Watton Skip Hire FAQs

Will a Watton skip hire company deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t really need to be at your property when your skip is being delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip is due for delivery means you can make sure the delivery driver is given full access and that the skip is located precisely where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is delivered to your business property, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, if you can’t be available for the delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask that you tell us when you place your order, and we will organise everything from there.

What size skips do you supply?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is perfect for small household tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a good option for garage clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, the builder’s skip may be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name indicates, these represent the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, like clay and rubble. However they can just as well be hired for household waste such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.

We also offer 10-16 cubic yard skips and industrial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For additional details about the range of skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is the cost of skip hire in Watton?

To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Watton, enter your postcode into the search box above. We will instantly show you the sizes we offer in your town and how much each option costs to hire. If the skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also have to be factored in.

Am I allowed to fill up the skip above the top?

No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be told to get rid of the excess waste before your skip can be removed. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it can also make it overweight.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Watton?

This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is put on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, like a driveway or on your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know while completing 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 place your skip on your own land, you will save some pounds.

What waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

You are able to fill your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, top soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes including rubble or top soil, the biggest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard.

Some materials should not be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

Can I throw away electrical items in my skip?

Electronic items such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste type and therefore can not be thrown in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic products have to be segregated from other waste. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How do I hire a skip online?

We have designed our online booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first task is to enter your delivery postcode to see the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver in Watton. Select the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you need your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment through the secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm your order as soon as your booking is done!

Can you deliver to other areas in Norfolk?

Yes, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply skips to locations throughout Norfolk, such as Watton, Downham Market, Attleborough and Swaffham. So no matter where you require a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

How much waste can the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size offered and may describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are ideal for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving blocks and soil. Having a capacity of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make numerous visits to the local recycling centre.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer station, where it will be processed. The waste gets sorted into a variety of waste types, which includes wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Watton?

When your skip is ordered, we will do our very best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We will typically offer a following day delivery service for orders arranged before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, because to go on public property (like a street), you will have to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.

Due to numerous factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?

The roll-on roll-off container, often referred to as a RORO, is a substantial skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These containers are primarily for business use but can be hired by household customers too. Having said that, you need lots of room since these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger when compared to the average skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

As a result of the size, RORO skips should only be provided for light materials such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and so they are not appropriate for disposing of concrete and bricks.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip that is ordered throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and demolition tasks, which is where the name originates from.

The 8 yd builders skip will be the largest size which you can use for heavy materials such as dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.

What skip sizes have a drop down door?

Virtually all skip sizes can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you want a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the skip, especially with weighty materials, such as garden soil and rubble, which can be walked in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in large and bulky items, like furniture.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

You can typically hire your skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the option of providing a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Alternatively, just tell us when you’ve finished loading up the skip, and we will prepare to pick up sooner – in the majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It might take a little while longer to collect your skip during busy periods, however we will always endeavour to be there as swiftly as possible.

Other areas covered include Downham Market, Attleborough, Swaffham, King’s Lynn, Reepham, Great Yarmouth, Hingham and Hunstanton.
