Hawick Skip Hire FAQs

What is classed as a builder’s skip?

As the name indicates, a builders skip is the size of skip most commonly supplied for building projects. There are typically two sizes that may be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty bins that you can use to dispose of large amounts of construction and demolition waste materials, like earth, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are branded a builder’s skip, they can be used for multiple other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

How soon can you deliver a skip to Hawick?

We will ensure your skip is provided when requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our very best to reach you within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You will need to ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery area, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.

Who will deliver my skip?

A local skip hire firm will likely deliver your skip in Hawick. We work with a network of both regional and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to customers throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they meet the high expectations we demand with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.

Do I require approval to have a skip delivered on the street in Hawick?

If at all possible, you should have the skip left on to a hard surface area. If you are carrying out a household task, then your drive will be best. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the way to go. Having said that, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be dropped on the road, grass verge or other public property in Hawick. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the cost of your chosen skip size.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

The roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a huge container that can be used to dispose of huge amounts of waste materials. Mostly, these skips are hired for industrial purposes. However, domestic customers can also order them. You have to take into account the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light materials like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of garden soil and concrete.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Hawick?

Ordering a skip in Hawick with us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you want and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like the skip delivered. You can then pay for your skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and then schedule to have your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

For those who have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, a mini skip might be the best solution. What size is called a mini skip varies from company to company, based on what sizes they have.

2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard container for their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are ideal for domestic work including modest DIY projects and garden clean ups. If you need it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

How much will skip hire in Hawick cost?

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

Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?

No. You can only pack the skip up to the level load mark. Stacking waste up above this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you could be asked to get rid of the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or other materials to increase the height of the skip. Again, this makes transportation of the skip dangerous and can also make it overweight.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will in most cases have a hire period of up to 2 weeks. Usually, that gives you plenty of time to fill your skip. However, if you need some more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, in the event you finish with the skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip as quickly as possible.

Where does the rubbish be taken to once the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets separated into a range of waste types, such as wood, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the rubbish is recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

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

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be there on the day the skip is delivered. You can then ensure the lorry has total access and that the skip can be placed precisely where you need it. The same applies if you have a skip delivered to company premises, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, when this isn’t feasible, you don’t have to be concerned. Simply tell us when placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.

Can I put all sorts of waste in a skip?

It is possible to fill up the skip with a variety of different waste types that are commonly generated from loft clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, dirt, stone, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip depends on which skip size you have ordered, as there is a maximum weight limit. For instance, when you are using the skip for heavy construction waste like concrete or top soil, the biggest size you could hire is the 8 yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This can include refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, asbestos, paint, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore have to be disposed of separately.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical goods like washing machines, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?

For anyone who is ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will come with a drop-down door. This is designed for disposing of hefty building and demolition rubbish, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also feature a drop door, although they are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough at the ends so that you can tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.

If you want a drop door for your job, tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to ensure a skip with a drop door is supplied.
