How long before my skip is delivered

Depending on your location, and when the skip is ordered we can usually deliver your skip at 24 hours notice, but in most cases we aim to deliver the same day. If the skip is to be placed on a public highway you will need a council permit. Local council permits usually take 24 hours to obtain, but could take longer depending on the council. With most councils Permits are valid for a period of 28 days.
