    They're all very similar in price. Best bet is to grab a phone book and phone a few local places.

    If your going to have the skip on the road you'll need permission from the council and it should be outside your home and not your neighbours. Sorry if you knew this it's just I've known people who have been caught out in the past.

    The skip company should handle the permit.

    As for not being outside your neighbours - the permit is for the public highway?

    There are also rubbish removal companies which'll be a bit extra but they'll do the hard work for you.

    I've used http://www.buchananskips.co.uk/ a few times after a recommendation from a friend. They're always helpful and are flexible on how long you can keep it with no extra charge. Most companies are probably the same, but this lot tick all my boxes, so no complaints at all.

    Not what happened with someone we know, they got into trouble about the permit as they didn't have one, nothing was said by the skip company they also got into bother from the council for leaving it outside a neighbours house. I've heard of this happening to other people.
  • Hi Lousie

    I would recommend you to go to any business search site and their search for Skip hire companies. You will get a list of these companies for your area and the area surrounds you, For example: you can go to "yell.com" and there are many.

    Please ensure beforehand about the permit, and make sure you have one before bringing the skip on the road in front of your house.
