Winterton Skip Hire FAQs
How long does it take to get a skip in Winterton?
Once your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer a following day delivery service for orders booked prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This is subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (like a street), you need to obtain a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
As a result of several factors that could impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can anticipate it turning up in a morning or afternoon slot.
How long can I keep the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will usually include a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, this provides you with plenty of time to fill the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, if you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just let us know once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Winterton?
Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Winterton. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have the skip located on the street or other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the extra price of the skip permit.
How can I hire a skip?
This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you would like to hire. Let us know whether the skip is going to be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or on local authority property (like the road). After that, pick the day you need the skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your chosen skip to Winterton on the date you have selected.
Which size skips will have a drop door?
In general, most skips can be supplied with a drop-down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop door, please let us know when ordering your skip.
Having a skip that has a drop door is primarily useful when you are hiring a big builder’s skip, since it means that you can wheelbarrow your rubbish into the skip. This isn’t as important for midi and mini skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
What size skips can you supply?
Skips are offered in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is great for small household projects.
The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold around 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yd is an excellent choice for garden shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.
For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to deal with, the builder’s skip could be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and stone. However they can just as well be used for household rubbish such as outdated furniture or kitchen cabinets.
We can also deliver 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip that is hired throughout the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is ideal for most building projects, which is where the name originates from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which you can use for hefty waste such as garden soil, concrete, bricks and rubble.
What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big industrial scale skips used mainly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for organisations that generate significant amounts of waste materials.
Am I able to get rid of electronic products in my skip?
No, you can not throw old electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things like printers, cookers, washing machines, refrigerators and televisions. Electronic items can’t be discarded in a skip since they can include hazardous materials and components.
Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
Will a skip hire company from Winterton deliver my skip?
As we provide a nationwide skip service, we utilise a diverse network of verified and approved businesses. These include small family-run skip hire businesses to nationwide waste management providers. Each of our service providers are vetted to make sure they match our high customer service and environmental principles.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Winterton?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if your skip will be on private property, like a drive or within your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private property, you will save a few pounds.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
Nonetheless, when it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not have to be there when the skip is delivered.
What types of waste am I allowed to get rid of in a skip?
You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly generated from home clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For example, in the event that you will be using the skip for heavy building wastes such as concrete or garden soil, the largest size you could get is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
Do you deliver skips across Lincolnshire?
We offer a UK wide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Winterton, Gainsborough, Heckington, Kirton in Lindsey or another location in Lincolnshire, we are able to help.
Can I fill up the skip above the level load mark?
It is very important never to overload a skip, as you risk being told to take out excess waste before it can be collected. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since moving an overloaded skip is hazardous, as materials could drop and cause injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please be sure to hire a size suitable for your waste removal requirements. If the skip is full but you have some more rubbish to dispose of, we are happy to organise an exchange.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The contents will be sorted into the various waste streams, like timber, metals, paper, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What size is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some household rubbish, a mini skip may be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to take on numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.
Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.
