Skip Hire in London and the south east

Reliable and competitively priced commercial and domestic skip hire for London and the South East

LONDON and the South east

Powerday provides commercial and domestic skip hire across London and the South East.  A flexible, independent regional business, we can meet the individual needs of construction sites, commercial premises, local builders and householders.  With eight strategically located sites across the Capital, we can provide a competitively priced, prompt and efficient skip hire service wherever you are based.

We have an extensive supply of all types of containers in a range of sizes.  This includes standard and enclosed skips, wheeled bins, roll-on-offs, compactors and balers, as well as full tested crane-liftable containers.    

Reliable skip hire service

Whether a householder or a business, we understand that you require a reliable service which arrives when expected.  With an extensive and well-maintained fleet of tracked Euro 6 and ULEZ compliant vehicles, we provide an efficient and responsible service across the Capital and beyond, 7 days a week, with out of hours services available on request.  If you don’t have the space or need a site cleared quickly, we offer a wait and load service across London. Our drivers are all experienced in driving in the Capital and on construction sites, and the team includes drivers qualified at CPCS A39 skip handler standards.  Our friendly, helpful team also includes customer service assistants and account managers who help ensure we deliver the skip hire services you need when you need it.

If you need to have your skip placed on the road, you may need to obtain a skip hire permit. The rules and processes differ slightly in certain boroughs, but if you’re unsure of whether you need a permit, what type you need or how to get one, you can get help and advice from our dedicated team – it might be that you are required to go through us to gain the permit when it comes to skip hire in London.
