Lossiemouth Skip Hire FAQs
What is a mini skip?
When you have a small amount of waste to throw out, a mini skip could be the ideal option. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.
2 cubic yards is the most widely used size for the mini skip. However, some firms choose to provide a 3 yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is based on the actual size you hire, instead of the term “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential tasks such as modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you need it placed on your driveway and require space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builders skip can refer to either the 6 or 8 cubic yard skip. These will be the biggest skips that can be hired to discard substantial building and construction waste such as stone, concrete, rubble or dirt.
A builder’s skip is perfect for a wide range of projects. Whether you are getting an extension built, remodelling your kitchen or clearing the garden shed, these substantial skips will often be the most cost-effective choice available.
Will you deliver to other areas in Moray?
As well as delivering our range of skips to Lossiemouth, we can also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Moray. With the help of our network of regional and national waste management companies, we provide a totally nationwide service. So whether you want a skip delivering in Lossiemouth, Forres or Elgin, we have got it covered.
Do all skips come with a drop door?
Generally speaking, most skips can be provided with a drop door, dependant upon size, availability and area. If you want a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.
Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if hiring a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow your rubbish straight into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.
Do I need to be there when the skip is delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be in when anybody delivers anything to your home. That allows you to make sure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be positioned exactly where you need it.
The same applies for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not present.
However, when it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you don’t have to be there when the skip is being delivered.
Who will deliver my skip?
Since we provide a nationwide skip hire service, we utilise an extensive network of verified and approved companies. These can vary from small family-run skip hire firms to nationwide waste management service providers. Every one of our service providers are vetted to guarantee they match our high customer service and environmental standards.
Am I allowed to load my skip higher than the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you may have to remove any contents over the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to use sheets of timber, doors or any other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overloaded or overweight before transporting them.
Please be sure to hire the appropriate size of skip to suit your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you need. We will be glad to help.
Can a skip be dropped on a road in Lossiemouth?
This will depend on where the skip will be positioned. You will only require a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or within your business premises.
If you have to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us while completing the order process, and we can make the required arrangements with your local council. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have the skip on private property, it will save you some pounds.
How many different skip sizes are there?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Lossiemouth, you will have various sizes to pick from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 yard container, often referred to as the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small house clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi comes the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. These represent the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently use them. However their substantial capacity also makes them ideal for household tidy ups including large objects such as pieces of furniture and beds.
We can provide 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suited to lightweight waste, so they can’t be hired to get rid of soil or concrete.
For additional information about the different sizes available, such as dimensions, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
What happens to the rubbish?
After you have finished filling up your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste transfer facility in or local to Lossiemouth where we will sort the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, concrete, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How can I order a skip?
Ordering a skip should not be difficult. That is why we have made the order process as simple as possible. First, type in your delivery postcode to view the range of skips we are able to deliver to Lossiemouth. Choose the size you want to hire, and confirm whether it will be positioned on private property. Enter in your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.
When your order is done, we will send you a confirmation email with your order information. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.
What types of waste am I allowed to put in my skip?
This is among the most common questions people have about skip hire. What is important to remember is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many types of rubbish that can result from garden work, construction work and house clearances.
Among the most frequent items that we collect in skips include garden soil, timber, hedge cuttings, kitchen cabinets, baths, and various other household products.
There are also some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in the skip. This includes any electronic products (refrigerators, monitors and washing machines for example), old car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and so disposing of them must abide by a completely different process to make sure they don’t result in damage to the environment.
What is the cost of skip hire in Lossiemouth?
This is determined by the skip size you require and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) is the lowest priced option. The most expensive and biggest choice is the 40 cubic yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

How long can I keep the skip for?
You can normally have the skip for as many as 2 weeks from the date of delivery. It is possible to give a chosen pick up date when you make your order. Alternatively, you can tell us when you have loaded the skip, and we will prepare the collection. In most cases, this will be the following business day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic periods.
Can I throw electrical items in my skip?
Electric powered items including television sets, freezers, refrigerators, personal computers, monitors and hoovers are classed as a hazardous type of waste and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods have to be separated from other materials. This helps ensure they can be recycled and disposed of within the safest and most environmentally friendly manner.
What size roll-on roll-off skips can you provide?
If you have a company in Lossiemouth and wish to dispose of large amounts of light waste, a roll-on roll-off bin could be a perfect choice. Available in 20 to 40 yards, they are the largest waste disposal containers available.
As the label indicates, these containers are rolled on and off the lorry using a hook, as opposed to regular skips, which are lifted using chains.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can typically have your skip delivered the next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same-day delivery service. Availability and delivery dates are confirmed as part of the online order process.
