Wigton Skip Hire FAQs

How quick can you deliver a skip to Wigton?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Wigton the next working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform will provide you with a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you need a skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Wigton?

Generally, it will be possible to get a skip located on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your property or business. But in order to do this, you have got to have permission from your local council in Wigton, which is called a skip permit. We can arrange this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will charge a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to approve this.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Our standard hire time frame is two weeks from your delivery date. Having said that, when you book your skip, you can select a collection date that is perfect for you. Naturally, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your project will take. So if your skip is full earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will collect it as soon as possible.

We will usually complete collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to remember that this may not be possible during busy times. Once collected, your waste will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do you deliver skips across Cumbria?

As well as delivering skips and containers to Wigton, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Cumbria. With the help of our network of local and national waste management companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Wigton, Grange-over-Sands or Silloth, we have got it covered.

What skip sizes can you supply?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Wigton, you have multiple options to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for small household clearances and DIY tasks.

Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them suitable for household clear ups including bulky objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These sizes are only suited to light waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of garden soil or concrete.

For further information regarding the various capacities available, including dimensions, check out our help guide to skip sizes.

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low-cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal choice to deal with many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to obtaining a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What happens to the waste?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer station in or local to Wigton where we segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic products such as old TVs, freezers, pcs and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.

What waste can I put in the skip?

You can use your skip to discard lots of different waste materials. We are experienced in collecting and processing lots of materials from building work, garden landscaping and house clean-ups. Some examples of permitted waste types include things like:

  • Home furniture
  • Garden trimmings
  • Top soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many different materials will be accepted, and therefore whether you wish to discard furniture, plastic materials, wood or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and materials you throw in the skip will vary based on which size skip you have hired. All skips have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to get rid of soil and rubble, for example, the biggest size you will be allowed to hire is the 8 yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are several waste items which you will not be allowed to dispose of in the skip. The main reason for this is that these products contain hazardous components which may harm the environment. They can also be dangerous to human health, and so they must be disposed of separately under UK law.

A few of the products which are restricted include:

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

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

Nearly all skip sizes can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, unfortunately we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when placing your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, particularly with weighty materials, like soil and bricks, which can be walked in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Wigton?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire companies to supply skips to our clients in Wigton and the rest of the UK. Our partner skip hire providers are verified and evaluated to make sure they satisfy our standards for price, service, recycling and reliability.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip means the size of skip most commonly hired for building and demolition jobs. There are usually two skip sizes that can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, including soil, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other household and commercial waste disposal jobs.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?

It is usually best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your property. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be located precisely where you need it.

The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to transport huge quantities of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are hired for commercial applications. However, household customers can also use them. It is very important take into account the area they will occupy, because they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be used for light waste such as plastics, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and stone.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Wigton?

We have created our booking process with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your delivery postcode to see the range of skip sizes we can supply in Wigton. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and enter the details of where and when you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we’ll send you an email to verify the order once your order is complete!

Is it ok to fill my skip above the level load line?

Make sure you don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will then have to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This also means that you are unable to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips are not overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure you order the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you are unsure which size you need. We would be glad to help.

What is the cost of skip hire in Wigton?
