Dufftown Skip Hire FAQs

You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and schedule to have your skip delivered to you.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The builder’s skip is probably the most common skip used across the country. Offered in either a 6 or 8 yard capacity, the builder’s skip is fantastic for most building and construction jobs, which is where the label stems from.

The 8 cubic yard builder’s skip will be the largest option which can be used for hefty waste materials such as soil, concrete, bricks and gravel.

Am I allowed to pile up waste in my skip?

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it dangerous to transport, and you will probably have to empty any contents higher than the level load mark. This means that you can not make use of sheets of timber, doors or some other item, since this will increase the size of the skip. Waste management companies have a legal responsibility to ensure that skips are not overloaded or overweight before transporting them.

Please make sure that you choose the appropriate sized skip for your requirements and get in touch if you are uncertain which size you require. We would be happy to help.

How big is a mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip could be just what you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal choice to deal with numerous tasks.

The mini skip can fit on the smallest of driveways but can also be placed on the side of the street, subject to receiving a skip permit from the council.

Although most frequently chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also be used for small commercial jobs.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Dufftown?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need a skip permit if it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip is on private property, such as a driveway or within your company premises.

If you have to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know during the order process, and then we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place the skip on your own land, it will save you a few pounds.

What will happen to the waste?

After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Dufftown where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

What is the cost of skip hire in Dufftown?

This depends upon the size you need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest option is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in commercial settings.

Will you deliver skips across Banffshire?

We provide a national skip hire and waste management service through a network of approved and fully licensed local partner companies. So whether you are looking for skip hire in Dufftown, Macduff, Keith, Buckie or another area in Banffshire, we are able to assist.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are available in a wide range of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of waste, which is great for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can hold roughly 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a great option for garage clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more substantial waste disposal job to deal with, the builder’s skip might be the best option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the title indicates, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and rubble. However they can equally well be hired for domestic waste such as old furniture or kitchen units.

We can also supply 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard RORO containers. To get more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

How fast can you deliver a skip in Dufftown?

We will ask you to confirm when you need the skip to be delivered during the order process, and we’ll make sure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to give you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries will lead to a fee for a wasted trip.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Dufftown?

We use a large network of both local and national skip hire firms to deliver skips to our customers in Dufftown and the rest of the country. Each of our partner firms are verified and evaluated to ensure they satisfy our expectations for price, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

What waste am I allowed to put in the skip?

You are able to load the skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and many other jobs. This can include timber, dirt, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, toys, cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you put in the skip depends on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using a skip for heavy construction waste such as rubble or garden soil, the biggest size you can hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials cannot be discarded in your skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials are classed as hazardous waste and have to be disposed of separately.

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

It is always a good idea to be there when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for the delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.

The same thing goes for those who have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered when you are not there.

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

Do all skips have a drop down door?

The vast majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, making them much easier to load. However, we can’t always guarantee this. If you need a skip with a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our very best to accommodate.

A skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load materials into the container, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and rubble, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. This also makes it easier to load big and bulky objects, such as pieces of furniture.

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

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These containers are predominantly for business use but can be used by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you will require plenty of space because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger than the typical skip you will likely see on the roadside.

Due to the size, RORO skips can only be provided for light-weight materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of concrete and bricks.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electrical items including old TVs, cookers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and environmentally friendly way.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can in most cases keep your skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. You are able to give a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us once you have finished, and we will arrange the collection. Generally, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take a bit longer during hectic times.
