Why use an NWH GROUP skip?

Not only is a hire skip the simplest and most effective way of storing waste, but you also don’t have to worry about what you’ll do with the waste once you’re done. Simply load your skip as you work and once you’re finished, we’ll pick it up and responsibly dispose of any contained waste.

There’s no specific time frame you have to choose, so you can hire our skips for exactly as long as you need - a great value prospect for the majority of our customers’ requirements.

The whole process can be tailored to your needs, and our easy order process means you can have a local skip outside your door in as little as 24 hours from your order placement.
