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.

happy with price and the skip. I had to call up the glasgow city council to get a permit though. I could not put it on my driveway. The skip was in good condition and the driver called me in advance to let me know he was delivering. Also watch out for people dumping rubbish into your skip as they walk by as u can get charged more.

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.

We can also offer wait and load and multiple, regular skip hire services to such clients.

Business skip hire

  • Glasgow was the location of the very first international football match in 1872 when Scotland and England played out a nil-nil draw at the West of Scotland Cricket Club in Partick. Hampden Park – Scotland’s national football stadium – is located on Glasgow’s southside.

     

  • Glasgow is Scotland’s largest city with a population of around 610,000 within the city boundaries itself and some 1.2 million in the wider Greater Glasgow area.

  • Glasgow is home to one of Europe’s biggest public libraries – the Mitchell Library at Charing Cross – which houses important city archives and special collections in an imposing building.
