Domestic Skip Hire in Southampton
Skip hire is perfect for household projects such as garden tidy-ups and landscaping, spring cleaning or house clearances, or for minor construction projects such as garage renovations or building extensions.
Having a skip on-hand to dispose of your waste takes away some headaches for you as no need for multiple trips to a local waste disposal facility, or a need to fill up your car with bags of rubbish! Whenever your work is going to produce a lot more waste than your wheelie bin can handle, skip hire can make the job much much easier.
Beyond all the time saved not making multiple round trips, you’ll also be able to guarantee that the waste being removed will be professionally handled. In fact, 98% of the waste Fast Skips remove in Southampton through skip hire is recycled.
Access and Permit Requirements
Before you hire a skip in Southampton, it’s important to think about access routes, where the skip will sit, and whether a council permit is needed.
In most cases skip hire around Southampton will require a 9ft wide entrance space for our delivery lorries to gain access.
All three of our commonly hired domestic skips are designed with a footprint sized perfectly to fit on most household driveways or gardens. If possible, these are the ideal placements for your skip hire to prevent the risk of blocking public access and removing the requirement to apply for council permitting.
If this is not available, our skips are designed to take up the same space as a single average car so can be situated roadside in an allocated car parking space or roadside. However, this will require you to receive a permit from Southampton City Council. As an authorised contractor for Southampton skip hire services, we will arrange this for you.
