How do I hire a skip from Skip Hire Glasgow?

Especially for those who’ve never hired a skip before, here’s how it works...

Telephone us

Our quotation system is telephone-based, employing actual helpful & informed people. We’ve found that this is the best way to identify the most appropriate service to meet our clients’ needs. In order to obtain a skip hire quote simply call our number & one of our service team personnel will take down some details regarding your waste, the location & duration of the hire, all of which enables us to quote an accurate price (with no obligation). Should you then wish to hire, we can take convenient payment by card during the call & get your skip hire booked in.

On delivery date

On the booked date our transport team member will deliver the reserved skip to your given location & offload it into the on-site area you have set aside for it to go. Our regular hire duration is for a period of up to seven days but other durations are available upon request.


End of hire

Upon completion of your job or when you have loaded your skip to the maximum load line (i.e. it is full) then please telephone to inform us of this fact as it will enable us to schedule a skip uplift with our transport team. SHG makes best efforts to remove full skips promptly. If you’ve still got more waste to dispose of and need to hire another skip then let us know & we can exchange your full skip for a new one (additional hire charges apply).

We Are Here to Help

Irrespective of which type of customer you are, we can help you with any waste disposal dilemma. SHG knows that if you’ve never hired a skip before it can be a potentially confusing or daunting prospect and you will have many questions in your head as to just how the whole skip hire thing works. The Skip Hire Glasgow team members have had a myriad of questions, queries and dilemmas put to them during their years in the waste industry so we have collated the most popular of these (especially the general-type questions including “how do I hire a skip?”) as posed by new customers (plus our answers to them of course), and put them on this website’s FAQ page to offer you some guidance before you give us a call.

Waste collection service specialists

At Skip Hire Glasgow our policy is to offer a reliable, high quality waste collection service above all else. Some customers waste their valuable time telephoning a myriad of skip hire firms in search of the Holy Grail of skip hire at 1980’s prices but the reality of the “service” offered by silly price operators is more akin to the Spanish Inquisition i.e. a never-to-be-forgotten painful experience where no-one should expect delivery as promised, removal of full skips promptly or anything other than glorified fly-tipping…We have heard tales of such cowboy “companies” not turning up at all so leaving teams of workers standing about unable to work, leaving full skips uncollected for months at a time or illegal dumping of clients’ waste. We would urge you not to choose suspiciously cheap  firms as they are cheap for a reason; as well as damaging the environment they inflate all of our council tax bills and they can easily damage your business’s reputation with your client. SHG offers a competitively-priced  skip hire service but one that delivers (and collects!) on its promises, puts customer care first and always handles your waste in a responsible manner for the sake of the planet.


A critical component to ensure ongoing reliability and a consistently high standard of customer service is to engage the right people. The team members that make up SHG have extensive knowledge of and years of experience in the waste management industry. This means that when you pick up the telephone to us you are in good hands as our people know what it takes to deliver a skip hire service properly.
