go to the booking form, and in the drop down list of available skip sizes, it'll tell you the price.

All the skip hire co.s I phoned for a Midi Skip were about the €200 mark.

I eventually went with A1 using their internet booking for about €170.

Yeah I've used A1 myself. They are not the cheapest but they deliver and collect on time. When you've a skip in the driveway, prompt collection and delivey is important.

. I decided to give them a try. The skip I order was a stadard at a cost of €295 which after pricing around i found to be the cheapest. The drivers were very professional and the services was as described.
I just like to thank all of the people I dealt with.
So if anyone is interested I would highly recomend them.

Must admit never heard of this company so would be interested to know, what range of skip sizes are available, and what areas are serviced.


€ 295 is definitely competitive but not cheapest. Also what happens when company are late with (a) delivery and/or (b) collection?
