Skip Hire Prices & Costs London

Skips come in a range of the sizes.  The larger the size – the more expensive the skip.  The most popular sizes are the 6 cubic yard and the 8 cubic yard skip (often referred to as ‘builder skips’). These are the skips you typically see in a London residential street.

The average hire price in London for a 6-yard skip is £265 (£221 + VAT) and for an 8-yard skip is £295 (£246 + VAT).  These prices are for skips located off the road (eg. in a driveway and the rates don’t tend to vary whether you hire the skip for a few days or for a couple of weeks.  This is because the main costs to the skip company are in the delivery, collection and disposal, and not the loan of the skip.

However, if you locate the skip on the road, you will need to pay extra for a skip permit and, if the area has controlled parking, a parking suspension as well.  These fees are imposed by the borough council to discourage skips from cluttering up their streets.  The average cost in London for a 7-day skip permit is £60.42. The average cost in London for a 7-day parking bay suspension is £217.

The table below shows how prices vary across London (inc.VAT) for hiring a 6-yard skip for mixed general waste for 7 days assuming the skip is located on-road with a parking suspension.
