If the larger skips are full off soil-hardcore we will ask for this to be removed to the 2 yards only due to weight limits and there will be an addital charge to have to return to collect the skip at another time on collection - £35

We can also remove fridges, freezers and car, van tyres please tell us what you have so we can price these items for you.



What if there isnt a skip big enough?


In the event that we cannot supply a skip large enough we can offer two skips or three to make up the larger skip needed. This would be helpful as the price would be the same cost or maybe cheaper then the single large skip. Also this would be helpful due to you might not need the larger skip after all. We could also recommend a company we use our selfs for this. We can also arrange a grab for your waste, but we do supply two skips at larger sizes upon request (see the skip sizes page).



How high can I fill the skip?


 All skips must be level loaded and not loaded above the sides of the skip unless you have ordered a 5 yard skip for light waste items you can stack. If we feel it may be unsafe to transport you may have to remove some items to make it safe.



How do I make Payment?


Generally,  All skips must be paid for on delivery via cash or bank transfer payment.
