Glasgow Skip Sizes Offered

A 4 yard skip (often referred to as a “midi” skip) is the smallest skip size that we offer and it's typically used for small domestic DIY jobs, room clearance, bathroom refits or gardening jobs. It has a capacity of around 40 standard-sized black bin bags with an approximate size of: 1.8m long x 1.3m wide x 1m high (approx). You can try and use that description to determine which skip size will work best for you, or you can talk with one of our team members and get help choosing the perfect size for your needs.

Get the Perfect Size

It's not always easy deciding what skip size is right. That's why it's helpful to work with our team and to also consider the different skip hire prices when considering your options. Our experienced staff members can help you decide on the right size for your needs and help you cover your project or cleaning goals without purchasing too much space in the process. While it's helpful to know that a single 4-yard skip will hold around 45 bags of rubbish, it can be difficult visualizing how many bags you'll have in the end if you aren't already finished with your project. This is where one of our qualified staff members can offer assistance. Call our team today and describe your project. Our hire Glasgow skip experts will help you estimate the best size for your specific needs and get you started on your next project.

How do I hire a skip in Glasgow?

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. After a short conversation with our team, you’ll know what you can expect to pay, as well as when you can expect the skip delivery. Use this information to help you plan your project.
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. During that period you can use the skip to do away with all your rubbish and when you’re finished we’ll remove it. If you decide you need more time, you can request an extended period from our team. Other than the skip you will have to supply all your own bin bags and supplies you need to complete your cleanup. With a skip available the cleanup will go much more quickly though, and you’ll be amazed at how fast the work is done.

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. You can change the skips as many times as you need during your project, and you can even choose a different size for your location in Glasgow city if you need to.

great service - pay a little more than a skip and they do all the work for you. Very helpful people and they don't seem to be trying to make you pay as much as possible, in fact they do seem to want to save you money

Guys were courteous and quick. Called to say they were on their way. There was one box they couldn't get to (long story involving a damp contractor and a burst pipe); so they went and did another job nearby and popped back later to get the last box of junk. Lovely guys.

Quick, efficient and a lot less has trouble than hiring a skip. It took two guys just under an hour to get rid of all my junk. Which was not easy, as there was nowhere convenient to park and I had a LOT of junk, and most of it pretty heavy. I would recommend them to anyone and will use them again in the future.
