Our smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip great for small DIY projects and domestic clearances. A common choice for larger projects, renovations and building work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

Can I put all types of rubbish in the skip?
You are able to load your skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include wood, garden soil, bricks, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on which skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy construction wastes like concrete or soil, the largest size you could get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Can I put electronic items in the skip?
No, you cannot throw old or unwanted electronic waste products in your skip. This can include items like laptops, hobs, tumble dryers, freezers and computer monitors. Electric items can’t be disposed of in a skip as they can have dangerous materials and components.
Due to the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot be sent to landfill and must be recycled.
What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Winsford?
Ordering a skip in Winsford through us is incredibly easy. Choose the skip size you will need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How large is the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip may be the best solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, determined by what sizes they provide.
2 cubic yards is probably the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Price depends on the actual size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and shed clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Winsford?
The price of hiring a skip in Winsford depends on the size of skip you need. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY jobs and general tidyups. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 cubic yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The charge will also increase if you need to have the skip positioned on the highway, since you will need a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we offer a nationwide skip service, we utilise a comprehensive network of approved businesses. These vary from small local skip hire companies to nationwide waste management providers. Our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental requirements.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can have your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is fully loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
Do all skips come with a drop down door?
If you are hiring a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is great for getting rid of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be pushed in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, however they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally small enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you need a drop door for your job, let us know when placing your order. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip which has a drop door is provided.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be in when it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you want it. The same is applicable if you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.
On the other hand, if this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to stress. Simply tell us when you are placing your order, and then we will take care of the rest.
Am I allowed to fill up my skip higher than the top?
It is very important never to overload your skip, as you risk being told to take off surplus waste prior to it being collected. Regardless of what size you order, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, as transporting an overloaded skip can be dangerous, as objects could fall and cause injury or damage to others.
To avoid this problem, please be sure you order a skip size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have further rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
Where will my waste go when the skip is collected?
Once your skip is full and prepared for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste streams, including timber, cardboard, paper, etc. This means that as much of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
Do you deliver skips across Cheshire?
Of course, we can offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can deliver our range of skips to areas across Cheshire, including Winsford, Middlewich, Northwich and Frodsham. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is probably the most common skip used throughout the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building work, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest size which can be used for hefty waste materials like garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
How soon can you deliver a skip in Winsford?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery area, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Winsford?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not need to have a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.
If you do need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on your own property, it will save you some money.
