Man & Van VS Skip Hire

Deciding the right service for you is not always that simple, whether you need your waste urgently clearing or need somewhere to store it throughout a longer project, SkipHire UK have a service for every situation. Our handy Man and Van Vs Skip Hire guide will give you all the information you need to make the right choice:

Man & Van Waste Clearance

Our Man & Van Waste Clearance is a low-cost and simple alternative to skip hire. If your waste is already stockpiled and in desperate need of clearance, or you don’t have room for a skip and a costly permit may be required this is the service for you. The Man & Van Waste Clearance caters to the more urgent requirements you may have, where our friendly team will arrive and clear your waste to save you the hassle.

The Man & Van Waste Clearance also tackles access issues we may have when delivering a skip to your desired location.  So if you find yourself in need of a permit or you don’t have enough access for us to deliver a skip, this service becomes the perfect option for you.

SkipHire UK have a range of collections on offer. Our small collection – covers around 2 cubic yards of waste with a maximum weight limit of 200kg.  But if this isn’t enough our extra-large collection provides a whopping 14 cubic yards of waste and a maximum weight limit of 1,000kg.  So whatever rubbish you have to dispose of we are confident we have the right collection for you.

Skip Hire

Our skip hire service is more suited to longer-term projects. With a fixed 2 week hire period available on all skips (options for longer if required) you have plenty of time to clear your waste at your own leisure at a time to suit you. If you have plenty of access available for us to deliver a skip on private property, this could be the best option for you giving you more time and flexibility.

Our cheap and reliable skip hire services are normally more suitable if your waste is being produced over a longer period, and you need somewhere to store it safely and securely throughout your project. A skip provides a great place to store your waste, until it’s ready for safe collection and disposal.

Our full range of skips come in all shapes and sizes and are available across the UK.  Our simple and compact 4-yard midi skip can hold around two and a half car boots full of waste making it perfect for small projects and taking us less space on your drive.   On the other hand our huge 12-yard skip which holds roughly the same amount as a standard 8m x 6m garden shed can clearly cater for much more waste but due to its large size needs much more space on your driveway.

Our most popular product is the traditional 8-yard builders skip which is big enough to hold a fair few tonnes of your waste but small enough to fit on most standard driveways making it the ideal solution and first choice for many.

What ever your requirement we are confident we have a range and skip sizes and prices to suit all budgets.
