A skip looks like one of the easiest items to hire however many people are surprised to discover that they are often abused and taken advantage of. After all, there a few ground rules to abide by when it comes to skip hire and a handful of people think they are exempt from following them! In order to ensure that our clients don’t make the same mistakes, we have decided to go over some of the ways that a skip can be incorrectly used…


The most common problem that is encountered during a skip hire is when people overfill them with debris and waste. After all, a skip can only hold a certain amount of weight and whilst they look sturdy, the skip and its contents have to be loaded onto a van in order to be disposed of. If it is too heavy then the hire company will not be able to complete your skip hire because they simply won’t be able to remove it. As a result, they could either empty the skip onto the property to make it light enough or charge you for a second skip in order to safely remove the entire load.

Unsuitable Materials

Whilst skips can be generally filled with a wide range of materials, there are a few items that are unsuitable. This includes any and all electricals like refrigerators and washing machines, asbestos products, plasterboard and tyres. If you fill your skip with these items then the hire company reserve the right to refuse to take the waste away and dispose of it.

No Permits

Unless you are placing your hired skip on private land, you will require a permit from the local council. Sometimes the hire company will obtain this for you in return for a small fee however most will trust that the client has got one themselves. Unfortunately, around 10% of clients do not apply for a skip hire permit for their skip and this can leave them slapped with a hefty fine.
