Skip Hire

Are you trying to decide what size skip to hire? If in doubt, we recommend that you choose a larger size skip than you think you might need.

It is illegal to overload your skip and you will be charged for the removal of any excess waste if a larger skip is required. So if you are in any doubt as to what size skip you need to hire, it's best to go for the bigger size - and save yourself loads of cost and hassle!
