Unlike our other top 5 cities, London is really saturated with competitive skip companies bringing in an array of enticing services and price structures. Let's take a head dive and diverge the best skip hire companies in London.

No.1 – Reston Waste Skip Hire

Reston Waste Skip Hire, firstly, let's just praise them for one of their many 300+ happy customer reviews:

We are using Reston Skips for renovation works in London and cannot recommend them enough

Reston provides skip sizes from 6 yard to 12 yard and 18 yard to 50 yard Roll on / Roll out skips.

Not on private property? If you require the need of a skip permit Reston provides a Wait & Load Skip Service (you'll have 30 minutes to fill the skip before additional charges) – which essentially means that they'll deliver the skip, load it with waste and continue off to their sorting facilities without having to leave the skip on the permit.

Furthermore, if you do require the skip to be placed in a hard-to-reach area, you can request for a Crane Lift Skip Hire, instead of the standard services.

Additional services include waste transfer and recovery, construction waste recycling for people looking at achieving above 90% waste recycling.

No.2 – RMS Skip Hire

RMS Skip Hire, another great company with excellent customer reviews, they're able to reach over 35 different boroughs in London, this includes hard to reach areas on the outskirts of London.

RMS Skip hire Area coverage include:

In addition, they've got a really clear and transparent pricing, which can be viewed on their skip size page and order now section of their website, and this is one of our favourite features of skip hiring companies.

Similar to Reston, RMS also has a Wait & Load Skip Service (really useful when you don't have the time to obtain a permit), the only tricky part here is that you've only got 30 minutes to fill the skip, after which you'll begin to incur a £1 per/minute charge.

Finally, the standard time-frame you're able to hire skips from RMS is for 14 days, for anything longer you'd need to contact support with the information provided below.
