Carluke Skip Hire FAQs

Do you use local skip hire companies in Carluke?

We use a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Carluke and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner firms are approved and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

How long am I allowed to keep a skip for?

The fee for hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to two weeks. Usually, this will give you sufficient time to fill up your skip. However, if you need a bit more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will organise to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as soon as possible.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

If you operate a company in Carluke and want to dispose of substantial amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the biggest waste disposal skips on the market.

As the label suggests, these containers can be rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to conventional skips, that are lifted by using chains.

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most frequently used for construction work. There are generally two skip sizes which can be labelled as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition waste, including earth, rubble and bricks.

Although labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other domestic and industrial waste disposal tasks.

Where will the waste be taken to once the skip is collected?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Carluke where we segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.

Am I able to throw all sorts of rubbish in a skip?

You are allowed to fill your skip with a variety of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, garden soil, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom suites.

What you throw in your skip will depend on the size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy building wastes including stone or dirt, the largest size you could get is an 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in a skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials are considered hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.

Will you deliver skips across Lanarkshire?

We offer a nationwide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local partners. So whether you want skip hire in Carluke, Bellshill, Uddingston, Lanark or another area in Lanarkshire, we are able to assist.

What size skips can you supply?

Skips come in a number of different sizes to match different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is good for small domestic tasks.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is an excellent choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant rubbish disposal job to undertake, a builder’s skip could be the best choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, they are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, such as clay and hardcore. But they can just as well be hired for domestic waste such as broken furniture or kitchen units.

We can also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Carluke?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or house, you will need to receive permission from your local authority in Carluke, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to organise this for you, so it’s one less point to think about. The local authority does charge a fee for your permit, and you should be aware before booking that obtaining the licence can sometimes take up to two working days.

Is it okay to fill my skip above the level load line?

You must not load your skip beyond the level load mark. When you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste prior to it being picked up.

What is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, 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 handle many tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

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

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be provided when requested, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the very next day.

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

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

How much will skip hire in Carluke cost?

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

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

Using a skip that has a drop door will make filling rubbish into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials like soil or hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items such as household furniture a lot easier also.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when placing your order if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to deliver this.

Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electronic products such as washing machines, televisions, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.

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

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

Having said that, in the event you can’t be available for delivery, don’t worry. We simply ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will arrange things from there.
