The Rabbit Skip Range
Rabbit supply commercial or domestic customers with a wide range of skips – from mini-skips suitable for garden waste up to industrial container-sized skips capable of dealing with large-scale demolitions. With the exception of our grab & tip lorry, all our skips are delivered to your site and collected when they are full or when you have finished with them.

We describe the capacity of our skips either in cubic yards/metres or by the approximate number of plastic waste bags that each can hold. Be realistic when estimating how much waste you want to dispose of, since hiring a second skip can be far more costly than one big one!
Remember that all skips must be level-loaded so that they can be legally transported on the road.
For a large waste collection, it might be worth considering a very large on-site container (please call for further information).
When it is not practical to have a skip on your site, we can offer our ‘Grab & Tip’ Service where you simply create a pile of waste and we come and grab the waste into a vehicle.
Most customers have their skips placed on their driveway or land but, where this not possible, skips can be legally placed on the public highway or on a verge. However, skips placed on a public road must have a pre-applied Highway Permit from the County or City Council Authority and must have the correct signage and lights (not supplied by Rabbit). These permits are applied for and issued to the skip hire company. (The grass verge outside your house may not be owned by you and therefore you may need a permit, but councils do not normally allow skips on grass verges.) Please allow four working days for a road permit to be granted.
If you require a skip to be delivered on the road in an area where there are parking bays, pay to park, or residents parking permits then an additional permission is required, in the form of a bay suspension – THIS HAS TO BE SOUGHT BY THE HIRER FROM THE LOCAL COUNCIL AS THESE WILL NOT BE ISSUED TO THE SKIP COMPANY. Parking bay suspensions can normally be made on-line to the local council, or via the Town Hall or Parking Shop. We will need the bay suspension number prior to being able to deliver a skip into a bay or restricted area. We cannot deliver the skip before the permit has been granted, and parking bay suspension issued if necessary.
If you live in the Worthing and Adur Council area visit their parking pages for further information.
If you live in the Brighton & Hove City Council area find out more about their parking suspension here.
