Skip Hire

Our range of skips are available nationwide. We can meet customer requirements every time, regardless of skip size and customer budget.

We have years of experience in Skip Hire, it is how Supply It began! The Skip Network was our original sister company, which offered skip hire to anyone throughout the whole of the UK. Striving to offer more and providing customers with all that they need to get the job done, Supply It Site Services was born.

We work with a large range of clients. From your home improvement project to large scale commercial or shop fitting projects across the UK, we have the appropriate Skip for the job at hand.

If you require additional disposal on site, we have specialised waste clearance services available too!

When do I Need a Skip?

It is time to hire a skip when the waste from your project no longer fits in your household rubbish bin. So, when it comes to your home renovation projects such as a new extension on the back, building, decorating or gardening, you will need a skip to dispose of your construction waste.

Check out our size guide below, so you can determine what skip size you’ll need.

Skip Hire Permit Requirements

Depending on where you want the skip to be located whilst you use it, you will need a relevant permit from your council. In the UK, a permit is only required when the skip needs to be left on the road outside of the property. A permit is not requried for skips on private land.

What are the Skip Hire Safety Regulations?

Ensure your skip is compliant with government regulations when it is on the road. See the basic safety measures that ensures the safety of the general public and your skip operator:

  • The skip is not overfilled, be mindful of the potential hazard for road users and pedestrians
  • The skip does not contain any of the hazardous materials included in our list above, causing a fire risk, explosion or damage to the environment
  • Cones and amber flashing lights should be placed around the skip, so that it is safe for road traffic to see in the dark
  • Reflective markers are fixed onto both ends of the skip
  • Skip is not placed on top of manhole covers, drains, grates or other utility access points
