What Are Skip Hire Licenses?

Regardless whether you’re looking for Bolton skip hire or skip hire Leyland; Lostock Skip Hire is your go-to supplier of affordable skips.

We provide a complete range of skips to suit the requirements of domestic and commercial projects. Finding a suitable skip is the easy part, it’s disposing of waste correctly that’s considered to be difficult, however, this needn’t be the case with Lostock Skip Hire!

In order to dispose of your waste effectively, you need to make sure that you’ve considered all relevant factors, hence why you need a skip hire license.

Who is eligible for a skip hire permit?

Whether you’re looking for skip hire Bolton or skip hire Chorley, you will need a skip hire license if you plan to store your skip on the side of the kerb.

If you’re not entirely sure as to whether you need a skip hire permit for your Bolton skip hire, you may want to contact your local council. Your local council will provide you with a detailed explanation of the requirements of law and ensure that you have all of the necessary documentation if a permit is required.

Storing skips on the road.

Not everyone has access to a driveway. If you have limited space available within your premises, leaving the skip on the road is your only option. The safest place to keep a skip is on your private property, not only is it out of the way of fly-tippers but it saves you having to transport all of your waste through the garden. Leaving your skip on the road needs to be safe, you obtain a permit to state that you’re liable for the skip and the contents inside.

A domestic skip that’s stored on the road will need to be well-lit during periods of darkness to prevent any hazards from arising.

Failure to obtain a permit.

A skip hire license is provided to meet stringent rules and regulations. If you choose not to obtain a skip license from Lostock Skip Hire your skip could be removed and you could well be presented with a fine.

Obtaining a permit is the safest option. You’ll be able to dispose of your waste safely and legally, without making any compromises. With the permit being so easy to obtain from the local authority, there’s no excuse not to get one!

Here at Lostock Skip Hire, we can also obtain the skip license on your behalf- saving you the hassle, however, this will be included within the markup price of your skip hire.

Planning in advance.

Before you hire a skip, you need to be sure that you find out all there is to know about skip licenses before you consider skip hire Chorley. It can take up to 4 days for the permit to arrive, so we recommend you plan carefully to ensure that it arrives in sufficient time.

As well as this, the prices vary depending on your location. In addition to this, the cost of a license for our commercial skips will be greater than that of a domestic skip but will provide you with peace of mind. Skip permits are priced suitably for an array of budgets, however, some councils price them cheaper than others.

Once you’ve acquired your skip license, you’re ready to start your efficient waste disposal. Should you need any further information, we are always on hand to provide you with any advice and support that you need, along with free delivery and collection of skips.

Brilliant service from Adam today with a skip. I have worked on the industry for over 20 years and this has been the easiest skip company I have worked with. They dropped it off when said and picked it up with a time we discussed. Thank you Adam. I will definitely be using you again.

Lucy was so helpful in choosing a skip and the whole process was very quick and easy from start to finish. We had previously heard some stories from friends where other skip companies let them down on the pickup date, leaving them blocked in on their driveways, but Lucy reassured me of the pick up time and did not let me down. Everything went as planned and was a smooth process from start to finish. The price was decent for a 4 yard skip and the gentleman who dropped it off was very clear on what could be in the skip too. Thankyou very much!!read more

Would highly recommended this skip company. Was in desperate need of a skip at short notice due to drainage problems and this company worked to re-jiggle the days diary to get one to me the same day despite calling after 8am on a Saturday morning!! Saved me having piles of mess in my garden over bank holiday weekend... cannot thank you enough and will be using you again in the future. Good advice on skip sizes and prices too ☺read more
