If you’re looking to renovate your house, empty your garden, or clear a large volume of industrial waste, as a leading skip hire company in Biggleswade, we provide the best possible service, for the best possible price.
Skips are available in these sizes: 4yd³, 6yd³, 7yd³, 8yd³, 12yd³, 14yd³. Depending on what kinds of materials you need removing, we can offer 4yd³, 6yd³, 7yd³, 8yd³, 12yd³ and 14yd³ with drop-ends, and a 12yd³ with an enclosure.
Drop-end:In simple terms, the end of the skip drops out. Useful for bulkier waste, rather than loading over the sides, items can be loaded by a ramp from the end. This is ideal for wheelbarrows, to save time, and for avoiding strain injuries.
Enclosure:This is a side caging around the top of the skip. It permits larger capacity for lighter items e.g., cardboard, plastic, etc.
When you’ve chosen the best skip for your waste (which we can of course decide during your quote), we’ll then organise what time you’d like it to be delivered. We can provide next day or even same day delivery if required, depending on the date and time of offering, and the location of placement. If you’ll need a permit, it’s likely to take up to a week to arrange with the relevant local authority.
Skips are generally hired for two weeks, but we can discuss your requirements during your quote if you’ll need a longer slot.We’re able to organise a quick ‘wait and load’ service for more challenging settings, or if your waste needs to be taken away sooner rather than later.
