Skip Permit in Wigan

In Wigan, 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 if you have any specific questions regarding your skip placement. So, for all of your skip hire needs in Wigan, let HIPPO do the work for you!

Any works on the public highway involving either a road closure or prohibition to traffic will require a Temporary Traffic Regulation Order (TTRO) - More information can be found here.
