Invergordon Skip Hire FAQs
How much does skip hire in Invergordon cost?
To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Invergordon, insert your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display which sizes we provide in your location and how much each one will cost to hire. If the skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
How do you order a skip in Invergordon?
This is the easy part. First, choose the skip size you want to hire. Tell us whether the skip shall be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or public property (like the street). After that, pick the day you want your skip to get delivered. Check your order and then make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Invergordon on the day you have selected.
How long can I keep a skip for?
Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. Which means you do not need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is fully loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.
Am I allowed to throw away electrical items in the skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items must be kept separate from general rubbish to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical items such as washing machines, televisions, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door can make loading waste into the skip much easier. This is particularly the case with hefty materials such as garden soil and concrete, which can then be walked straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It will also make loading large bulky objects like furniture easier also.
The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop door, but it will sometimes depend upon your area and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to supply this.
Do you deliver to other areas in Ross and Cromarty?
In addition to delivering skips and containers to Invergordon, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Ross and Cromarty. By utilising a network of local and national skip businesses, we provide you with a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Invergordon, Tain or Fortrose, we have got it covered.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
If you place your order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually have your skip delivered the very next day. In some cases, we will even offer a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.
What size is a builder’s skip?
As the name implies, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most commonly hired for construction work. There are generally two different sizes which can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. These are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of large quantities of construction and demolition waste, like garden soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge commercial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. These come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them great for businesses that generate large quantities of waste.
Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be in when anybody delivers something to your house. You can then make sure there is access for the delivery, and the skip can be located exactly where you need it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You can only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Loading rubbish up above this line will make it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to remove the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, or other materials to raise the height of the skip. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and can also make it overweight.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
If you are looking for a low-cost skip to dispose of some domestic rubbish, a mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 yard capacity (based upon area), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to tackle numerous tasks.
A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can equally be positioned on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.
Although most often chosen by residential customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.
What skip sizes can you provide?
We offer a complete range of skip sizes to household and business clients all over the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the humble 2 cubic yard mini skip to the massive 40 cubic yard roll-on roll-off container.
Below are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough idea of how much rubbish each skip can hold:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Will a skip hire company from Invergordon deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will most likely deliver your skip in Invergordon. We work with a network of both local and nationwide businesses to enable us to provide our service to businesses and households throughout the whole of the UK. These businesses are fully assessed to guarantee they fulfill the high principles we require with regards to service, cost and environmental performance.
What can I put in my skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This includes timber, bathroom tiles, plastics or concrete from a property clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, top soil and stone from garden work is allowed too. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also be discarded in your skip.
However, there are some things that you can’t put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risk they might trigger.
You cannot get rid of your fridge freezer, television or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these things incorporate hazardous materials in one form or another. They must be disposed of separately from your normal rubbish.
If you need hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to arrange an independent collection for this material. Please contact 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 run recycling facility.
What happens to the waste in my skip once I’ve finished?
Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will collect it and transport it to a nearby waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The waste gets separated into a range of waste types, which includes timber, soil and plastics. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection will be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little to landfill as possible!
Do I require permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Invergordon?
Generally, it will be possible to have your skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your house or business. But to get this done, you must get consent from the local council in Invergordon, which is known as a skip permit. We will organise this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry. The council will charge a fee for this permit, and it will sometimes take up to 24-48 hrs for them to approve this.
