Whitefield Skip Hire FAQs
What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?
If you run a business in Whitefield and wish to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.
As the label implies, these type of containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
How large is a mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to handle many jobs.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.
Although most frequently hired by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
Can I stack up waste in my skip?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being asked to take off surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because transporting an overloaded container will be hazardous, as rubbish could drop and result in personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this issue, please make sure you hire a skip size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some further rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
How much does skip hire in Whitefield cost?
Our aim is to give you the most affordable skip hire service in Whitefield. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have the skip located on the street or other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.
Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electronic items such as old televisions, cookers, pcs and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly way.
Do you deliver skips across Greater Manchester?

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
You can usually keep the skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection time when you make your order.

What is classed as being a builders skip?
The term builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders and tradespeople.
These substantial containers are perfect for an array of residential and commercial projects. They are the biggest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste including dirt, stone and concrete.
How can I hire a skip in Whitefield?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, enter your delivery postcode to view all the different skips we can deliver to Whitefield. Pick the size you would like to hire, and confirm if it is going to be dropped on your own property. Enter your information and then make payment using our secure payment platform.
After your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with all your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
How quickly can you deliver a skip in Whitefield?
We will ask you to confirm when you want your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking 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, we endeavour to provide a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for a wasted journey.
Will a Whitefield skip hire company deliver my skip?
As we offer a nationwide waste management service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved companies. These range from small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. All of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
If I want a skip on the road in Whitefield, will I need to have a permit?
This depends upon where the skip is going to be located. You will only need to have a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip will be on your private property, like a driveway or within your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate your skip on private land, it will save you a few pounds.
What will happen to the waste when the skip is picked up?
If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get sorted into several different waste streams, including timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our dedication to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t need to be at home when your skip will be delivered, however it will help. Being home when your skip is being delivered means that you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that the skip is dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to your business premises, we will appreciate your assistance during delivery, particularly if gates will restrict the lorry’s access.
However, if you can’t be around during delivery, you don’t need to worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and we will arrange things from there.
What are the different skip sizes to pick from?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Whitefield, you will have various sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact skip is great for small household clearances and DIY tasks.
Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their large capacity also makes them great for house clearances including large items such as furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for people with even larger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for light materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
For more details about the different sizes available, such as dimensions, check out our guide to skip sizes.
What skip sizes have a drop door?
Generally, most skips can be provided with a drop down door, depending on size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip with a drop door is primarily useful when you are choosing a large builder’s skip, since it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for midi and mini skips, as they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What waste can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill up your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.
What you put in the skip depends on which size you have ordered, because there is a weight limit. For example, if you are using the skip for heavy construction waste including bricks or top soil, the biggest size you would be able to get is an 8 cubic yard.
Some materials can not be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.
