roll on roll off hire (ro-ro)
RoRo’s are the ideal solution for disposing large volumes of waste effectively, particularly in demolition and construction projects where there is a high volume of waste material. They can also be used for heavier material such as builders waste and large bulky items. We have 2 sizes available with capacity ranging from 16 to 35 yards. Our RoRo’s are not usually placed on a public highway due to their size.
New Forest skip hire permits costs
Most of our domestic skip hire orders are positioned in gardens or on driveways, so do not require a permit. If, however, you require a skip to be placed on a public road, then you will need to obtain a permit from your local council. Farwell's can arrange this for you, but please ensure that you schedule enough time within your planning, as it can take up to 5 working days for a permit to be issued and approved.
Wait and Load SKIP HIRE
Not all situations require skip hire, and in some circumstances using Farwell's wait and load service can save you time and money. If your waste is already in one location, or if space for a skip is restricted, then why not let someone else do all the heavy lifting for you, to get your waste removed?

The length of time that you hire a skip from us will impact the cost. We do not offer unlimited hiring periods and if your skip is placed on a public highway or council land you will need a permit which is up to 2 weeks. We can usually accommodate extensions to this at an additional charge. Usually our customers book in advance and know the period they want to hire the skip for.
