Skip Hire Simplified

If you've never hired a skip in before it can be confusing. We'll explain how it works...

You phone us

We need some information from you so we’ll ask: the skip size you want (or the amount of waste), your address, the type of waste, your desired delivery date & where the skip is to be dropped e.g. drive, road or garden. We’ll then quote you a price and if you are happy we’ll take a card payment and book your hire.

We deliver the skip

On delivery day, our skip driver will deliver and unload the skip at the given address in the place you have advised. You then have a week to load your waste into it.

We collect the skip

Once you have finished with your skip simply call us to arrange a collection day when you would like the filled skip to be taken away and our skip lorry driver will call and collect it from your property. If you need to hire any additional skips then please advise and we can arrange a swap over.

I ordered a skips from REM Waste but they failed to turn up. I then later found out that it was a broker company that orders skips from local companies. I had to find a skip that delivered the same day as the builders were planning to start work. I called about and most companies did not answer. I got through to Ryan at skip hire glasgow who addvised me or permit needs and what size i would need. Skip was delivered that evening.It was the first time i have ever needed to call a skip company. Ryan was really helpfull and the price i was quoted was 70 quid cheaper than the REM company.Thanks again Ryan, will use your company again.

  • Ayrshire has its very own breed of cow – the Ayrshire – recognised since 1814 and exported around the world, this red & white cattle bred for efficient milk production was once the backbone of Ayrshire’s dairy industry.
