Skip Sizes

DS Skip Hire is one of the largest skip hire companies servicing South Essex and surrounding areas. We are a family owned business with more than 10 years of experience in the skip hire industry. Our company provides skips ranging from 2 to 12 yards in size. With reliable service, affordable prices, and great customer service, we are hard to beat!

What skip sizes are available?

We currently offer skips in seven different sizes, ranging from 2 yard through to 12 yard. To make it easier to choose the right skip, here is a bit more information about the ways each skip can be used:

2 Yards

2 Yard Skips

Measuring approximately 0.9m x 1.6m x 1.2m (HxLxW)*, this small skip is ideal for smaller commercial or residential jobs. It is perfect for small gardening jobs, house waste, or a small room renovation job. It is also a great choice if you are having a spring clean of your home and have a few items that you need to discard. Our 2 yard skips can hold up to 2 tonnes of rubbish. This is equivalent to 6 wheelie bins or 20 bin bags.

If you would like to book a 2 yard skip with us please give us a call on: 01268 856327 or alternatively click here to fill out a quick enquiry.

3 Yards

3 Yard Skips

This slightly larger skip is an excellent choice for larger garden jobs or for cleaning out a larger property (home or business). It holds about 50% more rubbish than a 2 yard skip, which is about 10 wheelie bins or 30 bin bags.

If you would like to book a 3 yard skip with us please give us a call on: 01268 856327 or alternatively click here to fill out a quick enquiry.

4 Yards

4 Yard Skips

Measuring approximately 1m x 2.3m x 1.5m (HxLxW)* a 4 yard skip is an excellent choice for bathroom renovations, kitchen renovations, and house clean outs. It is a popular choice with tradesmen, who can usually fit all of the rubbish from a small room renovation into this skip. It holds the equivalent of about 13 wheelie bins or 40 bin bags.

If you would like to book a 4 yard skip with us please give us a call on: 01268 856327 or alternatively click here to fill out a quick enquiry.

6 Yards

6 Yard Skips

This larger 1 x 3.4m x 1.7m skip (HxLxW)* is the most popular skip for use in the building trade. It has enough space to handle the rubbish from a larger room renovation or large house clean out. It is also ideal for garden projects where you will be creating a large amount of green waste. A 6 yard skip will hold about 19 wheelie bins or 60 bin bags. We also have a 6 yard skip with a drop door. The drop door makes it much easier to load heavier items into the skip.

10 Yards

8 Yard Skips

This 1.2m x 3.5m x 1.7m skip (HxLxW)* is the largest skip available for heavy waste like bricks and soil. It is ideal for large renovations like loft conversions and bathroom/kitchen renovations. It can hold approximately 25 wheelie bins or 80 bin bags.

If you would like to book an 8 yard skip with us please give us a call on: 01268 856327 or alternatively click here to fill out a quick enquiry.

12 Yards

The Drumshack

Called on a Saturday morning needing a skip that day in Hadleigh, I’d forgotten to order one in advance having travelled from another part of the country. I was advised to order a 10 yard skip which was perfect for the house clearance. Although the skip would normally have been delivered on the Monday Dave went out of his way to help and the skip was delivered as promised around lunchtime ready for our hard work to start! The cost was very reasonable, I had made a few online enquiries with other local companies which were more expensive than DS. The skip was collected Monday morning at my request as it was full! We could have had it for 7-10 days though if needed. Absolutely brilliant and efficient service, would highly recommend DS skip hire, thank you.
