Dalbeattie Skip Hire FAQs
What is the size of a builders skip?
The builders skip is regarded as the common skip which is used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builder’s skip is ideal for most building tasks, which is where the label stems from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest option that can be used for hefty materials like dirt, concrete, rock and rubble.
What will happen to the rubbish when the skip is collected?
When you have finished with your skip, we come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Dalbeattie where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ensure your skip is delivered when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we are not able to guarantee a precise delivery time, we will do our very best to arrive within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.
It is important to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What is the process of hiring a skip in Dalbeattie?
Hiring a skip in Dalbeattie through us is incredibly straightforward. Select the skip size you require and then input a couple of details about when and where you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.
Am I able to put electrical items in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products have to be kept separate from general rubbish to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely. This includes all electric powered products like tumble dryers, monitors, toasters, laptops and even hairdryers.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Dalbeattie?
In the majority of situations, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you need to receive authorisation from your local authority in Dalbeattie, which is called a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The council will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should be aware before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.
How long can I hire the skip for?
You can in most cases keep your skip for as long as 14 days from your delivery date. You can give a chosen pick up day when you confirm your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and then we will prepare the collection. Generally, this will be the next business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer during hectic times.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is delivered?
It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your home. That enables you to ensure there is access for the delivery, plus the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Will a skip hire company from Dalbeattie deliver my skip?
To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service throughout the UK, we work in partnership with a number of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.
Do you deliver skips across The Stewartry of Kirkcudbright?
Yes. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we can supply skips to residential and industrial customers across The Stewartry of Kirkcudbright and elsewhere within the UK.
What can I put in my skip?
You are able to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly produced from home clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This could include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip will depend on which size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight limit. For example, when you are using a skip for heavy building wastes like stone or top soil, the maximum size you could get is the 8 cubic yard.
Some materials cannot be disposed of in a skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, car tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and therefore need to be disposed of separately.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
It is important not to overload your skip, as you run the risk of being told to take off surplus waste before it can be collected. Regardless of the size you hire, you are only permitted to fill them to a level load. This is a safety requirement, since transporting an overloaded bin can be hazardous, as objects could drop and lead to personal injury or damage to other people.
To avoid this problem, please ensure that you hire a size appropriate for your waste removal needs. If the skip is full and you have extra rubbish to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
What is the cost of hiring a skip in Dalbeattie?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Dalbeattie, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to order. If your skip is going to be on the highway or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Having a skip which has a drop door will make filling waste into it so much easier. This is particularly the case with heavy waste such as soil or rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky items like furniture much easier also.
The majority of skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, however this may sometimes depend on your location and availability. Let us know when you make your online order if a door is required, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.
How big is the mini skip?
If you are looking for a cheap skip to dispose of some household waste, the mini skip could be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with numerous jobs.
The mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be positioned on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.
Although most frequently chosen by household customers, the mini skip can even handle small commercial jobs.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
If you operate a company in Dalbeattie and want to get rid of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container could be a fantastic choice. Available in 20 – 40 cubic yards, these are the biggest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the label implies, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, unlike normal skips, that are lifted using chains.
What are the different skip sizes to select from?
This site offers a whole variety of skip sizes to residential and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all needs – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the huge 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the various sized skips you can choose from, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each size can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
