Domestic Skips

Collins Skip Hire has been a key player in the skip hire market across Suffolk and Essex for many years. We provide a cost effective, reliable and efficient service, with next day delivery during the week. Our four operational centres located across the region ensure we are always local to you!

We have skips to suit every job – whether for domestic use or major commercial projects. They range in size from 3 to 40 cubic yards – our handy dimensions chart will help to find the right one for you. If you are unsure which size would be best, please call a member of our experienced team for advice.

Useful tips

  • An 6 yard skip is the maximum size for soil/hardcore due to legal weight restrictions (7.5 tonnes).
  • Roll-on containers require large areas and are almost always for commercial sites.
  • Only fill the skip to a level load – otherwise the driver might refuse to take an overloaded skip.
  • We take a wide range of waste although some are not permitted such as liquids and those regarded as hazardous. These need to be handled differently and will involve an extra cost.
  • Think about where you are putting the skip and whether overhead wires, low branches and manhole covers might pose an access problem.
  • Please be aware that traffic at peak periods can have an impact on delivery times.
  • If we can’t drop the skip within the grounds of your property then it will be placed at the nearest roadside location. In this case the skip will require lighting and a permit from the local council. Please call us for any help and advice.
