How quickly can I get a skip?
Depending on your location, we can usually deliver your skip at 24 hours notice. If the skip is to be placed on a public highway a council permit is required. Local council permits usually take 24 hours to obtain, but could take longer depending on the council
How do I book a skip?
You can either complete your booking online, or call us on Rotherham, 01709 870900. For phone bookings, you can pay for your skip at the time of ordering via credit/debit card, or we can arrange to take cash payment on delivery.
Do I need a permit? Can you do this for me?
You will need a permit from the local council if your skip is to be placed on public land, this includes footpaths, grass verges and the public highway. In most cases we can arrange the permit for you, a process that normally takes 24 hours, but we can advice you specifically if you have any questions around permits. PLEASE NOTE: We are unable to place skips on any kind of road markings e.g. double/single yellow lines, hatchings, white H markings
How long can I keep my skip?
Normally our standard skip hire is for a maximum period of 1 week, but we can arrange for longer periods if required. Please indicate this in the “Special Instructions” section of the booking form or simply let us know when you complete your booking over the phone
