8 yard skips

The 8-yard builders skip.

The ‘builders skip’ is the largest size available for the loading and disposal of heavy waste like soils and rubble. Our most popular skip suitable for all projects, its size makes it ideal for disposing of bulky items of waste.

All skips are to be placed on private land. If private land is not available and your skip is to be placed on the public highway a skip hire permit will be required.  Additional charges enforced by the relevant local authority will be applied in such instances, in addition to the cost of hire. Charges for skip hire permits together with their enforcement vary regionally.

All permits are chargeable to the customer. Should the permit be declined by the local authority, this charge is non-refundable.

If you require a skip hire permit, please contact us to check eligibility.

Delivery on the day of hire will be between the hours of 7am and 5.30pm.  With specific time periods available to be requested at the time of booking.

Please ensure the location of where the skip is to be placed is accessible for a skip lorry and clear from obstruction for both delivery and collection.

All our skips can be placed on private property, providing there is room to do so. If space is limited, your skip might need to be placed on a public road. In situations like this, a skip permit will need to be obtained. A skip permit will allow you to place your skip on a public road, and you can apply for one by contacting your local council.
