Quick Guide to Skip Hire

FindaSkip is here to make your skip hire experience quick & easy with our quick guide to skip hire.

Below is a checklist to help you achieve the best results and easy skip hire.

We would like to highlight one particular mistake that people often make. Don’t think ‘less is more’, think ‘more is more!’.

You can save time & money by ordering a skip that is slightly larger than you might need. Ordering a skip that is too small often results in having to order another.

The cost of 2 skips at the same yardage as the larger skip will always cost more.

Please also note that it is illegal to overload and transport a skip.
