Maybole Skip Hire FAQs
Which size skips will have a drop door?
The majority of containers can be supplied with a drop down door, making them much easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you want a skip with a drop-down door, please let us know when making your order, and we will do our best to accommodate.
Having a skip with a drop-down door can make it easier to load waste materials into the bin, especially with heavy materials, such as soil and bricks, which can be pushed in with a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in large and bulky objects, such as household furniture.
What is a builder’s skip?
The name builders skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 cubic yard skip. These are the biggest skips that can be hired to get rid of substantial building waste such as stone, concrete, gravel or dirt.
The builder’s skip is ideal for a wide range of jobs. If you are having an extension built, remodelling your bathroom or cleaning out your loft, these big skips are often the most affordable solution available.
Do you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?
Certainly. We provide skips to cities, towns and villages all over the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management businesses, we are able to deliver skips to both domestic and commercial customers throughout Ayrshire and Arran and anywhere else in the UK.
How long am I allowed to keep the skip for?
You can usually keep your skip for up to a fortnight from the date that it is delivered to you. To ensure that the pick up is as convenient as possible, you have the option of offering a preferred collection date when placing your order.
Alternatively, just tell us when you have finished loading up the skip, and we will arrange to pick up sooner – in many cases, it will be the following working day.
It can take a little longer to collect your skip during busy times, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.
How long will it take to get a skip in Maybole?
We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll make sure 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 complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we will normally have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we can’t guarantee what time we will arrive, we try to provide you with a morning or afternoon delivery slot to manage your day more conveniently.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery spot, as failed delivery attempts can result in a fee for the wasted trip.
What is a roll-on roll-off container?
The roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a large skip used to get rid of large quantities of waste. These containers are primarily for commercial use but can be hired by residential customers as well. Having said that, you will require a lot of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger compared to the typical skip you will likely see on the side of the road.
Due to the size, RORO containers can only be used for lightweight materials like plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not appropriate for getting rid of concrete and rubble.
Should I be in when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t have to be at home when we deliver the skip. So long as we are able to access where you need it positioned, we can manage everything.
For those who will not be at home, just let us have any relevant delivery directions when you place the order. For instance, you might want the skip to be dropped at a particular side of the drive. Or you might want to make sure the skip does not block access to your garage.
No matter what the case might be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will ensure your instructions are passed on to the lorry driver.
Am I allowed to load my skip above the level load mark?
It is very important not to overload your skip, as you risk being required to take off excessive waste before it can be picked up. Whatever size you hire, you are only allowed to load them to a level load. This is a basic safety requirement, because moving an overloaded skip will be dangerous, as materials could drop and cause injury or damage to others.
To avoid this issue, please ensure you hire a size suited to your waste disposal needs. If the skip is full but you have some further waste to dispose of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
How many different skip sizes are available?
When it comes to hiring a skip in Maybole, you will have multiple sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in capacity.
The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called a mini skip, is the smallest choice available. This compact skip is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY jobs.
Our next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of waste.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes ordered, as building contractors and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their big capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups including bulky objects like furniture and beds.
We can offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard bins for customers with even bigger rubbish disposal needs. These containers are only appropriate for lightweight waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of garden soil or stone.
To get more information about the different skip sizes available, including measurements, have a look at our help guide to skip sizes.
How much does skip hire in Maybole cost?
Our aim is to deliver the cheapest skip hire service in Maybole. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you hire. This varies from the mini skip, which is the least expensive choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you want to have a skip positioned on the street or other council owned property, you will also need to factor in the extra expense of the skip permit.
Where do you take the waste from my skip?
When your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a local waste recycling centre, where it will be processed. The waste gets segregated into various waste streams, such as timber, metals and cardboard. This helps to ensure as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to minimising environmental impact by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!
What waste can I put in a skip?
Your skip can be hired to discard a variety of types of waste. We are used to picking up and processing numerous items generated from building jobs, garden landscaping and property tidy-ups. A few examples of allowed waste types include:
- Tree cuttings
- Stone and concrete
- Bathroom toilets and sinks
- Kitchen cabinets and units
Many different materials are generally accepted, and therefore whether you would like to throw out furniture, plastics, wood or textiles, we can normally take your waste away.
The volume and materials you throw in the skip may vary according to which size skip you ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety purposes. So if you would like discard garden soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size you would be allowed to hire will be the 8 yard builders skip.
What sort of items am I not allowed to put in a skip?
There are some materials you will not be able to put in the skip. The reason behind this is that some goods incorporate hazardous materials that may be harmful to the environment. They can even be hazardous to human health, so they must be discarded separately under UK regulations.
A few of the products that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Fridges
- Gas canisters
- PC screens
- Car tyres
- Chemical substances
How large is a mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, a mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is described as a mini skip differs from business to business, according to what sizes they supply.
The most common size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to have a 3 cubic yard skip for their smallest option. The cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are best for domestic work like small DIY projects and garden shed tidy ups. If you want it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Will a Maybole skip hire company deliver my skip?
To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and national businesses. This allows us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to make sure we can offer customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in the skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, since electrical items such as old televisions, freezers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
Do I require permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Maybole?
This depends on where the skip is going to be located. You will only require a permit when it is placed on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit if your skip is on your private property, such as a driveway or on your business premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, so we will make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They will charge a fee for the permit, so if you can locate the skip on private property, it will save you a few pounds.
