Wigtown Skip Hire FAQs

How do I hire a skip in Wigtown?

We have created our booking system with speed and simplicity in mind. The first step is to type in your delivery postcode to check out the range of skip sizes we are able to provide in Wigtown. Pick the best size to meet your needs and provide the details of where and when you want the skip to be delivered. Then you can make payment with the secure payment system, and we will send an email to confirm your order as soon as your order is complete!

When will the skip be delivered to me?

We will make sure your skip will be provided on the day requested, which in most cases will be Monday to Saturday. If you place an order prior to 3pm Monday to Friday, we can normally deliver your skip the following day.

Although we cannot promise a precise delivery time, we will do our best to come within either an AM or PM slot of your choosing.

It is important to ensure the skip lorry can access the delivery location, as a unsuccessful delivery attempt will in most cases incur a fee for the wasted journey.

Should I stay in when the skip is delivered?

If you are having a skip delivered to your house, it is usually best to be in on the day it is delivered. You can then ensure the skip lorry has total access and that the skip will be situated exactly where you want it. This also applies if you have a skip delivered to company property, especially when gates restrict access.

However, if this is not achievable, you do not have to worry. Simply let us know when you are placing your order, and we will handle everything.

How long can I keep a skip for?

You can in most cases keep a skip for as long as 2 weeks from the delivery date. You are able to provide a chosen pick up date when you place your order. Alternatively, you can let us know when you have finished, and we will arrange your collection. Usually, this will be the next working day, although it can sometimes take a little longer over hectic periods.

Will a Wigtown skip hire company deliver my skip?

A local skip firm will likely deliver your skip in Wigtown. We work with a network of both local and nationwide providers to enable us to offer our service to domestic and business customers across the whole of the UK. These companies are comprehensively vetted to guarantee they fulfill the high principles we demand in terms of service, price and environmental performance.

Which size skips will have a door?

In general, the majority of skips can be provided with a drop-down door, depending on skip size, availability and area. If you require a drop-down door, please tell us when ordering your skip.

Getting a skip that has a drop door is primarily beneficial if hiring a large builder’s skip, because it allows you to wheelbarrow your rubbish directly into the skip. This isn’t so important for mini skips, as they are lower enough at the ends for you to be able to tip waste over the edge.

What is a roll-on roll-off skip?

A roll-on roll-off container, often known as a RORO, is a substantial container that is used to dispose of large amounts of waste. These skips are mainly for industrial use but can be hired by residential clients as well. Having said that, you will need a lot of room because these skips vary from 20 to 40 cubic yards, which is much larger in comparison to the average skip you will likely see on the side of the road.

As a result of the size, these skips can only be provided for lightweight materials such as plastics, wood and paper, so they are not appropriate for disposing of soil and rubble.

Is it ok to fill my skip higher than the top?

You should not load your skip past the level load mark. When you fill it over the tip of this level, it means that the skip will not be safe to move, and you may be asked to take off the extra rubbish prior to it being collected.

How much waste will a builder’s skip hold?

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

These large skips are ideal for a multitude of household and commercial tasks. These are the biggest skips that you can use for weighty builders waste like garden soil, stone and bricks.

Where do you take the waste from my skip?

The rubbish in the skip will be taken to the local waste transfer facility. Here the waste will be separated by machinery and also by hand into different waste streams, such as metal, cardboard, hardcore and timber. Processing the waste in this way helps to increase the amount that can be reused and recycled. Our aim and dedication is always to maximise the amount of waste that is recycled and minimise the amount of waste ending up in landfill.

What types of waste am I allowed to put in a skip?

It is possible to fill up your skip with a wide array of different waste types that are commonly produced from house clearances, building projects, garden landscaping and lots of other jobs. This can include wood, soil, stone, hedge trimmings, furniture, clothing, kitchen cabinets or outdated bathroom fittings.

What you put in the skip depends on which size you have hired, as there is a maximum weight restriction. For instance, if you will be using the skip for heavy building waste such as bricks or garden soil, the biggest size you would be able to use is an 8 cubic yard builders skip.

Some materials should not be discarded in the skip. This includes refrigerators, computer monitors, car tyres, chemicals, paint, asbestos and plasterboard. These materials will be considered hazardous waste and need to be disposed of separately.

What are the different skip sizes available?

Skips are available in a number of sizes to suit different waste disposal requirements. They are measured by volume, usually in cubic yards. The smallest of which is the 2 yard skip, sometimes called the mini skip. It will hold roughly 25 bin bags of rubbish, which is perfect for small domestic tasks.

The next size up is the 4 cubic yard skip, which will hold approximately 35 black bags of rubbish. This skip is roughly the dimensions of a smallish car and is sometimes described as a midi skip. The 4 yarder is a great choice for garden shed clearances and domestic refurbishment jobs.

Should you have a more substantial waste disposal task to sort out, a builder’s skip might be the smartest choice. These are available in both 6 and 8 cubic yard sizes. As the name indicates, these are the most typical sizes hired by builders for construction waste, like soil and rubble. But they can equally well be used for domestic waste such as old furniture or bathroom suites.

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

Guide to skip sizes

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

This will depend on where the skip will be located. You will only need a permit when it is positioned on public property, such as a street, pavement or grass verge. You will not need a permit when your skip will be on private property, such as a drive or inside your business premises.

If you need to get a permit, we will organise this for you as part of the service. Simply tell us as part of the order process, and then we will make the required arrangements with the local authority. They do charge a fee for this, so if you can position your skip on your own property, it will save you some pounds.

What size is the mini skip?

The mini skip is the smallest size offered and can describe either the 2 or 3 yard skip. These compact bins are great for small DIY tasks and household clearances. Their small footprint means they are great for driveways.

They may be used to dispose of all types of waste materials, from household furniture and old baby toys to paving slabs and bricks. With a capacity of about 25-30 bin bags of rubbish, the mini skip will save you having to make numerous journeys to the local recycling centre.

Can I get rid of electrical products in my skip?

Electric powered products such as television sets, freezers, fridges, laptops or computers, monitors and vacuum cleaners are all classed as a hazardous waste stream and so should not be disposed of in your skip. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013 requires that electronic goods must be separated from other materials. This ensures they can be recycled and disposed of in the safest and most eco friendly manner.
