Skip Hire Montrose

If you are looking for affordable skip hire in Montrose, you are definitely in the right place. We employ a network of regional and national skip hire and recycling companies to give a reliable and efficient service to both residential and business clients.

We offer an extensive choice of sizes suitable for all waste disposal needs. From the small mini skip all the way up to the 16 yard bin, not forgetting our collection of industrial roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers.

We are able to provide skips in Montrose and the nearby towns and villages. If you are having a skip positioned on your private property (such as a driveway), we can in most circumstances schedule delivery within 24 hours. Skips that will be dropped on the road take a bit more time, since we have to order a skip permit from the local authority.

By using our simple online booking system, you can order a skip within just a few clicks and get it delivered anywhere in Montrose.

For further info about hiring a skip plus the services we offer, we have addressed several of the FAQs below. Can’t find what you want? Contact a member of our team who will gladly help.

Montrose Skip Hire FAQs

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place your order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the next day. In some instances, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days will be confirmed as part of the online order process.

Can you deliver to other areas in Angus?

Indeed, we can offer a national skip hire and waste management service. We can offer skips to areas throughout Angus, such as Montrose, Carnoustie, Monifieth and Brechin. So regardless of where you require a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.

Do I need to be at home when the skip is going to be delivered?

You don’t have to be at your property when the skip is delivered, but it can help. Being in whenever the skip is due to be delivered means that you can make sure the delivery driver can be given full access and that the skip can be placed exactly where you want it. Similarly, if the skip is hired to your company premises, we will appreciate your help at the time of delivery, especially if gates restrict the lorry’s access.

Having said that, for those who can’t be around for the delivery, don’t worry. We just ask that you let us know when you place your order, and then we will organise everything from there.

How do you order a skip?

We have built our online booking system with speed and simplicity at its core. The first task is to enter your delivery address to see the range of skip sizes we can deliver in Montrose. Pick the right size to meet your requirements and provide the details of when and where you want your skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm your order once your order is done!

How much waste can you fit in a mini skip?

If you are looking for a low cost skip to dispose of some domestic waste, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (depending on area), the mini skip is a cost-effective rubbish disposal solution to take on numerous tasks.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be situated on the side of the street, subject to getting a skip permit from the council.

Although most commonly chosen by household customers, the mini skip can also handle smaller commercial jobs.

Which size skips will have a door?

Using a skip with a drop door will make loading waste into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with hefty materials like dirt and stone, which can then be loaded straight into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It may also make throwing away big bulky items such as pieces of furniture a lot easier also.

The majority of skip containers can be provided with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when you make your booking if a drop door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

Can I put electronic items in my skip?

Unfortunately it is not permitted, as electronic items such as old TVs, freezers, printers and monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical items need to be kept separate so they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco friendly way.

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

The builders skip is probably the most popular skip hired throughout the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builders skip is perfect for most building tasks, which is where the name comes from.

The 8 yard builder’s skip is the biggest option which can be used for heavy waste including soil, concrete, stone and rubble.

How much does it cost to hire a skip in Montrose?

This depends upon the size you will need and whether you require a council permit. As you would expect, the smallest skip (the 2 cubic yard mini skip) will be the least expensive option. The most costly and largest option is the 40 yard RORO container, which is used primarily in business settings.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are big commercial size skips used predominantly in the business sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for companies that generate significant volumes of waste materials.

What skip sizes can you supply?

We are able to provide a full range of skip sizes to meet your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 yard mini skip, which is a compact skip suitable for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A popular option for bigger projects, refurbishments and construction work is the 8 yard builders skip.

For Montrose companies with a large amount of bulky waste, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), between 20-40 cubic yards in size.

Am I able to put all sorts of rubbish in my skip?

A skip can be used to dispose of lots of different types of waste. We are experienced in picking up and handling a multitude of items from building work, garden projects and household tidy-ups. A few examples of permitted waste materials can include:

  • Home furniture
  • Hedge cuttings
  • Soil
  • Bricks and rubble
  • Bathroom suites
  • Cabinets and units

Many waste materials are allowed, and therefore whether you would like to discard furniture, plastic materials, timber or clothing, we can normally take your waste away.

The volume and items you throw into your skip can vary depending on the size skip you have chosen. All skips do have a maximum weight limit for safety. So if you need to get rid of top soil and rubble, for example, the largest size you would be able to hire would be the 8 cubic yard skip.

Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?

There are a few waste items you will not be permitted to discard in your skip. The reason behind this is that some items incorporate hazardous components which can be damaging to the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, therefore they have to be discarded separately under UK regulations.

A few examples of the goods that are restricted include:

  • Paint cans
  • Solvents Fridges
  • Gas canisters
  • Computer screens
  • Batteries
  • Car tyres
  • Chemicals
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard

How long am I able to hire the skip for?

Normally, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you don’t have to rush through your project. Once you have finished your project or the skip is loaded before the 14-day mark, we will be glad to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch online, and we will be out to collect it as quickly as possible.

Will a skip hire company from Montrose deliver my skip?

To offer a thorough skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work together with a number of local and national companies. This enables us to cover all areas of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to supply customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.

Am I allowed to load the skip above the top?

You must not fill the skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that your skip will not be safe to transport, and you might be asked to take off the extra waste prior to it being picked up.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Montrose?

If at all possible, you want to have the skip left on to a hard surface. For anyone who is doing a residential project, then the driveway will be ideal. When it is a commercial job, then a car park or business premises is the ideal solution. Having said that, when neither option is available, the road or grass verge may be your only choice. As this is public property, you will need to have a permit from the local authority. This is called a skip permit, and will be required for a skip to be dropped on a road, grass verge or any other public property in Montrose. If this is needed, we will arrange for the permit to be granted on your behalf. An extra cost, paid to the local council, will be added to the price of your chosen skip size.

What happens to the rubbish in my skip?

The rubbish in your skip will be taken to the local waste recycling station. Here the contents will be sorted by machinery and also by hand into different waste materials, including metal, cardboard, stone and wood. Processing the waste in this manner helps to increase the quantity that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and commitment is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the volume of waste ending up in landfill.
