Please note that the images and sizes below are approximate and are for guidance purposes only. Some of our skip containers vary slightly in dimensions but all hold the cubic yard capacity as described. This is because different manufactures sometimes have different designs in their skips. We operate a strict LEVEL LOAD policy and there are no exceptions, so please be realistic when ordering. The sides of the skip is the maximum height allowed

Other things to consider....
A 9 feet (2.75 mtrs) access is normally adequate clearance for our vehicles. This measurement is for the rear of our vehicles to reverse safely onto driveways. Wider access is required if going between buildings/fences etc. Please ask if you are still unsure.
The Public Highway
A Highways Licence is required for ALL skips placed on the public highway (this includes grass verges). No Exceptions! If you do not own the land where you wish the skip to be placed, then please be aware a Highways Licence may be required
T J Skips only accept Non-Hazardous Waste. Some types of wastes have conditions to their disposal so please look at our ‘Waste’ page for further details on these and the wastes we do NOT accept
Our hire periods are up to 14 days or up to 4 weeks (maximum hire period) for all skips going on private property. You do not have to keep the skip for the full period; simply call when you have finished. Additional charges apply for skips kept over the agreed hire period. Skips going on the road are restricted by the Highways Licence validity periods which are set at 14 days. We also offer a Wait & Load and Same Day Delivery & Collection service (subject to availability)
