Huntly Skip Hire FAQs

What is classed as a builders skip?

The builders skip is the most common skip that is hired across the UK. Coming in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, the builders skip is fantastic for most building and construction projects, which is where the label originates from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the largest size which can be used for hefty waste materials such as dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.

Where will my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, it will be taken to a local waste transfer station to be processed. The rubbish will be sorted into various waste streams, including wood, metals, plastics, etc. This ensures that as much of the waste as possible is recycled, which is much better for the environment.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to 14 days. In most cases, this gives you sufficient time to fill the skip. However, if you need a bit more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.

Of course, should you finish with the skip sooner, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just tell us once you have finished, and then we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to pick up the skip at the earliest opportunity.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a large container used to get rid of large quantities of waste. Generally, these skips are hired for industrial purposes. However, household clients may also order them. It is very important consider the space they occupy, because they measure between 20 to 40 cubic yards. For this reason, they must only be hired for light-weight waste including paper, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the disposal of garden soil and stone.

What types of waste can you dispose of in a skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about hiring a skip. The main thing to consider is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many types of rubbish that will result from garden work, construction work and household clearances.

Among the most frequent items that we pick up in skips include garden soil, timber, tree trimmings, kitchen cabinets, sinks, and various other household objects.

However, there are some materials that you are not allowed to throw in the skip. This consists of any electronic products (refrigerators, monitors and laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and paint. They are all considered hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must adhere to a completely different process to ensure they don’t cause harm to the environment.

When will my skip be delivered?

We can in most cases supply skips to Huntly the next working day when your order is placed before 3pm. This applies to orders made between Monday and Friday.

Our online booking program offers you various delivery dates to select from. So whether you would like the skip to arrive asap or wish to schedule delivery for a later date, it’s not a problem.

Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the top?

No. You are only allowed to pack your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line makes it unsafe to move, and you could be told to remove the excess waste before your skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to raise the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and could also make it overweight.

What is the cost of skip hire in Huntly?

This will depend on the size you need and whether you need a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container, which is used mainly in business settings. To obtain an immediate price for skip hire in Huntly, simply enter your postcode into the search box above.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your property, it is best to be there when it is delivered. Then you can be sure the lorry has full access and that the skip is positioned precisely where you need it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to business premises, particularly when gates limit access.

However, when this is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when you are making your booking, and we will take care of everything.

If I would like a skip on the road in Huntly, will I need to have a permit?

In the majority of cases, your skip can be delivered on your driveway, the road, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be located on land outside of your company or home, you will have to secure authorisation from the local council in Huntly, which is known as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly arrange this for you, so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should know before ordering that securing the permit can sometimes take up to 2 working days.

How large is the mini skip?

If you are looking for a low-cost skip to get rid of some household rubbish, the mini skip may be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal option to deal with many jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be located on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most frequently hired by household customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.

Is it possible to have a skip which has a drop down door?

Having a skip which has a drop door makes filling waste into it much easier. This is especially the case with heavy materials such as soil or rubble, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading up big bulky objects such as furniture a lot easier as well.

Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although this may sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to deliver this.

How do you hire a skip?

Hiring a skip in Huntly through us is very easy. Choose the skip size you need and then enter a few details about when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. You can then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to get your skip delivered on the date you have selected.

Can I throw electrical products in the skip?

Electronic objects like TVs, freezers, fridges, computers, monitors and tumble dryers are classed as a hazardous waste and so should not be put in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical products should be segregated from other waste. This ensures that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most environmentally friendly way.

How many different skip sizes are there?

Skips are offered in a number of different sizes to match various waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is good for small residential jobs.

Next up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold roughly 35 black bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yard is an excellent choice for garage clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal job to handle, the builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the label implies, these represent the most typical sizes hired by builders for building waste, including clay and stone. But they can just as well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also offer 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard RORO containers. For additional information about the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.
