Skip Hire

Skip hire is our core service. It is what we do – day in, day out.

For over 11 years, we have provided efficient and economic waste solutions for a broad range of customers on a UK nationwide basis.

Our waste management division encompasses all aspects of waste handling from basic skip hire through to hazardous waste processing. Our  ‘zero waste’ philosophy, underlines our green credentials and our commitment to reuse, recycle and salvage your waste, wherever and whenever feasible. This approach ensures that we significantly reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill and incineration which will in turn reduce your waste bill.

It is our duty to ensure that all waste removed from sites complies with Environment Agency regulations.

We operate primarily in the construction industry providing a nationwide skip hire service to the following sectors:

  • building
  • civil engineering
  • shopfitting
  • roofing
  • house building
  • building maintenance & refurbishment

Our nationwide skip hire service also extends to utility companies, manufacturing, retail outlets, and the licensed trade.

In certain circumstances, you may wish to place a skip on a public highway. In order to do this, you will need to have a skip permit in place, prior to doing so. Equip Logistics Ltd will take care of these arrangements when necessary. For further information visit Hiring a skip and using it safely. Alongside this service, we have a production facility that manufactures the market leader in rechargeable skip lights for purchase by private skip hire companies and local authorities. For further information visit Rechargeable Skip Lights.

We supply skips in variety of shapes and sizes, from the traditional chain-lift builders skip for the construction industry and domestic user, through to large Roll on Roll Off containers (RORO’s) for larger more specialised projects. We can also provide a range of specialist commercial skips for the manufacturing sector and retail outlets known as Rear End Loaders (REL’s), Front End Loaders (FEL’s) and Wheeled Euro Bins. We also cater for larger construction sites that require certified cranable skips tested to minimum safe working loads for the movement of waste skips and materials around site by crane. Concrete washout skips are another type of waste skip we  provide which can be used as a quick and simple temporary concrete washout facility for washing out concrete and slurry wastes from concrete lorries and concrete pumps.

Skip and RORO containers offer the following:

  • an extensive range of sizes from a 2 cubic yard skip  to a 50 cubic yard RORO container
  • ideal for cumbersome and bulky waste
  • quick delivery and turnaround
  • low-sided containers for heavy materials, such as soil, clay, hardcore and demolition waste
