The Process Involved When Hiring A Skip

Hiring a skip is an easy process with Bailey’s Skip Hire. Once you have decided on a size and contacted our team, we will email you the quote and arrange payment to be taken over the phone. The skip will then be transported to your location at a time that suits you, and left for the arranged duration until we return to collect the container. This causes minimal disruptions and lets you get started on your project quickly.

Common Queries Asked When Hiring A Skip

Do I Need A Skip Permit?

If you are placing the skip on the public highway or land, then a permit from your local council is required. This is to manage the number of skips placed on the road and ensure safety for the public. Bear in mind, if you put the skip completely on private property then a permit is not needed.

Skip hire companies such as ourselves are able to obtain your skip permit for you, so theres no need to stress about grabbing the license yourself. Some councils have rules surrounding placing a skip on public land including signage, cones and reflective markings for visibility.

What Can I Put In My Skip?

You can load skips with all sorts of waste, making them incredibly handy to assist with any type of project: outdoors or indoors! Below are a few of the materials that we often see filling the skips:

  • Green waste: soil, grass, bushes, garden furniture
  • Plastics
  • Cardboard and paper
  • Furniture and fittings
  • Packaging
  • Industrial waste
  • Construction waste: rubble, gravel, stones, foundation materials.

Which Skip Size Should I Hire?

You can take a look at our skip sizes to decide which container would best suit your project. Our skip hire firm has a huge range of skips available, from mini skips for DIY projects to huge 40 cubic yard containers for industrial and commercial work. Having a wide variety allows our customers to choose the most cost-effective size for their project and gives them peace of mind that they will not run out of space.
