Skip sizes explained:

4 yard skip Capacity: 40 standard black bin bags (approx.) Size (metric): 1.8m long x 1.3m wide x 1m high (approx.) Size (imperial): 5ft 11in long x 4ft 3in wide x 3ft 3in high (approx.)
The smallest skip in our range, the 4 yard (generally known as a mini skip or midi skip) is a compact size suited to smaller jobs only. Common uses include small building works (e.g. repairs, bathroom renovations), clearing out cupboards or wardrobes & gardening (e.g. waste from hedge trimming or tree pruning).

 

Skip Hire East Lothian's quoted price includes:

Delivery to site, standard hire of up to 7 days, collection & licensed waste recycling/disposal

8 yard skip Capacity: 65-80 standard black bin bags (approx.) Size (metric): 3.1m long x 1.9m wide x 1.6m high (approx.) Size (imperial): 10ft 2in long x 6ft 3in wide x 5ft 3in high (approx.) Generally known as a “standard builders skip”, the 8-yard skip is the most widely-hired size. In spite of the name, it's not just for builders as its footprint & capacity make it equally popular with private hirers for household jobs such as flat & (smaller) house clearances, shed or garage clear-outs. Landscapers & builders use this size for works where earth, soil or other building materials require to be removed.

 

Skip Hire East Lothian's quoted price includes:

Delivery to site, standard hire of up to 7 days, collection & licensed waste recycling/disposal

8 yard skip

14 yard skip Capacity: 115-135 standard black bin bags (approx.) Size (metric): 4m long x 1.9m wide x 2m high (approx.) Size (imperial): 13ft 2in long x 6ft 3in wide x 6ft 7in high (approx.)

When an 8 yard is just not enough, our 14 yard skip offers a useful increase in waste capacity for only a slight increase in footprint. These factors make it ideally suited to uses such as larger domestic house clearances and for medium-sized commercial office clearances, small warehouse clear-outs and shop refits which typically involve the disposal of awkwardly-shaped, oversized waste including lengths of timber, metal, plastic & packaging.

14 yard skip

20 yard skip
Capacity: 200-220 standard black bin bags (approx.)
Size (metric): 7m long x 2.5m wide x 1.9m high (approx.)
Size (imperial): 23ft long x 8ft 3in wide x 6ft 3in high (approx.)

 

Public sector institutions & commercial businesses also regularly require larger container skips (in 20 & 40 yard sizes). These are of a different design to the smaller chain skips and as such permit easier loading & are not lifted but slid (from the back of the lorry) into position on site. A 20 yard container skip's common uses include: larger commercial site work such as refurbishment or clearance of commercial/industrial premises (such as offices, warehouses, colleges & larger retail units) & sites where continuous amounts of waste are being produced & regular removal is required (such as care homes).

Hiring a skip explained

How to hire a skip from us:

Phone us up
Our quotations are given over the phone as this is the best way to assess a customer’s needs, offer the most suitable service & price accordingly. When you call, our staff member will gather some basic data e.g. the kind of waste you have, delivery date, site location, if the skip is to be put on private land or public roadway & the size required. We’re used to helping new clients so don’t worry if you’re not 100% sure. If our quote is acceptable & you wish to continue we’ll take a payment via debit/credit card & book your hire without delay.
The skip arrives
On the date you have reserved, a member of Skip Hire East Lothian(SHEL)’s driver squad will pick up an empty skip from the depot & bring it to the site address you have provided (please ensure that access is free). When the driver arrives, he/she will unload the skip (either by lifting or sliding it from the rear of the truck) into the space you have kept back for it. The skip is then left on site for a maximum of 7 days for you to load it with your waste.
Skip Collected
We find that clients do not want a skip sitting on their property any longer than is absolutely necessary so as soon as you no longer require your skip please call to tell us (rather than wait). This notification lets us timetable a collection into our drivers’ route planner. SHEL makes an effort to collect full skips as quickly as is practicably possible. Your waste is then taken to a licensed waste site where it is recycled/disposed of in the appropriate manner.

Hiring skips to households, trade & public sector

Domestic skip hire

We hire skips to homeowners & tenants across East Lothian when they need a fast, easy & a straightforward way to tidy up their garden, dump unwanted items or even empty entire properties without the effort & the hassle of repeated trips to packed council recycling centres. Private hires include:

Construction skip hire

SHEL also services the waste collection requirements of the construction sector. We supply builders skips for the removal of all building materials (excluding asbestos) from home improvements through to “heavier” waste such as soil, earth & demolition rubble.

Commercial skip hire

SHEL provides reliable skip hire services across a range of business & non-profit/public sectors to companies & establishments of all sizes. Whether you operate in hospitality, education, health, retail, wholesale or manufacturing we can provide a waste collection service to suit. Commercial hires include:

Skip Hire Help & Questions

At Whenever we do anything for the first time it can be an anxious & even daunting prospect, like that first driving lesson, bicycle ride without stabilisers or flight on an aeroplane. We know that hiring a skip for the first time is like that for most new customers. But just like your driving instructor/parent/steward/ess let Skip Hire East Lothian be the friendly helping hand that guides you through your first skip hire experience & takes away all of your worries. The “skip sizes explained” & “hiring a skip explained” sections above should help demystify some aspects of hiring a skip to first-time hirers but we recognise that you will probably still have questions. To address this, we have assembled the habitual queries that are regularly asked by potential new clients & built them into the FAQ page of this website. Navigate to the FAQ page to check the answers to many common questions regarding skip hire. If you need to ask any more questions or remain unsure about any aspects then please don’t hesitate to phone us. We are always just a phone call away so never be afraid to ask us anything.

Waste management for East Lothian

When you call Skip Hire East Lothian you will (hopefully!) find that our core aim is to do skip hire the right way – from how we treat our customers, delivering the service as quoted to you right through to the recycling & disposing of your waste at a licensed waste station in an environmentally-responsible way. This is how all reputable waste businesses should operate & the costs involved in operating responsibly are not low. Government-imposed waste disposal charges increase regularly to encourage greater recycling & discourage waste disposal. Such charges are unavoidable & make up a large proportion of the cost of your skip hire. At SHEL we try hard to maintain our prices at competitive market levels when compared with other responsible firms. Clients will regularly waste hours phoning a multitude of firms in search of that unicorn – the super cheap skip. Certain small operators may oblige by quoting hire rates unusually lower than all others but customers should think twice before agreeing to use such firms. Such prices may only be achieved by cutting corners either on service or waste disposal. A “super cheap” skip that fails to arrive or sits on your driveway for months uncollected is no bargain. When you hire a skip you need a company you can rely on. Rely on Skip Hire East Lothian.
