Dalkeith Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop down door?

Generally, almost all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, as it allows you to wheelbarrow waste into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Dalkeith?

A local skip firm will most likely deliver your skip in Dalkeith. We utilize a network of both regional and national providers to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to be sure they fulfill the high standards we demand when it comes to customer service, price and environmental performance.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Dalkeith?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve asked for. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your order prior to 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver, we strive to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as unsuccessful delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted journey.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is sometimes called a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for attic clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more significant rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip might be the best choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title implies, they are the most frequent sizes ordered by builders for construction waste, such as clay and rubble. But they can equally well be hired for domestic rubbish such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 yard skips and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are large commercial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them excellent for companies that produce significant volumes of waste.

Is it ok to load the skip higher than the level load mark?

It is essential never to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load mark indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it will become very dangerous to move. This means that when you overload your skip, you might be asked to take away the surplus waste. However safe you believe the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be transported to a nearby waste transfer station to be processed. The waste will be sorted into different waste materials, including timber, cardboard, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the rubbish as possible can be recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How large is a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to tackle many tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can equally be positioned on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit.

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

What is the size of a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most frequent skip hired across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, a builder’s skip is perfect for most building and construction projects, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builders skip will be the biggest size which can be used for heavy waste like dirt, concrete, bricks and rubble.

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

It is always best if you can be there when anyone delivers anything to your home. That enables you to make sure there is access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you want it.

The same thing applies for those who have a business. If you have a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not there.

However, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you don’t need to be there when the skip is being delivered.

How long can I hire a skip for?

The cost of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 14 days. Usually, this will provide you with sufficient time to load the skip. However, if you need more time, contact us, and we will see what we can do.

Needless to say, in the event you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a pick up. Just tell us when you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.

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

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate from general rubbish to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electrical goods including tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, tablets and even hair straighteners.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Dalkeith?

In the vast majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you need to receive authorisation from your local authority in Dalkeith, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council will charge a fee for the license, and you should know before placing your order that securing the permit can often take up to 2 working days.

What can I put in the skip?

You are able to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes wood, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a household clearance. Plant and bush clippings, dirt and rock from garden tasks are permitted also. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also go in a skip.

There are, however, a few items that you can’t put in a skip a result of the potential ecological or health risks they may cause.

You are unable to throw out your fridge, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items include hazardous materials in one type or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal waste.

If you want hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to organise an independent collection for this waste. Feel free to contact us for further details. Alternatively, if you are a household customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling centre.
