Farwell’s is a leading skip hire company
G. Farwell Ltd. was established in 1952 by George Farwell who sold two sows and their litter at Ringwood market and with the proceeds purchased a saw bench and an old tipper lorry to start up his own business. Over 65 years later, Farwell’s has grown to become one of the leading skip hire companies in the New Forest. We can provide you with a wide range of skip sizes for any domestic or commercial waste management project at competitive prices.

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.
Hampshire skip hire permits costs
You do not need to apply for a permit if your skip is being placed on your own private land - such as your driveway - however, a licence is required for any public road or pavement. Here to make your life simpler, G. Farwell Ltd. can arrange a Hampshire skip hire permit on your behalf. Our efficient team can assist you with the sorting of paperwork and permission as well as ensuring that you adhere to all the safety regulations, when placing it on a public highway. It can take up to 7 working days for your application to be processed and the licence agreed, and we are here to talk your though the process every step of the way.
Wait and Load SKIP HIRE
Farwell’s wait and load skip hire service will allow you to quickly move waste without having to place a skip on your property or public highway. Our wait and load service could be the right solution for you, especially if a permit won’t be granted by Hampshire County Council. It is particularly useful when space is limited, such as areas with tight access or where skips are not allowed to be left overnight. Like a refuse disposal lorry, once the waste has been created, we will turn up and wait whilst you load the skip.
RINGWOOD & Fordingbridge Grab Lorry Hire
Hiring one of our grab lorries to collect your waste can be more cost-effective. Farwell’s offer a flexible and convenient service which is ideal for less accessible areas such as over fences or walls. The hydraulic arm can reach and grab materials such as soil, builders waste, concrete and bricks, saving you the time and effort of loading skips.
Our grab lorry drivers are highly experienced operators and fully licensed to operate the grab crane. We take safety seriously and will consult with you prior to collection and onsite to ensure we fully understand your requirements and location. We can also use our grab lorries to deliver aggregates such as shingle, recycled concrete, scalpings, limestone and more – please see our range of aggregates.
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. We can accommodate for up 2 weeks, however we can also provide a quote for longer time periods. Council permits for placing your skip on the road are usually up to 2 weeks, for longer periods an additional fee will be charged.
Skip weight limits
The size and weight of a skip is measured in cubic yards, usually one cubic yard will contain up to one metric tonne of waste. If your placing soil or rubble in one of our skips please tell us at time of booking as the largest skip you can hire will usually be 6 or 8-yard. Larger skips will be too heavy for our lorries to lift once they have been loaded.
When disposing of your waste in one of ours skips, you should always consider what you are putting in it. There are certain items which are restricted. Usually, these items can be taken to the local Ringwood household waste recycling centre in Somerly, however a charge maybe incurred. Restricted items include:
