Generally it will arrive the next day or sometimes same day, but this depends on your location and the time of order. Although in some circumstances a permit may be required. We would need prior warning in this situation as this process can take up to 3 – 5 working days.
When skips are ordered we will enquire about the conditions of the location, so please advise us of any access issues. We will place your skip in a suitable location for loading and collection. This could be on your driveway, front garden, side access or on the road. You will need a permit to allow you to have the skip on the road. The council needs 3 – 5 working days’ notice when applying for permits.
Permits are required for skips that are placed on public land or the highway, by most local councils. We will advise you on whether you need a permit for your skip and in most cases we can arrange this for you, although some local councils will require you to apply for the permit. The maximum duration of a permit is 14 days
Our standard skip hire lasts for 7 days. Although, we can alter this to fit your requirements. If you require a permit to allow your skip to be placed on public land, this can be arranged for a maximum of 14 days. Please let us know if you need the skip for an extended time. We hold many skips so we can be fairly flexible if this situation arises. If you require an extension on a permit, the skip may need to be removed during the process.
