Please note: You cannot put a skip on the pavement. You need a licence to put it on a public road. Our hire suppliers are responsible for obtaining the permits in most areas, but there are some locations you'll need to do it yourself. The delivering company might also need to use safety lights and markings. You can contact your local council to find the exact rules for permits, lights, and markings in your area.
Yes, hiring a skip is worth it, especially if you have a lot of waste to dispose. It will save you a lot of trips to the tip and back.
You can hire a skip for as little as £5 a week! You can book a skip through our website online.
You can keep a skip for as long as you require. But, It is worth checking how long the permit will last, as it may run out after 14 days.
Yes you can fill a skip with soil. It is best to disclose this upon booking either as soil can weigh a lot in large quantities and the trucks may struggle to lift the skips.
Yes, paving slabs can absolutely go in a skip, along with the rest of your garden waste such as grass, weeds, and soil.
From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.
If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.
YOU MUST NOT USE RED DIESEL IN HIRED MACHINES OR EQUIPMENT.
If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
