Skip hire prices – the overall cost of waste removal services?
The act of transporting rubbish to the dump can become tiresome at times. Hiring a skip makes more sense. Having a skip delivered makes sense in some situations, such as completely renovating a house.
You don’t need to do much hard work other than filling a skip. To keep your skip hire cost low, you need to keep a few tricks of the trade in mind. Skip hire is an affordable way to dispose of trash and a convenient way to get rid of unwanted waste. Skip hire in the UK can range in price depending on a number of factors, which is why we have compiled our comprehensive skip hire cost guide.
The main use for the 2-3 yard mini skip is for small jobs in your home. If you feel as though you will not be throwing away too much waste, or you are redecorating a small room, then the 2 yard mini skip may be the perfect solution for you. This type of skip is also good to use alongside a larger skip to load specific materials such as metal or plasterboard.
For cheap rubbish removal, two-yard skips are the ideal solution. This type of skip is perfect for getting rid of small amounts of trash; it’s commonly known as “mini skips.” Most people prefer to use mini skips when they are clearing their gardens, making minor home improvements or dealing with household waste. Throughout the UK, 2 yard skips are the smallest skip available for hire, and skip hire prices depend heavily on the size of the skip. A 2-yard skip will typically cost between £150 – £250 depending on other factors including the hire period.
Price range – From £60 upwards
Capacity – Minimum 25 black bins bags
The 4-5 yard midi skip is a slightly bigger version of the 3-4 yard mini skip and holds marginally more waste. If you are redecorating a somewhat larger room and you are not sure the mini skip will have enough, upgrade to the 4-5 yard midi skip.
4-yard skips are easy to load because of their low level and can be squeezed into tight spaces for more effortless loading. Our team is always available to answer any questions you may have about access.
Four-yard skips, sometimes called midi skips, are ideal for renovating homes, remodelling kitchens and bathrooms, or just clearing out gardens on a seasonal basis. Objects of moderate size can be easily stored here, such as bicycles, small refrigerators, TVs, and small sofas and chairs.
If you are only putting in soil and stone or hardcore, we offer a reduced rate on our 4 Yard Skip.
Price range – Prices start from £85 upwards
Capacity – Approximately 45-50 bins bags
A 6 yard skip is the more common choice for medium to larger house renovations or house & garden clearances. The 6 yard skip is the most preferred choice of skip for home owners who have plans to develop their property to make more room.
Every client has different needs, so companies offer a variety of skip sizes and shapes for hire.
Skip companies like Cheap Skips do not offer a 6-yard unit, but instead encourage their customers to choose the larger 8-yard unit, which may not be the best option for their needs. Cheap Skips offers a 6 yard unit for trash of any size, including yard waste, domestic rubbish, and general garbage.
We can set up your 6-yard skip anywhere near your property if you wish. If needed, Cheap Skips can assist with obtaining a municipal permit. Cheap Skips’s six-yard skip is also suitable for removing industrial waste and demolition debris.
Price range – Prices start from £105 upwards
Capacity – Approximately 60-65 bins bags
The 8 yard skip is also a popular choice for home owners and also smaller construction yards who are having a little work done to their property. An 8 yard skip has multiple uses and is also a more popular choice of skip alongside the 6 yard skip.
There is enough waste for 70 to 80 large black bin bags in 8 yard skips, or around 25 wheelie bins. There are many uses for a skip in 8 Yards, such as builders waste, household waste, and various general materials.
We can also provide skips in other sizes. Due to its large size, hiring our 8-yard skip is a sure-fire cost-effective and convenient way to dispose of large amounts of waste within a short period of time. In the construction or building industry, 8 yard skips are often chosen due to their large size and appearance.
It is necessary to obtain a permit from your local council if you wish to place an 8 yard skip along a public street. Approximately 70 black bin bags of trash can be stored in an 8 yard skip.
