We provide skips to private and commercial customers and building contractors throughout Mayo and Sligo.

We provide standard open skips but can also supply closed skips with lids. These skips may suit customers in urban areas who can lock the skip when it isn’t in use, preventing any unauthorised use.

Skips can only be filled up as far as a level load. For Health & Safety reasons overloaded skips cannot be lifted. Skips are hired out for 12 days. Payment is due when the skip is dropped. Our Drivers will take cheque or cash or call our office to pay with credit card. The Hirer accept full responsibility for the skip once delivered. The skip must be returned in the same condition as when it was hired first.

We can provide customers with skips in the following range of sizes:
