You give us a call and we will discuss your requirements as follows:
We will then quote you a price which includes:
This price excludes:
If you wish to proceed we can take a card payment immediately over the phone and book you in on the agreed date.
On the agreed day, our skip lorry driver will deliver and drop off the skip at your requested address & place it in the desired spot. You then have up to 7 days to fill it with your waste.
As soon as you have filled or are finished with your skip, just give us a call to arrange a mutually-convenient collection day when we will come & remove the filled skip. Job done.
If you need to hire another skip just let us know when you call to off-hire the existing one and we can arrange an exchange (at additional cost).
A standard general waste skip hire is for a maximum of 7 days. If you have filled or have finished with the skip earlier then call us and we will arrange collection. If you require a longer term hire or multiple skip hires then please call us to discuss your specific requirements.
You do not require a permit to place a skip in your private driveway, yard or garden.
If you are placing a skip on a public road then you do need a permit from your local authority. Please contact your local council for details of the costs involved and time required to obtain one as this can vary depending on your area.
If you can’t wait or don’t want to pay for a permit we offer other services to avoid this including:
Both of the above services count as “loading” so no skip permit is required for them.
The following items cannot be put in a general mixed waste skip:
* require decommissioning due to the hazardous gases inside them
** attract surcharges as specialist waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE). If you have these items for disposal then please advise during your skip hire call and we may be able to offer a suitable service.
If you don’t have a driveway and cannot obtain a road permit but still want a skip then smaller (up to 8 yard) “chain” skips can be placed in a garden but good access is required for the skip lorry to be able to lift a skip into place so it really depends on your garden and the obstacles between it and the street e.g. the height of hedges, fences or boundary walls.
Larger roll-on roll-off container type skips are dropped rather than lifted into place so these cannot be placed onto a garden. Please also bear in mind that a skip is heavy so this will damage the grass underneath.
If you intend to place a skip in your garden then please discuss this in detail with our team when you call. If this is not feasible then please consider our other alternative waste removal services:
