If you hire a skip from Skoup and would like us to place it on a public road, you are required by law to have a skip permit. Don’t worry though with Skoup we make it easy for you.Simply select “public highway” when booking and we will automatically arrange a permit for you from your local council. Skip permits are chargeable and this cost will be added to your booking. Where lights and cones are provided, you are responsible for ensuring these are placed correctly for the duration of your service and not tampered or interfered with. Because permits can take several days to be obtained via your local county council, the earliest delivery date you will be able to select for your skip is in five days time.
Where a skip is booked with a permit, any cancellation made prior to receiving your skip will result in a charge for the permit fee and any costs we incur. When booking a skip with a permit the skip must be used wihtin the period of time the skip permit lasts for. You may extend this by getting in touch with Skoup who can then look to extend on your behalf.

If your skip is placed in a controlled parking zone (CPZ), usually a residents parking bay, pay & display space or metered parking space, you will be responsible for ensuring any fees are paid. Should any penalties arise as a result of non-payment of parking fees, you will be liable for this fine.
