Burghead Skip Hire FAQs

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know if the skip will be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the street). After that, select the date you would like the skip to get delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Burghead on the day you have selected.

Do I need to be in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in when it is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to company property, especially if gates restrict access.

Having said that, if this isn’t possible, you do not have to worry. Just let us know when you are placing your order, and then we will handle everything.

What is a mini skip?

If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip might be the ideal solution. What size is referred to as a mini skip differs from company to company, depending on what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the actual size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for household tasks like modest DIY projects and garden shed clean ups. If you would like it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

If I want a skip on the road in Burghead, will I need to get a permit?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only require a skip permit if it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your business premises.

Should you have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.

What can I put in the skip?

It is possible to load the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from garage clearances, building work, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This may include timber, top soil, stone, garden trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom fittings.

What you throw in the skip would depend on which size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, when you will be using a skip for heavy building waste like rubble or garden soil, the maximum size you could get is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

A builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be hired to discard weighty construction waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or garden soil.

The builders skip is perfect for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your bathroom or clearing out the loft, these large skips are often the most affordable option available.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Burghead, you have numerous sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as a mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are well suited for house tidy ups including large objects such as furniture and beds.

We will provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for those with even bigger waste disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for lightweight waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.

To get more information regarding the different sizes offered, including measurements, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.

Do all skips come with a drop down door?

The majority of containers can be provided with a drop down door, which makes them easy to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip that has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we will do our best to accommodate.

A skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, particularly with weighty materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to put in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.

Can I put electrical items in the skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical items like old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner.

Can you deliver skips across Moray?

In addition to delivering our range of skips to Burghead, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Moray. With the help of a network of regional and national waste management businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Burghead, Rothes or Lossiemouth, we have got it covered.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip will be delivered on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the very next day.

Although we can’t promise an exact delivery time, we will 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 location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a charge for the wasted trip.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Normally, you can keep a skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t have to hurry through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are huge industrial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for businesses that produce large volumes of waste.

Who will deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Burghead and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire providers are approved and tested to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Is it ok to load up the skip higher than the top?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this makes it hazardous to move, and you will then have to remove any materials higher than the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to use sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will artificially increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty of care to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure to select the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re unsure which size is best. We would be glad to help.
