Uddingston Skip Hire FAQs

What is the cost of hiring a skip in Uddingston?

Our goal is to provide the cheapest skip hire service in Uddingston. The price you pay will, naturally, be determined by the size of skip that you order. It ranges from the mini skip, which is the cheapest choice, all the way up to the 40 cubic yard RORO container. If you need to have a skip situated on the street or any other local authority property, you will also need to factor in the added expense of a skip permit.

What different sizes do skips come in?

We are able to offer a wide selection of skip sizes to match your specific requirements, from 2 to 40 cubic yards. The smallest skip is the 2 yard mini skip, a compact skip suitable for small DIY jobs and house clearances. A popular choice for larger jobs, renovations and construction work is the 8 cubic yard skip.

For Uddingston businesses with a big amount of bulky waste materials, we can provide RoRo containers (roll on roll off skips), which range from 20-40 cubic yards in size.

How do you order a skip online?

Ordering a skip in Uddingston through us is very simple. Pick the skip size you require and then input a handful of details about where and when you want your skip to be delivered. After that you can pay for the skip using our secure online payment system. We will send a confirmation email and prepare to have your skip delivered on the date selected.

How long can I hire the skip for?

You can typically keep the skip for up to 14 days from the day that it is delivered. To ensure the collection is as convenient as possible, there is the option of giving a preferred collection time when you place your order.

Alternatively, just let us know when you’ve finished with your skip, and we will arrange to collect sooner – in the majority of cases, it will be the following working day.

It can take a bit longer to pick up your skip during busy times, however we will always endeavour to come as quickly as possible.

How much waste can a mini skip hold?

The mini skip is the most compact size delivered by skip firms and is great for smaller DIY jobs, garden clearances and general tidy-ups. For most companies, the mini skip will be a 2 cubic yard skip, which will hold the equivalent of about 25 bin bags worth of rubbish.

Rather than a 2 cubic yard skip, some firms will provide a 3 cubic yard as the smallest container. They will likely refer to this as the mini skip, which may be a little confusing. But rest assured, the fee for hiring the skip depends on the actual size of the skip you order, so whether it is classed as a mini skip or not will not make any difference.

Do I need to be at home whenever the skip is going to be delivered?

It usually is best if you can be there when anybody delivers anything to your house. That enables you to make sure there is sufficient access for your delivery, plus the skip can be dropped precisely where you need it.

The same goes for those who have a company. When there is a gate or security, it may not be possible to have a skip delivered when you are not there.

Nonetheless, if it is unavoidable and the access is not an issue, you do not have to be there when the skip is being delivered.

Do I need approval to get a skip delivered on the street in Uddingston?

In most cases, your skip can be delivered on to your driveway, the street, pathway or grass verge and deliveries can be made to your home or place of work. If you want the skip to be placed on land outside of your business or home, you will have to receive permission from your local council in Uddingston, which is referred to as a skip permit. If necessary, we will gladly organise this for you, therefore it’s one less issue to think about. The council will charge a fee for the road permit, plus you should know before booking that getting the licence can often take up to two working days.

Is it okay to stack up waste in my skip?

It is essential never to overload your skip. You can not pass the level load line indicated on the side of the skip. If your skip is overfilled, it will become very hazardous to move. This means that if you overload your skip, you could be required to take away the excess rubbish. Regardless of how safe you feel the skip is, it can not be picked up if overloaded. This includes using old doors or any other large flat materials to build up around the rubbish. This can be unsafe and is therefore prohibited.

Can you deliver to other areas in Lanarkshire?

Absolutely. We can deliver skips to cities, towns and villages in all parts of the UK. By utilising a network of verified waste management companies, we can provide skips to both household and industrial customers throughout Lanarkshire and anywhere else within the UK.

Can I get rid of electrical items in my skip?

Electric powered objects including televisions, freezers, refrigerators, computers, monitors and hoovers are all classed as a hazardous type of waste and therefore can not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 dictates that electronic goods have to be segregated from other materials. This helps ensure that they can be reused, recycled and disposed of within the safest and most eco-friendly way.

What happens to the waste in the skip?

The waste in your skip will be taken to a local waste recycling facility. Here the rubbish will be sorted by machines and also by hand into numerous waste streams, like soil, paper, stone and wood. Sorting the waste in this manner helps to maximise the volume which can be reused and recycled. Our aim and motivation is to maximise recycling rates and minimise the quantity of waste ending up in landfill.

Do you use local skip hire companies in Uddingston?

Since we provide a national waste management service, we use a comprehensive network of approved companies. These include small family-run skip hire companies to national waste management service providers. All of our service providers are vetted to ensure they match our high customer service and environmental expectations.

Will my skip have a drop down door?

Having a skip that has a drop door helps make loading rubbish into the skip so much easier. This is especially true with heavy waste like soil and stone, which can then be walked directly into the skip with a wheelbarrow. It can also make throwing away big bulky items such as pieces of furniture easier too.

The majority of skips can be supplied with a drop down door, however this may sometimes depend on your area and availability. Let us know when placing your online order if a door is needed, and we will do our best to supply this.

How quick can you deliver a skip to Uddingston?

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

Although we cannot promise an exact delivery time, we will do our best to reach you within either a morning or afternoon slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery area, as a failed delivery effort will most likely incur a charge for the wasted trip.

What size is a builder’s skip?

As the name suggests, a builder’s skip refers to the size of skip most frequently hired for construction projects. There are usually two different sizes that can be classed as a builder’s skip – the 6 cubic yard and 8 yard skip. They are both heavy-duty containers which can be used to get rid of significant amounts of construction and demolition materials, like soil, rubble and rock.

Even though they are labelled a builders skip, they can be used for multiple other domestic and business waste disposal jobs.

How big is a roll-on roll-off container?

A RORO (roll-on roll-off) is a large container that can be used to transport significant volumes of waste. In the majority of cases, these type of containers are used for business applications. However, residential clients may also order them. It is important to look at the space they take up, as they measure between 20 – 40 cubic yards. Due to this, they should only be hired for lightweight waste including paper, timber and cardboard, and are not suitable for the removal of soil and stone.

What things can I put in my skip?

You are able to throw a variety of rubbish into your skip. This can include wood, ceramic tiles, metal or concrete from a house clearance. Tree and bush clippings, soil and stone from garden jobs are allowed as well. Cabinets from your kitchen and old bathroom fixtures may also be thrown in your skip.

There are, however, a few things that you can’t put in a skip a result of the possible environment or health risks they might cause.

You can’t throw out your fridge freezer, printer or old car tyres. Asbestos, paint or chemical waste is also prohibited in the skip. Each of these items consist of hazardous materials in one kind or another. They need to be discarded separately from general waste.

Should you require hazardous waste disposal, we may be able to schedule a separate collection for this waste. Please email for additional information. Alternatively, if you are a domestic customer, you might be able to take this sort of waste to your local council run recycling facility.
