While ordering your skip is simple, we want to make sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible, saving you from frustrations on the day of delivery and collection. To help you assess whether it’s possible for you to make use of a skip on your drive, road, lane or cul-de-sac, check out our access requirement guide.
Our Vehicle Sizes
We have two different vehicles which you might see arriving on your road, depending on the service we’re providing. There are Skip lorries, Roll-on roll-off lorries and Grab lorries, the dimensions of which you can see here.
|Reg. No.||Length||Width||Height||Back||Mirror to Mirror|
Be sure to check the vehicle for the service you need can fit on your road using these measurements – it can cause long delays if we cannot gain access on your road. If you think our vehicles won’t fit on your street, let us know and we’ll help you find a solution.
Remember: a normal skip lorry and a roll on roll off lorry will also require some additional space behind the vehicle to offload the skip. Please contact us for more information.
Road Size & Parked Cars
At certain times of the day you might think your road has enough space for our vehicles, but have you considered parked cars? One of the main reasons we fail to gain access is because there are parked cars making the road narrower.
Be sure that at the busiest time of the day, at the busiest point on your road, there is at least 3.5m of width for our vehicles to pass through. Whether this is further down your road or directly outside your house, if our vehicles can’t pass we can’t make the collection or delivery.
