Skip sizes explained:

  • 4 Yard Skip
  • 8 Yard Skip
  • 14 Yard Skip
  • 20 Yard Skip

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.

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.
