Skip Sizes

You may hear people refer to skips as '4-Yarders' or '6-Yarders' - What does this mean?

Available Skip Sizes

Well, the number refers to the capacity of the skip in Cubic Yards, but...that still doesn't help most people visualise the size of the skip and decide which size is required. 
At Bobs Skips, we have decided that the easiest way to help you understand the size of the skip is to compare its capacity with normal everyday black bin bags. 

If you are still unsure what size you require, just give us a call!
