Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be at home when we deliver your skip. As long as we are able to gain access to where you want it delivered, we are able to manage it all.

If you are not likely to be at home, simply provide us with any relevant delivery instructions when booking the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be positioned at a particular side of your drive. Or you may need to ensure the skip does not obstruct entry to your garage.

No matter what the situation might be, provide the information when you place your order, and then we will ensure the instructions will be passed to the delivery driver.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact containers are great for small DIY work and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.

They can be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furnishings and broken toys to paving blocks and bricks. With a volume of around 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you having to make several visits to your local recycling centre.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

If you complete your booking prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive with your skip, we strive to offer you a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.

All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver has access to your required delivery location, as failed deliveries will lead to a fee for the wasted trip.

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

No, you can not throw old or broken electronic waste items in your skip. This can include things like printers, microwaves, tumble dryers, freezers and tv sets. Electrical items can’t be discarded in your skip because they can contain dangerous materials and components.

Under the 2003 WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations, old electrical products cannot go to landfill and must be recycled.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

The normal hire term is a fortnight from your delivery date. However, at the time you book your skip, you can let us know a collection date that is ideal for you. Of course, there is a chance that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, tell us, and we will pick it up as quickly as possible.

We will usually make collections within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible during busier times. Once collected, your skip will be transported to your local waste transfer centre, where it will be processed and sorted.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the road in Girvan?

This depends on where the skip will be located. You will only need a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit when your skip is on private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you do need to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just tell us while completing the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

What things can I put in the skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill up your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of waste which will result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most typical things which we find in skips include garden soil, timber, bush cuttings, cabinets, sinks, and various other household products.

There are also some items that you are not allowed to throw in your skip. This consists of any electrical products (fridges, TVs and cookers for example), tyres, sheets of asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and therefore getting rid of them must comply with a completely different procedure to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.

Will a skip hire company from Girvan deliver my skip?

We use a large network of both regional and national skip hire companies to deliver skips to our clients in Girvan and the rest of the country. Every one of our partner skip hire companies are approved and evaluated to make sure they match our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.

Is it ok to load up my skip higher than level load mark?

It is important to not overfill the skip. You can not pass the level load mark shown on the side of the skip. If your skip is overloaded, it will become very unsafe to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you may be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. Regardless of how secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat materials to build up around the waste. This is dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

Do all skips come with a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door makes loading rubbish into it a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy waste like soil and rubble, which can then be loaded straight into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of large bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier also.

Most skip containers can be supplied with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon location and availability. Let us know when you place your order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and collect it. It will be transported to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Girvan where we will segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yd skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are ordered by general builders and tradespeople.

These large skips are suited to numerous domestic and business projects. These are the biggest size skips which you can use for heavy builders waste like garden soil, rubble and gravel.
