Sorting your Skip Hire Permits in Southbourne

At Farwell’s, we do the hard work so that you don’t have too. Whilst you do not need to apply for a permit if your skip is being placed on private land (such as your driveway), a licence is required when using a public highway or pavement.

Here to make your life simpler, our organised team can arrange a skip hire permit on your behalf through your local authority. Please note, however, that this can take anything up to 7 days to process and obtain, so remember to schedule this into your planning.

Wait and Load Service

Not all situations require a skip. In some circumstances a wait and load lorry service can save you time, money and multiple trips to the skip. If space is of the essence or access restricted, when you place all your waste in one place, we will collect, load and dispose of it for you.

So why not let someone else take the strain and book Farwell’s wait and load lorry service instead?

Grab Lorry Hire

If you don’t want the hassle of loading a skip yourself or want to get rid of your waste in a hurry, then we can save you the trouble with our grab lorry hire service.

Taking care of it all, our grab hire lorries offer the perfect solution for the fast removal of your waste and are a low-cost alternative to other methods. Available to both commercial and residential customers, contact Farwell’s for more information.

ABout Southbourne

Southbourne is a lively, coastal suburb of Bournemouth, close to the charming market town of Christchurch. Here you will find the bustling streets packed with eclectic shops, buzzing bars and chilled-out cafes. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely walk along the stunning sea shore, pedal along the pretty promenade, eat a fish and chip supper on the beach or fly a kite off the cliffs of Hengistbury Head.

Southbourne’s main attraction, however, is its stunning Blue Flag beach. Whether you want to paddle in the surf, sink your feet into sugar soft sand or spend time building sandcastles, the heady mix of panoramic ocean views and fresh sea air offers the perfect escapism.

There are plenty of places to explore from Southbourne, including Fisherman’s Walk. This picturesque path follows the cliff tops through flora and fauna right down to the beach, and if you don’t fancy a stroll, jump on board the cliff lifts for a more unusual journey. If you have a head for heights, further east you can venture to the top of Hengistbury Head. Here you can wander through heathland, grassland and wetland enjoying stunning views of the Isle of Wight and Purbeck Coastline.
