Inverurie Skip Hire FAQs
Will the skip be supplied with a drop down door?
If you are getting a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will include a drop-down door. This is made for getting rid of hefty building and construction rubbish, as it can be walked in the skip with a wheelbarrow.
Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop down door, though these are less common. Simply because these sizes are generally low enough on the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste materials into them.
If you want a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our very best to make sure a skip with a drop door is delivered.
How large is a roll-on roll-off skip?
If you manage a company in Inverurie and need to get rid of substantial amounts of light waste materials, a roll-on roll-off bin might be a great choice. Offered in 20 – 40 cubic yards, they are the largest waste disposal skips that are available.
As the name suggests, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, in contrast to regular skips, which are picked up by using chains.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip is delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. For those who order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your chosen skip the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee an exact delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive 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 usually incur a charge for the wasted journey.
What happens to the rubbish?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste recycling station either in or local to Inverurie where we separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, rubble, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
Am I able to get rid of electrical items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electrical items such as old televisions, refrigerators, laptops and monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items must be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a secure and eco friendly manner.
How long am I allowed to hire a skip for?
The price of hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to a fortnight. Usually, that will provide you with plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with your skip earlier, our company is happy to arrange a collection. Just contact us once you have finished, and we will arrange to send out one of our drivers to collect the skip as soon as possible.
How big is a mini skip?
If you have a small quantity of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect option. What size is identified as a mini skip varies from business to business, based on what sizes they have.
2 cubic yards is probably the most popular size for the mini skip. However, some companies choose to provide a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. The cost is based on the particular size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for household jobs including modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
How much does skip hire in Inverurie cost?
This will depend on the skip size you will need and whether you need to have a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) is the least expensive option. The most expensive and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used predominantly in business settings.

What is the procedure for hiring a skip in Inverurie?
Hiring a skip in Inverurie with us is very straightforward. Select the skip size you will need and then input a couple of details about where and when you need your skip delivered. You then pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then arrange to have your skip delivered to you.
Do you deliver skips across Aberdeenshire?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Inverurie, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Aberdeenshire. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies, we offer a totally nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business in Inverurie, Fraserburgh or Blackburn, we have got it covered.
Can I fill up my skip above the top?
I’m afraid not. You must only pack your skip up to the level load mark. Stacking rubbish up above this line makes it dangerous to move, and you may be told to take off the surplus waste before the skip can be collected. 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 it could also make it overweight.
What is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip is the most popular skip which is ordered across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 yd capacity, a builders skip is fantastic for most building projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yd builders skip is the biggest option that you can use for heavy waste materials including garden soil, concrete, stone and rubble.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is going to be delivered?
You don’t have to be home when your skip is delivered, but it does help. Being there whenever the skip arrives means you can make sure the driver is given complete access and that the skip can be positioned exactly where you want it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to business premises, we will appreciate your assistance at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s entry.
Having said that, for those who can’t be around at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to tell us when you book your order, and we will arrange everything from there.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Inverurie?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only need a skip permit if it is positioned on public property, like a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need to have a permit if the skip will be on your private property, like a drive or within your company premises.
If you have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Just let us know as part of the order process, and we will make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private land, it will save you some money.
Will a Inverurie skip hire company deliver my skip?
We utilise a network of both local and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Inverurie and the rest of the country. Each of our partner companies are approved and tested to guarantee they satisfy our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Inverurie, you have various sizes to choose from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard skip, also known as a mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is excellent for small home clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. These represent the most popular sizes hired, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also makes them perfect for household clearances involving bulky objects like pieces of furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger waste disposal needs. These sizes are only appropriate for lightweight materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or concrete.
To get more information about the various skip sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
Am I able to dispose of all sorts of waste in my skip?
Before you hire your skip, you must make sure that the sort of rubbish you wish to dispose of is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and can’t be mixed with general rubbish. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.
Examples of waste types you are able to discard in your skip include home items like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You can also use a skip to discard building and demolition waste, including bricks, soil, stone, metals and gravel.
Some examples of restricted items include things like electronic items, tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and plasterboard. They are all considered hazardous waste and subsequently need to be disposed of separately from general rubbish.
