Moffat Skip Hire FAQs
Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the street in Moffat?
In the vast majority of circumstances, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, path or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or place of work. If you would like the skip to be placed on land outside of your company or home, you will need to obtain authorisation from the local council in Moffat, which is called a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this on your behalf, and so it’s one less thing to worry about. The local authority does charge a fee for the road permit, and you should be aware before booking that getting the permit can often take up to 2 working days.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Moffat?
To offer a complete skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work in partnership with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This allows us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most affordable and reliable skip hire service.
How long am I able to keep the skip for?
Our regular hire time frame is 2 weeks from the date of delivery. Having said that, when you order the skip, you can choose a pick up date that is best for you. Obviously, there is a possibility that you won’t know how long your skip will take to fill. So if your skip is fully loaded earlier than anticipated, contact us, and we will get it collected at the earliest opportunity.
We will usually be out to pick up your skip within 48 hours. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind this may not be possible at busy periods. Once collected, the skip will be transported to your local waste transfer facility, where it will be processed and sorted.
What are the different skip sizes to choose from?
We can supply a wide range of skip sizes to meet your specific needs, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is a compact skip excellent for modest DIY projects and house clearances. A popular option for larger sized projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.
For Moffat companies which generate a big volume of bulky waste materials, we can supply RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What will happen to my waste once the skip is picked up?
Once you have finished filling up your skip, we will come and get it. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre in or local to Moffat where we will separate the waste into its composite types (timber, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste materials, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as possible.
How much does it cost to hire a skip in Moffat?
The cost of hiring a skip in Moffat is determined by the size of skip you want. The lowest priced skip available will be the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is suitable for small DIY projects and general tidyups. If you want a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yard builders skip, it will naturally cost a bit more. The charge will also increase if you need to have your skip on the road, because you will require a skip permit, which the council charge a fee for.
How do I order a skip?
This is the easy part. First, pick the skip size you would like to hire. Tell us whether the skip will be going on private property (a drive, for example) or on council property (like the road). Next, pick the day you need your skip to be delivered. Check your order and make payment with our safe and secure online payment system. Order complete! We will deliver your skip to Moffat on the date you have chosen.
How much waste can a mini skip hold?
The mini skip is the most compact size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These small bins are perfect for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are excellent for driveways.
They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and broken toys to paving slabs and rubble. Having a volume of around 25-30 bags of rubbish, the mini skip can save you needing to make multiple trips to the local recycling centre.
Am I allowed to throw all kinds of rubbish in the skip?
You are allowed to throw a variety of waste types into your skip. This can include timber, floor tiles, metal or bricks from a house clearance. Plant and bush clippings, top soil and rock from garden work is permitted too. Worktops from your kitchen and old bathroom fittings can also go in a skip.
However, there are some items that can’t be put in a skip due to the possible environmental or health risks they can trigger.
You can’t throw out your freezer, laptop or car tyres. Chemical waste, asbestos or paint is also prohibited in the skip. All of these things incorporate hazardous components in one kind or another. They must be discarded separately from your normal rubbish.
Should you need hazardous waste removal, we might be able to arrange a separate service for this waste. Feel free to contact us for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a residential customer, you might be able to take this kind of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
What sizes do roll-on roll-off skips come in?
If you operate a company in Moffat and want to get rid of large quantities of light waste, a roll-on roll-off container may be a perfect choice. Offered in 20 to 40 cubic yards, these are the largest waste disposal skips that you can hire.
As the label indicates, these type of containers are rolled on and off the lorry with a hook, as opposed to regular skips, that are lifted using chains.
What is classed as a builders skip?
As the name suggests, a builders skip is the size of skip most often supplied for building projects. There are generally two sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 cubic yard skip. They are both heavy-duty bins which can be used to dispose of significant quantities of building and demolition materials, such as soil, rubble and stone.
Although they are branded a builders skip, these can of course be used for a number of other residential and industrial waste disposal tasks.
Do you deliver skips across Dumfries?
As well as delivering skips to Moffat, we also deliver to other towns and villages across Dumfries. Through our network of regional and national skip hire companies, we provide a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to Moffat, Langholm or Lochmaben, we have got you covered.
Do I need to be at home when my skip is due to be delivered?
It is always best if you can be in when anyone delivers something to your property. That allows you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be placed exactly where you want it.
The same thing goes if you have a company. If there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to get a skip delivered if you are not there.
However, should it be unavoidable and gaining access is not an issue, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
Am I allowed to dispose of electronic products in my skip?
Due to the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical goods need to be kept separate from general waste to be recycled or disposed of safely. This includes all electrical items like tumble dryers, TVs, kettles, computers and even hair straighteners.
Is it ok to load the skip above the top?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it hazardous to transport, and you will then have to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This also means you are not allowed to make use of sheets of timber, doors or any other item, as this will increase the size of the skip. We have a legal obligation to make sure that bins are not overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to hire the appropriate size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re uncertain which size you require. We will be glad to help.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like your skip to be delivered during the online order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the day that you’ve requested. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
When you confirm your order before 3pm on Monday to Friday, we will typically have the skip delivered to you the next day.
Although we cannot guarantee what time we will deliver your skip, we try to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you ensure the delivery driver can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful delivery attempts will lead to a charge for the wasted trip.
Will my skip come with a drop down door?
Using a skip that has a drop door will make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is particularly true with heavy waste such as garden soil and stone, which can then be loaded directly into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky objects like pieces of furniture much easier too.
Most skip containers can be provided with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a door is required, and we will do our very best to provide this.
