Skip Hire Sizes

What size Skip do I need?

4 Yard Skip – Approx 25-35 Bin Bags – Uses: Small Kitchen and Bathroom projects or garden waste. The 4 yd skip can be used for most household renovations and will fit on the majority of drives. Some companies even have smaller skip wagons that can deliver these smaller skips where a larger vehicle couldn’t, this may mean they can be delivered to properties with more difficult access, potentially saving the price of a road permit.
6 Yard Skip – Approx 40-55 Bin Bags – Uses: Medium kitchen or bathroom renovations. These skips are sometimes called Midi Skips. Midi Skips are a less popular size as smaller renovations can be taken care of with a mini skip and if more yardage is needed the 8 yard skip usually represents better value for money.
8 Yard Skip – Approx 60-75 Bin Bags – Uses: Residential or shop refurbishment. This 8 yard skip size is also known as a builders skip, it is the most common size used by tradespeople and construction companies. Builders skips are big enough to hold a large amount of waste from medium size jobs. Big enough for renovations but small enough that they will fit on most residential streets and even some large driveways
12 Yard Skip – Approx 90-110 Bin Bags – Uses: Large office or house clearance. These should not be filled with concrete, bricks, or soil. Known as Large skips, a 12 yard skip would be ideal for those bigger waste disposal jobs. Consideration must be made for the size of this type of skip as they will not fit on the majority of driveways. As such may require a permit if planned to be left on public highways.
