Inveraray Skip Hire FAQs

Do all skips have a drop down door?

When you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop down door. This is great for disposing of heavy building and demolition materials, as it can be walked in to the skip using a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 cubic yarders also come with a drop-down door, however these are typically more uncommon. Simply because these sizes are typically small enough at the ends for you to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please tell us when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip with a drop door is provided.

What things can I put in my skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of waste in the skip. This includes wood, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden jobs are allowed also. Dated cabinets from a kitchen and old bathroom fixtures can also be discarded in your skip.

However, there are some items that you can’t put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risk they might trigger.

You cannot throw out your fridge, television or car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things consist of hazardous elements in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from your general rubbish.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent service for this material. Feel free to email us for additional details. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.

Can you deliver to other areas in Argyll and Bute?

We offer a UK wide skip hire service using a network of approved and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Inveraray, Oban, Campbeltown, Rothesay or any other location in Argyll and Bute, we can assist.

Can I pile up waste in my skip?

No, you can only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up over this line will make it unsafe to transport, and you might be told to get rid of the excess waste before the skip can be removed. This includes the use of doors, sheets of wood or other materials to raise the skip height. Again, this makes transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can normally keep a skip for up to 14 days from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure the pick up will be as convenient as possible, you have the choice of offering a preferred collection time when making your order.

Otherwise, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the next working day.

It can take a little while longer to collect your skip over busy times, however we will always endeavour to be there as quickly as possible.

How do I order a skip online?

Hiring a skip in Inveraray through us is incredibly simple. Choose the skip size you require and then enter a handful of details about where and when you need your skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our safe and secure online payment platform. We will send you a confirmation email and arrange to have your skip delivered to you.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Inveraray?

Usually, it is possible to have a skip positioned on the road, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or company. But to do this, you must get approval from the local authority in Inveraray, which is called a skip permit. We are able to organise this for you, so you don’t have to worry. The council will impose a fee for this permit, and it can sometimes take 24-2 days for them to approve this.

How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are big commercial scale skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them perfect for companies that generate large quantities of waste materials.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact skip available from skip companies and is good for small DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of around 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some skip companies offer a 3 yard as the smallest skip. They will refer to this as the mini skip, which can be slightly confusing. But rest assured, the price of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip ordered, so whether it is labelled as being a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

Do I need to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

If you are getting a skip delivered to your home, it is always best to be at home on the day the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has complete access and that the skip can be situated exactly where you need it. This also is applicable for those who have a skip delivered to business premises, especially if gates limit access.

However, if that is not possible, you don’t need to stress. Just let us know when you are making your booking, and we will handle everything.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The name builders skip may refer to either the 6 or 8 yard skip. These will be the biggest containers that can be used to get rid of weighty building and construction waste such as rock, bricks, gravel or dirt.

The builders skip is ideal for a wide range of jobs. Whether you are getting an extension built, renovating your kitchen or clearing out your loft, these big containers will often be the most cost-effective solution available.

How many different skip sizes are available?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Inveraray, you have numerous options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.

The 2 cubic yard container, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for modest domestic clearances and DIY work.

Our next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of waste.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. But their substantial capacity also makes them suitable for house clear ups involving large objects like household furniture and beds.

We will offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for anyone with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These sizes are only suitable for light waste materials, so they can not be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.

For additional information regarding the various sizes offered, such as proportions, take a look at our help guide to skip sizes.

Where will you take the waste from my skip?

The items in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the contents will be sorted by machines and also by hand into various waste streams, including metal, plastics, hardcore and wood. Sorting the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

How long will it take to get a skip in Inveraray?

If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even offer a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the order process.

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we can offer customers with the most affordable and dependable skip hire service.

Can I put electrical items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electronic products such as old TVs, fridges, pcs and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly fashion.
