The staff at Taylor Brothers are always happy to provide advice in relation to the size of skip that you need to hire for the job in hand.
Skip sizes are measured in "cubic yards". A cubic yard is equal to 1 yard x 1 yard x 1 yard i.e. a 4 yard skip holds 4 cubic yards of waste by volume rather than being 4 yards in length.
We have skips with "drop-doors" available to hire in both midi and maxi sizes at no additional cost. These skips are useful for ease of access when you want to barrow heavy waste e.g. brick, soil and clay from landscaping. If you need one, don't forget to ask about availability when ordering.
* The information provided on this page is for general use and information only. The size of skip ordered is ultimately the decision of the hirer. The information provided above is standard across the industry and also based on our own experience. We cannot accept any responsibility for any loss incurred due to the the size of skip that is ordered based on advice given here or by our staff.
We have a range of larger skips available in sizes ranging from 12 to 18 cubic yards, some of which are open skips and some are lockable. We do not currently stock roll on roll off skips.
The larger skips are charged on weight rather than a fixed price. Our charges are based on a fixed amount for the Hire and Haulage of the skip plus an additional variable charge calculated once we have weighed the waste in the skip. The minimum weight charge is 1 tonne.
These skips are ideal for office refits, packaging and light items in particular as it often proves cheaper to hire one large skip which contains "low weight" waste rather than two builders skips at a fixed price.
Lockable skips are available for contracts where open skips can't be left overnight e.g. schools and in town centres.
