Turriff Skip Hire FAQs

Am I allowed to dispose of all types of waste in a skip?

This is among the most popular questions people have about skip hire. What is important to consider is that you can fill up your skip with a wide variety of different materials. After all, there are so many kinds of rubbish that may come from garden projects, construction work and house clearances.

Some of the most typical items that we find in skips include garden soil, timber, tree cuttings, kitchen units, bathroom suites, and various household products.

However, there are some waste materials that you are not allowed to discard in your skip. This consists of any electronic objects (tumble dryers, televisions or laptops for example), old tyres, asbestos, plasterboard and chemicals. These are all regarded as hazardous waste materials, and so getting rid of them must follow an entirely different procedure to ensure they do not result in damage to the environment.

How do I hire a skip?

This is the easy part. First, choose the size of skip you would like to hire. Let us know if the skip is going to be going on your own property (a driveway, for example) or council property (such as the street). After that, select the day you want the skip to be delivered. Check your order details and make payment using our safe and secure online payment system. That’s it! We will deliver your chosen skip to Turriff on the date you have selected.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

When you have a small quantity of rubbish to get rid of, the mini skip could be the ideal choice. What size is called a mini skip varies from business to business, dependant upon what sizes they supply.

2 cubic yards is considered the most common size for the mini skip. However, some firms opt to provide a 3 yard container for their smallest option. Cost depends on the specific size you order, rather than the phrase “mini skip”.

Mini skips are best for domestic tasks including small DIY projects and garage clean ups. If you need it put on your driveway and want space to park your car, the mini skip’s small footprint makes them the best choice.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can generally hire a skip for up to two weeks from the date that it is delivered. To ensure the pick up is as convenient as possible, there is the choice of offering a preferred collection day when placing your order.

Otherwise, simply tell us when you have finished with your skip, and we will prepare to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It can take a little longer to pick up your skip over busy periods, but we will always endeavour to come as swiftly as possible.

Is it okay to fill the skip higher than level load line?

It is important to not overload the skip. You can not pass the level load mark that is indicated on the side of the skip. When the skip is overloaded, it is very hazardous to transport. This means that if you overfill your skip, you could be required to remove the excess rubbish. No matter how secure you think the skip to be, it cannot be picked up if overloaded. This includes using doors or any other large flat pieces to build up around the waste. This can be dangerous and is therefore prohibited.

Do you deliver to other areas in Aberdeenshire?

Absolutely. We can supply skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of approved waste management businesses, we are able to offer skips to both residential and commercial customers throughout Aberdeenshire and elsewhere in the UK.

What size is a roll-on roll-off container?

Roll-on roll-off (RORO) containers are huge industrial size skips used mainly in the commercial sector. They are available in 20-40 cubic yards, which makes them ideal for businesses that generate large volumes of waste.

Do I need to be at home when my skip is delivered?

When you are having a skip delivered to your property, it is usually best to be in when the skip is delivered. Then you can ensure the lorry has full access and that the skip can be located precisely where you need it. The same applies for those who have a skip delivered to business property, especially when gates restrict access.

On the other hand, when this isn’t possible, you don’t need to be concerned. Just let us know when you are making your order, and then we will handle the rest.

Can I get a skip which has a drop door?

In general, nearly all skips can be supplied with a hinged door, depending on size, availability and location. If you need a drop down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Having a skip which has a drop door is mainly useful if you are choosing a large builder’s skip, because it enables you to wheelbarrow waste straight into the skip. This is not as important for mini skips, because they are low enough at the edges for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

Will a skip hire company from Turriff deliver my skip?

To offer a comprehensive skip hire and waste management service in locations across the UK, we work with a wide range of local and nationwide companies. This enables us to cover all corners of the UK and helps to ensure we can supply customers with the most cost effective and trusted skip hire service.

What is classed as being a builders skip?

The builders skip is regarded as the common skip used in the UK. Offered in either a 6 or 8 cubic yard capacity, the builders skip is great for most building work, which is where the name stems from.

The 8 yard builders skip will be the biggest size that can be used for hefty materials such as dirt, concrete, bricks and gravel.

When will my skip be delivered?

We will ask you to confirm when you need your skip to be delivered during the online 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 order before 3pm on a Monday to Friday, we can normally have your skip delivered to you the following day.

Although we can’t promise what time we will deliver, we strive to give you an AM or PM delivery slot to manage your day more easily.

All we ask is that you make sure the delivery lorry can access your required delivery position, as unsuccessful deliveries can lead to a charge for the wasted trip.

Can I have a skip delivered on the road in Turriff?

This depends upon where the skip is going to be positioned. You will only need to have a skip permit when it is placed on public property, like a street, pavement or grass verge. You do not require a permit if the skip is on your private property, like a drive or within your company premises.

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

We will immediately display which skip sizes we offer in your location and how much each option will cost to hire.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips come in a variety of sizes to match various waste disposal needs. They are measured by volume, typically in cubic yards. The smallest of these sizes is the 2 yard skip, also known as the mini skip. It can hold approximately 25 bags of waste, which is great for small household jobs.

The next size up is the 4 yard skip, which can be used to hold approximately 35 bin bags of waste. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is often known as a midi skip. The 4 yard skip is a good option for garden shed clearances and household refurbishment jobs.

When you have a more significant rubbish disposal job to handle, a builder’s skip could be the most suitable choice. These come in both 6 and 8 cubic yards. As the name implies, these represent the most frequent sizes hired by builders for building and demolition waste, like clay and hardcore. But they can equally well be used for domestic rubbish such as outdated furniture or bathroom suites.

We can also supply 10-16 yard bins and industrial 20-40 yard roll-on roll-off containers. To get more info on the range of skip sizes we have available, please click the link below.

Guide to skip sizes

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

I’m afraid it is not permitted, since electronic products including old TVs, fridges, computers and computer monitors are classed as hazardous waste. Because of the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, electrical objects must be kept separate to allow them to be recycled and disposed of in a safe and eco-friendly manner.

Where does my rubbish go once the skip is picked up?

After you have finished filling your skip, we will come and get it. It will be taken to a waste recycling facility either in or local to Turriff where we separate the waste into its composite types (wood, metal, soil, etc.). By separating the rubbish, we can reuse and recycle as much of it as is possible.
