On that note, the good news is that we can typically take care of that for you. When it comes to filing for permits, the majority of local
councils will only work with skip hire firms, so let us know if you don’t have enough room in your driveway and we’ll jump into action to
arrange a permit.

standardised procedure, although in the majority of cases, it is as simple as filling out a form on their website.

4. How Much Time Is Required To Obtain A Skip Permit?

Frequently, it takes at least three or four days to acquire your skip permit, so keep this in mind.As is the case with many other aspects of
permits, the specific duration varies according to your local council, so it’s essential to double-check during the application process.

The majority of council skip permits are good for one week to one month. You can renew them if you require them for an extended period

to adhere to the previously negotiated terms as closely as possible.

We’ll offer you a skip for two weeks and can transport it rather quickly after your booking is confirmed. As a result, it’s better to arrange for
the permission well in advance so that you’re not scrambling at the last minute. Bear in mind that the area designated for your skip must
