Additional Considerations When Hiring a Skip
Delivery and Siting
When hiring a skip near Durham, you will need to consider where it will be situated. For home delivery, our skips are all perfectly sized to fit on the average single driveway or parking space, roughly the same size as a family car.
With many local areas having roads with limited width or being built-up residential zones, we will need to understand what access routes are available. Typically, our skip delivery teams will need a 9ft wide entrance space to allow drop-off and collection.
Public Highway Permits
If you do not have a driveway, garden area or other private lands at your property, your skip will need to be situated on a road or public highway which requires permission from your local authority.
As authorised contractors for skip hire services in Durham, Fast Skips will arrange a permit from Durham County Council on your behalf. For commercial purposes, we provide similar support.
