Laurencekirk Skip Hire FAQs

Will you deliver skips across Kincardineshire?

We offer a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local companies. So whether you would like skip hire in Laurencekirk, Inverbervie, Banchory, Stonehaven or any other site in Kincardineshire, we are able to help.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We can provide a wide range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for small DIY projects and house clearances. A common option for more substantial tasks, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Laurencekirk companies which produce a significant amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo skips (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are large commercial scale skips that are used predominantly within the business sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, making them great for businesses that generate large amounts of waste materials.

Where will you take the rubbish from my skip?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer centre. Here the rubbish will be separated by machinery and by hand into numerous waste streams, including metal, plastics, concrete and timber. Sorting the waste in this way helps to maximise the quantity which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that has to go in landfill.

Is it okay to pile up waste in my skip?

You should not fill up the skip past the level load mark. If you fill it above the tip of this level, it means your skip will not be safe to move, and you may be asked to remove the excess rubbish before it can be collected.

How much waste will fit in the mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of rubbish to throw out, the mini skip could be the best option. What size is identified as a mini skip is different from business to business, determined by what sizes they supply.

The most common size for a mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard skip for their smallest option. The price is based on the actual size you hire, rather than the term “mini skip”.

Mini skips are fantastic for domestic jobs like small DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you want it positioned on your driveway and require room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed during the online order process.

How much waste can I get in a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip is the size of skip most often used for building projects. There are usually two different sizes which can be described as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers that you can use to get rid of large volumes of building and demolition materials, such as earth, concrete and bricks.

Even though they are labelled a builder’s skip, these can be used for many other residential and commercial waste disposal tasks.

How do you hire a skip online?

We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first step is to enter your delivery address to view the range of skip sizes we can supply in Laurencekirk. Select the right size to meet your needs and give us the details of when and where you would like your skip to be delivered. You can then make payment with the secure payment platform, and we will send an email to verify your order once your booking is done!

Will a skip hire company from Laurencekirk deliver my skip?

We utilise a large network of both regional and national skip hire businesses to supply skips to our clients in Laurencekirk and the rest of the UK. Each of our partner companies are verified and evaluated to guarantee they meet our standards for cost, customer service, recycling rates and reliability.

Am I able to get a skip that has a drop door?

Generally, almost all skips can be provided with a drop door, depending on skip size, availability and location. If you need a drop door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly helpful if hiring a big builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, as they are lower enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

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

No, you do not have to be home when we are delivering the skip. As long as we are able to gain access to the place you need it positioned, we are able to manage it all.

In the event you are not going to be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery instructions when booking your order. For example, you might want the skip to be dropped on a particular part of your drive. Alternatively, you may want to be sure that the skip doesn’t block entry to your garage.

Whatever the case may be, simply tell us when ordering, and we will make sure the instructions are passed to the lorry driver.

What types of rubbish am I allowed to dispose of in a skip?

It is possible to put a wide array of waste types in the skip. This includes timber, floor tiles, plastics or bricks from a household clearance. Shrub and bush clippings, dirt and stone from garden jobs are permitted also. Dated cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings may also go in a skip.

There are, however, some items that you are not allowed to put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they can trigger.

You cannot throw out your freezer, laptop or old car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these items contain hazardous materials in one form or another. They should be disposed of separately from your normal waste.

Should you need hazardous waste disposal, we might be able to schedule a separate service for this material. Feel free to email us for further information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council managed recycling facility.

Can a skip be dropped on a road in Laurencekirk?

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only require a permit if it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

If you need to get a permit, we can organise this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know as part of the order process, and then we can make the required arrangements with the local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on private property, it will save you some money.

How long am I able to keep a skip for?

You can typically have the skip for up to 2 weeks from the delivery date. You may give a chosen pick up day at the time you place your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have finished, and we will plan the collection. Usually, this will be the following business day, although it can occasionally take slightly longer over busy periods.

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Laurencekirk?

Our aim is to provide the lowest priced skip hire service in Laurencekirk. The price you pay will, naturally, depend upon the size of skip you hire. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest option, all the way up to the 40 yard roll-on roll-off container. If you need to have a skip situated on the highway or any other local authority property, you will also have to factor in the additional expense of the skip permit.

Can I throw electronic items in the skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, since electronic products such as old TVs, refrigerators, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items have to be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly manner.
