Information - Prices

Of course every skip hire company has their own price list, but it's a competitive market and you may be able to get a discount off their list skip hire prices - but only if you ask!

We've noticed that very few companies publish their skip prices on the internet or anywhere else for that matter, which makes it difficult for people to get an idea of how much a skip is going to cost. By requesting a quote, we can give you a more accurate idea of prices for your particular area - there are some wide variations across the country.



When you ask for a quote for skip hire make sure you request the total cost in order to get an accurate price. Skip companies will often quote a general rate from their price list without asking for the specific details of the hire you need. It's always best to fully explain what you need in order to get the true price. For example let them know what size skip you need, how long you are likely to keep it for and whether you will need to site the skip on a public highway.

Also don't forget that skip hire prices vary widely by area, so make sure the skip company knows exactly where you live when they quote your price. You don't want any surprises, especially if you have gone to the trouble of arranging an on-street license beforehand.

Another important point to note is that certain types of waste will attract additional charges, so be sure to let the company know if you suspect your waste may fall into that category. Then you'll get a more accurate price from the outset.
