Wisbech Skip Hire FAQs

Will a skip hire company from Wisbech deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

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

You don’t really need to be at home when your skip is going to be delivered, however it can help. Being in when your skip arrives means you can ensure the driver is given full access and that your skip can be placed exactly where you need it. Likewise, if your skip is being hired to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

However, in the event you can’t be around during the time of delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will organise everything from there.

Is it possible to have a skip with a drop down door?

Getting a skip that has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into the skip much easier. This is especially the case with heavy waste materials such as garden soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading large bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste will get separated into a number of waste types, which includes wood, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the waste can be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our dedication to environmental protection by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a huge container that can be used to transport large quantities of waste materials. Generally, these containers are hired for business purposes. Having said that, residential customers can also use them. You will need to take into account the space they will occupy, because they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they can only be utilised for light waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and stone.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, that provides you with plenty of time to load the skip. However, if you need a little more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Naturally, if you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in the skip?

No, you can not dispose of old or unwanted electrical waste products in your skip. This can include such things as computers, microwaves, dishwashers, freezers and tv sets. Electronic items can’t be disposed of in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Due to the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot go to landfill and should be recycled.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip firms and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, shed clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 black bags worth of waste.

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

What is the cost of skip hire in Wisbech?

The cost of getting a skip in Wisbech will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, such as an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also be more if you want to have a skip placed on the highway, since you will require a skip permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

How fast can you deliver a skip in Wisbech?

We can typically supply skips to Wisbech the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

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

Can I pile up the waste in my skip?

It is essential to never overload your skip. You should not pass the level load line that is indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you could be asked to take off the excess rubbish. Regardless of how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is dangerous and is prohibited.

What things can I put in the skip?

Prior to ordering your skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste you need to get rid of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some products and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types you can throw in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and plastics. You could also use a skip to dispose of building and construction rubbish, such as old bricks, top soil, stone, metals and gravel.

Some examples of restricted items include electronic goods, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all classed as hazardous waste materials and therefore must be discarded separately from general waste.

If I would like a skip on the road in Wisbech, will I need a permit?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a permit when it is put on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip will be on your private property, such as a drive or within your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on private land, it will save you some money.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly used for building and demolition projects. There are usually two different sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips which you can use to dispose of significant amounts of building and demolition waste, including earth, concrete and bricks.

Although branded a builders skip, these can be used for various other household and industrial waste disposal jobs.
