Skip Permit in Colchester

In many areas, when a skip is placed on a public road, the local authority requires a skip permit to be purchased. If you think you will be placing your skip on the road, and you believe you need a skip permit, just tick the box during checkout to add it to your order and HIPPO will arrange this for you. We’d advise checking with your local authority to check whether this applies to you. So, for all of your skip hire needs in Colchester, let HIPPO do the work for you!

Colchester Parking Suspensions

When positioning a skip on a public road you may require a parking suspension to be put in place – This allows a parking space or area of the road to be reserved to ensure that when your skip arrives, it can positioned conveniently for you. To find out more about parking suspensions in Colchester, get in touch with your local authority.
