Kingussie Skip Hire FAQs
Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?
As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic products need to be kept separate from general waste materials to get reused, recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electrical goods such as washing machines, TVs, kettles, laptops and even hair straighteners.
Do I have to be there whenever the skip is going to be delivered?
It usually is best if you can be available when anybody delivers something to your house. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be placed just where you want it.
The same applies if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not present.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
What types of waste can I put in my skip?
You are able to throw a wide array of waste types in the skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, metal or bricks from a property clearance. Tree and bush cuttings, soil and rock from garden jobs are permitted also. Cupboards and worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in the skip.
However, there are a few items that you are not allowed to put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risk they could trigger.
You can not throw in your fridge freezer, computer monitor or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also not allowed in the skip. Each of these things contain hazardous elements in one type or another. They should be disposed of separately from general waste.
If you want hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange an independent service for this waste. Feel free to email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you may be able to take this type of waste to your local council managed recycling centre.
How much waste can a builders skip hold?
The builders skip is the most frequent skip which is ordered in the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building projects, which is where the label comes from.
The 8 yard builder’s skip will be the biggest size that you can use for hefty waste matter including dirt, concrete, stone and rubble.
What is a mini skip?
If you have a small amount of waste to get rid of, a mini skip may be the best choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, dependant upon what sizes they provide.
The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms opt to have a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are ideal for domestic tasks including modest DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you would like 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 it cost to hire a skip in Kingussie?
Our aim is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Kingussie. The price you pay will, obviously, depend upon the size of skip that you hire. This ranges from the mini skip, which is the least expensive option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have your skip located on the road or any other council property, you will also have to factor in the added price of a skip permit.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Kingussie?
Ideally, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anybody who is doing a domestic job, then a driveway will be ideal. If it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the ideal solution. However, when neither option is available, the street or grass verge may be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from your local authority. This is known as a skip permit, and will be essential for a skip to be located on the street, grass verge or other public property in Kingussie. If this is needed, we will arrange for the license to be issued on your behalf. An additional cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.
When will my skip be delivered?
When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it to you on a date that best suits you. We can usually give you a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you will have to get a skip permit which can take a couple of days to arrange.
As a result of several factors that can impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to inform you whether you can anticipate it to be delivered within a morning or afternoon slot.
Will the skip have a drop down door?
Getting a skip with a drop door will make filling rubbish into it much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as soil and hardcore, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make loading big bulky objects like furniture a lot easier as well.
The majority of skips can be provided with a drop door, however it will sometimes depend on area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a drop door is required, and we will do our very best to deliver this.
Who will deliver my skip?
We use a network of both local and nationwide skip hire businesses to deliver skips to our customers in Kingussie and the rest of the country. Our partner companies are approved and evaluated to guarantee they meet our expectations for cost, service, recycling and reliability.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?
A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a substantial container used to dispose of huge quantities of waste materials. Generally, these skips are used for commercial purposes. Having said that, domestic customers may also hire them. You will need to look at the space they take up, as they measure between 20 and 40 cubic yards. Because of this, they can only be hired for light-weight waste like plastics, wood and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of garden soil and hardcore.
How long am I able to hire a skip for?
You can usually hire your skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, you will have the option of providing a preferred collection date when making your order.
Otherwise, just let us know when you have finished with the skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in many circumstances, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little while longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
What will happen to the rubbish?
As soon as your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get sorted into a range of waste streams, such as timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. Our company is very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
Will you deliver skips across Inverness?
Along with delivering our range of skips to Kingussie, we can also deliver to other towns and villages within Inverness. With the help of our network of regional and national skip hire businesses, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business in Kingussie, Inverness or Grantown-on-Spey, we have got it covered.
Am I allowed to stack up waste in my skip?
I’m afraid not. You must only fill up your skip up to the level load line. Stacking rubbish up over this line would make it unsafe to move, and you might be asked to take off the excess waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes the use of doors, or any other objects to increase the skip height. Again, this can make transportation of the skip dangerous and it can also make it overweight.
What sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Kingussie, you have various options to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next size available is the 4 yard midi skip, that 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 cubic yards. They are the most frequent sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their big capacity also makes them great for household tidy ups including large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal needs. These skips are only appropriate for light waste materials, so they cannot be hired to dispose of garden soil or rubble.
To get more details about the different capacities offered, such as dimensions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
