Blairgowrie and Rattray Skip Hire FAQs

Do you deliver skips across Perth and Kinross?

Absolutely. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management providers, we are able to deliver skips to both domestic and business customers across Perth and Kinross and anywhere else in the UK.

What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are substantial industrial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that produce large amounts of waste materials.

Where does the waste be taken to when the skip is collected?

The contents of your skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and by hand into various waste materials, like metal, paper, stone and timber. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to increase the amount which can be reused and recycled. Our goal and commitment is always to maximise recycling and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

What is the process of ordering a skip in Blairgowrie and Rattray?

Ordering a skip in Blairgowrie and Rattray through us is incredibly easy. Decide on the skip size you need and then enter a handful of details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to get your skip delivered.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some household rubbish, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal option to tackle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most commonly hired by domestic customers, the mini skip can even tackle smaller commercial jobs.

What size skips have got a drop down door?

Nearly all containers can be provided with a drop door, which makes them much easier to load. However, unfortunately we can’t always guarantee this. If you would like a skip that has a drop-down door, please let us know when placing your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip which has a drop-down door can make it easier to load rubbish into the bin, especially with weighty materials, like dirt and gravel, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to put in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Blairgowrie and Rattray?

This depends on where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is put on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip is on private property, like a drive or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can locate your skip on private land, you will save some money.

Can I fill up my skip above the top?

Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will then have to remove any items higher than the level load mark. This means that you cannot make use of sheets of timber, doors or another object, since this will artificially increase the size of the skip. Skip companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that containers are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please be sure to order the appropriate size of skip to meet your requirements and get in contact if you are unsure which size you require. We will be pleased to help.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will make sure your skip will be delivered on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You will need to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will most likely incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work together with a number of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are able to load your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include timber, soil, concrete, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the size you have hired, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using your skip for heavy building wastes such as rubble or soil, the biggest size you would be able to use is the 8 yard skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

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

You don’t need to be at home when your skip is being delivered, however it will help. Being home when the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the driver can be given complete access and that your skip is located exactly where you want it. Likewise, if the skip is delivered to company premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Even so, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you place your order, and we will organise things from there.

How many different skip sizes are available?

Skips come in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold roughly 25 bags of rubbish, which is ideal for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yd is a fantastic option for attic clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant waste disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes used by builders for building waste, including clay and stone. However they can just as well be used for domestic waste such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard skips and commercial 20-40 cubic yard RORO containers. For further info on all the different skip sizes we have available, click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. They are the biggest containers used to dispose of weighty building and construction materials such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of projects. If you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your garden shed, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective option available.

How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?

You can normally keep your skip for up to two weeks from the day that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the collection will be as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection time when you place your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the vast majority of circumstances, it will be the following working day.

It could take a bit longer to pick up your skip over busy times, but we will always try to come as quickly as possible.

Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?

No, you can not dispose of old electrical waste items in a skip. This can include things such as laptops, microwaves, dishwashers, fridges and television sets. Electric objects can’t be disposed of in a skip because they can include hazardous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical items cannot go to landfill and should be reused or recycled.
