FAQ's

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 drop us a line or use our contact form above and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

How much does hiring a skip cost?

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 Because of this we do not quote direct prices until we know exactly what your needs are.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 pounds.

What can I put in my skip?

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.

Where can I put my skip?

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.

What access is required?

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.

Will my waste be recycled?

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.
