Cost of permit.

Here at A1 Skip Hire, we aim to keep the costs low and often this means for us to obtain the permit on your behalf. The cost of the permit will be dependent on the length of time you hire the skip for. A permit can be obtained for as little as 1 day and as long as 4 weeks.

In order to get the best value for money, we recommend you obtain any paperwork well in advance, otherwise, you’ll be faced with additional fees.

Safe waste disposal.

When it comes to Chorley skip hire, our skips are available in sizes from 2-cubic yards right up to 16-cubic yards. No matter which size skip you require, by no means should they be contaminated.

Any skips that have dangerous materials in will pose threat to those on your premises and also the driver of the fleet, so please think carefully before you throw any hazardous waste into your skip!

Keep your skip visible at night.

Once the skip is in your possession, you’re held responsible for it. If you’ve already decided that you want to keep your skip on the road, you’ll need to attain a permit that allows you to leave your skip on the road safely.

A skip that’s on the road will need to be well-lit for car drivers and pedestrians to see in the dark, preventing any accidents or collisions! A1 Skip Hire can provide you with the skip hire, but you’ll need to get hold of some safety lights and markings.

Keep your premises clean.

Maintaining standards should always be a priority. If you need to remove any rubble, soil or garden waste, you’ll benefit from one of our 8 yard maxi skip which includes a drop down door making it a suitable option for waste that can make a mess!

We can help you to keep your waste to a minimum, in one place rather than cluttering up your driveway or overflowing on to the road.
