Don’t Waste Money on a Large Skip
Your Complete Guide To Mini Skips
Skip & Bin Hire for Any Project
Pros Of Mini Skips
- The cheapest on the market, so will keep costs to a minimum.
- Due to their size, they are easier to locate than larger skips so will fit into a small garden or parking space.
- Fits the equivalent of 4 wheelie bins of rubbish.
Cons of Mini Skips
- If you under-estimate the amount of rubbish you have it will be more expensive to rent 2 mini skips than it would to order the next size up.
- They are the least popular size so there are fewer available from suppliers so may be more difficult to source.
- The lorry delivering it will be large so you will still need space for the lorry to deliver.

OUR CUSTOMER STORIES
Better service starts here
My husband and I decided to try and save money replacing our kitchen by taking out the old one ourselves. At first, I thought we would take the rubbish away in our car but then a friend told me about this website. I discovered that skips are not as expensive as I thought and we opted for a 4-yard skip which fit on our driveway. I would recommend getting a quote from this website as it was definitely cheaper than I thought. – Mary Crabtree, Liverpool
I approached skip hire pros because my building company was carrying out some renovation work. I had used the same skip hire company for years and I wanted to see if I could cut the cost. I received 3 different quotes within 24 hours and I did make a saving on what I would normally have paid. The website was easy to use and the whole experience was very smooth. I would recommend the site to any builder who wanted to see if they could get a more competitive price than their normal supplier. – Ross Wilmer, Wilmer and Scarth Ltd
I recently contacted you to help me order a skip to a rental property I am renovating in London. Being in Somerset at the time I thought it would be a real headache; however, you found me three quotes from different companies. I found the company I chose to be very professional and they even organised a license for me to be able to put the skip on the road. I would highly recommend your services to others in a similar position. – Thanks again, Des
