Which Size Skip is Right for My Project?

4-Yard Skip Hire

Equivalent in bin bags: 30-40

Maximum loading weight: 4 tons

This mini skip hire solution is most popular with DIY enthusiasts and residential clients, but it is also ordered by commercial customers looking for a cost-effective solution.

Due to its small size, it’s easy to fit a 4-yard skip on a driveway or in front of a house, but the skip is still large enough to hold plenty of rubbish. This is why 4-yard skip hire is an incredibly popular solution. It’s twice the size of a 2-yard skip and is often used for larger home renovation projects, such as landscaping a garden or clearing a small house. If you’ve been searching for ‘4-yard skip hire near me’, look no further than YardLink. We may even be able to get your skip to you on the very same day.

6-Yard Skip Hire

Equivalent in bin bags: 50-60

Maximum loading weight: 6 tons

6-yard skip hire is popular with both domestic and commercial customers. The size of the skip means that it can hold a large amount of soil or waste, so it’s ideal if you’re renovating a large garden, clearing a house or getting rid of bulky waste from your site.

8-Yard Skip Hire

Equivalent in bin bags: 60-80

Maximum loading weight: 8 tons

Commercial customers often enquire about our 8-yard skip hire solutions.

Due to its large size, an 8-yard skip is the ideal solution if you’re building an extension, extending into a loft or renovating the downstairs of someone’s home. It’s a cost-effective way of clearing large volumes of waste from your site and means that you can fit all of your waste in the same skip, so there’s no need for multiple trips.

10-Yard Skip Hire

Equivalent in bin bags: 80-100

Maximum loading weight: 8 tons

If you’re working on a large building or construction site, then 10-yard skip hire may be the best solution to your needs. It also works perfectly if you’re carrying out a large-scale renovation project for a client, such as a kitchen refit or a loft conversion where you’ll have a large amount of waste to clear.

12-Yard Skip Hire

Equivalent in bin bags: 100-120

Maximum loading weight: 8 tons

A 12-yard skip is perfect if you have a large amount of bulky construction waste that you need to clear from your site.

12-yard skip hire is particularly useful for people who are carrying out large-scale home remodels that require walls to be moved and houses to be reconfigured. This skip is also incredibly popular with shop fitters.

Do You Offer Roll On Roll Off Skips?

If you’re a construction manager who needs to dispose of a high volume of waste caused by demolition and construction projects, then consider a 20-yard roll on roll off skip or a 40-yard roll on roll off skip instead.

These skips require wider access and space on a site, but they can hold much more waste than a traditional skip can. Whether you have a major construction contract or are undertaking a large refit that will produce a high volume of waste throughout, a roll on roll off skip is perfect.
