Cupar Skip Hire FAQs

What is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to get rid of some household waste, the mini skip might be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle numerous jobs.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be situated on the side of the road, subject to receiving a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

Who will deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Cupar and the rest of the country. Each of our partner businesses are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for price, service, recycling and reliability.

What size roll-on roll-off containers do you offer?

If you operate a business in Cupar and need to get rid of substantial quantities of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off container may be a fantastic option. Available in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that can be hired.

As the name indicates, these containers are rolled off and on the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, that are lifted by using chains.

How long can I keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to a fortnight. In most cases, that gives you plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you do need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with your skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange your pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as quickly as possible.

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

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to where you want it positioned, we can take care of everything.

In case you will not be in, simply let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your driveway. Or you may need to make sure the skip doesn’t block access to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, tell us when ordering, and then we will ensure your directions are passed on to the lorry driver.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Cupar?

Our goal is to deliver the most affordable skip hire service in Cupar. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 yard RORO container. If you need to have the skip positioned on the highway or any other council owned property, you will also have to factor in the additional price of a skip permit.

What sizes do skips come in?

When it comes to hiring a skip in Cupar, you have various options to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small household clearances and DIY work.

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

After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. But their substantial capacity also means they are perfect for house clearances involving bulky items like household furniture and beds.

We will supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only suited to light waste, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or concrete.

To get more information regarding the various capacities offered, including measurements, check out our guide to skip sizes.

How do I hire a skip?

Hiring a skip in Cupar through us is very simple. Decide on the skip size you need and enter a few details about when and where you want the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered to you.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We can in most cases deliver skips to Cupar the following working day when your order is made before 3pm. This is applicable to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our simple online booking system offers you a number of delivery dates to pick from. So whether you want a skip delivered ASAP or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not an issue.

What will happen to the waste once the skip is collected?

The waste in your skip will be taken to a nearby waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be segregated by machinery and by hand into different waste streams, including soil, paper, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the quantity of waste that ends up in landfill.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Cupar?

Ideally, you should have the skip dropped on a hard surface. If you are carrying out a residential task, then a drive will be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. On the other hand, if neither option is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will have to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or other public property in Cupar. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An additional charge, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What sort of rubbish am I able to get rid of in a skip?

Your skip can be used to get rid of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and processing a multitude of materials from construction jobs, garden projects and household tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste types include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge trimmings
  • Soil
  • Hardcore
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Kitchen cabinets and units

The majority of materials will be permitted, and so whether you would like to get rid of furniture, plastic materials, timber or unwanted toys, we can usually take your waste away.

The volume and items you put into your skip may vary based on the size skip you have chosen. Skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you would like discard garden soil and gravel, as an example, the largest size you will be permitted to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are some items which you will not be permitted to discard in the skip. The reason behind this is that these products include hazardous components which can be damaging to the environment. They may also be dangerous to human health, and so they need to be disposed of separately under UK legislation.

Some of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint tins
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC monitors
  • Battery packs
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

Am I allowed to dispose of electrical items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical products have to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electronic products such as tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.

Is it ok to fill up 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. Regardless of what size you order, you are only allowed to fill them to a level load. This is a basic safety condition, because moving an overloaded container can be unsafe, as rubbish could drop and cause injury or damage to other people.

To avoid this issue, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste removal requirements. If your skip is full but you have some more waste to get rid of, we are pleased to provide an exchange.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop door?

Virtually all containers can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we can do our very best to accommodate.

Having a skip that has a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as garden soil and concrete, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.

Will you deliver skips across Fife?

We offer a national skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Cupar, Kirkcaldy, Cowdenbeath, Auchtermuchty or another site in Fife, we can help.

What is classed as being a builders 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 classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to get rid of substantial quantities of building and demolition materials, including soil, rubble and stone.

Although branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for many other domestic and business waste disposal tasks.
