Thurso Skip Hire FAQs

How much will it cost to hire a skip in Thurso?

To discover how much it is going to cost to hire a skip in Thurso, enter your delivery postcode into the search box above. We will immediately display the sizes we provide in your area and how much each one will cost to order. If the skip is going to be on the street or any other council-owned property, a skip permit fee will also need to be factored in.

When will my skip be delivered?

When you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered the very next day. Sometimes, we will even give you a same day delivery option. Availability and delivery days are confirmed as part of the online order process.

What types of waste am I able to dispose of in a skip?

This is one of the most common questions people have about our skip hire service. What is important to keep in mind is that you can fill your skip with a variety of different materials. After all, there are many kinds of waste which will come from garden work, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most common items that we pick up in our skips include soil, wood, tree cuttings, kitchen cabinets, bathroom suites, and various household items.

There are some items that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This can include any electrical goods (tumble dryers, televisions and printers for example), car tyres, asbestos sheets, plasterboard and chemicals. They are all classed as hazardous waste, and so getting rid of them must comply with a completely different process to make sure they do not result in damage to the environment.

How can I order a skip?

Ordering a skip shouldn’t be hard. That is why we have made the order procedure as easy as possible. First, type in your address to see all the different skips we are able to deliver to Thurso. Pick the size you want to order, and confirm if it is going to be delivered on your own property. Enter your information and make payment using our secure payment platform.

As soon as your order is done, we will send a confirmation email with all your booking details. You can then sit back and relax while we take care of the rest.

Am I able to throw away electronic items in my skip?

As a result of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electric items must be kept separate from general waste materials to get recycled or disposed of safely and securely. This can include all electric items including cookers, TVs, toasters, laptops and even hair straighteners.

What size roll-on roll-off skips can you offer?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are big industrial scale skips used predominantly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them perfect for organisations that generate large amounts of waste materials.

Do I need permission to have a skip delivered on the road in Thurso?

In most situations, your skip can be delivered on your drive, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your house or workplace. If you want your skip to be placed on land outside of your business or house, you need to obtain permission from the local council in Thurso, which is known as a permit. If required, we will gladly arrange this on your behalf, so it’s one less point to think about. The council does charge a fee for your license, plus you should be aware before placing your order that getting the permit can sometimes take up to two working days.

Who will deliver my skip?

To provide a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in towns and villages throughout the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide businesses. This allows us to cover the whole of the UK and helps to guarantee we are able to offer customers with the most cost effective and reliable skip hire service.

Is it okay to fill up the skip above the level load mark?

No, you are only allowed to fill the skip up to the level load line. Loading waste materials up over this line would make it unsafe to transport, and you might be asked to take off the extra waste before the skip can be picked up. This includes using doors, sheets of wood or other materials to increase the skip height. Again, this will make transportation of the skip hazardous and it could also make it overweight.

Do all skips have a drop door?

Getting a skip which has a drop down door can make filling rubbish into it so much easier. This is especially the case with hefty waste materials like garden soil or rubble, which can then be loaded into the skip using a wheelbarrow. It will also make disposing of big bulky objects such as household furniture easier also.

Most skips can be supplied with a drop down door, although it will sometimes depend upon area and availability. Let us know when you place your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our absolute best to provide this.

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

Whenever your skip is full and ready for collection, we will pick it up and take it to a nearby waste transfer centre, where it will be processed. The waste will get segregated into several different waste streams, such as stone, soil and paper. This helps to ensure that as much of the waste will be recycled as possible. We are very proud of our commitment to the environment by sending as little waste to landfill as possible!

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can typically keep your skip for up to two weeks from the date of delivery. You are able to give a chosen collection date at the time you confirm your order. Otherwise, you can tell us once you have finished, and then we will organise your collection. Normally, this will be the following working day, although it can sometimes take a little bit longer over busy times.

Should I stay in when the skip will be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be in when anyone delivers anything to your property. That enables you to ensure there is sufficient access for your delivery, and the skip can be positioned just where you need it.

The same thing applies if you have a business. If you have a gate or security, it might not be possible to have a skip delivered if you are not present.

However, when it is unavoidable and access is not an issue, you don’t have to be there when the skip is delivered.

How many different skip sizes are there?

We can supply a full-range of skip sizes to meet your particular requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. Our smallest available skip is the 2 cubic yard mini skip, a compact skip ideal for modest DIY jobs and domestic clearances. A common option for larger projects, refurbishments and building work is the 8 cubic yard builders skip.

For Thurso businesses with a large quantity of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), ranging from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

What size is a builder’s skip?

The term builders skip can mean two different sizes – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. The term stems from the fact that these are the most popular sizes that are hired by builders and tradespeople.

These big skips are suitable for a multitude of household and business projects. These are the biggest skips that can be used for heavy builders waste like garden soil, rubble and bricks.

How much waste can you fit in the mini skip?

If you are searching for a cheap skip to get rid of some domestic rubbish, the mini skip might be just the thing you need. With a choice of either a 2 or 3 cubic yard capacity (based on your location), the mini skip is a cost-effective waste disposal solution to handle numerous jobs.

A mini skip can fit on the smallest of drives but can also be placed on the side of the road, subject to getting a skip permit.

Although most often chosen by domestic customers, the mini skip can also handle small commercial jobs.
