Nairn Skip Hire FAQs
What different sizes do skips come in?
When it comes to ordering a skip in Nairn, you will have several options to select from, ranging from 2 to 40 cubic yards in volume.
The 2 yard container, also known as the mini skip, will be the smallest choice available. This compact container is great for modest household clearances and DIY tasks.
The next available size is the 4 yard midi skip, which can hold the equivalent of approximately 35-40 bin bags of rubbish.
After the midi are the builder’s skips, that are available in either 6 or 8 yards. They are the most popular sizes hired, as builders and tradespeople frequently use them. However their large capacity also means they are perfect for household tidy ups involving large items like pieces of furniture and beds.
We are able to offer 10, 12, 14 and 16 cubic yard containers for anyone with even larger rubbish disposal requirements. These containers are only suitable for light waste, so they can’t be used to dispose of soil or rubble.
For further details about the different skip sizes available, including proportions, have a look at our guide to skip sizes.
When will my skip be delivered?
We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. For those who order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the following day.
Although we cannot guarantee a precise delivery time, we will always do our best to arrive within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.
You should ensure the skip lorry will be able to access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.
What size roll-on roll-off containers can you provide?
The roll-on roll-off container, sometimes known as a RORO, is a large container that is used to dispose of large quantities of rubbish. These bins are primarily for industrial use but can be used by household clients too. Having said that, you will need plenty of space because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much bigger when compared to the average skip you will see on a neighbour’s driveway.
As a result of the size, roll-on roll-off skips should only be hired for light materials such as plastics, wood and cardboard, and so they are not suited to disposing of soil and bricks.
Is it okay to pile up the waste in my skip?
Please don’t overfill your skip as this makes it dangerous to transport, and you will then have to empty any rubbish higher than the level load mark. This means that you are not allowed to make use of sheets of wood, doors or some other object, since this will increase the height of the skip. Skip companies have a legal duty to make sure that skips aren’t overfilled or overweight before transporting them.
Please make sure to order the appropriate sized skip for your needs and get in touch if you’re not sure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
How much waste will a builders skip hold?
The phrase builder’s skip can refer to two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term originates from the fact that these are the most common sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.
These big containers are suitable for a multitude of domestic and industrial tasks. They are the biggest sizes which you can use for weighty builders waste including top soil, stone and gravel.
Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Nairn?
In most situations, your skip can be delivered onto your driveway, the road, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you would like your skip to be positioned on land outside of your company or residence, you will need to secure authorisation from the local council in Nairn, which is known as a permit. If required, we would gladly arrange this on your behalf, and so it’s one less issue to worry about. The local authority will charge a fee for the permit, plus you should know before placing your order that securing the licence will often take up to two working days.
Can you deliver to other areas in Nairn?
Yes, we provide a nationwide skip hire and waste management service. We can offer our range of skips to areas across Nairn, including Nairn, %OTHER1%, %OTHER2% and %OTHER3%. So regardless of where you want a skip to get delivered, we have got it covered.
Am I able to dispose of electronic items in my skip?
Unfortunately this is not allowed, as electronic items like old TVs, fridge freezers, laptops and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste materials. Due to The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electronic items need to be kept separate for them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.
Do you use local skip hire companies in Nairn?
To provide a thorough skip hire and waste management service across the UK, we work with a variety of local and nationwide businesses. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to guarantee we can provide customers with the most cost effective and dependable skip hire service.
Do I need to be home when the skip is due to be delivered?
It is usually a good idea to be there when anybody delivers anything to your home. You can then ensure there is access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped exactly where you need it.
The same applies if you have a business. If there is a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.
Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not a problem, you do not need to be there when the skip is delivered.
How big is a mini skip?
The mini skip will be the most compact skip available from skip companies and is ideal for smaller DIY tasks, house clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of firms, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which can contain the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of waste.
Instead of a 2 cubic yard skip, some companies offer you a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as being a mini skip, which can be a little confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is labelled as a mini skip or not won’t make a difference.
How much does skip hire in Nairn cost?
Our aim is to offer the most affordable skip hire service in Nairn. The price you pay will, of course, depend upon the size of skip that you order. 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 highway or other council property, you will also need to factor in the additional cost of the skip permit.
What size skips will have a door?
Nearly all skips can be delivered with a drop down door, which makes them easier to load. However, we cannot always guarantee this. If you need a skip which has a drop-down door, please tell us when making your order, and then we can do our best to accommodate.
A skip which has a drop-down door makes it easier to load waste into the container, especially with heavy materials, like garden soil and gravel, which can be pushed in using a wheelbarrow. It also makes it easier to throw in big and bulky objects, like household furniture.
How long am I allowed to hire the skip for?
The fee for hiring a skip will normally have a hire period of up to two weeks. In most cases, that gives you plenty of time to fill up the skip. However, if you need more time, let us know, and we will see what we can do.
Obviously, should you finish with your skip earlier, we are happy to arrange your pick up. Just contact us once you have finished, and then we will prepare to send out one of our lorry drivers to collect the skip at the earliest opportunity.
Where does the waste go when the skip is collected?
Once you have finished filling your skip, we come and pick it up. It will be transported to a waste transfer centre either in or local to Nairn where we will separate the rubbish into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the waste from your skip, we can recycle as much of it as is possible.
How can I hire a skip?
We have developed our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery address to check out all the different skip sizes we are able to provide in Nairn. Pick the best size to meet your requirements and enter the details of when and where you would like the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with our secure payment platform, and we’ll send you an email to verify the transaction as soon as your order is done!
What things can I put in my skip?
Your skip may be used to get rid of a variety of types of waste materials. We are used to collecting and processing a multitude of items generated from construction work, garden projects and home clearances. Examples of permitted waste products include things like:
- Home furniture
- Hedge cuttings
- Bathroom suites
- Cabinets and units
The majority of waste types are usually allowed, and so whether you wish to get rid of furniture, plastics, timber or textiles, we can usually take your rubbish away.
The quantity and waste types you throw in the skip may vary according to the size skip you have ordered. All skips do have a weight limit for safety reasons. So if you want to dispose of top soil and bricks, as an example, the biggest size you would be permitted to use would be the 8 cubic yard skip.
Is there anything that I can’t put in the skip?
There are some waste items you will not be able to throw out in your skip. The reason for this is that some items incorporate hazardous materials that may damage the environment. They could also be hazardous to human health, and so they have to be disposed of separately within UK legislation.
A few examples of the items that are restricted include:
- Paint tins
- Solvents Refrigerators
- Gas cylinders
- Computer monitors
- Battery packs
- Car tyres
