Wickham Market Skip Hire FAQs

How do you hire a skip in Wickham Market?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be difficult. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, enter your postcode to see all the different skips we are able to deliver to Wickham Market. Choose the size you wish to hire, and confirm if it will be dropped on private property. Enter in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

As soon as your order is complete, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Wickham Market?

Our goal is to offer the cheapest skip hire service in Wickham Market. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It varies from the mini skip, which is the lowest priced option, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you wish to have a skip located on the highway or other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.

Can I put electronic items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops or computers, cookers, dishwashers, fridges and monitors. Electric objects can’t be thrown in the skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Wickham Market?

Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that best suits you. We can normally offer you a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip on private property, as to go on public property (for example a street), you will need to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of numerous factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. They are the largest skips that can be used to dispose of weighty building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, gravel or soil.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide array of projects. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing out your garage, these substantial skips tend to be the most cost-effective choice available.

What types of waste materials can I put in the skip?

You may use your skip to throw out a variety of waste types. We are experienced in collecting and handling numerous items generated from building work, garden landscaping and household tidy-ups. Some examples of allowed waste materials include:

  • Furniture
  • Tree cuttings
  • Top soil
  • Stone
  • Bathroom sinks
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

Many different waste types are permitted, and therefore whether you want to discard metals, plastic materials, wood or textiles, we can normally take your rubbish away.

The quantity and things you put in your skip may vary based on which size skip you have hired. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like discard soil and gravel, for example, the biggest size you will be allowed to use would be the 8 yard builders skip.

Are there any items which I can’t discard in the skip?

There are a few materials you will not be permitted to discard in the skip. The main reason for this is that these goods incorporate hazardous components which may be harmful to the environment. They could also be harmful to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately within UK legislation.

A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint
  • Solvents Refrigerators
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Do I have to be there when the skip will be delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be located exactly where you need it. This also applies when you have a skip delivered to company property, particularly if gates limit access.

On the other hand, if this is not possible, you do not need to be concerned. Just tell us when placing your booking, and we will handle the rest.

Do all skips have a drop door?

When you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is great for disposing of hefty building and demolition waste, as it can be pushed into the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, though these are generally less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a skip which has a drop door is delivered.

What will happen to the rubbish once the skip is collected?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Wickham Market where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

Can you deliver skips across Suffolk?

Certainly. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we can deliver skips to both residential and commercial customers across Suffolk and elsewhere in the UK.

What size skips do you offer?

We can offer a full-range of skip sizes to match your particular needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip best for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard skip.

For Wickham Market businesses which generate a big volume of bulky waste, we can offer RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you run a company in Wickham Market and wish to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin may be a great choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal containers that you can hire.

As the label implies, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry with a hook, unlike normal skips, which are picked up by using chains.

Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Wickham Market?

Usually, it is possible to have a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you need to have approval from your local council in Wickham Market, which is known as a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load mark?

It is important never to overload the skip. You can not pass the level load line shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it can be very hazardous to move. Which means that when you overfill your skip, you may be asked to take off the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip to be, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This is hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Wickham Market?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

You can usually keep the skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. It is possible to provide a chosen pick up day at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic times.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the smallest skip available from skip firms and is ideal for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can hold the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of waste.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will offer a 3 cubic yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as being a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Other areas covered include Brandon, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket, Acton, Kesgrave, Leiston, Eye and Bungay.
