Tips For Hiring a Skip in Bristol and Bath

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about skip hire and waste disposal that we think you might find useful.

Access Issues

Do you have access issues? We operate small vehicles within our fleet and can regularly resolve these issues for you. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

On road skips

Can’t get your skip on private property? No problem, we can organise councils road permits for you. The cost of road permits varies slightly depending on which council the address comes under. Contact us for more advice.

Wait and load service

If the additional fee of a road permit is not something that you are happy to pay, don’t worry, Bateman Skips Ltd are more than happy to offer our customers a wait and load service in Bristol, Bath and surrounding areas where the driver will wait while the skip is loaded. 30 minutes waiting time is included in the cost of skip hire free of charge!

Easy ways to pay

Busy life and can’t wait in for the delivery? No worries, we accept card payments online or over the phone meaning you don’t have to wait around. The driver can just turn up and drop the skip ready for when you need it.

Length of hire

Typical English weather prolonging the job? Don’t worry, our skips are normally hired for a two week period, however, we are very flexible and willing to negotiate the time period if needed.
