Frequently Asked Questions
Which skip will suit my needs?
Our Blackrod skip hire specialists have a wide range of waste containers available at any one time. This means that our services are suitable for almost any project, whatever its size or complexity.
If you’re undertaking a small to medium home renovation, you may only need a skip of 2 cubic yards. Larger domestic waste removal jobs might call for 4 yard or 8 yard models.
On the other hand, if you are working on a commercial or industrial project, you may wish to choose from 8 or 10 yard enclosed skips, 22-40 yard roll on roll off skips and enclosed compactor bins, depending on your requirements.
Naturally, the type of container you choose depends on the amount of waste you need to remove as well as the amount of room available.
You can, of course, order a series of skips – one after the other – if you do not have sufficient space for your ideal size of container. However, it’s a good idea to hire the largest skip possible each time to reduce the number of removals and save money as a result.
If you are unsure of the precise type of skip you need, there is no need to worry – simply get in touch with our specialists and we’ll be able to offer you valuable advice.
If you overfill your container, we might not be able to remove it when required, and you may be required to pay an additional charge. Please bear this in mind when arranging skip hire in Blackrod.
Can my skip be placed roadside?
If you do not have enough private land on which to place your ideal skip, you may be able to arrange to have it dropped off on a public road as long as it does not block access or present any severe risk.
In order to do this, you need permission from your local council. This isn’t something you’ll need to do yourself – our skip hire services in Blackrod include applications for skip permits – we’ll contact the council on your behalf with all the information required.
All you’ll need to do is pay the required charge and we’ll do the rest.
The cost of a permit depends on the precise location of your skip and the length of time you expect it to remain in situ. Lancashire County Council permits cover skip hire lasting up to four weeks, so if you need to hire a second skip, you’ll need to apply for permission a second time.
If you do not receive permission to place your skip roadside, you may face a significant fine.
It is important that all refuse placed in a skip is properly secured when it is placed roadside. Failure to do this may result in debris being blown dangerously across the road. You may wish to cover a roadside skip – not just to prevent this from happening, but also to stop passersby from filling it up with their own waste.
If you’re not sure whether your chosen area is suitable for a skip, feel free to ask our experts for advice. We’ll be more than happy to help you.
