skip hire faq

 

Please take a look at our Skip Hire FAQ if you have any questions about our service.

 

What size skip do I need?

We have a range of skip sizes for different uses.

If you need more advice on which skip would suit your needs, please get in contact with us.

Please fill out our free quote form. We will then call you back to discuss your requirements and provide you with a quote.

 

Do I have to be located in North Wales to hire a skip?

Yes, we currently only provide services for skip hire in North Wales.

 

How do I pay?

Our helpful and efficient sales staff will discuss payment with you when providing you with a quote.

 

How long  after I have ordered will it take to get to me?

Generally it will arrive the next day or sometimes same day, but this depends on your location and the time of order.

Although in some circumstances a permit may be required. We would need prior warning in this situation as this process can take up to 3 days.

 

How will my skip arrive?

We normally deliver your skip via large LGV skip Lorries. We do have alternative methods for more awkward locations. Ideally, your drive needs to be a minimum of 2.75 metres wide for a normal skip truck. We will enquire about the conditions of the location when the skip is being ordered, so please let us know about any access issues.

 

Where can the skips be placed?

We will place your skip in the best position to suit your need. This could be on your driveway or on the road. If you want to place a skip on the road then you will need a permit from your local council. The council will need at least 3 days notice when applying for permits.

 

When do I need a permit?

Permits are required for skips that are placed on public land or the highway, by most local councils. We will advise you on whether you need a permit for your skip and in most cases we can arrange this for you, although some local councils will require you to apply for the permit.

 

What can I put in it?

Skips are for general waste (house/garage rubbish), garden waste and inert waste (soil,stone & gravel).

 

What can I not put in it?

-Paint, oils or any other liquids (empty / washed out tins are acceptable)

-Asbestos sheeting or fibres

-Tyres

-Fridges and freezers

How long can I keep the skip?

Our standard skip hire lasts for 7 days.  When ordering your skip we can discuss how long you will need it and we can alter this to fit your requirements. If you require a permit to allow your skip to be placed on public land, this can be arranged for a maximum of 14 days.

 

Will the skip damage my drive?

While we will take every care possible to avoid damaging your drive, it is possible that skips can damage block paved and soft tarmac drives when skips are placed on them. Heavy duty skips, which use stabilising equipment, could also cause damage to softer driveways.

 

What if I’m not finished by pick-up day?

If you are going to need the skip for an extended period of time then please let us know. If you require an extension on a permit, the skip may need to be removed during the process.
