Skip Terms and Conditions



All skips are held at the risk of the hirer from the time of delivery to the time of collection and the hirer is liable for any damage caused to the skip or to any third party.

We accept NO liability for any damage caused to pavements, driveways, footpaths, gateways, trees, grassed areas, drainage or drain covers.

A permit must be obtained BEFORE skips are placed on the highway. This is arranged by us on your behalf, the charge for this is £101 including VAT and is for a maximum of 2 weeks.

All skips must be of a level load. Any overloaded skips will NOT be collected until they are level and safe to collect.

We now charge £20 + VAT per each item that customers put in the skips for sofas, fridges, freezers and mattresses.

The hire period is a MAXIMUM of 2 weeks. There will be a charge of £25 + VAT per week thereafter for overdue skips, unless prior arrangement has been agreed.

Payment is required on delivery for all non-account customers and no skip will be collected until payment is received and cleared.
