Skip hire. The hiring process clarified

Apprehensive about how to hire a skip? There's really no cause to be! It's a simple process...

Phone us

Our helpful call handler will ask for some particulars from you in order to offer you the skip hire that matches your needs and give you an accurate price for it. He/she will ask:

  • Your location
  • The type of waste
  • The size of skip you desire (or advise you)
  • When & how long you want the skip for
  • If the skip is going on private land or public road

We will then quote you a price. To go ahead & hire we’ll take a card payment there & then. Easy.

Skip delivery & drop-off

The delivery driver will turn up at your location on the date set and drop the skip off into the space assigned for it. The skip is leased to you for up to one week (for a standard hire) during which you deposit your waste into it.

Skip Collected

Upon completion of loading your waste into the skip (or if it has become full) then please telephone to advise us. This will allow us to arrange for the uplift of your full skip as soon as possible (according to the available slots in our drivers’ schedules). Should you have additional waste and desire to hire another skip then please inform us during your off-hire call so it allows us to arrange your new skip hire and deliver it when we come to uplift your previous one.

Providing skip hire for all kinds of customers

Domestic skip hire

Our valued clients frequently advise us that, over time, their properties seem to simply fill up with clutter and detritus almost of their own accord, rendering lofts, rooms, cupboards, garages and sheds unusable for their original purpose and creating a negative visual impression. Skip Hire Edinburgh has assisted many such customers with these problems by providing skips to finally have that oft-promised clear out and liberate space unnecessarily occupied by clutter. Other residential uses for skip hire include – DIY projects, waste from building repairs and garden renovations

Builders Skip Hire

To general building, construction, gardening and landscaping companies we supply traditional builder’s skips which are designed for the heavier waste that such jobs generate including brick, roofing tiles, timber, windows, soil and green waste. We provide 4 yard mini skips for small jobs but most commonly the 8 yard builder’s skip which is the traditional option on sites. Other services we can provide to such clients include: wait and load skip hire and repeat on-site skip hire.

Commercial/Public Skip Hire

Skip Hire Edinburgh has the experience of providing skip hire and waste collection services for many commercial clients ranging from retail units, nightclubs, restaurants, offices, wholesale warehouses and industrial engineering/manufacturing companies. We have handled a variety of one-off and ongoing waste management needs from premises refits, stock renewal, office clearances through to regular on-site skip hire and waste disposal. Additionally we have provided skip hire to a range of public sector clients including care homes, schools and universities.

We Are Here to Help

Skip Hire Edinburgh is cognizant of the fact that each individual client and waste project has individual requirements that require close attention. That said however, from our experiences of handling a wide variety of waste from an equally wide variety of customers over the years we do find some commonality in the initial questions that are put to us. In order to save our valued clients time we have assembled such questions (and our answers to them) and organized them into the  frequently-asked questions (FAQ) page of this website. This should help answer some questions that you may have if you’ve never hired a skip with us previously. In the event that you have further questions/specialist requirements or you simply prefer to speak to a real, live person then our experienced telephone operators are standing by to take your call and advise you on any aspect of our waste management services.

Considerable waste management experience

At Skip Hire Edinburgh we are fully cognizant of the fact that our customers require a skip hire service that  they can rely on to meet their needs time after time and for each and every job – offering a quality waste management service is not simply about offering cheap skip hire prices but about providing a dependable waste collection service that you know will always deliver when you need it. Our objective is to turn all of our new customers into regular clients by proving to you that we offer a high standard of service and reliability at a reasonable cost. The waste management professionals that staff our organisation have the knowledge and experience to fully understand your waste disposal needs and match these to the most appropriate and cost-effective skip hire or waste collection solution that we offer.

The skip hire process consists of several stages and our goal is to maximise customer satisfaction by managing every one of these stages with care from start to finish. Skip Hire Edinburgh starts by dealing with your initial telephone enquiry in a courteous, professional and helpful manner, correctly answering any questions you pose, offering the most appropriate skip hire solution for your kind (& volume of) waste and quoting a competitive price. We will handle your debit or credit card payment securely. Our driver will deliver the skip on the set date as agreed with you and drop the skip into the assigned location as carefully as he/she can. Our standard hire period is a fair one (of up to seven days) so you get full use of the skip and we always aim to uplift full/off-hired skips as quickly as possible after your notification (subject to driver availability). Good, old-fashioned, high quality customer care is our objective.

Waste collection in Edinburgh and environs

Five facts about Edinburgh

  • Edinburgh’s imposing castle is actually built on the site of a volcano but have no fears about an eruption and lava running down Princes Street, it has been extinct for millions of years.
  • Edinburgh’s arts festival held every summer is the biggest such event in the world during which the city’s population doubles in size.
  • Edinburgh was the centre of the Scottish Enlightenment during the 18th. century when – rather than becoming an industrial centre like Glasgow – it focussed on developing as a centre for knowledge in medicine, economics, philosophy and the sciences.
  • The city used to be known as “Auld Reekie” due to its polluted air caused by the burning of coal (and poor sanitation in the original “Old Town”) but is now one of the UK’s greenest cities thanks to its many parks, a new tram system and plans for the city centre to become car-free.
  • Both Edinburgh’s original “Old Town” and its 18th/19th. century “New Town” are UNESCO World Heritage sites and the city has the world’s highest percentage of listed buildings (an astonishing 75%).
