Wilmslow Skip Hire FAQs

How can I order a skip in Wilmslow?

This is the easy part. First, pick the size of skip you want to hire. Tell us if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the street). Next, pick the day you need the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment using our secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Wilmslow on the date you have chosen.

How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?

You can typically have your skip for as many as two weeks from the delivery date. You may give a chosen collection day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will plan your collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during hectic times.

Is it okay to fill up my skip higher than the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to transport, and you will probably be asked to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This means you can not use sheets of wood, doors or another object, since this will increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you choose the appropriate size of skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size is best. We would be pleased to help.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

You don’t have to be home when your skip is delivered, however it can help. Being home whenever the skip is due for delivery means that you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip is dropped exactly where you need it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your help during the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, for those who can’t be available for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

Do I require approval to get a skip delivered on the road in Wilmslow?

Normally, it will be possible to have a skip positioned on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to get this done, you will need to have permission from the local council in Wilmslow, which is known as a skip permit. We are able to order this for you, so you don’t need to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take up to 24-48 hours for them to authorise this.

What is a roll-on roll-off container?

A roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are mainly for business use but can be hired by household customers also. However, you will want plenty of space since these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger when compared to the average skip you will see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suited to getting rid of concrete and bricks.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Wilmslow?

The cost of hiring a skip in Wilmslow is determined by the size of skip you require. The lowest priced option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and general clearances. If you need a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The cost will also be more if you want to have your skip placed on the highway, as you will need a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Do you deliver to other areas in Cheshire?

Certainly. We deliver skips to cities, towns and villages across the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can supply skips to both household and commercial customers across Cheshire and elsewhere in the UK.

Where does the waste go when the skip is picked up?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into several different waste types, such as timber, soil and plastic materials. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste is recycled as possible. We are proud of our dedication to the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for building and construction jobs. There are usually two sizes that can be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers that can be used to get rid of large volumes of construction and demolition materials, like dirt, rubble and rock.

Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.

What waste materials am I allowed to put in my skip?

Prior to ordering a skip, it is important to make sure that the sort of rubbish you want to dispose of will be allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials must be kept separate and are not allowed to be mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you may discard in a skip include home items like furniture, ceramic tiles, kitchen cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition waste, such as old bricks, top soil, rubble, metals and concrete.

Some examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, tyres, old paint, chemical substances, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and subsequently must be disposed of separately from general rubbish.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Wilmslow?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can supply customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Can I have a skip which has a drop door?

Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon the size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly helpful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, because they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

How long does it take to get a skip in Wilmslow?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Wilmslow the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking platform offers you a variety of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you would like your skip to arrive asap or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

How large is the mini skip?

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

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

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

Am I allowed to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This includes things such as laptops, cookers, washing machines, fridges and televisions. These products can’t be thrown in a skip since they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic goods cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.

Other areas covered include Frodsham, Northwich, Chester, Lymm, Macclesfield, Warrington, Alsager and Congleton.
