Stalham Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in Stalham?
We can in most cases supply skips to Stalham the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.
Our online booking program gives you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you need the skip delivered asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.
Will a Stalham skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise a comprehensive network of verified and approved companies. These can range from small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to ensure they meet our high customer service and environmental standards.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you run a company in Stalham and need to dispose of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container might be a great option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Stalham?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a permit if it is put on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
What happens to my waste when the skip is picked up?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a variety of waste types, such as wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!
How big is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household waste, a mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to deal with many tasks.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can also tackle small commercial jobs.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building and demolition work. There are typically two skip sizes that may be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of significant volumes of building and demolition waste materials, like dirt, concrete and bricks.
Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for multiple other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Stalham?
Our aim is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Stalham. The price you pay will, obviously, depend on the size of skip you order. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have your skip placed on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of the skip permit.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Stalham, you will have multiple options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is excellent for modest house clearances and DIY work.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for household clear ups involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for customers with even larger waste disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or rubble.
To get more details about the different capacities available, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
How long can I keep the skip for?
You can usually keep a skip for up to 2 weeks from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you will have the choice of offering a preferred collection date when you make your order.
Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the next working day.
It can take a little longer to collect your skip over busy periods, however we will always try to come as quickly as possible.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you want a drop down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Stalham?
Hiring a skip in Stalham with us is very straightforward. Pick the skip size you require and then enter a couple of details about where and when you want the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered.
Am I able to throw all sorts of waste in my skip?
This is amongst the most frequent questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you may load your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many types of waste that can result from garden projects, building work and property clearances.
Among the most typical items that we collect in our skips include soil, wood, tree trimmings, cupboards, sinks, and various household items.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electrical products (tumble dryers, televisions and cookers for example), old tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and therefore disposing of them has to follow an entirely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.
Do you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?
We provide a nationwide skip hire service using a network of verified and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you want skip hire in Stalham, Norwich, Wells-next-the-Sea, Caister-on-Sea or any other area in Norfolk, we can assist.
Am I allowed to pile up the waste in my skip?
Unfortunately not. You are only allowed to load your skip up to the level load line. Piling waste up over this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you can be told to get rid of the surplus 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 can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
Am I allowed to put electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately not, because electrical products including old TVs, fridge freezers, computers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic objects have to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly fashion.
Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?
It is usually best if you can be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same goes if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
