Millport Skip Hire FAQs

How many different skip sizes are there?

When it comes to ordering a skip in Millport, you have several sizes to select from, which range from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.

The 2 cubic yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip, is the smallest option available. This compact skip is fantastic for small home clearances and DIY tasks.

The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, that can contain the equivalent of roughly 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.

After the midi are the builder’s skips, which are available in either 6 or 8 cubic yards. They are the most common sizes ordered, as builders and tradespeople frequently make use of them. However their large capacity also means they are ideal for house tidy ups involving bulky items such as pieces of furniture and beds.

We are able to supply 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard skips for people and businesses with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These skips are only suitable for light materials, so they can’t be used to get rid of soil or stone.

For more information about the different skip sizes available, including proportions, check out our guide to skip sizes.

Can I dispose of electronic products in my skip?

Electronic items such as televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computer systems, monitors and tumble dryers are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and therefore should not be thrown in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electrical objects have to be separated from other materials. This ensures that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

The name builder’s skip may refer to either the 8 or 6 yard skip. They are the biggest containers that can be hired to dispose of substantial building and demolition waste such as stone, bricks, rubble or garden soil.

The builder’s skip is ideal for a variety of tasks. If you are having an extension built, renovating your kitchen or cleaning out the attic, these big skips are often the most cost-effective solution available.

Is it ok to fill up my skip higher than the top?

It is important to not overfill a skip. You should not pass the level load line indicated on the side of the skip. If the skip is overloaded, it becomes very unsafe to transport. Which means that if you overfill your skip, you might be asked to take away the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you feel the skip is, it can not be collected if overloaded. This includes using doors or other large flat pieces to build up around the rubbish. This can be hazardous and is therefore not allowed.

Will you deliver skips across Ayrshire and Arran?

We offer a nationwide skip hire service by using a network of verified and fully licensed local partners. So whether you need skip hire in Millport, Newmilns, Stewarton, Ardrossan or another location in Ayrshire and Arran, we can assist.

How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?

The regular hire time frame is 14 days from your date of delivery. However, at the time you order your skip, you can tell us a collection date that will work for you. Of course, there is a chance that you just won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. Therefore, if your skip is finished with earlier than expected, let us know, and we will collect it as quickly as possible.

We can usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. However, it is important to understand that this may not always be possible during busier periods. Once collected, the waste will be taken to your local waste recycling centre, where the waste will be processed and sorted.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Millport?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a variety of local and national companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to ensure we can offer customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

Should I be in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is best to be at home when the skip is delivered. You can then make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip will be located precisely where you need it. The same is true for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates limit access.

Having said that, if that is not feasible, you don’t need to stress. Simply let us know when placing your order, and then we will take care of everything.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Generally, the majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, depending on the size, availability and area. If you need a drop down door, please let us know when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip which has a drop door is mainly beneficial when you are hiring a large builder’s skip, as it means that you can wheelbarrow rubbish directly into the skip. This is not so important for midi and mini skips, since they are small enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Millport?

If possible, you want to have the skip dropped on a hard surface area. When you are doing a residential job, then a drive is going to be perfect. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or company premises is the way to go. However, if neither option is available, the road or grass verge might be your only option. As this is public property, you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. This is known as a skip permit, and will be necessary for a skip to be positioned on the street, grass verge or other public property in Millport. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be issued for you. An extra fee, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will ensure your skip is delivered on the day required, which in most cases is going to be Monday to Saturday. If you order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the next day.

Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our very best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

You should make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery effort will normally incur a fee for the wasted trip.

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

A roll-on roll-off skip, sometimes referred to as a RORO, is a massive skip that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be hired by household clients too. However, you will want a lot of room because these skips range from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which are much bigger in comparison to the typical skip you will likely see on a neighbour’s driveway.

Due to the size, roro containers can only be used for light materials such as plastics, timber and paper, and so they are not suited to getting rid of soil and rubble.

What happens to the rubbish in the skip?

After you have finished with your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be taken to a waste recycling station either in or local to Millport where we segregate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, plastics, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.

How much waste will the mini skip hold?

If you have a small quantity of waste to get rid of, the mini skip may be the best choice. What size is referred to as a mini skip varies from company to company, according to what sizes they provide.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some firms choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Price is dependent on the particular size you hire, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for household work like modest DIY projects and garden tidy ups. If you want it placed on your driveway and need space 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 Millport?

This will depend on the size you require and whether you will require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 yard mini skip) will be the cheapest option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used mainly in business settings.

How do you order a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you want to hire. Let us know whether the skip will be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or on public property (like the road). Next, select the date you want your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our secure online payment system. Job done! We will deliver your skip to Millport on the date you have selected.

Can I dispose of all types of waste in a skip?

You are able to fill up your skip with a wide range of different waste types which are commonly generated from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This may include wood, soil, rubble, garden trimmings, household furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or old bathroom suites.

What you throw in the skip will depend on the skip size you have ordered, because there is a weight restriction. For instance, if you are using the skip for heavy construction wastes like rubble or soil, the largest size you would be able to use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, tyres, paint, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and therefore must be disposed of separately.
