Skip hire in Somerset | AMS News

Our skips are now available in Somerset

We are excited to announce that AMS is now offering our skip hire in Somerset. Whether you are a business or individual needing to dispose of waste, our skip hire is affordable and stress-free.

What size skips are available?

From our skip hire service in Somerset customers can choose to either hire a 6 or 8* yard skip for their waste clearance needs.

*8 yard skips can’t be used for inert materials due to the weight of the waste.

Which skip size is best for me?

To help you to decide the best skip size for your project, please see the below guidance or call our team on 01749 830688.

  • A single 6 yard skip can hold the equivalent of around 60 black bin bags
  • A single 8 yard skip can hold the equivalent of around 80 black bin bags

Pro tips for maximising your skip

  • Break larger bulky bits of waste into smaller pieces, wherever possible
  • Place weaker items at the bottom of the skip because these are more likely to be compressed as heavier items are placed on the top

Where do you deliver and how quickly?

Where possible, on weekdays, we aim to offer a same day skip hire service (sta) in Somerset. During busier times or for orders placed after 1pm we are normally able to offer skips deliveries and exchanges on the next working day.

Please note that for online orders we do have a booking cut-off time, so if you need a skip urgently it is best to call our friendly team on 01749 830688.

What waste types can be collected?

Where possible we will encourage you to hire a waste stream specific skip, as this is often cheaper for you and also makes it easier to recover and recycle high levels of the collected waste.

With this in mind, we have skips that collect several waste types:

How long can I hire a skip for?

A 2 week hire period is included in the price of your skip. It is possible for this period to be extended, however, this will need to be agreed before the 2 week hire period ends and may be subject to an additional rental fee.

We can also offer a Wait and Load service (where we wait for an agreed period of time at your site/property for you to fill the skip). This is great if you need a quick turnaround and don’t want a skip taking up valuable space.

If you need to amend the period of time you have your skip, please give us a call on 01749 830688.
