Another option available from some companies is to offer a 'wait and load' service. This means the skip will be delivered and the driver will wait while you load it and then take it away. This is ideal if you have a pile of waste ready for loading and don't require the skip for a longer period of time.
If there is no room on your property for the skip it will have to be placed on the public road/pavement. For a skip to be placed on the public road/pavement a permit from the local authority is required. Usually this permit can be arranged by the skip hire company when you order your skip.
