Skip It FAQs

Can I Skip It?

If you are planning a clear out or renovations, Skips are fantastic tools for getting rid of unwanted rubbish, rubble, and waste. When you book your skip through Skoup, you can be assured that our skip hire is the quickest way to get rid of:

  • Bulky furniture
  • Wood
  • Metal
  • Dry Mixed Recycling (DMR)
  • Green waste

Our skips come in a variety of different sizes to ensure that they can store whatever it is you want to get rid of.

If the waste you want to get rid of is not included in our list of materials our skips can be used to remove, then there may be another solution better suited to your needs. At Skoup, as well as skip service, we provide Van It - a Man with a Van, style rubbish and bulky waste removal. We are able to accept a broader range of items and material types through our Van It service. 

You can have a look at our man-with-a-van service to see if that's more suitable for your needs. You can have a look at our man-with-a-van service to see if that's more suitable for your needs.
