Skip Hire FAQs

What size of skip do I need?
We can supply skips of 3 and 8 cubic capacity carrying from 2.5 to 7.5 tonnes. Let us know what type of job you are undertaking and we will advise you on size and type eg. If your project involves barrowing soil/ rubble a skip with a drop - down door would make things easier.

If you need security a lidded skip could be provided.

Where can I place the skip?

Points to consider:
Access will be required for a Large Goods Vehicle. Tarmac, concrete and block - paving may not be suitable to carry the weight of the vehicle/loaded skip.

We can help you decide the best place to put it.
A skip placed on the highway or land maintained by the County Council Highways Department (including road-side verges) will require a permit for which there is often a charge. We will apply for this permit for you.

How long can I keep the skip?
The normal hire period is 7 days but it is helpful if you let us know as soon as you have filled the skip.
