1. What size skip do I need?

This will of course vary on how much and what it is you are looking to dispose. One tip is to be realistic about skip size as it may work out cheaper for you to order one larger skip as opposed to two small ones.

2. Does my driveway need to be a particular size?

To make sure we can drop off your skip on your driveway without significant problems, a driveway width of 2.75m should be enough to accommodate one of our vehicles.

3. My driveway isn’t large enough, can my skip go on the road?

Yes your skip can go on the road however a permit will need to be sourced. The price and notice required to be given to the council varies across the country, yet we can take care of this for you and inform you of the process in your area.

4. I don’t want to pay for a permit, are there any other options?

If you don’t want to pay for a permit, we do offer a ‘wait and load’ service where a driver will wait for you whilst you load up the skip. Feel free to contact us for more information on this.

5. How long can I hire the skip for?

Our prices include the hire of a skip for up to 10 days. Additional features included in your overall price include the delivery, collection and then the disposal of the waste afterwards.

6. How soon can I get my skip?

In some instances we can get the skip you require to you on the very same day, however if not, then by calling before 2pm we will have it with you the next day.

7. How can I pay for my skip?

We can take a card payment when you order the skip so once this has been processed, you won’t need to stay in and wait for the delivery of the skip as we will simply drop it off at your address.
