Skips aren't cheap and people often ask why it's so expensive to hire a skip. The simple answer is that to provide a fully legal skip hire service there are a lot of overheads to consider such as:

Skip Wagon: £25,000 and Skips at £400 for a standard skip

Vehicle Insurance: £1,500 per year per vehicle
Public Liability: £1,250 per year per vehicle
Employer's Liability: £1,250 per year per vehicle
Skip Wagon driver: £20,000+ per year
Fuel: £13,000 per year
Office staff: £18,000 per year per member of staff
Landfill taxes: £18 per ton

Why isn't my skip dropped off and picked up when I want it?
