Skipandbin.com is the number one place to find cheap skip hire prices in London. We are a price comparison site for skip hire. We provide London skip hire companies and those in other major UK cities with a way of adjusting their skip prices instantaneously to suit demand. The idea is that when a skip company isn’t completely busy they can use skipandbin.com (which attracts thousands of visitors every day) to boost demand by temporarily dropping their skip hire rates. Some skip companies also use skipandbin.com to offer low rates for postcodes that are extremely near to their depot, because our system allows them to specify exactly which postcodes they want to cover. When you search, our database returns only those prices of skip companies that cover your postcode. Unlike online skip hire brokers, we don’t limit ourselves to a few local skip operators for each region (we look for hundreds!) and we do not add a mark-up to their prices. Our service is free for you to use and free for the skip hire company to list. That way you get the lowest rates available every day.
London skip permits
If your skip needs to be located on a public highway or pavement in London you will need a skip permit or the skip could be removed without notice by the council and you may be liable to a fine. The cost of a London skip permit varies by borough. Some councils charge more than £80 and others as little as £10. Depending on the London borough, you may not be able to apply direct to the council and instead the skip hire company applies on your behalf and then the London skip permit fee is added to the overall skip hire price. For more details about skip permits and to check London skip permit prices for your local borough visit our skip permits page.
Issues of hiring skips in London
In addition to expensive skip permits, London can be a bit of a nightmare for hiring skips. Red routes, double yellow lines, congestion zones, resident parking zones, narrow streets, limited parking spaces, tiny gardens, no space out front, pedestrian only zones, and local council byelaws – are just some of the many issues that people face when hiring a skip in London. As London’s traffic increases, the harder it becomes to use a skip in the Capital. If you just cannot face all the effort, you might like to consider our sister site, AnyJunk, the UK’s largest man & van rubbish clearance company. They send a team of two around in a large truck and clear all the waste while you wait. They charge by the cubic yard and no skip permit is required. Alternatively Love Skip Hire, the skip business operated by Anyjunk connects home-owners with the best skip hire in their London borough.
