What skip size do I need?

To help you decide what skip size is suitable for your needs, we have summarised the typical uses for our range of skips and Grab Lorries below.

2 & 4 cubic yard skips

These are an ideal size for garden waste, clearing out your loft or garage. The 4 yard skip is the average size that our domestic clients hire.

6 & 8 cubic yard skips

We refer to these as our ‘builders skips’ as they are the average size skips they hire from us for their building projects such as kitchen & bathroom replacements.

10, 12, 14, 16, & 18 cubic yard skips

These sized skips are typically used for bulky but light waste such as cardboard and packaging. The 10 yard skip is normally used for things such as house moves.

20, 35, 40, 50 & 60 cubic yard Roll-On-Roll-Off skips

These are used by our commercial clients for large volumes of bulky waste ranging from cardboard to hardcore.

6 & 8 wheeled Grab Lorries

Where there is bulky and difficult to move waste, the ideal solution is to use one of our Grab Lorries.

These can be used to move high volumes of soil / hardcore from a construction site or trees that have been cut down by landscapers.

If you are still unsure then call us 01604 883688 and we will gladly recommend the best skip size based upon what you need it for.
