Dingwall Skip Hire FAQs

How fast can you deliver a skip to Dingwall?

Once your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We will usually offer you a next day delivery service for orders arranged prior to 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, since to go on public property (for example a road), you will have to get a skip permit which will take a couple of days to organise.

Due to several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. However, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it to be delivered within a AM or PM slot.

Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?

Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be provided with a hinged door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you require a drop door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a big builder’s skip, since it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are small enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What will happen to the waste in my skip?

Once you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility either in or local to Dingwall where we will segregate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can recycle as much of it as possible.

Do you deliver to other areas in Ross and Cromarty?

Certainly, we provide a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skip sizes to areas across Ross and Cromarty, such as Dingwall, Tain, Alness and Fortrose. So wherever you want a skip to be delivered, we have got it covered.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Dingwall?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work together with a variety of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.

How large is the mini skip?

The mini skip will be the smallest size offered by skip companies and is great for small DIY jobs, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For most firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of waste.

Rather than a 2 yard skip, some firms offer you a 3 yard as their smallest skip. They will refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is branded as a mini skip or not won’t make any difference.

What things can I put in my skip?

Before getting a skip, you must make sure that the type of rubbish you intend to get rid of is allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and cannot be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement which aims to help protect the environment.

Waste types it is possible to discard in your skip include household items like furniture, ceramic tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You may also use your skip to get rid of building and demolition rubbish, including wood, soil, stone, metals and concrete.

Examples of forbidden items include things like electronic products, car tyres, paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. These are all classed as hazardous waste and subsequently must be disposed of separately from your general waste.

What is a builder’s skip?

As the name implies, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for construction and demolition work. There are usually two skip sizes which can be described as being a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to get rid of large quantities of building and demolition waste, like soil, rubble and stone.

Even though they are branded a builders skip, they can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal tasks.

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container that can be used to get rid of huge quantities of waste materials. In most cases, these containers are hired for industrial purposes. However, residential customers may also use them. It is very important take into account the space they will occupy, since they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they should only be utilised for lightweight waste like paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the disposal of garden soil and rubble.

Am I allowed to load up the skip higher than level load line?

I’m afraid not. You must only fill your skip up to the level load line. Loading waste up over this line makes it dangerous to move, and you could be asked to take away the surplus waste before your skip can be collected. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

How can I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you wish to hire. Tell us if the skip is going to be going on private property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (such as the road). Next, pick the day you would like the skip to get delivered. Confirm your order details and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Dingwall on the day you have chosen.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dingwall?

Ideally, you want to have the skip left on a hard surface area. For anyone who is carrying out a residential task, then the driveway is going to be perfect. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither is available, the street or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public land, you need to get a permit from the local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be needed for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge as well as other public property in Dingwall. If this is required, we will request the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for up to 2 weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen collection day when you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare your collection. Normally, this will be the next working day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer during busy periods.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Dingwall?

This is determined by the size you want and if you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the least expensive choice. The most costly and largest choice is the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used primarily in industrial settings.

Can I put electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electronic items including old televisions, fridges, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these objects must be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

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

You don’t have to be home when the skip is being delivered, but it will help. Being in whenever the skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the driver can be given full access and that your skip will be placed exactly where you need it. Similarly, if the skip is being hired to company premises, we will appreciate your help during delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

However, when you can’t be available for delivery, there is no need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will organise things from there.

What skip sizes do you supply?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Dingwall, you will have several sizes to pick from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, will be the smallest option available. This compact skip is excellent for small home clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can hold the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their large capacity also means they are perfect for house tidy ups including bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even bigger waste disposal requirements. These sizes are only suitable for lightweight materials, so they cannot be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
