A 2-yard skip is perfect for small domestic projects such as garden work or bathroom fittings. It is the smallest skip we offer and measures 3ft x 4ft x 3ft (0.9m x 1.2m x 0.9m).

A 14-yard skip is perfect for large industrial projects such as demolition or large commercial works. It measures 13ft x 6ft x 6ft (4m x 1.8m x 1.8m). If you require a skip for large, bulky waste, then the 14-yard skip is the right fit for you.

We provide 3 types of skip sizes, and each type of skip has different qualities. We also offer the additional option of hiring skip bags and wheelie bins.
Skip bags are smaller than skips on offer; they are more flexible and can be manoeuvred to fit into smaller spaces. They are a great option if you have less waste to dispose of, or if your project is in an area where there are restrictions on the space. We offer skip bags that range in size, and each comes with a weight limit. If you are unsure which size skip bag will fit your needs, feel free to speak to our team, and we will provide you with guidance.
Wheelie bins are an option is you need to dispose of waste generated from domestic projects. They range in size and come with a regular collection schedule. We offer different sizes of wheelie bins, and you can choose the one that fits your specific needs.
If you have a large construction or industrial project, you may require a waste transfer station to manage the accumulation of waste. We offer a range of waste transfer options for large projects. Our team of experts will help you identify the best option that fits your project's specific waste management requirements.
A yard skip is perfect if you have a garden clearance, landscaping or renovation project. The yard skip option comes with a drop-down door, which makes loading your waste easy. The 8-yard and 12-yard skips are the ones we offer with drop-down doors. It makes loading and unloading your waste much more accessible, as you can load it directly through the door from a wheelbarrow or other tools.
Various factors will determine which size skip is ideal for your project. Below are some things you should consider when renting a skip:
You should consider the type of waste that you are producing. If you are clearing garden waste or soil, it will be different from a general renovation waste. We will provide you with a guide on which waste can be placed in each skip size.
The location of your project will determine which size skip is right for you. If the location is small with limited space, then a smaller skip or a skip bag will be the perfect option.
The duration of your project is also an essential factor to consider when choosing a skip size. If the project will take a few days, then you may require a smaller skip. For longer projects, you may have to consider hiring a larger skip.
The number of materials you are going to dispose of is an essential factor to consider. If you have a smaller amount of waste, then a smaller skip size will be enough. If you have a considerable amount of waste, then a larger-sized skip is ideal.
