Kirriemuir Skip Hire FAQs

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Kirriemuir?

In most circumstances, your skip can be delivered on to your drive, the highway, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or workplace. If you would like your skip to be situated on land outside of your business or residence, you need to receive authorisation from your local council in Kirriemuir, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will be happy to arrange this for you, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The council does charge a fee for the skip permit, and you should know before ordering that getting the licence will often take up to 2 working days.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The phrase builder’s skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 yard skip. The label originates from the fact that these are the most popular sizes hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big containers are fantastic for a wide variety of domestic and business jobs. They are the biggest skip sizes that can be used for heavy builders waste including soil, rubble and gravel.

What is the procedure for ordering a skip in Kirriemuir?

Hiring a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order process as easy as possible. First, enter in your postcode to look at the range of skip sizes we are able to deliver to Kirriemuir. Select the size you would like to order, and confirm whether it will be located on your own property. Type in your details and make payment using our secure payment platform.

Once your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip once I have finished?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Kirriemuir where we will sort the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

What different sizes do skips come in?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to match different waste disposal needs. Each container is measured by volume, normally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic jobs.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a small car and is sometimes known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

For those who have a more significant waste disposal task to undertake, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These can be ordered in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including clay and stone. However they can equally well be used for household waste such as broken furniture or bathroom suites.

We also deliver 10-16 cubic yard skips and commercial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For further information about all the different skip sizes we have available, click on the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Am I allowed to fill my skip higher than the level load line?

It is important to not overload your skip. You should not pass the level load mark that is shown on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it is very unsafe to move. Which means that when you overload the skip, you could be required to take away the surplus rubbish. However secure you feel the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes making use of old doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. That is hazardous and is therefore prohibited.

Will a Kirriemuir skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip company will most likely deliver your skip in Kirriemuir. We work with a network of both local and national companies to enable us to offer our service to businesses and households across the whole of the UK. These companies are thoroughly vetted to make sure they fulfill the high expectations we demand in terms of customer service, cost and environmental performance.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?

No, you do not need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you want it located, we are able to manage everything.

In case you will not be at home, simply let us know any relevant delivery directions when booking the order. For instance, you might need the skip to be positioned on a particular part of your property. Or you might want to ensure that the skip does not hinder access to your garage.

Whatever the situation might be, provide the details when ordering, and we will make sure your instructions are passed to the delivery driver.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you have requested. The majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.

When you confirm your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we cannot promise what time we will arrive, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you ensure the delivery lorry has access to your required delivery site, as failed delivery attempts will result in a fee for a wasted trip.

How long can I hire a skip for?

Typically, you can keep your skip for a maximum of 14 days. This means you do not need to hurry through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is full prior to the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and pick up the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

What types of waste materials can I put in a skip?

Before ordering your skip, it is essential to ensure that the type of waste you want to discard is actually allowed to go in the skip. Some objects and materials need to be kept separate and cannot get mixed with general waste. This is a legal requirement that aims to help protect the environment.

Examples of waste types you can discard in your skip include household goods like furniture, tiles, cabinets, garden waste and toys. You could also use your skip to dispose of building and demolition rubbish, including wood, soil, rubble, metals and gravel.

Some examples of forbidden items include electronic goods, car tyres, old paint, chemicals, batteries and asbestos. They are all classed as hazardous waste and therefore have to be discarded separately from general rubbish.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the most compact size available and can describe either the 2 or 3 cubic yard skip. These small containers are great for small DIY tasks and house clearances. Their small footprint means they are perfect for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken baby toys to paving blocks and rubble. Having a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of waste, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous trips to your local recycling centre.

Can I get rid of electronic items in my skip?

Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic goods need to be kept separate from general waste materials to be recycled, reused or disposed of safely and securely. This includes all electric goods including tumble dryers, TVs, toasters, computers and even hair straighteners.

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Kirriemuir?

To discover how much it will cost to hire a skip in Kirriemuir, type in your postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you the sizes we provide in your area and how much each option costs to order. If your skip is going on the street or other council-owned property, a skip permit charge will also need to be factored in.

Will my skip come with a drop down door?

Using a skip that has a drop door can make loading waste into the skip a lot easier. This is especially true with heavy waste materials such as soil or hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make disposing of big bulky objects like household furniture easier also.

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

Can you deliver skips across Angus?

Along with delivering our range of skips to Kirriemuir, we can also deliver to other towns and villages across Angus. Through our network of local and national skip companies, we provide you with a truly nationwide service. So whether you require a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Kirriemuir, Montrose or Arbroath, we have got you covered.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?

The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a massive skip used to get rid of large amounts of rubbish. These bins are mainly for industrial use but can be used by residential clients too. Having said that, you will want a lot of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will see on the roadside.

Due to the size, roll-on roll-off containers can only be hired for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, so they are not suitable for getting rid of soil and rubble.
