Skip Hire Public

 

Skip HireIf you do not possess a drive or cannot get it on your existing one you might need to consider the road. A permit is required for a skip on a public highway and takes three working days to obtain.Do remember that you need to create space on the road. Verges are usually not permitted.If you know you will need another skip exchange or would like to make certain of a collection date, please give us at least 24 hours notice or tell us when ordering. We pride ourselves on an excellent service when we have all the facts!

 

  • Private hire:
  • As a general guide, aggregates convert to a tonne a cubic yd
  • If the skip is likely to be heavy with soil or hardcore the maximum size is 8 Cubic Yds.
  • We do offer much larger containers to commerce
  • We are concerned that you get that job done. Under estimating your skip size can be more expensive and frustrating. Always allow enough space.
  • Waste type is important for a variety of reasons when ordering. Please remember that legislation does not allow us to carry asbestos, oils, paint, or car batteries unless we know ahead.
  • Demand for skips is always higher at weekends and holidays so make plans well ahead.
