How much do our skips cost to hire?

Skip hire costs are primarily influenced by two key factors:

  • Skip Size: The size of the skip you require will impact the cost. Larger skips generally come with higher prices. However, rest assured that we are committed to providing competitive rates for all your skip hire needs.
  • Location: It’s essential to determine whether your skip will be placed on private property or a public pavement, as this affects the requirement for a permit from your local council. If your skip won’t be on private land, a permit is usually necessary

Additional factors that impact skip hire pricing

  • Road Permits: When placing a skip on a public road, you might need a road permit, which can impact the cost. To save on this expense, you can opt for a wait and load service.
  • Bay Suspensions: Skip hire costs can significantly increase in certain areas, like those requiring bay suspensions.
  • Plasterboard: Disposing of plasterboard waste may incur additional charges.
  • Hazardous Waste: Handling hazardous waste necessitates caution, and it’s wise to seek professional advice before booking a skip for such materials.
  • Mattresses: There may be extra charges for mattress disposal.
  • Overloading Skips: Exceeding the skip’s level load line can result in additional fees and even require a wasted journey if the skip isn’t safe to transport due to overloading.
  • Wasted Journeys: Blockages or overloading of the skip can lead to additional fees for wasted journeys.
  • Length of Hire: Standard skip hire periods usually range from 7 to 14 days. If you need the skip for an extended period, you may incur additional fees per extra day or week.

Considering these factors is crucial when calculating your total skip hire costs to ensure an economical and transparent waste disposal solution.

What kind of waste do you accept in your skips?

Our skips can handle a variety of non-hazardous waste including garden waste, building rubble, household rubbish, and more. If you’re not sure whether something is suitable for a skip, just give us a call and we’ll let you know!

What can’t I put in a skip?

Hazardous waste is generally not suitable for skips. This includes gas cylinders, glue, chemicals, paint, batteries, asbestos, and medical waste. No upholstered goods and plasterboard can be added, these need to be segregated. You can dispose of fridges and mattresses but there is an additional charge based on the extra processing costs.

Do I need a permit for my skip?

If your skip is going on the road or anywhere outside your property, it’s likely you’ll need a permit from the local authority. These range between £25-40 for a permit. Don’t worry about doing this, though, as we’ll sort all this out for you and include it as part of your quote. Want to know more about skip permits?
