Additional factors that may effect skip hire prices

Road Permits

More information on road permits in England and Wales here. To keep the costs down and cut out the need for a skip road permit, consider having a wait and load service.

Bay Suspensions

Bay suspensions are more common in the London area and can considerably increase the cost of hiring a skip.


Some suppliers will charge extra for plasterboard.

Hazardous waste

Hazardous waste should always be handled with care, always seek professional advice before making a skip booking.


Some suppliers charge extra per mattress the charges can vary from £15 to £55

Overloading skips


Domestic seating is now classed as hazardous waste due to the fire-retardant chemicals used to protect them from fires. Suppliers charge per item depending on the size of the item, for example, a settee or just a cushion. We can give you the prices for these if you do need to dispose of any.

If you overload your skip above the level load line you could incur additional charges, this may also include a wasted journey if the skip is not safe to take due to overloading.

Wasted Journeys

If your skip is blocked in, or overloaded, you may incur wasted journey fees. If you order a skip and there is not enough space for the skip to be sited this may also incur a wasted journey, we would always suggest checking your access before ordering.

Length of hire

The normal skip hire period ranges from 7-14 days, if you need the skip longer you may incur fees per extra day or extra week.
