Biggar Skip Hire FAQs
What is the process of ordering a skip in Biggar?
Ordering a skip in Biggar through us is incredibly simple. Select the skip size you want and enter a few details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Biggar?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your drive, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you have got to secure authorisation from your local authority in Biggar, which is called a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your permit, plus you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can often take up to two working days.
Can I fill the skip higher than the top?
It is important to never overfill your skip. You must not pass the level load line that is shown along the side of the skip. If the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to transport. This means that if you overload the skip, you might be required to take away the excess waste. No matter how safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be unsafe and is therefore not allowed.
Do I need to be at home when the skip will be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be available when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you want it.
The same thing applies for those who have a company. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.
What types of waste can you put in a skip?
You can fill the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building work, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This could include timber, dirt, rubble, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, if you will be using a skip for heavy building waste like bricks 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 refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are considered hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
Usually, you can have the skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. If you have finished 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 get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.
Do you deliver skips across Lanarkshire?
We provide a UK wide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Biggar, Hamilton, Larkhall, Coatbridge or any other site in Lanarkshire, we can assist.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
For anybody who is selecting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip by using a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, although they are more uncommon. This is because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you prefer a drop door for your job, let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.
Where will you take the waste from my skip?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be separated into the various waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip may be the perfect solution. What size is described as a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they have.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 yard container as their smallest option. The cost depends on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for household tasks such as small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and want room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.
How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?
As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most commonly supplied for building and construction jobs. There are usually two different sizes that can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of large amounts of construction and demolition waste, including dirt, concrete and rock.
Even though they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial size skips used primarily within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for organisations that generate large volumes of waste.
When will my skip be delivered?
When you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed when going through the online order process.

Am I able to dispose of electrical items in my skip?
No, you cannot put old or broken electrical waste products in a skip. This includes things such as laptops, microwaves, tumble dryers, fridges and tv sets. Electronic items can’t be thrown in the skip as they can contain dangerous materials and components.
As a result of the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electronic items cannot be sent to landfill and must be reused or recycled.
