Aviemore Skip Hire FAQs

How can I order a skip in Aviemore?

This is the easy part. First, select the skip size you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, pick the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our secure online payment system. That is it! We will deliver your skip to Aviemore on the date you have selected.

How big is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often hired for construction projects. There are usually two skip sizes that may be classed as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that can be used to get rid of significant quantities of construction and demolition waste materials, such as garden soil, rubble and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, these can be used for a number of other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

How much will skip hire in Aviemore cost?

The price of getting a skip in Aviemore is determined by the size of skip you want. The least expensive skip available is the 2 yard mini skip, which is ideal for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, like an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The cost will also increase if you want to have your skip on the highway, as you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How soon can you deliver a skip in Aviemore?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the following day.

Although we can’t promise a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to come within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You have to make sure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted journey.

This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and trusted skip hire service.

How large is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to transport huge amounts of waste. Primarily, these containers are used for business purposes. However, residential customers can also hire them. It is essential to look at the area they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they can only be used for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of dirt and stone.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small bins are ideal for small DIY jobs and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are ideal for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from house furnishings and broken baby toys to paving blocks and concrete. With a volume of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make numerous trips to the local recycling centre.

What will happen to the rubbish?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets sorted into a number of waste types, such as wood, metals and plastic materials. This helps to ensure as much of the rubbish will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

How long can I hire the skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to rush through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as soon as possible.

Am I allowed to fill up my skip higher than the level load mark?

I’m afraid not. You can only fill your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up over this line would make it dangerous to transport, and you might be asked to remove the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is always best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then be sure the skip lorry has full access and that the skip will be positioned exactly where you want it. This also applies for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.

Having said that, when this isn’t achievable, you don’t need to worry. Just tell us when you are making your booking, and then we will handle the rest.

What sizes do skips come in?

Skips come in a wide range of different sizes to suit various waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small residential tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can hold around 35 bin bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is often called a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for shed clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal job to sort out, the builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label suggests, they are the most common sizes ordered by builders for building waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more details about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What kinds of rubbish am I allowed to throw in a skip?

You are able to fill up the skip with a wide array of different waste types which are commonly produced from garage clearances, construction work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, dirt, concrete, hedge trimmings, household furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip depends on the skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, in the event that you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes such as rubble or garden soil, the largest size you would be able to hire is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.

Am I allowed to get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered items like television sets, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous waste type and so should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic items have to be segregated from other rubbish. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.

Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Aviemore?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or residence, you will need to obtain permission from your local authority in Aviemore, which is known as a skip permit. If required, we will be glad to arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council does charge a fee for the skip license, and you should be aware before placing your order that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop down door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy materials such as garden soil and stone, which can then be walked into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture easier too.

The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, however this will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
