Are you renovating or refurbishing a property? Clearing a garden or site? Does your company handle volumes of industrial waste? As one of the leading skip hire companies in Sandy, we provide you with the best possible service, for the best possible price.
We offer a range of skips,including 4yd³, 6yd³, 7yd³, 8yd³, 12yd³ and 14yd³ sizes. We have drop-ends and enclosures if required, depending on what exactly it is you’ll be filling the skip with.
A drop-end makes loading bulky items easier, quicker, and safer.Rather than loading waste over the sides, it can be loaded via ramp from the ‘drop-end’—ideal for wheelbarrows full of materials, and for reducing risk of strain injury. Available on 4yd³, 6yd³, 7yd³, 8yd³, 12yd³, 14yd³.
An enclosure is a caging coming up from the sides, which allows for greater capacity for lighter waste, e.g. cardboard and plastic. Available on 12yd³.
When you’ve worked out which skip is most suited to your type(s) of waste (which we’ll discuss with you during your quote), we’ll then decide on the most appropriate delivery time for you. We’re able to deliver the next day, or possibly even as soon as the same day, depending on the time the skip is ordered, and where abouts it’s going to be placed. If you’ll need a permit, this can take up to 7 days to arrange.
Generally, skips are hired for two weeks, although we can tailor this to your individual needs if you require a longer or shorter slot.We’re able to organise a ‘wait and load’ service for difficult-to-reach locations, or if you’re in a rush to get your waste removed asap.
Our skip hire is efficient and reliable right from the very beginning, starting with your no obligation quote, and ending in our successful removal of your waste.Please read our below FAQs for advice and info on the best skip for your requirements, details on the process, and what we do with your waste after collection.
