find the right skip for your requirements in just 3 simple steps…
from the siting of your skip, to the type of waste you need to dispose of… follow the steps below to find the right skip for you!
can the skip be kept on your own privately owned property?
Good news as this makes things a bit simpler!
As long as you have privately owned property for the skip to be sited on, such as a driveway (minimum 10ft access required), accessible front garden (ie. no fence or walls) or an allocated private parking space within a private carpark then we can deliver your skip with no further actions required or additional costs incurred.
It is worth noting that any delivery you request to be carried out on your own private property is done so, excluding driver negligence, at your own risk.
Fear not, whilst not quite as straightforward a process, we should still be able to arrange your skip hire!
Depending on the road type (and any local traffic restrictions) an application for a highways permit will need to be made to the local council in order to site your skip on the road (or verge) in front of your property.Â In the vast majority of cases we are able to do this on your behalf.Â Unfortunately there is usually an additional charge to apply for this and the amount charged together with the number of working days needed for the application does vary from council to council.
Please also be aware that as the hirer of the skip it is your responsibility to ensure that it is lit and coned for the duration of the hire period.
is the waste you need to dispose of allowed to be placed in a skip?
