Skip Sizes Available:

  • 4 Yard Skip
  • 8 Yard Skip
  • 14 Yard Skip
  • 20 Yard Skip

A 4 yard skip (sometimes termed a “midi” skip) is the smallest skip size supplied by us. It's typically used for smaller domestic DIY jobs, room clearance, bathroom strip-outs or gardening work. It holds the equivalent of 40 standard-sized black bin bags. It's approximate size is 1.8m long x 1.3m wide x 1m high

Price Includes:

Delivery to site, standard 7 day hire, collection & licensed waste disposal

As the “standard builder's skip”, the 8 yard skip is our most popular size, suited to  both domestic and trade customers. It is commonly hired by householders for jobs including flat, (smaller) house and garage clearances and by the trade for small office clearances, shop refits or building works producing soil and rubble (e.g. general building, landscaping, driveways). It holds the equivalent of 65-80 standard-sized black bin bags. It's approximate size is 3.1m long x  1.9m wide x 1.6m high.

Prices includes:

Delivery to site, standard 7 day hire, collection & licensed waste disposal

A 14 yard skip is the preferred choice for larger house clearances and commercial work including medium-sized office clearances, retail unit refits & small warehouse clearances which often involve the disposal of awkwardly-shaped or bulky waste e.g. timber, metal, plastic and commercial packaging materials. It holds the equivalent of 115-135 standard-sized black bin bags. It's approximate size is 4m x 1.9m x 2m high.

Prices includes:

Delivery to site, standard 7 day hire, collection & licensed waste disposal

A 20 yard skip is ideally suited to larger commercial/industrial/public sector premises including refits, refurbishments and clearances of warehouses, schools, offices and retail units. It is also used on sites where continuous amounts of waste are produced & require regular removal. It holds the equivalent of 200-220 standard-sized black bin bags. It's approximate size is 7m long x 2.5m wide x 1.9m high.

Our Prices Include:

Delivery to site, standard 7 day hire, collection & licensed waste disposal

How do I hire a skip?

Never hired a skip before? We make it easy for you. Here's how...

Give us a call

We’ll ask you for some basic information – including what size of skip you want (or if you’re unsure regarding size we’ll advise you), the kind of waste you are disposing of, your location, whether the the skip is to be placed on a driveway/private land or the road, your preferred delivery date and the likely duration of the hire. This allows us to quote our skip hire price immediately & if you want to book in then we can take a card payment straight away & organise your hire

We deliver the skip

On the specified date, we’ll deliver the skip to the address given where it will be unloaded from our lorry into the space you have set aside for it. Our normal, standard hire is for a maximum duration of 7 days during which you fill it with your waste.

We collect the skip

As soon as you have filled the skip (or have finished with it) then please call to let us know that you’d like it collected. We’ll then schedule your uplift into our drivers’ timetables. We always aim to remove skips as quickly as possible (subject to our schedule). If you need an additional skip (new hire charges apply) then please let us know when you call and we can deliver an empty skip when we come to collect.

I ordered a skips from REM Waste but they failed to turn up. I then later found out that it was a broker company that orders skips from local companies. I had to find a skip that delivered the same day as the builders were planning to start work. I called about and most companies did not answer. I got through to Ryan at skip hire Glasgowwho addvised me or permit needs and what size i would need. Skip was delivered that evening.It was the first time i have ever needed to call a skip company. Ryan was really helpfull and the price i was quoted was 70 quid cheaper than the REM company.Thanks again Ryan, will use your company again.
