Below are examples of typical questions we get regarding our skip hire services.
Cullen Skip Hire FAQs
Will you deliver to other areas in Banffshire?
Certainly, we offer a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can supply our range of skips to areas throughout Banffshire, such as Cullen, Dufftown, Charlestown of Aberlour and Buckie. So no matter where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When your skip is ordered, we will do our best to deliver it to you on a day that best suits you. We can typically give a following day delivery service for orders made prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having your skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (such as a road), you will have to get a skip permit which may take a couple of days to organise.
Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never promise an exact delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can expect it to be delivered in a morning or afternoon slot.
How do you hire a skip online?
Ordering a skip in Cullen with us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you require and input a handful of details about where and when you need your skip to be delivered. You then pay for your skip using our secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.
How much waste will fit in the mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip offered by skip firms and is good for small DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, that will hold the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.
Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring a skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.
What happens to the rubbish in the skip?
When 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 different waste materials, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This helps to ensure that the maximum amount of the waste as possible will be recycled, which is much better for the environment.
How much will skip hire in Cullen cost?
The price of getting a skip in Cullen depends on the size of skip you want. The least expensive option available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY jobs and clearances. If you want a larger skip, like an 8 yard builder’s skip, it will naturally cost more. The cost will also be more if you need to have your skip placed on the road, as you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Typically, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.
Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful when hiring a big builder’s skip, because it lets you wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not so important for mini and midi skips, as they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Will a skip hire company from Cullen deliver my skip?
To provide a complete skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to make sure we are able to supply customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Am I allowed to put all kinds of rubbish in my skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of rubbish in the skip. This includes timber, tile, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are permitted as well. Worktops and units from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are things that can’t be put in a skip because of the potential environment or health risks they might cause.
You are unable to throw out your fridge, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things contain hazardous elements in one kind or another. They should be disposed of separately from your general rubbish.
Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to arrange an independent collection for this waste. Please email us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How many different skip sizes are there?
We provide a whole range of skip sizes to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to match all needs – from the modest 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different skip sizes on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags

What is a builder’s skip?
The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that they are the most common sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suited to numerous types of domestic and commercial jobs. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for heavy builders waste like soil, rubble and concrete.
Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Cullen?
In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the road, 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 home, you will need to secure permission from your local council in Cullen, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, therefore it’s one less thing to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, and you should be aware before ordering that obtaining the permit will often take up to two working days.
How long am I able to hire the skip for?
You can normally keep the skip for as many as 14 days from the delivery date. It is possible to give a chosen collection day when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise your collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.
Can I fill the skip higher than the level load line?
It is important not to overload a skip, as you risk being told to take off excessive waste before it can be collected. Irrespective of what size you hire, you are only able to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, as moving an overloaded skip will be unsafe, as objects could drop and cause injury or damage to other people.
To prevent this issue, please ensure that you order a size suitable for your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full but you have more rubbish to dispose of, we are pleased to organise an exchange.
Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering the skip. Provided that we are able to access the place you want it delivered, we will manage everything.
In the event you are not going to be at home, just let us know any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be positioned on a particular part of the driveway. Alternatively, you may need to make sure the skip does not prevent use of your garage.
No matter what the case might be, tell us when ordering, and we will ensure your instructions are passed to the lorry driver.
What is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you have a business in Cullen and need to get rid of large amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off skip could be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal containers that can be hired.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are picked up using chains.
Am I allowed to put electronic items in the skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric goods must be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric goods like washing machines, TVs, toasters, computers and even hairdryers.
