We have recently using J Dickenson's for our general waste and all recycling after them being recommended to me. I've had brilliant service from the start. Nicola was fab from day one and make setting up the account very easy… More and she's always at the phone if we need. I upped the frequency of my collections after a couple of weeks and this happened quickly with no problems. No issues with collections either, fab company!
I used J Dickinson & Sons twice in the same month. They were by far the best value on the market. Lucy in the office gave great customer service, that's why i used them twice and wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend… More them. They rang to tell me they what time they would be dropping of the skip too which was really helpful. When i need the skip to be collected i rang the office back and they collected the next day. Very professional and easy to use . Would highly recommend
What a great service right from Lucy in the office to the drivers. Nothing is too much trouble for them, very professional and great on price to boot. What is there not to like? I’ve had four skips in the last six weeks and all on time… More delivered and pickup. Well done lads( and Lucy)!
Frequently Asked Questions
How much is a skip?
Generally, the larger the skip you require, the more you’ll have to pay. You’ll also pay more depending on how long you want to hire the skip. At J Dickinson & Sons, we can save you money by covering the cost of delivery for your skip.
Bear in mind, though, if you don’t have enough room on your premises for a skip and need to park it on the road, you will require a permit from your local council. We can arrange this for you when you book your skip
Permit prices vary depending on your local council. If you’re unsure if you need a permit and want to find out how much it’ll cost, please don’t hesitate in asking us when you call to book your skip.
What can you put in a skip?
Here’s a break down of the types of waste we accept and do not accept in our skips:
We do not accept:
Electrical appliances & equipment
Gas canisters and gas bottles
Hazardous & toxic materials
If you’re still unsure, don’t hesitate to give us a call on 01204 696 446 and we’d be happy to give you more details.
What size skip do I need?
This depends on the job you need a skip for in the first place.
For example, if you need to hire a skip for a small household job, a 3 cubic yard skip will be ample.
But for a large, heavy-duty building project, an 8 cubic yard bucket skip would be more fit for purpose. In short, it all depends on the job.
Lastly, it’s important to make sure you have enough waste to put in your skip before you hire it. Otherwise, you risk paying over the odds for a skip you don’t really need.
How long will it take to deliver my skip?
Here at J Dickinson & Sons, we aim to arrange a next-day delivery service upon request. Simply speak to a member of our team to confirm a delivery date and time that best suits you.
Is hiring a skip good for the environment?
Absolutely. And as part of our ambition to achieve zero landfill, we aim to recycle 100% of the waste we sort. So, by hiring a skip from us you’re doing your bit to help the environment too.
