Those piles of rubbish in your garden can’t stay there forever. They are unseemly and can attract rodents and wildlife to your residence. Perhaps you’re renovating a home or business and need a large vessel to assist in the disposal of unwanted materials. You need to hire a skip.
Hiring a skip is an efficient way to dispose of materials that can’t fit into your bin. The size of skip you need will vary based on the volume of rubbish. The weight of debris being hauled away can also impact what size skip you will hire. Whether you’re looking for a small or large skip hire in Amersham, there are numerous options available.

Variations of Skips
Skips typically range from three to twenty cubic yards. Variations of a traditional skip include:
- Open-end drop-door skips
- Miniature skips
- Enclosed skips
Open-end drop-door skips make loading your refuse much easier. Simply walk into or drive your wheelbarrow in, unload, and you’re set to go. Miniature skips are suitable for small projects such as cleaning out a residential garage. Enclosed skips are the ideal option when hiring for long-term projects. Locking loading doors prevent your neighbours from rummaging about and fly tipping.
You can also find companies that supply grab lorries in addition to skips. Grab lorries can easily lift and transport materials that are too heavy to carry.
Be wary that if your skip will not fit in your yard, you will require a permit to park it in the road. Permit restrictions vary by council but licensed skip hires can help you file the appropriate forms to obtain such permits.
