AM Skip Hire has a range of skips for hire for the removal of domestic and construction waste. Specifically, in the building and construction trade, being able to do a professional job requires the right equipment available at each stage of the project.

Why not use a builders skip with a door. They are ideal because wheel barrows can be wheeled into the skip which makes life so much easier when disposing of waste and getting it into the skip!

Before ordering your builders skip you should try to determine what waste you need to get rid of and how much. Be realistic when deciding as AM Skips cannot collect the builders skip if the waste is loaded higher than the sides of the skip. This is because overloaded builders skips are dangerous and cannot be legally transported. You also need to think about where the builders skip is to be positioned and access to the area it will be positioned.

The following skip sizes will give you an idea of what’s best for you to order.

Mini Skip

Mini skips are great for household waste. The 2 cubic yard skip allows you to move small amounts of waste with ease and is the perfect skip to hire for your next small household or garden project.

Midi Skip

For mid-sized amounts of garden or household waste hire the 4 Cubic Yards (Midi Skip). This is also perfect if you are having a small bathroom or kitchen redone or garden clear-out. (Approx 30-40 bin bags)

Maxi Skip

The maxi skip is, on the whole, the most popular size of skips, and is suitable for bulkier waste, for example if you are having a lot of building work done or have larger furniture items to dispose of. These skips can have a door which drops down for ease of loading. They are our biggest size and can be used for heavy loads of soil and rubble. (Approx 60-80 bin bags)

Builders Skip

The builders skip is the main skip used in the industry. Used by builders and construction companies, it will hold 7 cubic yards of waste and is big enough to hold large items like a three piece suite and all types of builders waste. Frequently used for large excavation jobs such as digging foundations for extensions or for complete house clearances, this size of skip can be used in a range of situations.
