Skip Hire Confirmation

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the important stuff…

Thank you

Thank you for ordering with The Orange Skip Company. Can we just take two minutes of your time to walk you through some important information prior to your delivery?


18 tonne lorry - the orange skip company

When we come to deliver your skip the vehicle will be an 18 ton lorry.

We use large lorries to allow us to pick up the heavy large skips easily. Please can you make sure that your driveway is suitable for the weight of the lorry and load.

Also please when booking make sure you tell our team about any of the following:

  • Width of gates
  • Overhanging trees/wires
  • Telegraph poles
  • Block paving
  • And my drivers’ favourite – manhole covers/drains


Skip Safety

Please DO NOT load your skip like these!

Please note that overloaded skips cannot be moved as we don’t want to head to the yard leaving a trail of rubbish. We can only take what we have been paid for. We must be able to get the appropriate size skip net over your skip. If you find yourself with extra rubbish please call us before you start playing rubbish jenga!
