National Skip Hire Prices Survey
The amount charged for hiring a skip can vary greatly depending on where you are in the country. A survey by our sister businesses skipandbin.com and loveskiphire.com shows the following average skip hire prices before VAT across the UK.
Average UK Skip Hire Prices
*4 and 12-yard prices ex. VAT. 6 and 8-yard prices inc. VAT.
Cheapest skip hire was Liverpool where you can expect to pay £178 (inc. VAT) for an 8-yard builder skip but the same sized skip in London will set you back £294 (inc. VAT). It may seem obvious that London skip hire prices should be higher to cover the extra costs of labour and congestion charges, but £116 seems an awful lot of extra! Equally, there are several other regions where the average price of an 8-yard skip is over £200 including Essex, Exeter, Luton and Southampton.
