Skip Hire in Carlisle

Our aim is to make the skip hire process as simple as possible; therefore we have an online ordering system, allowing 24-7 ordering. If there is anything you are unsure of, or you would like to discuss your skip hire requirements with a person then call us on 01228 516171.

Trotters Skips understand that each of our customers have different needs and we aim to provide a flexible service. This means we have 5 different skip sizes available (and a handy skip size guide). We deliver your skip on your preferred date, where possible, and our collection service is efficient, ensuring the skip is removed from your premises as soon as requested.

So this professional and efficient service must come at a high price… actually, Trotters Skips are excellent value for money. We can’t guarantee to be the cheapest skip hire in Carlisle, but if you have a cheaper like-for-like quote then call our team and we’ll see what we can do.

We also offer Trade accounts for building contractors and businesses within the Carlisle area. Complete the Trade form, or call us, to open an account.

Our website includes a wealth of other information, along with FAQs. If there is anything you are unsure about then call our friendly team and we will provide advice where necessary. If you intend to place a skip on the road, or grass verge then a permit is required from Carlisle City Council. This may take 3 working days to obtain and will cost £25, but we will be happy to organise this on your behalf.

Finally, rest assured that as a Carlisle based company, we care about our local surroundings. Therefore, recycling is important to us and Trotters Skips aim to reduce the amount of waste that goes into landfill.

Skip Hire Advice & Help

Our online ordering process is designed to make hiring a skip as easy as possible. If you have any questions, read our FAQs, or feel free to speak to our team, or email us, for a bit of extra advice.

Skips cannot be placed on roads or verges without the appropriate permit from a local authority.

Trotters Skips are happy to organise road-side permits on your behalf.

In England, it takes 3 working days to obtain a road-side permit and costs £25.

In Scotland, it takes 14 working days to obtain a permit, but they are free.

Please bear this in mind when booking a skip and advise our team if a permit will be needed, or if there are any potential access issues with placing a skip on your land (such as limited space in gateways, narrow lanes).
