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.
