Grantown-on-Spey Skip Hire FAQs

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The regular hire time frame is 14 days from the date of delivery. However, when you order the skip, you can tell us a pick up date that will work for you. Naturally, there is a possibility that you simply won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is loaded sooner than anticipated, tell us, and we will collect it at the earliest opportunity.

Collections will usually be made within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to keep in mind that this may not be possible at busy times. Once collected, your skip will be taken to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.

Am I able to get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electronic items including old televisions, fridge freezers, computers and monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.

Do I need to be there whenever the skip is due to be delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure that the lorry has full access and that the skip is placed exactly where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.

Having said that, if this is not achievable, you don’t have to stress. Simply let us know when making your order, and we will handle everything.

Am I allowed to load up my skip higher than the top?

It is vital never to overload a skip. You can not pass the level load line shown along the side of the skip. When the skip is overfilled, it will become very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you may be asked to take away the surplus rubbish. No matter how secure you believe the skip to be, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Grantown-on-Spey?

In the vast majority of situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the highway, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your business or house, you need to secure permission from your local council in Grantown-on-Spey, which is known as a permit. If necessary, we would be glad to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for your skip license, and you should know before booking that securing the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will often incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What size roll-on roll-off containers are available?

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes known as a RORO, is a huge skip used to dispose of large quantities of waste. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by domestic customers as well. Having said that, you should have plenty of room because these skips range between 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

Due to the size, RORO containers can only be provided for light materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.

Can you deliver to other areas in Inverness?

In addition to delivering skips and containers to Grantown-on-Spey, we also deliver to other towns and villages within Inverness. By utilising our network of local and national skip companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Grantown-on-Spey, Inverness or Fort William, we have got you covered.

What is the cost of skip hire in Grantown-on-Spey?

The price of getting a skip in Grantown-on-Spey will depend on the size of skip you require. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suited to small DIY projects and clearances. If you need a bigger skip, like an 8 cubic yard builders skip, it will naturally cost more. The price will also increase if you want to have a skip on the road, since you will require a permit, which the local authority charge a fee for.

Can I have a skip with a drop down door?

Typically, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you need a drop-down door, be sure to tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip that has a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a large builder’s skip, as it lets you wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What things can I put in my skip?

You can use a skip to discard many different waste materials. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items produced from building work, garden landscaping and house tidy-ups. Examples of allowed waste types can include:

  • Home furnishings
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks
  • Bathroom sinks and toilets
  • Cabinets and units

Many materials are allowed, so whether you wish to throw out metals, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can usually take your rubbish away.

The volume and items you put in your skip can vary depending on which size skip you ordered. Skips do have a weight limit for safety. So if you want to dispose of top soil and hardcore, as an example, the biggest size container you would be able to hire will be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in my skip?

There are a few waste materials you will not be allowed to get rid of in the skip. The reason for this is that these products include hazardous components which can damage the environment. They can even be harmful to human health, therefore they need to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

A few examples of the things that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • PC screens
  • Battery packs
  • Tyres
  • Chemical substances
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How big is a mini skip?

When you have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, a mini skip might be the best choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they have.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The price is based on the particular size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for household jobs including small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How big is a builders skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip refers to the size of skip most often hired for building work. There are generally two skip sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip.
