Armadale Skip Hire FAQs

How much waste will a builders skip hold?

The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. The name comes from the fact that these are the most frequent sizes that are hired by general builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are suited to a wide variety of household and industrial projects. These are the largest skips which you can use for heavy builders waste such as soil, rubble and concrete.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip should not be difficult. This is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your address to view all the different skip sizes we can deliver to Armadale. Choose the size you want to order, and confirm whether it is going to be located on your own property. Enter your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

Once your order is complete, we will send you a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to put electronic products in the skip?

Electronic items such as television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electrical goods have to be segregated from other waste. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How long will it take to get a skip in Armadale?

We can usually supply skips to Armadale the following working day when your order is confirmed before 3pm. This applies to purchases made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system offers you a variety of delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive ASAP or would like to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s no problem.

What size roll-on roll-off skips are available?

If you operate a company in Armadale and wish to get rid of substantial volumes of light waste, a roll-on roll-off skip may be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers on the market.

As the name indicates, these type of containers can be rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to normal skips, that are picked up using chains.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?

It usually is a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your property. That allows you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned just where you need it.

The same applies if you have a business. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Armadale?

If possible, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is doing a household project, then the driveway is going to be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge could be your only option. 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 dropped on a street, grass verge or any other public property in Armadale. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra charge, paid to the local authority, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the top?

No, you must only fill up the skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up over this line makes it dangerous to transport, and you could be told to remove the extra waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

What things can I put in the skip?

You are able to fill your skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, top soil, concrete, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, when you are using the skip for heavy construction waste including concrete or top soil, the largest size you can use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.

Will a skip hire company from Armadale deliver my skip?

We utilise a network of both regional and nationwide skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Armadale and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to make certain they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling and reliability.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to deal with many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

Will my skip come with a drop door?

If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop door. This is made for getting rid of heavy building and demolition waste, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also have a drop down door, however these are generally less common. This is because these sizes are typically low enough on the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our best to ensure a container which has a drop door is delivered.

What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?

If your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish will get segregated into a variety of waste streams, which includes timber, metals and paper. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
