4 YARD SKIP
|4 Cubic yards

6 YARD SKIP
|6 Cubic yards
(4 cubic metres)
|2.6m x 1.5m x 1.2m

7 YARD SKIP
|7 Cubic yards
(5.4 cubic metres)
|2.8 x 1.6m x 1.2m
|The 7yd skip is one size down from what is commonly known as a 'builders skip', it can be used for larger household or office renovations and larger garden makeovers. These skips are available with a drop end if required.
8 YARD SKIP

(6.1 cubic metres)

|12 Cubic Yards
(9.8 cubic metres)
|3.7m x 1.75m x 1.7m
|These skips are most suitable for large projects but cannot contain heavy inert soils or rubble. These skips are available with a lid for added security.

Do you have plans to renovate a house? To clear a garden or site? Or does your business handle industrial waste? We’re one of St Neots’ leading skip hire companies, providing the best possible skip hire service, for the best possible price.
We offer skips in the following sizes: 4yd³, 6yd³, 7yd³, 8yd³, 12yd³, 14yd³. Depending on the types of materials you’ll be filling the skip with, we have drop-ends available on the 4yd³, 6yd³, 7yd³, 8yd³, 12yd³ and 14yd³, and enclosures available on the 12yd³.
A drop-end skip quite simply means that the end drops out. This is handy for bulky items, as rather than loading over the sides, waste can be loaded via ramp from the end—perfect for wheelbarrows, for saving time, and for reducing risk of strain injuries.
A skip enclosure is a caging that comes up from the sides. This allows for greater capacity for lighter waste such as cardboard and plastic.
Once you’ve decided on the skip best suited to your waste (which we can discuss during your quote), we’ll organise the right time for delivery for you. We’re able to offer same day or next day delivery if needed, depending on when you order the skip, and where it’s going. If a permit is required, this is likely to require up to 7 days to arrange.
Most skips are hired for a two-weekly slot, however, we can tailor this to requirements if you need more or less time.We may even be able to organise a ‘wait and load’ waste removal service for difficult-to-reach locations, or if you’re in a rush to get your waste taken away.
Hiring a skip with us is efficient and reliable right from the start, beginning with your no obligation quote, and ending in the successful removal of your waste. Read our FAQs below for more advice on the best skip for your needs, how the process works, and what we do with your waste.
