We use tandem trailers as rubbish skips. We deliver the trailer skip to exactly where you want it, leave it with you to fill, and then when you have finished filling it,we return and take the trailer skip way; just like a standard skip.
These skips are great for household/garage/yard cleanups, garden prunings, garage sale reminants, moving house clean outs, bathroom/kitchen refits, shop fitouts etc.
We deliver and collect the skips seven days a week.
The skips are 2.4m x 1.5m (8’ x 5’) tandem trailers with high sides. They are less than 2100mm wide, which permits us to get down tight driveways, right up to your garage if you want. We are the tight access experts; battleaxe driveways and townhouse developments are our specialty!
Please advise if you need us to go into a building basement carpark, under a carport or into a garage, as we have a few low skips that can do this (2.1M total height).
The skips have rear opening doors for loading convenience.
Our trailers are registered, so can be legally parked on the road if required. We can park them on a naturestrip, but clients are responsible for any parking fines issued (we have not incurred a fine to-date. So long as the skip does not obscure vision of drivers, particularly backing onto the road, you should not have any issues).
Being a wheeled skip, our skips will not scratch your driveway and we do not use heavy trucks to collect them, further protecting your concrete from damage.
The trailers are very stable to load due to the jockey wheel and tandem wheels. They are fitted with hand brakes and we chock the wheels.We lock the trailers to prevent theft whilst left at your premises.
The trailers can take 2 tonnes (2000kgs), so can take some heavy materials (soil, bricks, concrete etc), but are not suited to a lot of this material. As a guide, 1m3 of soil/bricks etc is equal to approximately 2 tonnes, yet these skips can take a demolished bathroom or kitchen no problems. An average household load of general rubbish is about 650kg.
We recycle where possible. For loads with prunings, cardboard or metal, we suggest that these are put on top of the mixed load (when possible) so we can separate them for recycling. Computers, monitors,TV’s, microwaves, motor oil, gas cylinders, fire extingishers, paint and garden chemicals should preferably be left out of the skip (at front near draw bar) so we can put them into our tow vehicle for recycling, or left on top of the load.
Please do not place asbestos or fibre cement sheeting in the skip without talking to us first. We can take asbestos, but it needs to be seperated and appropriately wrapped.
The tip requires that all glass wool insulation be bagged (not placed in the skip loose).
We charge the same amount for our 6m3 skips as our 5m3 (if they are available at the time; book ahead to secure a 6m3 skip). For 5 and 6m3 skip orders, please note that we permit you to load up and over the top of the skip as much as you can fit on, so you can get another 1-2m3 on if you want.
For our 4m3 orders, we deliver a 5m3 skip with a 4m3 line marked in it. If you fill up to the 4m3 line, then that is all you are charged for. If you need extra capacity, then it is available for the small extra cost to the 5m3 skip fee.
We have rates for up to 3 or 7 days hire of the skip. If you require the skip for longer, a charge per extra week is applicable (if available). Any over weigh is charged based on weighbridge tickets.
Please note that damage to trailers whilst onsite is the resposibility of the hirer (except vandalism), and repair costs will be charged to the hirer. Clients are not to move skips, as they can be too heavy to move once loaded, so we may not be able to get them onto our tow vehicle.