Price range – Prices start from £150 upwards
Capacity – Approximately 75-80+ bins bags
A 10 yard skip is probably too big for most home projects, unless you own a big home, then you tend to find these skips more for commercial and construction uses, where buildings are much bigger and renovations use more materials and there is more waste.
This is best suited for large-scale building projects or the disposal of mixed waste. The maximum amount of soil/hardcore is 50%. When you have a lot of waste to dispose of, 10-yard skips are the way to go.
Despite their versatility, they are still widely used for both domestic and commercial purposes. In addition to home improvements, they can also be used for building and commercial work. There are also larger skips called maxi skips.
10 yard skips are commonly used for office clean-outs and shop fittings. Items that are not too heavy can be placed in them. As our lorries can only handle a maximum of 8 tonnes of waste, they are not suitable for carrying heavy materials such as soil and stone. A 10-yard skip could hold 8 tonnes of material, so an 8-yard skip could be used.
Price range – Prices start from £175 upwards
Capacity – Approximately 95-100+ bins bags
The 12 yard skip is a more preferred choice when it comes to construction projects due to their high capacity for waste materials such as metal, plasterboard, timber and much more. You will see this size skip on quite a lot of construction yards.
12 yard skips are among the most widely used skips. Many commercial projects involve bulky items and general construction waste, making them a popular choice for large projects. Additionally, domestic projects that generate a great deal of waste can benefit from them. Heavy items like stones and soil should not be placed in them. For larger jobs such as clearance of entire offices or homes, or any other commercial project, the 12 yard jumbo skip is perfect for you.
Approximately 120 bin liners can be disposed of in a 12 yard skip. In addition to having the capacity to hold waste in large quantities, 12 yard skips are popular with builders and shop fitters. 12-yard skips are commonly used on commercial sites and for larger jobs. They can also be hired for domestic projects where a lot of waste needs to be disposed of, but are mainly employed for commercial undertakings.
Skip hire prices often vary in different parts of the UK for a variety of reasons, including the degree of competition between providers and the type of waste you need to dispose of. It costs about £190 to £240 to rent a 12-yard skip.
Price range – Prices start from £200 upwards
Capacity – Approximately 120+ bins bags
A 14 yard skip is also a common skip size for commercial and construction projects and can hold a high capacity of waste materials from any renovation projects that you have planned.
A 14 yard skip is designed to hold light materials, just like a 10 yard skip and a 12 yard skip. For clearing large household items and undertaking construction projects, these skips are ideal. The 14-yard skip might be the ideal solution if you are looking to remove bulky, yet light items. This skip is not suitable for heavy materials, such as earth or concrete (the largest skip size for these materials is the 8-yard skip).
You can fit approximately 200 to 220 bin bags of waste in the bag. Whenever you are uncertain about the amount of space you will need, go for a 14-yard skip.
Price range – Prices start from £220 upwards
Capacity – Approximately 140+ bins bags
The 16 yard skip is ideal for the more larger commercial and construction projects due to their excellent value and capacity. These types of skips hold quite a lot of different waste materials and provide exceptional space.
Skips of 16 yards are ideal for handling substantial amounts of waste. Commercial and industrial sites with light and bulky waste are popular places to use large skips. For example, shopfitting and construction sites. Domestic clients can also hire them for large projects, such as renovations of entire houses. Unsuitable for storing soil and stones.
We consider our 16 Yard Skip a Maxi Skip, as it is on the same level with 10 Yard Skip, 16 Yard Skip, and 20 Yard Skip. The skip is large enough to store a lot of bulky items. The skip isn’t recommended for just hardcore customers. No more than 8 tonnes can be disposed of regardless of skip size, or else our trucks will overburden.
Price range – Prices start from £230 upwards

One of the bigger skips before the roll-on roll-off skip sizes is the 18 yard skip. It has considerable space to hold quite a lot of waste materials and is an affordable solution for most commercial and construction projects.
