Skips for Hire Pricing Factors

The size of skip is the major factor in how much a skip will cost you, there are a number of other ways that can influence the pricing. Below, are some of the other ways that may affect how much you have to pay.

Cost of Council Permits

If the skip is to be be placed on a public road, you will normally require a skip hire permit. If you are able to place the skip on your own property, such as a driveway or other land that you own, you will not require a skip permit. Skip hire permits are issued by  your local council, and different local councils charge different fees for a permit, often ranging from £15 - £60. As skip hire permits are usually obtained from the council by your skip hire company, they can often be included within the skip hire prices you are quoted, you'll be able to see which ones do when using our postcode comparison, above, by just entering your full postcode.

Skip Hire Prices by Local Regions

Skip hire prices often vary from city to city, and hire costs are higher in Greater London and the South of England. The cheapest skip hire prices can be found further north, in countries such as Scotland, Northern Ireland and the places in the North of England. For example, hiring a 6 yard skip in London will cost you £135-£220, yet the same sized skip in Yorkshire will cost you £90-115.

Hire Period

Something else that commonly influences the price is the length of skip hire. Obviuos;y, the longer the skip hire period, the more you'll have to pay. However, this is not always the case, as some skip hire providers now offer unlimited hire periods.

Longer hire periods could also result in an increased skip permit costs. If you've positioned your skip on council land, long term hire will may require permit extensions and renewals, as most councils only issue permits that are valid from 14 days to 1 month.
