What is a 8 yard skip most suitable for?
Like the slightly smaller 6 yard, the 8 yard skip is very flexible and can be used on both domestic and commercial jobs. You may also see this type of skip referred to as a builders skip. 8 yard skips are also one of the more commonly booked types of skips and are popular with a wide range of customers. You won’t be able to place soil or rubble in any skips larger than this one. This is because it is easy to go over the weight limit with skips that have a larger capacity. Even with an 8 yard skip, you shouldn’t fill it exclusively with dense waste as you may go over your weight limit. Get in contact with us if you are unsure if you are hiring the right type of skip.

Everything you could want from a skip service
These guys saved me so much stress when my building project was delayed. Friendly, flexible and good value. Never thought I’d feel so enthused about a skip!
Excellent service at a competitive price. Dropped and collected skip when they said they would.
Driver called when he was close, arrived on time, and delivered skip as requested. Called again on his way to collect, although we were not present. All-round excellent.
