Skip Sizes

Knowing the skip sizes you require is vital in making sure your job gets done smoothly and at the best possible price. The last thing you want is to order a skip that’s too small and end up overloading it or having to order another!
Skip hire costs in Barnsley vary depending on the size of the container and, in the case of roll on roll offs, the weight of the contents.

Call us on 01472 309784 or send us a message to discuss your requirement.

Here at Skip Hire Barnsley we have a complete selection of skip sizes, from 4 cubic yard mini skips for those smaller quantities of household and garden waste, all the way up to 20-40 cubic yard roll-on-roll-off containers, for larger building or renovation projects…and everything in between – see our guide below to help you choose the right skip size for your project.
For more substantial requirements, such as industrial demolition, site clearance, basement excavation projects and aggregates, we can also offer 7.5-tonne and 32-tonne grab trucks (65 cubic yards) with long reach capacity.

Helping You Get The Skip you Need

If you have never hired a skip before in Barnsley you might find the hiring process a little daunting. Don’t worry about this, we can help you. We have a lot of experience when it comes to choosing the right size skip for our customers. We’ll ask you a few questions so we can determine how big the skip needs to be.

We usually advise that you hire a skip that’s a little bigger than your current needs. This is because some of your waste might be bigger and bulkier than you realise. We’ll advise you on what size skip we think you should have but we’ll leave the choice up to you.

Once your skip has arrived at your property we’ll confirm the pick-up time with you, you don’t have to be in for either delivery or collection, as long as you leave 2 contact numbers we can call you on delivery. This is to ensure we can make the smoothest delivery and collection as possible on the days. However, if you think you need the skip for a little longer than planned don’t hesitate to let us know.
