Skip sizes:

Our smallest skip available for hire is the 2m3 skip bin. Perfect for those small, quick jobs, this skip is approximately 1.5 metres (width) by 1.8 metres (length) by 0.9 metres (height). In terms of capacity, this sized skip bin is approximately equivalent to 8 full wheelie bins, or in other terms, 3 average size trailer loads of waste.

Our second smallest skip available for hire is the 3 cubic metre skip bin. Slightly bigger than the 2m3 bin, this skip is ideal if you don’t have that much to dispose of but want to be sure you don’t run out of room. This skip is also approximately 1.5 metres (width) but is longer at 2.3  metres (length) and higher at 1.2 metres (height). In terms of capacity, this sized skip bin is approximately equivalent to 11 full wheelie bins, or 4.5 average size trailer loads of waste.

The smaller option for one of our medium skips is the 4 cubic metre skip. This skip bin is actually narrower than the smaller skip bins at only approximately 1.4 metres (width) and retains the same height at 1.2 metres (height), but is much longer at 2.3 metres (length). This size of skip is perfect for those heftier jobs that require a larger capacity than what our smaller bins can handle. The 4m3 skip bins provide an approximate capacity equivalent to 16 full wheelie bins, or 6 average size trailer loads of waste.

If the 4 cubic metre skip isn’t enough for your waste disposal needs, why not go up another size to our larger medium skip bin – the 6m3 skip bin. Still relatively narrow at only approximately 1.45 metres (width), and once again retaining the same height at 1.2 metres (height), the 6m3 skip bin is again far longer at 3.55m (length)! Perfectly sized for those bigger jobs, this capable medium sized skip provides an impressive approximate capacity equivalent to 24 full wheelie bins, or 9 average size trailer loads of waste.

For those bigger jobs you can’t beat our large 8 cubic metre skip bin. Perfect for a proper clear out, this skip bin has a magnificent approximate capacity of 32 wheelie bins! One of our widest bins at approximately 1.7 metres in width, this skip remains the same height as our smaller bins at 1.2 metres yet is much longer at 4 metres in length. The equivalent capacity of the 8m3 skip bin in terms of trailer loads of waste is approximately 12.

The biggest skip in our range is the whopping 10 cubic metre skip bin suitable for almost any job you could conceive. This gigantic skip is our widest, tallest and longest measuring approximately 1.7m (width) by 1.4 metres (length) by 1.5 metres (height). You’ll be hard pressed to run out of room in this skip which has an approximate capacity equivalent to 42 full wheelie bins, or 15 whole loads of waste from your average sized trailer!
