and stone, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like furniture a lot easier too.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, however this can sometimes depend on location and availability. Let us know when making your online order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

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

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are substantial industrial size skips used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that generate significant amounts of waste.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in South Shields?

This will depend on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is put 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 company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know during the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in South Shields?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in South Shields. The price you pay will, naturally, depend on the size of skip that you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have your skip located on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.

What types of waste can I put in a skip?

You are able to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from loft clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, top soil, concrete, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy building waste such as stone or dirt, the biggest size you would be able to use is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in South Shields, you have various sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest household clearances and DIY jobs.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain 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 common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their substantial capacity also means they are well suited for household clearances involving bulky items like furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger waste disposal needs. These containers are only suited to lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.

For additional information about the different capacities available, such as dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

When you have finished with your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer facility either in or local to South Shields where we sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical products in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include items like computers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and computer monitors. These objects can’t be disposed of in your skip as they can have hazardous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip might be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they offer.

2 cubic yards is the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard container as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the particular size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for residential tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

Other areas covered include Sunderland, Wallsend, Whickham, Whitley Bay, Meadow Well, Whitburn, Gateshead and Longbenton.
