Skoup’s van removal service is a fast, cost-effective and hassle-free way to dispose of unwanted items and is often a cheaper alternative to a skip. But how much stuff can you actually fit into a van? 

Many of us when undertaking, what seems like a big clearance project, will opt for a skip because they have certain benefits, such as: 

  • They can be hired for extended periods 
  • They can be filled with heavier materials like rubble  

However, if you’re looking to clear out your loft, garage, garden or even having your kitchen refitted a van might be a cheaper and more efficient alternative to a skip. Here’s why: 

  • A van can remove most types of waste including furniture, mattresses, wooden cabinets, fixtures and fittings, bric-a-brac, garden waste, water-based paint cans and electrical waste. View our full list of accepted items
  • Our helpful drivers will load everything onto the van for you so there’s no need for heavy lifting. Due to COVID-19, we ask customers to leave items in an accessible area outside of their premises as we will not be entering homes/businesses during this time. We are also unable to guarantee a two-man crew therefor removal of some larger items may be restricted. 
  • Unwanted items can be collected and removed on the same day.  
  • Our quarter van service can be completed in as little as 15 minutes! 
  • Van prices start from just £75 and our full van collection could save you on average £89 compared to a 12-yard skip. 

If you think a van collection service is the best option for you, book your slot online. If you need a little more information on what size van is right for your clear out, keep reading. 

We’ve created a few common household and business scenarios to show you the right size collection and avoid any disappointment on the day.

If at any point during the collection your items have filled the space booked, our helpful team will assist you in arranging a larger service, based on availability. Simply pay the difference.
If you booked a half/full van collection but your items only filled a quarter/half van or less then we will refund you the difference in price. Either way you always get the best deal with Skoup!
