Skip Hire FAQs

We're here to try and make skip hire as easy as possible. To help you out, we've posted some of the most commonly asked questions below. If you don't find the information you want, feel free to get in touch with us by visiting our contact page.

Like most things in life, costing a skip is not simple. Factors such as skip size, location, space for the skip and need for permits all play a part. Because of this we do not quote direct prices until we know exactly what your needs are. Having said that our range of skips start from around only £65.

We do our best to get you the best deal possible, so whilst our competitors are happy to set their skip prices across the UK (and make you pay more for the privilege) we prefer to do a little more work and get you the best price we can.

Skips are designed for inert general waste only. Changes in legislation mean that the following items are not permitted:

  • Fridges/freezers
  • Asbestos
  • Plasterboard
  • Batteries
  • TVs/Electronics
  • Paints/Solvents
  • Fluorescent lights

This is not an exhaustive list - if you're not sure, please feel free to contact us.

You can put a skip anywhere on your own property, providing it does not block access. If you cannot put the skip on your own property it may be possible to arrange a permit to put the skip on the road. We're more than happy to arrange this for you at no extra cost (please note the permit itself will be an additional fee). We also offer a wait and load facility.

Please note that loaded skips can be very heavy, and can therefore cause damage to paved or tarmac driveways. If you need advice on how to combat this please contact us.

The skip will be delivered on an LGV, so you need to be certain that where you put your skip is accessible. If you are unsure, please contact us.

At AMA we have a strong commitment to the environment and aim to recycle 80% of your waste. Some websites claim to be able to recycle a higher percentage of waste than this, but we feel that achieving a realistic aim is more important than flashing big numbers and doing nothing in reality.
