Budget Skips Direct provide economical skip hire with exceptional service.

We pride ourselves on a quality, reliable, friendly skip hire service. To see if we cover your area type in your postcode above.

We supply skips for the smallest job (our mini skip measures 2 cubic yards, the equivalent of between 20 and 30 bin bags) to projects that require something much bigger (our largest maxi skip measures 16 cubic yards and is usually used for substantial house clearances) as well as most sizes in between.

If you are unsure what size skip you may need then either visit our handy skip size guide or give us a call on 0330 1130 700 and one of our friendly team will be only too happy to help.

As well as providing a great price on skip hire we can offer you a fast delivery and collection service, which in some cases (where a skip is ordered before 11am and is to be situated on a driveway) can be same day. To ensure an all-round service we can also provide road permits where required (additional charge applies).

Top FAQs

Will a lorry fit in my driveway?

We need around 11ft of width to allow our skip lorries to deliver a skip on your driveway. Our vehicles also need room to turn, allowing our drivers to backup the lorry onto your driveway or other private land.

If a skip is ordered and our drivers find that there is not sufficent space to place the skip, then a wasted journey charge may be applied.

Can you guarantee a delivery time?

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee or specify a particular time for delivery. Unforseen circumstances such as heavy traffic and roadworks, vehicle maintenance issues or general delays means that we cannot guarantee a particular time for delivery.

We do however offer either a AM or PM delivery preference. Again, we try our upmost to deliver within a selected period however as above unforeseen delays can affect our delivery service.

Please note that AM deliveries can be between 7:30am and 12pm and PM deliveries thereafter up until 5pm.
