The Rabbit Skip Range
The Rabbit Skip Range
Rabbit supply domestic customers with a wide range of skips – from mini-skips suitable for garden waste up to industrial container-sized skips capable of dealing with large-scale demolitions. With the exception of our grab & tip lorry, all our skips are delivered to your site and collected when they are full or when you have finished with them.

All you need to know:
What size Skip do I need?
We describe the capacity of our skips either in cubic yards/metres or by the approximate number of plastic waste bags that each can hold. Be realistic when estimating how much waste you want to dispose of, since hiring a second skip can be far more costly than one big one!
Remember that all skips must be level-loaded so that they can be legally transported on the road.
For a more substantial collection, it might be worth considering a very large on-site container (please call for further information).
When it is not practical to have a skip on your site, we can offer our ‘Grab & Tip’ Service where you simply create a pile of waste and we come and grab the waste into a vehicle.
Where can the skips be placed?
Most customers have their skips placed on their driveway or land but remember that all of our skips are delivered on large vehicles.
For 6 yard to 12 yard, we normally require a minimum 2.9m (9ft 6in) clearance width.
For 2 yard to 4 yard , we normally require a minimum 1.9m (7ft 6in) clearance width.
Also remember that we need good height clearance and a solid robust surface as our vehicles are heavy, especially when picking up loaded skips as we can’t be held responsible for cracking or sinking into driveways.
If you are unsure, please contact us on 01903 762020 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I can't have the skip off road, can it go on the highway?
Where it is not possible to have a skip on your own property, skips can be legally placed on the public highway or on a verge. However, skips placed on a public highway must have a pre-applied Highway Permit from the County or City Council Authority and must have the correct signage and lights (not supplied by Rabbit). These permits are applied for and issued to the skip hire company. (The grass verge outside your house may not be owned by you and therefore you may need a permit, but councils do not normally allow skips on grass verges.) Please allow at least four working days for a road permit to be granted.
If you require a skip to be delivered on the road in an area where there are parking bays, pay to park, or residents parking permits then an additional permission is required, in the form of a bay suspension – THIS HAS TO BE SOUGHT BY THE HIRER FROM THE LOCAL COUNCIL AS THESE WILL NOT BE ISSUED TO THE SKIP COMPANY. Parking bay suspensions can normally be made on-line to the local council, or via the Town Hall or Parking Shop. We will need the bay suspension number prior to being able to deliver a skip into a bay or restricted area. We cannot deliver the skip before the permit has been granted, and parking bay suspension issued if necessary.
If you live in the Worthing and Adur Council area visit their parking pages for further information.
If you live in the Brighton & Hove City Council area find out more about their parking suspension here.

How long can I keep the skip?
Most customers fill their skips quite quickly, but we look at a maximum 2 week hire – remember if the skip is on the highway there may be time restrictions on the Highway Permit.
What happens if I overload the skip?
The capacity of a skip is based upon a load that is level with the sides. Please don’t stack it up or overload it, as we reserve the right to refuse to collect overloaded skips.
What if I fill the skip and need it replaced with another empty one?
This would need to be booked through our office at the moment, so please call 01903 762020 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Do I have to call the office to get the skip collected when I have finished loading it?
You can either call our office on 01903 762020 or e-mail email@example.com, giving the site address.
What if I need to call the office?
