Q. I want the skip to go on my drive. how much space do I need?
A. For householders correct positioning is the key. A skip needs to allow for a 9 ft entrance and is up to 12ft long. Most drives are suitable but thought should be taken to the quality of the surface. Lorries can be heavy! If you do not possess a drive or cannot get it on your existing one you might need to consider the road. A permit is required for a skip on a public highway, which we can organise for you.
