Some info on Skip Hire

You’ve got your power tools, you’ve got your sledgehammer and you’ve got your work clothes on. In a few minutes you’re going to be surrounded by the rubble of that wall you’ve destroyed, or the splinters of the units you’ve ripped out. It may be a satisfying process, but what will quickly take the shine off it is being surrounded by that waste for days on end! So next you need to hire your skip, and here are a few things to consider so that you can make sure you get the right skip hire company and cheap skip hire prices.

Commercial or domestic?

Most skip hire companies will deal with the commercial and domestic market, but they may often specialise in one or the other. Commercial suppliers may not be used to giving advice and covering those details that you may not have already considered. Domestic suppliers may not have the capacity to deal with industrial-size jobs. Look for a company that understands your requirements and can deliver the solutions that are right for you.


Some skip hire companies will expect you to pay in cash, and to give this to the driver. This means you have to wait around for the truck to arrive and many people would feel uncomfortable about working in this way. This sort of company may also be reluctant to give you a quote over the phone. It’s probably a good idea to be wary of this approach, so check in advance.

The good, the bad and the ugly

Well, good and bad mainly – there are a few cowboys in the skip hire trade, so you can always ask to see a company’s waste certificate or get them to give you their certificate number, then you can check them out further.

Skip hire company costs

Bear in mind that skips can cost £50,000 or more to buy, so the prices you get are probably pretty reasonable. Skip hire companies also need to process your waste, employ a number of skilled drivers and keep themselves insured, so you really are getting value for money.

Vehicle tracking

Most reputable companies will now use vehicle tracking, so that when they tell you how long you need to wait for delivery or pick-up, you can trust them to be reliable. This way you can avoid that age-old problem of waiting around all day for a delivery!
