How Long Can I Keep A Skip For?

If you decide to hire a skip for a residential or commercial project, you can keep it off road, on your own premises (such as your driveway, for instance), without requiring a permit. Would you like to know the duration of time you can keep a container for? If you have a sizeable project and believe it will take some time to complete, you may wish to be informed on container hire duration. In our article below, we will explore the limits of skip permits and provide information about our services.

General Terms For Skip Hire

In most circumstances, you will have the option to hire a container for around four weeks at a time. This duration can be prolonged, though it should be agreed upon initially. Some skip companies would not be comfortable with hiring out one of their skips for months at a time. We are always willing to talk about terms that suit our clients’ particular needs. Though, it is important to keep in mind that, if you have put your container on a public road, your skip permit may not suit your hire duration.

Certain councils allow you to acquire a skip permit on a rolling weekly basis, renewing as is necessary. Some councils have rigid time frames, demanding that you define the container hire length, inhibiting you from exceeding it. If you opt to book a container from our company, we can take the hassle of arranging a skip permit away from you – simply give our team a call.

Are There Any Limits To Off Road Skip Hire Durations?

Many skip hire companies would want to avoid a situation where all their skips are hired out for a long period of time. However, we always try to agree on an appropriate hire term with our clients based on their particular requirements. It is one of our responsibilities to ensure that communities do not harbour excess waste. So, we make rules to maintain safe and tidy environments. We offer an efficient service and have a large supply of skips in several sizes to meet your project requirements.
