How Much to Hire a Skip?

The cost of hiring a skip can vary enormously depending on which skip hire company you call and how busy they are. Skip companies based very near the address to which you need the skip delivered, and those with a lot of extra capacity, are more likely to offer cheaper skip hire prices than those who are not. Skipandbin.com provides skip companies with an open and dynamic means of publishing their skip hire prices to a large audience and adjusting them to reflect how busy they are. Saving you time and money, and helping skip companies operate more efficiently.

LATEST NEWS: Skip Price Research by Skipandbin.com shows large North/South divide

Our latest survey highlights the big differences in skip hire prices that exist across the UK. The main reasons given by skip companies for these regional variations were the number of local competitors, the strength of the local economy and hence how much waste was being created, and the availability of nearby waste processing facilities. Exeter, for example, seems to have relatively few operators and limited recycling facilities – so its skip prices are among the highest in the country.

Skip hire cost benchmarks

Many people are surprised at the how much it costs to hire a skip. Unfortunately the cost of fuel and disposal keeps rising, so these days it’s not unusual to see a price of more than £200 after VAT being charged for even a smallish sized skip. Also, if you plan on putting the skip on a public road, you will need to add the extra cost of a skip permit and, in certain areas, also pay for a parking suspension. However, waste disposal is just like any other service business, in that if you hunt around there are some great deals available. That is why skipandbin.com is so useful, because we take all the leg work away for you, by comparing the cheapest skip hire prices being offered today, and then showing you which is the best skip price for your postcode instantly.
