Thetford Skip Hire FAQs
Will a skip hire company from Thetford deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of approved companies. These can include small family-run skip hire firms to national waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.
How much waste can the mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old toys to paving slabs and soil. With a volume of approximately 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip could save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.
Do I need to be at home when my skip will be delivered?
No, you do not need to be home when we deliver the skip. Provided that we are able to gain access to where you want it positioned, we are able to take care of everything.
For those who are not likely to be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be dropped on a particular area of the drive. Alternatively, you might need to ensure that the skip does not prevent entry to your garage.
No matter what the situation might be, simply tell us when you place your order, and then we will make sure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
Do you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?
Yes. We can provide skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to household and commercial customers across Norfolk and anywhere else within the UK.
Is it possible to get a skip which has a drop down door?
When you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, although they are less common. The reason being these sizes are typically small enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip that has a drop door is delivered.
How quick can you deliver a skip to Thetford?
We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You have to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted journey.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Thetford?
This depends upon where the skip will be located. You will only need to have a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we will organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private land, you will save a few pounds.
Is it ok to fill my skip above the level load line?
You must not fill up a skip beyond the level load mark. If you fill it over the tip of this mark, it means that your skip will not be secure to move, and you may be asked to take off the extra waste before it can be collected.
Am I able to put electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general waste to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical items like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, tablets and even hair straighteners.
How do you order a skip online?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). After that, pick the day you need the skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Thetford on the date you have selected.
What will happen to the rubbish in the skip?
The rubbish in your skip will be taken to a local waste transfer centre. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into numerous waste materials, like metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Thetford?
Our aim is to give you the lowest priced skip hire service in Thetford. The price you pay will, of course, be determined by the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you want to have the skip placed on the highway or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
If you run a business in Thetford and need to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips available.
As the label suggests, these type of containers can be rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, unlike regular skips, that are picked up using chains.
What sort of rubbish am I able to put in a skip?
This is one of the most popular questions people have about our service. 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 kinds of rubbish which can come from garden work, building work and household clearances.
Among the most typical items that we find in skips include soil, timber, hedge cuttings, cupboards, bathroom suites, and various household products.
There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. For example, any electronic goods (fridge freezers, TVs and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos materials, plasterboard and paint. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials, and disposing of them needs to abide by a completely different process to ensure they do not cause harm to the environment.
What is the size of a builders skip?
The phrase builders skip can relate to two different sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yd skip. The name stems from the fact that they are the most popular sizes ordered by general builders and tradespeople.
These large containers are suited to a wide variety of domestic and commercial tasks. These are the biggest sizes that you can use for hefty builders waste such as dirt, rubble and concrete.
What skip sizes do you deliver?
Skips are available in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household tasks.
Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent option for loft clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.
If you have a more substantial waste disposal task to deal with, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the label indicates, these represent the most popular sizes used by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.
We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
Typically, you can have a skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
