There are two main types of skip; covered and open. Open skips are most commonly used. However, covered skips can be used to protect the content from adverse weather. Covered skips are usually available at extra cost.

This completely depends on what you need your skip for. Please see our guide here, or call us on 01603 334530 for further guidance on skip sizes.

SURE Skip Hire prices vary depending on the size of the skip you need and how long you wish to hire it for. Generally, skips will cost between £140 – £200 for the average household.

Your waste will be processed at a fully authorised treatment facility which is regulated by UK and EU waste disposal regulations.

The waste in your skip cannot be loaded past the top of the sides. Overfilled skips will not be collected. Feel free to ask your skip delivery driver for guidance on how best to fill your skip.

Your skip can be put anywhere on private property, as long as the skip delivery driver can access the location when they collect it. You must not move a skip once it’s been placed.

You must acquire a permit from the local authority if you wish to have your skip on public land e.g. a public path or pathway. At an additional fee SURE Skip Hire is happy to help you get the permits you need.

We’d recommend an entrance point of around 9ft (width) to allow easy access for the skip wagon. alternatively, we can arrange for the skip to be placed outside of the entrance if need be. Call us on [phone number] for guidance on skip delivery points.
