Do any of the skips have doors for easy access ?
Only the two smallest size, mini and 3 yard, do not have doors, all the others do.
Usually within 24 hours, often same day if you phone early.
Length of hire ?
Anywhere from one day to three weeks, longer hire only by special arrangement.
Where can the skip be situated ?
Our lorries require 9' width to access and skips can be placed on most firm, level ground, private driveway etc is best option if as placing skips on roads attracts a licence fee imposed by the highways authority. Please remember the lorry has to be able to remove the skip, once full, safely and when it will be much heavier.

Is there a charge for the on road licence ?

Who provided lights and cones etc ?
We will provide the necessary lights and cones with the skip but it is the hirers responsibility to ensure they remain in place and working.
