Skip sizes guide

Our skip sizes range from four to 12 cubic yards which provide a very cost-effective way to dispose of bulky waste including furniture and garden waste. For a skip that will be placed on the road, there will be an extra charge of £50.00 (per week) added for a permit from the council. If a permit is required, it takes 3 days to obtain permission from the local authority so factor this in when you’re planning the hire of your skip.

To help you decide which size skip would be best for you, please refer to our waste skip sizes guide pages. We’ve included skip sizes in yards and skip capacity m3 to give you a good idea of what will fit in each skip.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to hire a grab lorry in Canterbury?

To rent a grab lorry in Canterbury, the price depends on how long you need it and the amount of material, typically ranging from £180 to £450 per day or more.

For an accurate cost, contact TW Services. We'll ask about your waste type, volume, and site details, providing you with a customised quote.

Our quotes consider the size of the required skip, the frequency of collections and replacements, the type of waste to be collected, and the location. We don't provide a fixed price list because our aim is to offer you an accurate cost, taking all these factors into account.

Do you need a permit to hire a grab lorry?

Hiring a grab lorry has a significant advantage over a skip – you don't need a permit. Unlike skips, where you have to contact your local council for a permit, grab lorries don't require one.

This is because a skip, when placed on your site, might interfere with local traffic or cause disruptions. However, a grab lorry is mobile and loads much quicker, causing minimal disruption and eliminating the need for a permit.
