Skip Hire – Do You Need a Permit?


If the skip is not placed on your drive then you will probably need a permit to put a skip on any part of the highway.

In Solihull this will cost your £66 per skip per calendar month. Your operator will also need a licence from Solihull Council. Allow at least 2 working days for your application to be processed.


In Birmingham you can only put a skip on the highway for 7-days and a licence for that will be £20. Please allow at least 5-working days. If you decide not to bother there is a charge £190 with associated costs charged to the operator. The charge on top of the £190 is £220 for removing the skip.

This is why our skip bags are so popular. They are much easier to put on your own property and then remove, leaving you with a considerable saving.

Skips often damage the ground they are put on, and the arms which are used to steady the vehicle whilst removing the scheme can push through many drives.
