About our skips
Our main aim is to provide a reliable service and we endeavour to provide the skip at a time to suit you. We are happy to provide timed deliveries within an hour timeframe. For local deliveries in most circumstances we can offer a same day service depending on availability.
We normally provide a skip for one week but this can be extended to 4 weeks upon request subject to availability. We do ask that once you have finished with the skip that you telephone us to arrange for collection and we usually require 24 hours notice. Where a skip is placed on the public highway we provide the necessary cones & lights.
In order to comply with recent environmental legislation you must not place asbestos based products, foodstuffs, fridges/freezers, tyres, batteries or fluorescent tubes in the skip.
The law requires that all skips placed on the public highway must have a permit which is issued by the local authority. We arrange permits for our customers as part of our service. Permit charges vary depending on the local authority. Please note that most local authorities require at least 24 hours notice in order to issue a permit. Skip permits are valid for one month. If in the rare circumstance that the local authority are not able to grant a permit then we can arrange for our driver to wait whilst the skip is being loaded.
