Skip Hire

Skip Hire in Reading

If you wish to place a builders skip on any part of the public highway in Reading, you will need a permit (often referred to as a license) obtained on your behalf.

HIPPO can arrange this for you – costing £66 for a 14 day permit: the maximum length of Skip Hire permit in Reading.

Arranging permits can take up to 3 days and we will let you know as soon as it is granted and confirm the skip delivery date by email or telephone.

Reading Parking Suspensions

In addition to a skip permit, if you need to place a skip in a residential or pay and display parking bay, or a section of yellow line on the road, you will need to apply for a parking suspension/dispensation. Please check with your local authority, Reading Borough Council, as this is your responsibility to arrange.

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
accessible fill it to the brim, call HIPPO and it's collected. No fuss at all. Great thing is you can keep it up to 6 months and it carries
a lot of weight. Great service.

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.
