Arbroath Skip Hire FAQs
How much waste can a builder’s skip hold?
As the name suggests, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most frequently supplied for construction jobs. There are usually two sizes that may be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of significant volumes of construction and demolition waste, like earth, rubble and stone.
Although branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal jobs.
Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than level load line?
It is vital never to overload the skip. You should not pass the level load mark shown along the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it can be very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload the skip, you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Arbroath?
Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are doing a household project, then a drive is going to be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public land, you need to obtain a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be placed on the street, grass verge or any other public property in Arbroath. If this is required, we will arrange for the license to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the price of your skip.
Do you deliver skips across Angus?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages throughout the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can deliver skips to household and business customers across Angus and anywhere else in the UK.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will usually have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that will provide you with sufficient time to fill up the skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.
Of course, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will organise to send out one of our lorry drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station in or local to Arbroath where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (timber, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.
Can I put all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
You are allowed to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from house clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, furniture, toys, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.
What you put in your skip would depend on the skip size you have hired, as there is a weight limit. For example, in the event that you are using your skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or top soil, the largest size you can use is the 8 yard builders skip.
Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.
Can I put electrical items in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical goods like cookers, monitors, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
What size is the mini skip?
For those who have a small quantity of waste to dispose of, a mini skip might be the perfect option. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is considered the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the actual size you order, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for residential jobs including modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
What skip sizes have got a drop down door?
Virtually all skip sizes can be supplied with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.
A skip with a drop-down door makes it easier to load materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, like dirt and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky items, such as household furniture.
Will a skip hire company from Arbroath deliver my skip?
To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.
How quickly can you deliver a skip to Arbroath?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we will typically have your skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will deliver, we endeavour to provide you with an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will result in a fee for a wasted trip.
What size roll-on roll-off containers do you provide?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for companies that generate large volumes of waste.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Arbroath?
Our goal is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Arbroath. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container. If you wish to have your skip located on the street or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the extra cost of the skip permit.
How do you order a skip in Arbroath?
Ordering a skip should not be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as simple as possible. First, type in your address to see all the different skips we can deliver to Arbroath. Select which size you wish to order, and confirm whether it will be dropped on private property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.
As soon as your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with all of your booking information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip will be delivered?
When you are having a skip delivered to your home, it is best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can be sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip is placed precisely where you need it. This also is applicable if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates limit access.
Having said that, if that is not feasible, you don’t have to worry. Simply tell us when placing your order, and we will take care of everything.
