Skip hire process outlined

Terrified by the thought of hiring a skip? There's no need to be! Here's what happens...

Phone us

We’ll ask for some details e.g. where you are, the skip size you need or how much waste you have for collection, when you want it delivered, how long you need it for and where you want us to place it e.g. driveway, parking space or road. Our operator will then give you a price. To book you just make card payment over the phone. Simple.

Skip dropped off

Our skip lorry driver will arrive at the given address and drop the skip where you want it. The skip is on hire to you for up to a week for you to load and dispose of your waste in it.

Skip taken away

Upon filling your skip (or having disposed of all the waste that you have) phone to let us know and we will arrange a day to come and take the filled skip away. If you have more waste and require another skip then let us know and we can arrange a new skip hire and exchange it when we come to collect.

I ordered a skips from REM Waste but they failed to turn up. I then later found out that it was a broker company that orders skips from local companies. I had to find a skip that delivered the same day as the builders were planning to start work. I called about and most companies did not answer. I got through to Ryan at skip hire glasgow who addvised me or permit needs and what size i would need. Skip was delivered that evening.It was the first time i have ever needed to call a skip company. Ryan was really helpfull and the price i was quoted was 70 quid cheaper than the REM company.Thanks again Ryan, will use your company again.
