Finding a reliable, convenient way to book skip hire in Ipswich can be tough. However, with HIPPO’s skip hire service, you can take all of the pain out of the process.

All you need to do is put your postcode into the online checker, which will allow you to choose a skip that perfectly suits you. The skips which we provide access to range from 6 to 12 tonnes in capacity, meaning they’re suitable for even large projects. Whether you’re a tradesman carrying out a full renovation, or just doing some much needed DIY throughout the house, HIPPO is ideal.

If you hire a skip in Ipswich and you need to put it on a public path or road (as opposed to private garden or driveway) you will need a skip permit through Suffolk County Council. The benefit of booking through HIPPO is that we take care of this admin for you.  We will factor this cost in for you clearly in your booking, so you can be absolutely sure of no hidden costs when you hire a skip with us.

HIPPO is your savvy choice for skip hire in Ipswich, not only because of the high level of customer service and wide range of options you get, but also the convenience and the ease of booking the service online 24/7.

Easy to order online the bag was delivered very quickly. The collection was prompt. I have used this service twice now and I am very
impressed, I will definitely use HIPPO again. The bags are great if you are limited on space and you can't fit a skip in.

I have used HIPPOBAGs to help me with household rubbish. Lovley concept..get a huge folded bag in the post put it some where

Bought a HIPPOBAG from B&Q

Bought a HIPPOBAG from B&Q. It is very easy to fill. Put it on the front drive. Collection was easily arranged and paid for
online. The collection was a couple of days after booking and didn't need anybody to be present. So easy. This is the
second time I have had a HIPPOBAG and I would use them again.
