Skip Hire FAQ

Where and when can I have the skip delivered?

We deliver skips to all suburbs/shires, Monday to Saturday into wherever accessible with the various sized trucks we have. Generally skips are delivered into driveways, or positioned onto the footpath (council regulations apply).

We also deliver to all businesses, offices, factories, and building sites. We can offer an out of hours service to accommodate any contractual constraints you have with your project.

Do I need permission from the Council to place a skip on the footpath?

Yes, a footpath permit is required by the local council. Permits are done free of charge directly to council by our office for customers requiring footpath permits.

What is the average size of skip used?

We have several different skip sizes including 2,3,4,6,8 and 10 cubic metre skips, and have found generally builders use 6 cubic metre skips, and householders generally hire around 4 or 5 cubic metre skips.

We also have 10 and 12m hook bins for those larger jobs.

Is there anything I cannot put in the skips?

In accordance with environment legislation, Asbestos, tyres, liquids, paints, or general hazardous materials.

Most all other wastes such as greenery can be mixed with household and construction/demolition wastes.

Are there any skip loading requirements?

Yes. All skips are to be loaded no higher than the rim. With nothing protruding from any direction, and all waste to be fully contained within the skips capacity. There is no exception to this rule under transport law.

Overloaded skips are not lifted and extra charges are applied in the event of overloads.

How long can I keep a skip?

Skips are generally hired out for 7 days. Upon delivery there will be a ‘pick up day’ (as arranged with the customer) written on the docket, so you know when we’ll be back to collect the skip.

Some people prefer shorter hires to do their work and get the skip out of the way, others prefer the full hire.

Longer hire is available and we would be pleased to advise customers on request if extended hire is required.

How much notice is required for skip hire?

24hrs notice is usually required for deliveries, change-overs, or collections. We do our utmost to accommodate people on tight schedules and work with you. However, we always appreciate as much notice as possible.
