How long do you keep a hired skip?

When planning a project that will produce large amounts of waste it is important to consider how this waste is going to be disposed of. A common and practical solution is to hire a skip; it saves you from frequent journeys to the local tip and means that professionals will dispose of your waste in accordance with any relevant regulations. At this point you may have further questions – where can I find skip hire near me? What size of skip will I need? How long can you keep a hired skip?

The answers to these questions will depend upon your needs and the specifics of your project, such as the amount of waste that you are going to need to be removed.

In terms of how long you can keep a hired skip, this can be flexible according to your needs. If you know that your removal project is going to be a quick job, then you can opt for a cost-effective service like our Load and Go. We’ll supply you with a driver and a van to get all your commercial or domestic waste onto one vehicle, in one day — you won’t even need to get a permit for the skip.

Whatever your needs, we guarantee that we can come up with an efficient solution for you. For instance, if you are working on a long term project but won’t be producing much waste, you might want to hire a smaller skip but for a greater amount of time. If you’re going to need to dispose of lots of waste quite quickly, you’ll want a larger skip for a shorter duration. Just give us a call to discuss your requirements.

If you require skip hire in Norwich, or in the wider Norfolk area, then we’re here to help. At AKS we have been hiring skips across Norwich and Norfolk since 2002 and we pride ourselves on being a reliable and affordable, family-fun skip hire business. We began with just one lorry but are now able to provide over 600 skips for use across the county and are completely dedicated to providing prompt and competitively priced service to every single one of our customers. There will be no hidden costs or additional charges that are not stated at the beginning of your hire and we will be happy to assist you in finding a waste disposal solution to fit your specific needs. We also aim to recycle as much waste as possible and dispose of everything well within the relevant government guidelines.

We offer a range of waste management options including, but not limited to, our standard skip hire. At AKS Skip Hire we offer skips in a range of sizes, starting at 2 cubic yards, which would be suitable for 20 – 30 bin bags, and ranging up to 12 cubic yards, which would comfortably hold up to 100 bin bags. Our skips are available for 7-day hire; multiple skips can be hired for successive 7-day periods in the instance of a slightly longer-lasting project.

In the instance of a much longer project, or for heavy commercial or industrial use, we also offer larger roll-on/roll-off (RORO) skips on both short-term and long-term hire. These skips are an ideal waste management situation for an environment where the day-to-day build-up of waste may be hard to manage, such as construction or demolition sites or for large commercial refits.

Furthermore, if you contact us with more specific needs regarding long-term skip hire we will be more than willing to be flexible on both time and duration and should be able to come to an agreement to suit your needs. We can be contacted by telephone on 01603 789 55 or by email at, as well as via our website.
