Please call the Proskips team on 0208 879 9892 for any of your residential skip hire needs. We are here to help and can guide you through the process of booking a skip, making sure that you are booking the right service for the job at hand.
So which size skip may be best for the job:
We can offer a complete range of skip hire services from a 4 Yard Mini Skips to a 12 Yard Bulky Waste Skips. The standard skip that is most common across the streets of the UK is a 7/8 Yard (General Builders Skip). This is because it can take both heavy and light waste types.
You must remember to consider what you are throwing out both in volume and waste type as that will dictate the size needed.
We categorize waste, as a general rule, into heavy waste and light waste, hazardous waste.
You cannot put any hazardous waste into skips (This includes things like Plasterboard, COSHH waste, WEEE Waste, Mattresses and Fridge/Freezers).
Heavy Waste such as soil, tiles, bricks etc can only go into 4,6 and 8 Yard Skips. Any skips bigger than this can not lift heavy waste and you may be stuck with a skip on your drive that you need to empty prior to collection so please take note.
Light Waste types can go in any of the skip sizes we do and is more about about the volume of materials you have than weight.
If you need to place a skip on a public high road you need a licence. Please check the road restrictions outside your property and call the team at Proskips who can help guide you through the application process and where possible apply for the licence on your behalf. For further information please call.
