We also offer Trade accounts for building contractors and businesses within the Workington area. Complete the Trade form, or call us, to open an account. Our Trade Services also include aggregates delivery and brownfield site assessments and clearance.

For our domestic customers we work closely with Allerdale Borough Council, so if you need a road-side permit (which you will if you plan to leave a skip on the road, or verge) then we can help organise this on your behalf.

It will take 3 working days to process and cost £25, but it is a legal requirement and our assistance should help speed things up.

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).
