Caerphilly Skips have been providing a skip hire service to business and domestic users in the Cardiff and Newport area for many years and our expert operatives will be pleased to help you choose the right skip sizes for your particular job.

Unlike some skip hire companies, Caerphilly Skips actually own the skips they hire out, and have the experience and knowledge to know which skip size is required, whatever the task.

Mini Skips

This skip size is perfect for anyone carrying out small home improvement jobs or who has a garden to clear. The skips can take approx two cubic yards (approx. 1.53 cubic metres) and are small enough to fit on the average driveway, saving the cost of an on-road permit. Approximate sizes:

Midi Skips

The ideal size for those larger household renovation jobs or garden landscaping work where the Mini Skip would be just too small.
