Over the years, R Collard has delivered a complete range of skips to homes, businesses and construction sites. Our larger skips are extremely popular for large projects, due to their resilience, convenience and ability to handle most kinds of waste. If you’re looking for reliable 12-yard skip hire, or ‘jumbo skip’ hire as it is sometimes to known, get in touch today!
12-yard skips can hold around 120 bin bags of waste. That means they’re perfect for large clear-out projects, including complete property renovations or construction work. These large skips can tackle almost any kind of household waste, including most metals, plastics and wood. Thanks to their size and resilience, these jumbo skips are popular for shop fitters, builders, construction workers and large property clear-outs.
12-yard skips are a great way of dealing with almost any kind of waste. However, they do have their limitations. These skips cannot be used, for example, for heavy aggregates such as soil, rubble and concrete. The accumulated weight of these aggregates makes the skip too heavy to safely lift. If you need to remove aggregates like soil or rubble, a smaller skip is a safer and more convenient choice.
Thanks to our team’s commitment to environmental friendliness, we work to dispose of your waste in the eco-friendliest manner possible. If you want an environmentally responsible team of experts to carry out your 12-yard skip hire, get in touch with R Collard today.
Collard is proud to have one of the largest and most comprehensive stock and range of skips and roro’s in the South of England, ranging from 4 to 40 yards. The most popular skips for domestic customers range from 4yd to 8yd.
