Tobermory Skip Hire FAQs

Do I have to be home whenever the skip is delivered?

When you are getting a skip delivered to your house, it is always best to be at home at the time the skip is delivered. Then you can make sure the skip lorry has complete access and that the skip can be positioned precisely where you need it. The same is true when you have a skip delivered to business property, particularly if gates restrict access.

However, if this is not feasible, you do not have to be concerned. Simply let us know when placing your order, and then we will handle the rest.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) bins are large commercial size skips used mainly within the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, making them ideal for companies that produce significant amounts of waste materials.

How long am I able to keep the skip for?

Typically, you can keep the skip for a maximum of 2 weeks. Which means you do not need to hurry through your project. When you have finished your project or the skip is loaded prior to the 14-day mark, we will gladly come and collect the skip earlier. Just give us a call or get in touch on our website, and we will be out to pick it up as quickly as possible.

When will my skip be delivered?

When your skip is ordered, we will try our very best to deliver it for you on a date that suits you. We can typically offer a following day delivery service for orders booked before 3pm on Monday to Friday. This will be subject to having the skip placed on private property, because to be on public property (for example a road), you will have to gain a skip permit which will take a couple of days to arrange.

As a result of several factors that may impact our service, we can never guarantee a precise delivery time. Having said that, we will always aim to let you know whether you can expect it turning up within a AM or PM slot.

What size is a mini skip?

For those who have a small amount of waste to dispose of, the mini skip could be the perfect choice. What size is known as a mini skip differs from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

The most popular size for the mini skip is 2 cubic yards. However, some companies choose to have a 3 cubic yard skip as their smallest option. Cost is dependent on the specific size you hire, instead of the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are great for household tasks including modest DIY projects and garage tidy ups. If you need it put on your driveway and need space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them a good choice.

Do all skips have a drop door?

If you are ordering a builder’s skip, the likelihood is that it will have a drop door. This is made for disposing of hefty building and construction waste materials, as it can be pushed in the skip with a wheelbarrow.

Some mini skips and 4 yarders also include a drop-down door, although these are typically more uncommon. This is because these sizes are typically low enough at the ends to be able to tip a wheelbarrow of waste into them.

If you need a drop door for your job, please let us know when ordering. We will do our utmost to make sure a container which has a drop door is supplied.

What size is a builders skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip means the size of skip most frequently supplied for building jobs. There are usually two sizes that may be labelled as being a builder’s skip – the 6 yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty skips that you can use to dispose of substantial volumes of construction and demolition waste materials, including dirt, rubble and rock.

Although they are labelled a builders skip, these can of course be used for various other residential and business waste disposal jobs.

Who will deliver my skip?

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, select the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip shall be going on your own property (a drive, for example) or public property (such as the road). Then, select the date you need your skip to be delivered. Confirm your order and then make payment with our safe and secure online payment platform. All done!

Do I need permission to get a skip delivered on the road in Tobermory?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a road, pavement or grass verge. You will not require a permit if the skip will be on your private property, such as a driveway or inside your company premises.

Should you need to get a permit, we will arrange this on your behalf as part of the service. Simply let us know while completing the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with your local authority. They will charge a fee for this, so if you can have your skip on private property, you will save some money.

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

Please don’t overfill the skip as this will make it unsafe to move, and you will probably have to empty any items over the level load line. This also means you are unable to use sheets of timber, doors or another item, since this will increase the height of the skip. We have a legal responsibility to make sure that bins aren’t overfilled or overweight before moving them.

Please be sure to hire the correct size of skip for your needs and get in contact if you’re unsure which size you require. We would be pleased to help.
