Average Skip Hire Prices

8 November 2019

Every year we survey over 500 skip hire companies across the UK – not just the ones in the AnyJunk network – to see what they charge consumers for a skip.  From this, we produce average skip hire prices for cities in the UK. These rates are shown below for 6 cubic yard and 8 cubic yard skips – the two most common skip sizes – and commonly referred to as a ‘Builders skip’.  Rates include VAT but exclude the cost of a skip permit or parking bay suspension.  They are for general mixed waste.

The above table tells us that the average skip hire price across the UK is £226 for a 6-yard skip and £253 for an 8-yard skip. Based on our analysis, the cheapest cities to hire a skip appear to be Leeds, Edinburgh, Northampton and York. Unsurprisingly, London is at the other end of the scale and is more than 10% more expensive than the national average. The most expensive cities in the country are Bournemouth, Luton, Southampton, and Exeter (and also Croydon town, which isn’t a city, but seems to have crept in!).
