Although hiring a skip may seem relatively straight forward, the government has added a confusing document that most people have to fill in before they can get their hands on a skip – a permit! In fact, the majority of people land themselves in a spot of bother because they aren’t aware that a permit was necessary prior to hiring a skip.

Here at PWM Skip Hire, we want to ensure that our customers have a stress-free experience which is why we have decided to go over everything you need to know about skip hire…

Hiring a skip requires a permit if you intend to place it on public land such as the roadside. This is because the local council have to be aware of its presence when it is going to be on a road or pavement where public right of way is in place. If you don’t invest in a permit before you hire a skip, then you are very likely to be heavily fined by the local government and your skip could be taken away before your hire is over.

With this said, getting a permit for a skip couldn’t be easier and usually they can be arranged through the local government. In fact, some skip hire companies will actually apply for the permit on your behalf and add the price onto your overall hire cost. Of course, it is always wise to contact your local council regardless, to ensure that you have the necessary documents in place.

Unfortunately, there are no guidelines that the council have to follow in terms of permit pricing and this means that a permit can vary depending on your location, however the average one costs around £25. With this said, residents in central London can expect to pay at least £50 whereas Bristol permits have been known to cost just £13.

Unless you are going to be placing your skip on private land, you are going to require a permit. Luckily, the process is relatively straight forward and you should be able to hire your skip 3-4 days after requesting a permit. With this said, it could take up to 10 days for a permit to be issued for a restricted area.
