Perth Skip Hire FAQs
How much does skip hire in Perth cost?
To find out how much it will cost to hire a skip in Perth, type in your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately show you which sizes we provide in your area and how much each option will cost you to order. If your skip is going to be on the road or any other council-owned property, a skip permit cost will also need to be factored in.
Will a Perth skip hire company deliver my skip?
A local skip hire company will likely deliver your skip in Perth. We employ a network of both local and nationwide businesses to allow us to provide our service to customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are fully assessed to make sure they meet the high expectations we require regarding service, price and environmental performance.
What things can I put in the skip?
You are allowed to fill the skip with a wide range of different waste types that are commonly generated from garage clearances, construction projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, bricks, hedge trimmings, pieces of furniture, clothing, cabinets or old bathroom suites.
What you put in the skip would depend on the size you have ordered, as there is a weight restriction. For example, when you will be using your skip for heavy building waste including bricks or garden soil, the maximum size you could hire is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.
Some materials should not be disposed of in the skip. This includes fridges, computer monitors, tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be classed as hazardous waste and must be disposed of separately.
Am I allowed to fill the skip higher than the level load line?
It is very important not to overfill a skip, as you run the risk of being asked to take off excess waste prior to it being picked up. No matter what size you hire, you are only able to load them to a level load. This is a safety condition, because moving an overloaded container will be hazardous, as waste could drop and result in injuries or damage to other people.
To avoid this situation, please be sure to order a size suited to your waste disposal requirements. If your skip is full and you have more waste to get rid of, we are happy to arrange an exchange.
When will the skip be delivered to me?
We will ask you to confirm when you would like the skip to be delivered as part of the order process, and we’ll ensure that it’s with you on the date that you’ve asked for. The vast majority of our deliveries are made between Monday and Saturday.
If you complete your booking before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have the skip delivered to you the following day.
Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we try to provide an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.
All we request is that you make sure the delivery driver can access your required delivery site, as failed deliveries will result in a charge for the wasted journey.
What will happen to the waste in the skip?
The waste in the skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the waste will be sorted by machinery and by hand into various waste streams, like soil, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Sorting the rubbish in this way helps to maximise the volume that can be reused and recycled. Our goal and motivation is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the volume of waste that ends up in landfill.
Do I have to be home when the skip is delivered?
No, you don’t need to be home when we are delivering your skip. Provided that we can gain access to the place you need it delivered, we are able to take care of everything.
If you are not going to be in, just provide us with any relevant delivery directions when you book your order. For instance, you may need the skip to be dropped at a particular area of your property. Alternatively, you might want to make sure the skip doesn’t obstruct access to your garage.
No matter what the case may be, let us know when you place your order, and then we will make sure your directions are passed to the delivery driver.
What size roll-on roll-off skips do you provide?
A roll-on roll-off skip (RORO) is a substantial container used to transport large amounts of waste materials. In the majority of cases, these skips are hired for industrial uses. However, residential customers can also order them. You should look at the space they will take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they must only be hired for light materials including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not appropriate for the removal of soil and rubble.
How many different skip sizes are available?
We provide a whole range of skip capacities to household and business customers throughout the UK. We have a skip to suit all requirements – from the modest 2 yard mini skip to the massive 40 yard roll-on roll-off container.
Here are the different sized skips on offer, with a rough guide to the amount of waste each skip is capable of holding:
- 2 Cubic Yard – 20-30 bin bags
- 4 Cubic Yard – 30-40 bin bags
- 6 Cubic Yard – 50-60 bin bags
- 8 Cubic Yard – 60-80 bin bags
- 10 Cubic Yard – 80-100 bin bags
- 12 Cubic Yard – 100-120 bin bags
- 14 Cubic Yard – 120-140 bin bags
- 16 Cubic Yard – 140-160 bin bags

Can I dispose of electrical products in my skip?
Electronic items such as tv sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be placed in your skip with other waste. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electric powered objects should be separated from other rubbish. This helps ensure that they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly way.
Can you deliver skips across Perth and Kinross?
In addition to delivering skips to Perth, we also deliver to other towns and villages throughout Perth and Kinross. Through our network of regional and national waste management companies, we offer a truly nationwide service. So whether you need a skip delivering to a house or business premises in Perth, Blairgowrie and Rattray or Crieff, we have got it covered.
How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?
For those who have a small amount of waste to throw out, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is called a mini skip is different from business to business, depending on what sizes they offer.
The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies opt to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Price is dependent on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.
Mini skips are perfect for residential jobs like modest DIY projects and shed tidy ups. If you would like it positioned on your driveway and need room to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a great choice.
Will my skip be supplied with a drop door?
Getting a skip with a drop down door can make loading waste into it much easier. This is particularly true with hefty materials like dirt and hardcore, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It may also make loading up big bulky items such as furniture easier also.
Most skips can be provided with a drop door, but this can sometimes depend upon your location and availability. Let us know when making your order if a drop door is required, and we will do our best to provide this.
How do you hire a skip in Perth?
Hiring a skip in Perth with us is incredibly straightforward. Pick the skip size you will need and then enter a couple of details about where and when you would like your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for your skip using our safe and secure online payment system. We will send you a confirmation email and then schedule to get your skip delivered on the date selected.
How long can I keep the skip for?
Typically, you can have your skip for a maximum of two week. This means you do not need to rush through your project. If you have completed your project or the skip is loaded ahead of the 14-day mark, we will be happy to come and get the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.
What size is a builder’s skip?
The builder’s skip is regarded as the frequent skip used across the UK. Available in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, a builder’s skip is great for most building and demolition work, which is where the name stems from.
The 8 yd builder’s skip is the largest size that can be used for heavy waste materials including soil, concrete, rock and rubble.
If I require a skip on the road in Perth, will I need a permit?
This depends upon where the skip will be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or on your company premises.
If you do have to get a permit, we can arrange this for you as part of the service. Just tell us during the order process, and then we can make the necessary arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for the permit, so if you can place your skip on private land, it will save you some pounds.
