Our Fleet

We have three lorries, two 18 tonners and one 7.5 tonne lorry (this lorry is especially good for tighter access jobs but the weight limit is only 2.5 tonnes).

We have our lorries inspected every six weeks to comply with VOSA, the lorries are serviced and inspected out with normal hours so as not to interfere with our working day. Because of this we are able to offer a first class service to our customers and minimises down time for us! This offers a high level of reliability which is key to good service!

We are also in the process of doing our driver training course (CPC35 hour training course) this course will be compulsory by 2014.

We repair and replace damaged skips on an on going basis and pride ourselves on having a fleet of skips that are both of a high quality and in a satisfactory condition for the road.

We can supply cones for your skips and battens can also be requested, lighting may be required for your skip at night, (if you are outwith the distance from a lamp post as stipulated by the city council ) these can be purchased from ourselves. It is also a good idea to use a tarpaulin as this can put off fly tipping and contain the contents of the skip better, if we have any to spare we will supply if required.

Please contact our sales team and one of our staff will deal with your enquiry. We have knowlegeable and courteous staff on hand to help you as much as possible.
