Most of our residential skip hire orders are positioned in gardens or on driveways, so a permit is not required. If, however, you hire a skip that will be placed on a public road then you are legally required to have a skip hire permit. Farwell’s can arrange this for you, with minimum stress and disruption. Please note that it can take up to 5 working days for a permit to be processed, so keep this in mind when planning your project.


At Farwell’s, we know that it is not always practical for you to have a skip on site, and with our convenient wait and load service we offer the perfect solution. Our skip hire lorry allows you to dispose of your waste in a short space of time and then takes it away it a quick and responsible manner.


If you don’t want the hassle of loading a skip yourself or want to get rid of your waste in a hurry, then we can save you the trouble with our grab lorry hire service. Taking care of it all, our grab hire lorries offer the perfect solution for the fast removal of your waste and are a low-cost alternative to other methods. Available to both commercial and residential customers, contact Farwell’s for more information.

If you’re unsure about what size of skip you may require or need advice on what you can put in it please take a look at our FAQ’s below:
Generally, you can hire one of our skips for 1 – 2 weeks but we can accommodate longer hiring periods depending on your individual requirements. Please remember that if you’re placing your skip on a public highway you will need us to arrange a permit for you. As we are fully licensed and registered waste carriers with the council we can do this on your behalf.
We recommend booking your skip in advance as we may need to apply for a permit. If the skip is going on private property we can sometimes provide same day or next day delivery, depending on availability and time of booking. We can provide you with an AM or PM slot and someone will need to be in to accept delivery.
If placing the skip on a public road then you will need a permit. We need up to 7 days to arrange this from the local authority. Most skip hire permits are valid for up to 2 weeks but can be extended for an additional cost.
When filling your skip, you should be mindful of what you are putting in it as there are certain items which you can’t put in it. This includes food and animal waste, liquids, electrical goods (TV’s fridges etc), plasterboard, asbestos, batteries, tins of paint, tyres, medical waste, gas cylinders, solvents and fuels. You can dispose of soil and rubble in our skips but we need to be notified at time of booking due to the weight.


We deliver skips across a wide area from our site in the New Forest. Please see our coverage map below. Don’t worry if your location is not listed, this doesn’t necessarily mean we won’t deliver a skip to you. Please call the office for advice and for an instant quote over the phone.
