Midi Skip Hire

Midi skips are slightly larger than the mini skips and can hold up to the equivalent of 40 filled bin liners. They tend to be used by people booking domestic skip hire rather than the larger builders skips.  See the side panel to your left for an illustration of the size of a midi skip, dimensions and the type of waste they are suitable for.

If the midi skip is to be placed on a public highway (partially or fully) we will need to apply for a skip permit on your behalf.  We aply for a skip hire permit online and can normally have an application completed the same day.  For the best prices we can offer in Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield, Streetly, Little Aston, West Bromwich & Sandwell, Solihull, Aldridge and surrounding parts of the West Midlands and Staffordshire please contact us on 0121 344 3000 so we can provide you with a free of charge, no obligation quotation.
