Results of Skip and Bin's UK Skip Hire Prices Research

Released on: October 09, 2012, 12:05 pm

Industry: Construction
Skip and Bin (http://www.skipandbin.com), which is a UK skip hire price comparison website, have produced statistics relating to the average price for hiring a skip in the UK.
October 09, 2012, 12:05 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The data, provided by SkipandBin.com, is made up from average prices quoted in September 2012 from 3 or more skip hire companies in each area. The data is possibly the only up to date information on skip hire pricing in Britain.

Among the major findings in the data are:

Both the sizes of skips and prices vary considerably throughout the UK.

London is the most expensive area for all the various sizes of skip, including the most commonly used household skip, the 6 yard 'builders skip'. The average price in London to hire a 6 yard skip is 210, compared to only 135 in Nottingham. Nottingham is also the cheapest city anywhere in the UK regarding the 6 yard skip size.

Construction firms could make notable savings, because prices of 6 and 8 foot skips have a difference of less than than 20%. This suggests that construction companies would be better off by using an 8 foot skip.

Liverpool is the cheapest city overall for skip hire. The cheapest skip hire available was as little as 80.

For the 12 yard skip, Newcastle proved to be the cheapest city in the UK at 165. For the same size skip, London's price was almost double that of Newcastle skip hire , at 300.

Skip and Bin managing director Jason Mohr was not surprised at London being the most expensive place in which to hire a skip, and was sympathetic to the problems London skip hire companies face, including the high cost of skip permits. This, he believes, results in some people choosing to dispose of their rubbish illegally instead. Mr. Mohr was also surprised at the price differences of skip hire between cities such as Liverpool and Birmingham.

Anyjunk, which is a partner of Skip and Bin, produce an annual report on flytipping which can be downloaded from the anyjunk website.
