Tain Skip Hire FAQs

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

The cost of getting a skip in Tain will depend on the size of skip you need. The least expensive option available is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, which is perfect for small DIY projects and clearances. If you require a larger sized skip, such as an 8 yd builder’s skip, it will naturally be more expensive. The price will also be more if you want to have a skip positioned on the road, as you will need a permit, which the council charge a fee for.

How quickly can you deliver a skip in Tain?

We will make sure your skip is delivered when required, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order before 3pm Monday to Friday, we can usually deliver your skip the next day.

Although we are not able to promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

You have to make sure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a failed delivery effort will often incur a fee for the wasted journey.

If I need a skip on the road in Tain, will I need to have a permit?

Generally, it will be possible to get a skip placed on the street, pavement or grass verge outside of your home or business. But to do this, you have got to get consent from the local authority in Tain, which is called a skip permit. We will arrange this on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry. The local authority will impose a fee for this license, and it may sometimes take up to 24-2 days for them to approve this.

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

You don’t need to be at your property when your skip is going to be delivered, but it can help. Being there when your skip is due to be delivered means that you can ensure the lorry driver is given full access and that the skip will be placed precisely where you need it. Similarly, if your skip is delivered to your company premises, we will appreciate your assistance during the time of delivery, especially if gates will restrict the lorry’s entry.

Having said that, for those who can’t be available at the time of delivery, you don’t need to worry. We just ask you to let us know when you place the order, and we will organise things from there.

What is a mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size delivered by skip companies and is perfect for smaller DIY jobs, garage clearances and general tidy-ups. For the majority of companies, the mini skip is a 2 cubic yard skip, which will contain the equivalent of roughly 25 black bags worth of rubbish.

Instead of a 2 yard skip, some skip companies provide a 3 cubic yard as their smallest skip. They will likely refer to this as a mini skip, which may be a bit confusing. But rest assured, the cost of hiring a skip is based on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make a difference.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are offered in a selection of sizes to match various waste disposal requirements. Each container is measured by volume, generally in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bin bags of waste, which is good for small residential projects.

Next up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold around 35 bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the size of a small car and is often referred to as a midi skip. The 4 yard is a good choice for garden clearances and home refurbishment jobs.

If you have a more substantial rubbish disposal task to deal with, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable option. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name suggests, these represent the most common sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, including soil and rubble. However they can just as well be used for household waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

We also supply 10-16 cubic yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. For more information about all the different skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

What will happen to the waste in my skip once I have finished?

Once your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and transport it to a local waste recycling station, where it will be processed. The rubbish gets segregated into various waste types, such as stone, soil and cardboard. This helps to ensure that as much of the collection can be recycled as possible. Our company is proud of our commitment to protecting the environment by sending as little to landfill as possible!

What sizes do roll-on roll-off containers come in?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) skips are huge commercial size skips that are used mainly in the commercial sector. They come in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them excellent for companies that generate large volumes of waste materials.

How long am I able to hire a skip for?

Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. This means you don’t need to rush through your project. When you have completed your project or the skip is full before the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or contact us online, and we will be out to get it as quickly as possible.

Am I able to throw all kinds of rubbish in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you can fill your skip with a wide range of different materials. After all, there are lots of types of rubbish that can result from garden work, building work and household clearances.

Some of the most typical things which we find in skips include garden soil, wood, bush trimmings, cabinets, sinks, as well as other household items.

There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This includes any electrical products (fridges and freezers, monitors or laptops for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and paint. These are all considered hazardous waste, and so disposing of them needs to follow a completely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.

What is a builders skip?

The phrase builders skip can mean two sizes – the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip. The term originates from the fact that they are the most frequent sizes that are used by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suited to numerous domestic and industrial jobs. These are the largest size skips that you can use for hefty builders waste like soil, rubble and concrete.

How do you hire a skip in Tain?

Is it okay to fill my skip above the top?

You should not fill the skip beyond the level load line. If you fill it up over the tip of this level, it means that the skip is not secure to move, and you can be asked to remove the extra waste before it can be collected.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

Generally speaking, nearly all skips can be supplied with a drop down door, dependant upon the size, availability and area. If you want a drop-down door, be sure to let us know when ordering your skip.

Ordering a skip with a drop door is mainly beneficial if choosing a large builder’s skip, because it means that you can wheelbarrow waste materials straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini and midi skips, since they are low enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Am I able to dispose of electrical products in my skip?

Unfortunately this is not allowed, because electrical products such as old TVs, freezers, printers and computer monitors are classified as hazardous waste. As a result of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, these items need to be kept separate so that they can be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly fashion.
